The economic downturn has hit key nano-enabled product segments hard â?? in particular, auto, construction, and electronics.? Lower output and slower technology adoption in these industries will ripple up the value chain to nanointermediates and nanomaterials, leading to total revenue from products incorporating nanotechnology of $2.5 trillion in 2015 – down 21% from our previous projections.? The changes will put large corporations in the driver’s seat, force start-ups to break even or bust, and demand creative action from governments.? At the same time, big ideas are on the horizon:? Academic research in nanotech is growing at ten times the rate of scientific study overall, and companies are aligning themselves with research labs to stake claims on early-stage technologies.? Our review of academic nanotech research finds Asian countries leading, carbon nanotubes and coatings/composites applications on the downswing, and graphene and life sciences applications rising.? From the body of research, we identify five promising technologies – nanomotors, metamaterials, silicon nanowire thermelectrics, graphene transistors, and plasmon-enhanced solar cells – that stand poised to have the highest commercial impact.? In this presentation, Lux Research’s Mark Bünger will present market data, technology trends, and the latest in applications relevant to the IEEE community, including sensors and diagnostics, nanoelectronics, coatings, and other areas.
