Manipulation of matter on the scale of the molecules and atoms, nanotechnology is a powerful tool enabling products which people need in their daily life. It has the potential to transform many industrial sectors, among of which is the printing industry, from printing inks to the printing process. A lot of achievements in the printing industrial sector is being done by the pioneers in the field of ink jet printing and suppliers of ink raw materials since they have a strong position to draw the future of ink technologies. Many nanostructures have been widely studied for inks applications. Inks containing gold, silver, and magnetic nanoparticles can be easily printed onto various types of substrates because the nanoparticles being so small that they seep into the pores available on the surface of substrate. This feature provides users with the highest ink performance optimization in properties such as conductivity, adhesion, and flexibility, in a wide range of applications.

Nano-based products of the rprinting industrial sector are classified into the following subdivisions:

1. Inks
2. Printers
3. Papers

The keywords have used to build up the printing industrial sector nanoproducts database are as follows: 

Nano + printing paper, ink, printer, aqueous inks, liquid ink, paste ink, powder ink, toner-based printers, liquid inkjet printers, solid ink printers, dye-sublimation printers, thermal printers, impact printers, typewriter-derived printers, teletypewriter-derived printers, daisy wheel printers, dot-matrix printers, line printers, liquid ink electrostatic printers, copy paper, ledger, manifold, and paper cup.
