Browse 18 Market Tables, 66 Figures spread through 179 Pages and an in-depth TOC on "Nanotechnology Market (2016 - 2021)" Nanotechnology has the potential to solve problems related to human civilizations, pertaining to both basic needs and aspirations for a comfortable life. Even though nanotechnology involves the manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular and supramolecular scale, the particular technological goal is of precisely manipulating atoms and molecules for fabrication of macro scale products, also now referred to as molecular nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is evolving towards becoming a general-purpose technology by 2020, encompassing four generations of products with increasing structural and dynamic complexity: Huge expectation from the society: By knowing the advantages and benefits of nanotechnology, people are waiting for the breakthrough of nanotechnology products in all areas of the consumer requirements in the society. Opportunity for new innovative product development: Based on substantial advantages and hence expected huge demand for nanotech products, there are infinite opportunities for new product development in different areas of the society. Opportunity for both small business and mega business players based on their investment capacity: Since nanotechnology products vary from simple cosmetic product to screen infrared rays from skin to artificial food products to self-generating molecular motors, depending on the interest and capability of firm, it can focus on a particular type of product so that both small and financially strong business firms have opportunity in nanotechnology product development and marketing. Opportunity for new product development for entrepreneurs in their existing field itself so that they can use their experience: Being general purpose technology, nanotechnology provides scope for existing firms to upgrade their products/services. Hence, the existing entrepreneurs can plan to improve their products by improving them using nanotechnology features for improved performance. The new discoveries and innovations get patent protection to commercialize their inventions, so that the investment of the firms will not be wasted due to their right to get patent protection for their inventions. The new technology gives an opportunity to explore new business and sustainable earnings through the use of systematic commercialization process. New inventions based on new technology, usually attract attention due to their ingenuity, but a product must also be useful and compelling, enabling it to be used in everyday life. The objective of the firm is to identify a market for its new products. From a business perspective, the steps to be followed for the successful commercialization of a nanotechnology based product include market size, market potential, and the economic scenario of the countries and the people who use such products. Common challenges faced by nanotechnology firms are: Time Lag: The average time delay between research, completion, and commercialization of a nanotechnology product can lie between three to five years. The banks and other financial funding agencies, find this time lag to be a major detriment due to the fact of the block of their capital. Valley of Death: This is the gap between a positive scientific result of a researcher and obtaining supporting funds for commercialization and prototyping of the product. Since the cost of commercialization is very high compared to the invention cost of the product, usually, the scientist who invented the product may not have the interest in commercialization, but the firms invested for such research have to spend to en-cash its business opportunity. Lack of infrastructure: Nanotechnology product based research is expensive and requires costly instruments. The lack of infrastructure retards the progress of new product invention. Lack of standard for evaluation: A major obstacle for developing Nano-products is the lack of standards for evaluation of performance at different stages of research. Because of this, normalizing standards by which nanotechnologies can be evaluated are lacking which affects the patenting process. Bureaucratic delays: Patent policies take up to thirty-six months to respond to a single application, a serious problem when even a slight delay can be detrimental. Due to lack of a coherent policy on technology transfer from universities to start-up businesses and a considerable red tape must be dealt with for any such transfer using black ocean strategy. Dearth of funding: Since the research in nanotechnology is capital intensive due to the state-of-the-art instruments requirement, firms face challenges in obtaining funding. Thus, commercialization of nanotechnology products requires huge investments which small to medium firms cannot secure easily. Lack of trained professionals: The lack of sufficiently trained scientists, engineers, technicians, and researchers in the field is another barrier. This is mostly due to lack of addition of Nano science and technology in the engineering and science syllabus. Sustainability in the market: The final challenge for the firms is maintaining the sustainability for the commercialized product or service for longer time to get the return on investment and expected profits through planning and executing proper marketing strategies.

