Nanotechnology Opportunity Report (NOR) 2008

(Nanowerk News) The Nanotechnology Opportunity Report (NOR) 2008, 3rd Edition provides the most comprehensive report on the economic impact of nanotechnologies the author has released to date. The report contains over 1,000 pages, several thousand figures and tables, and offers full market forecasts for the key industrial sectors impacted by nanotech, including:
  • Electronics & Semiconductors
  • Textiles
  • Energy
  • Food
  • Drug Delivery
  • Chemicals & Advanced Materials
  • Printing & Packaging
  • Automotive
  • Aerospace & Defense
  • Medical Devices & Therapeutics
  • Medical Diagnostics
  • The first edition of The Nanotechnology Opportunity Report in 2002 was described by NASA as “a breakthrough… the first complete report of the state of our field” and the new edition is the first complete picture of the economic impact of nanotechnologies.
    Following ten years and billions of dollars of government funding the report charts the influence of nanotechnologies in shifting from merely observing nature to choreographing it.
    Designed for corporate strategists and policy advisors, The Nanotechnology Opportunity Report 2008 looks at the current and future impact of nanotech based on sound and tested economic models based on technology diffusion, returns on government funded R&D and corporate R&D in over a thousand companies wordwide.
    One CEO explained, “In 2002 we predicted that there would be no nanotechnology industry and the recent failed IPOs and collapse of ‘pure play nanotech’ companies has shown the value of our rational approach to nanotechnologies. In the past seven years almost a billion dollars of venture capital money has been poured down the drain as a result of not understanding the crucial difference between a science project and a successful company. However there are increasing numbers of companies generating solid revenues from nanotechnologies.”
