Research and Markets: Global Market and Applications for Nanotechnology in the Life Sciences and Healthcare Industries

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on March 9th, 2009

Nanotechnology is beginning to have an enormous impact on the pharmaceutical, medical devices, implants, imaging and diagnostics sectors, with annual markets of billions of dollars predicted within ten years.

According to nanoposts.com, life sciences and healthcare products enabled by nanomaterials currently represent a $1 billion plus market in 2009. First generation products on the market include nano-titania coated implants, nanoparticulate pharmaceuticals, anti-bacterial coatings for medical supplies and healing wound dressings.

The second wave of products and processes holds even greater promise, with exploitation of the properties of nanomaterials allowing for early diagnosis, detection and treatment of disease and replacement of bone and tissue for regenerative purposes. Long-term biocompatible implants and non-invasive targeted therapeutics to treat cancer are potentially achievable based on current R&D advances.