Thin Solid Films | Year: 2013

A transparent carbon nanotube (CNT)-coated polyethylenterephthalat film was used as conducting substrate for the photoanode of a flexible ZnO-based dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC). The porous ZnO films were fabricated by an electrochemical deposition method at low temperature. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy revealed that the CNT/ZnO interface adds to the overall impedance of the cell, leading to a higher series resistance compared to DSSCs based on substrates employing a transparent conducting oxide. Nevertheless, an overall conversion efficiency of 2.5% was obtained with porous ZnO films electrodeposited on the CNT substrate for 60 min. Thicker films led to an increased loss by recombination, which could not be compensated by faster electron transport due to the decrease of the light intensity inside the ZnO film with increasing distance from the back contact. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

We have studied the contact resistance (RC) between Au and a solution-processed film of carbon nanotubes (CNTs). The test element group of the contact chain is modeled as a simple periodic series of resistors, the RC represents the resistor of the Au-CNT contact. The contact resistivity (ρC) was evaluated from RC by multiplying the contact area. When the sheet resistance (Rsh) of the CNT layer is 200 Ω/sq, the ρC is 27 μΩ cm2, which is ∼30 times of that of the Au-IZO contact at the same Rsh. This is mainly due to the three-dimensional shape of the CNT surface, resulting in a smaller contact area on the flat surface of the Au. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are high aspect ratio conducting nanocylinders possessing unprecedented mechanical, thermal, optical, and electronic properties. They are ideal building blocks for use in assembling a randomly oriented, highly connected nanoporous network. When this network is deposited on top of a substrate surface as a thin film with a thickness in the range of 10-100 nm, it becomes a transparent conducting film-an ubiquitous material, currently dominated by tin-doped indium oxide (ITO). This article reviews recent progress in CNT transparent conducting films and discusses fundamental properties of CNTs important for the formation of these films, methods for CNT dispersion and assembling CNTs into transparent conducting films, properties of the CNT transparent conducting films, and issues remaining to be solved in order to make these films a commercially viable alternative to ITO. © 2011 Materials Research Society.

Carbon nanotubes have quickly emerged over the last several years as a potential candidate material to replace metal oxides in devices which require transparent and conductive electrodes. Typically, these materials are coated onto substrates such as PET and PEN for flexible electrodes and glass for rigid electrodes. Recently, there has been interest in more durable and lightweight substrates to replace glass, one such substrate being polycarbonate. Sputter coating of indium tin oxide onto polycarbonate leads to low conductivity and inconsistent results, due to out-gassing and materials mismatch issues. In this work, it is shown that direct coating of carbon nanotubes onto polycarbonate leads to high-performance films with facile manufacturing. © Copyright 2011 Society for Information Display.

Transparent electrodes are a necessary component in many modern devices such as touch screens, LCDs, OLEDs, and solar cells, all of which are growing in demand. Traditionally, this role has been well served by doped metal oxides, the most common of which is indium tin oxide, or ITO. Recently, advances in nano-materials research have opened the door for other transparent conductive materials, each with unique properties. These include CNTs, graphene, metal nanowires, and printable metal grids. This review will explore the materials properties of transparent conductors, covering traditional metal oxides and conductive polymers initially, but with a focus on current developments in nano-material coatings. Electronic, optical, and mechanical properties of each material will be discussed, as well as suitability for various applications. Copyright © 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

Thin Solid Films | Year: 2010

This paper describes a durable carbon nanotube (CNT) film for flexible devices and its mechanical properties. Films as thin as 10 nm thick have properties approaching those of existing electrodes based on indium tin oxide (ITO) but with significantly improved mechanical properties. In uniaxial tension, strains as high as 25% are required for permanent damage and at lower strains resistance changes are slight and consistent with elastic deformation of the individual CNTs. A simple model confirms that changes in electrical resistance are described by a Poisson's ratio of 0.22. These films are also durable to cyclic loading, and even at peak strains of 10% no significant damage occurs after 250 cycles. The scratch resistance is also high as measured by nanoscratch, and for a 50 μm tip a load of 140 mN is required to cause initial failure. This is more than 5 times higher than is required to cause cracking in ITO. The robustness of the transparent conductive coating leads to significant improvement in device performance. In touch screen devices fabricated using CNT no failure occurs after a million actuations while for devices based on ITO electrodes 400,000 cycles are needed to cause failure. These durable electrodes hold the key to developing robust, large-area, lightweight, optoelectronic devices such as lighting, displays, electronic-paper, and printable solar cells. Such devices could hold the key to producing inexpensive green energy, providing reliable solid-state lighting, and significantly reducing our dependence on paper. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
