Asian Nanotechnology Industry 2007 Report

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on July 16th, 2007

Nanotechnology is one of the main Science & Technology (S&T) priority areas for Asia-Pacific governments. Japan has been investing in nanoscience since the 1980s and is now number two to the USA in terms of government investment. South Korea and China have revised and improved their national initiatives over the past year and Australia and India have recently announced significant new national investments in nanoscience and nanotechnology.

The rationale of all these governments is the same, and their national strategies are tailored accordingly: the exploitation of nanotechnology for new products and processes.

Nanoelectronics, nanobiotechnology and nanomaterials are the main focus areas for the majority of national strategies, and most Asia-Pacific governments are making targeted investments in nanotechnology to gain advantage in a particular sector.

For example:

* South Korea: nanoelectronics
* Taiwan: nanoelectronics
* Singapore: nanobiotechnology
* China: nanomaterials.

Asian-Pacific governments have realized the importance of having dedicated centers for the nanotechnology and are laying the groundwork for commercialization by establishing world-class infrastructure and human resources. The utilization of top level infrastructure and equipment is viewed as crucial for achieving commercially viable nanotechnology.
