Lux Research conference call will advise clients on nanotech opportunities and threats in China
Today, China lags behind Western nations in nanotechnology – the purposeful engineering of matter at scale of less than 100 nanometers to achieve size-dependent properties and functions. But trends in Chinese nanotech research have set the world’s largest nation on a course to challenge dominant nanotech players like the U.S., Japan, and Germany. China’s nanotech efforts will have broad-reaching implications for issues ranging including energy independence, military capabilities, and development of the domestic high-tech sector.
Consider these examples of China’s nanotech growth:
The Lux Research team recently conducted a research trip in China, conducting on-site interviews and facilities tours at 15 nanotech start-up companies, government labs, and academic centers in Shenzhen, Shanghai, and Beijing. On Friday November 11, the team will host a conference call to share their findings with Lux Research clients and advise them on what partnership targets, investment opportunities, and competitive threats are emerging from the nation.
“China’s nanotech efforts matter to our clients in multinational corporations and investment management firms,” said Lux Research Vice President of Research Matthew M. Nordan. “On one hand, China presents opportunities – companies like Shanghai Kangyu Industry and Commerce have been much more successful than Western peers at getting their nanoparticles into commercial products, and fascinating academic research like the ‘molecular surgery’ approach by Dr. Min-qian Li is ripe for commercial licensing. On the other hand, China also presents competition. Many nanoparticle producers we spoke with have their eyes on global markets and undercut Western rivals by up to 50%.”
The conference call is open to clients of Lux Research’s Nanotechnology Strategies advisory service. For more information on how to become a client, contact Nick Katsoulis at +1 (212) 644-9563.
