The Global Market for Nanoscale Technologies

New York, NY | Posted on March 3rd, 2009

The Global Market for Nanoscale Technologies is an 830 page report providing the most comprehensive global market assessment yet of industrial applications for nanoscale technologies. Nanotechnology continues to be a thriving area of R&D in 2008. Public funding of nanotechnology worldwide in 2008 was over $6.7 with further investment of US$5 billion committed by the Russian government and a raft of new initiatives and centres in countries such as UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Israel, Cuba and Brazil.

Nanotechnology is fast becoming an important business area for companies in a diverse range of industries, from oil exploration to optical cabling. Private investment in 2008 was over $5.6 billion, with the electronics and medical sectors set to witness the greatest returns over the next 5-7 years. The global market for nanotechnology presents a comprehensive insight into worldwide activity and initiatives from basic research to final products. This report is the definitive guide to what's happening in nanotechnology, now and in the future.

Contents include:

- Global public and private funding and initiatives

- Current and future market trends and drivers

- The global market for nanoparticles, nanopowders, nanocoatings, nanocomposites, nanocapsules, nanotubes, nanofibres, nanowires, fullerenes and quantum dots

- The impact of nanotechnology on sectors such as aerospace and defence, electronics, energy, life sciences and healthcare, textiles, environment, water, food, construction, consumer goods, household care, security, automotive, chemicals and coatings

- Country by country analysis on government bodies, networks, research centres, universities and companies in nanotechnology
