Nanotechnology Market Dynamics
Increase in government support and funding for nanotechnology
The rise in government support and funding for nanotechnology is presenting a huge impact on market growth. Nanoscience and nanotechnology are the two most important fields for today’s innovation leaders. Nanotechnology is also a key element of advanced manufacturing, which is being influenced by a broadening application across industrial countries that include Australia, Canada, Germany, France, Japan, Korea, and the United States. For instance, the BRICS countries are all set to accelerate nanotechnology promotion and nanotechnology hubs. In addition, the U.S. federal government leads the world in research and development funding for nanotechnology-related products and solutions. In addition, the United States President’s 2018 Budget provided USD 1.2 billion for the nanotechnology initiative in May 2017, aimed to support innovation and research and development in the field of nanotechnology. This sanction amount is likely to increase as the President’s Budget 2020 demanded USD 1.4 billion for the National Nanotechnology Initiative seeking sustained investment in basic research, early-stage applied research, and technology transfer efforts. This high investment leads to the development of nanomaterials, and their use in multiple application sectors, which eventually contributes to higher market growth in the region. Hence, the rising demand for nanomaterials and government funding for nanotechnology is prompting the demand for nanotechnology, which is augmenting the market growth across the globe.
