Research and Markets has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's
new report "Advances
in Nanosensors" to their offering.
This Frost & Sullivan research service titled 'Advances in Nanosensors'
provides an overview of the nanosensor industry, its technology growth accelerating
and inhibiting factors, and the various strategies that have been adopted to
tackle the associated problems. In this research, Frost & Sullivan's expert
analysts thoroughly examine the following markets: biomedical, defense or security,
industrial process control, environmental monitoring, automotive, and agriculture.
With several industries proving somewhat reluctant to be early adopters of
new technologies, nanoscience developers will face challenges in proving their
technology's capabilities in real-world conditions. This cautious wait-and-watch
approach of end users has rather constrained nanosensor technologies from achieving
their potential for technical innovation and progress, causing nanosensor technologies
to remain at an emerging stage. This has belied its promise of widespread commercialization
and potential to open up new sensor markets in diverse applications such as
chemical sensors, biosensors, and wireless sensing networks, driven by the ability
to create significantly smaller, more sensitive, faster-responding, and less
costly sensors. "Scientists will have to ensure that they iron out the
several technical difficulties and issues of high production costs encountered
during technology development in laboratory environments," says the analyst
of this research. "Being a disruptive technology, such diligence is crucial
if nanosensing solutions are to be considered market worthy."
Research and development in the nanosensor domain is driven by specific market
or application requirements and societal concerns.. As the sensor industry is
highly fragmented, it is difficult to identify the nanosensing product that
is likely to do well commercially in the immediate future. It is equally tricky
to spot the sensor market segment that is likely to be most influenced by nanotechnology,
as new opportunities are spawned on a daily basis.
"The identification of market needs at the extreme ends of the supply
chain provides a solid leveraging platform and definitive roadmap for subsequent
developments for specific cases," notes the analyst. "Collaborations
between manufacturers in different segments of the supply chain can facilitate
better understanding of market needs, upon which the technology developers can
fine tune their products to meet customer requirements and accelerate the entry
of the product into the industrial space."
