and Markets has announced the addition of the "The Nanotechnology Opportunity
Report (NOR) 2008, 3rd Edition" report to their offering.
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
- Drug Delivery
- Chemicals & Advanced Materials
- Printing & Packaging
- 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
Our 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.”
Value Of Nano-Enabled Products Reaches $166.6 Billion In 2008; Global Funding
For Nanotechnology In 2008 Amounts To Over $25 Billion With A Billion Dollars
Of Venture Capital Generating Scant Return
The author releases the Nanotechnology Opportunity Report™ (NOR), 3rd
Edition, “the defining report in the field of nanotechnology” according
While some lament the lack of nanotech IPOs, nanoscience has evolved over the
last seven years since the first Nanotechnology Opportunity Report™ into
a stable technology platform enabling a new range of higher value products.
This new edition of the NOR distils everything that the author has learned
over the past ten years into one document. It highlights the companies and technologies
making real returns on investment and questions whether VCs can invest in emerging
technology in the 21st Century without rethinking their 20th Century business
CEO, Tim Harper explained, “In 2001 we predicted that there would not
be a ‘nanotechnology industry’ and the recent slew of failed IPOs
and collapse of ‘pure play nanotech’ companies has validated the
value of the author’s rational approach. Almost a billion dollars of investors
cash has been poured down the drain by investors who did not understand the
crucial difference between a science project and a successful company, egged
on by a plethora of nanotech ‘experts,’ while large corporations
have laughed all the way to the bank.”
