DUBLIN, October 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets
(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c26582) has announced the addition
of The World Nanotechnology Market 2005 to their offering.
Nanotechnology, the science of minuscule molecule with its continuous
developments, is undoubtedly becoming a very important aspect for modern
life. Its impact is most felt in sectors like biotechnology, electronics,
energy and industrial products. The nano tools of nanostructured materials
are used to make items like nanotubes, nanoelectronics, nanocatalysts,
nanophotonic devices, nanosensors and other nano devices.
A market research report "World Nanotechnology Market - An industry
Update (2005)" is an in depth study of the commercial potentials and the
economic advantages of this recent technology in the global nanotechnology
market. The market research report predicts that nanotechnology would exceed
$1,000 billion by end 2010 in the world economy. The increase in demand for
nanoscale materials, tools and devices would reach $28.7 billion in as soon
as 2008. These would help medical scientists, engineers and other researchers
to invent and innovate in the fields of health, IT, communications and
To facilitate R&D, government has increased nanotechnology spending to
over $3 billion per annum. At the same time, the venture capitalists have
also increased their investments six times over the previous two years. For
instance, companies like Intel, IBM, DuPont, 3M, General Electric, Samsung
and Hitachi have spent $3.8 billion in 2004. This has been divided into 46%
by nanotechnology companies in North America, 36% by Asian companies, 17% by
European companies and about 1% by rest of the world. The National
Nanotechnology Initiative has declared a fund of $982 million for
nanotechnology R&D for 2006.
The market research report deals with nanotechnology applications
worldwide. It gives the status of nanotechnology patents and IP, market for
nanoparticles, and annual sales of nanotechnology tools and instruments. The
market research report delineates the activities of important companies, the
national and local governments' expenditure on nanotechnology R&D in emerging
technologies and evaluates the challenges and how to overcome them.
