Nanotechnology: A technology boon for consumers

Manufacturers have advanced their technology portfolio while entering a new era of technology. This era has emerged with major technology advancements, such as Nanotechnology, for the benefit of the consumers. Nanotechnology can reduce the size of the molecule dimensions and tolerances to less than 100 nm and reduce the size of the product without affecting its performance. This technology will help to massively increase manufacturing production at significantly reduced costs. This technology has a variety of applications ranging from nano-medicine, oil & gas extraction, to the reduction of chip size, making the mobile devices sleeker. Many governments believe that this technology will bring a new era of productivity and wealth, which is reflected in the way investments towards nanotechnology R&D have risen during the past decade.

Nanotechnology is poised to grow significantly in near future

The global nanotechnology market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 17% during the forecast period, 2018-2024. The top three applications of nanotechnology are electronics, energy, and biomedical, which account for over 70% share of the global nanotechnology market. A separate budget is also allocated by the US government every year towards the research of the technology, which could lead to technical breakthroughs in the future.

Nanotechnology has a substantial impact on chipset miniaturization

Nanotechnology has contributed to major advances in computing and electronics, leading to faster, smaller, and more portable systems that can manage and store a larger amount of information. With the help of this technology, the chipset size is getting reduced, without affecting the performance of a device.

E.g., A chipset is made of several transistors, and more the number of transistors, higher will be the processing, thus increasing the efficiency. A smaller chipset size will make the device sleek, while the higher number of transistors will make it more efficient and faster. The use of nanomaterial in sensors has significantly increased the accuracy and sensitivity of the devices to the extent that a small amount of the desired material can be detected at short notice.

The technology has had a positive impact on society, government, and business, with improved productivity and close monitoring of nearly every aspect within these segments. IBM, TSMC, AMD, Intel, and other competitors are working aggressively towards miniaturization of the chipsets and are planning to bring down the size to 3 nm by 2022 as compared to 5 nm in 2019.

Nanotechnology will be beneficial for various industries and the government in the future

Nanotechnology will be helpful not only to manufacturers or consumers, it will also help the government in maintaining peace within the society. It will be used in medical science to cure many diseases, in electronics, by reducing the size on the internal components and improving the performance, and in many other aspects, which are described in the below whitepaper.
