1. Nanotechnology Contributions at a Glance
This sector includes the products which cannot be fallen into the categories classified by NPD and contains data about 487 nanoproducts of 168 various types. These products are introduced into global markets by 222 companies, the headquarters of which are located in 31 different countries. Composites and polymers, electronics and appliances, nanomaterials, toys and baby accessories, and handicrafts come into this sector.
Rheology modifiers, resins, reinforcements, granules, cut-resistant glove, and various the additives used in lubricants, rubbers, and flame retardant materials are commonly introduced by composites and polymers manufacturers.
Among nanomaterials mention can be made of nanofluids, silver/gold colloids, and metallic solutions such as copper, nickel, zinc, and aluminum as well as anodic oxide coatings and magnetic particles.
A broad spectrum of toys and baby accessories such as nursing bottles, teethers, pacifiers, baby carriages, strollers, drinking bottles, food trays, rear wheels, safety bars, helicopters, quadcopters, dolls, string playthings, robots, and educational packages are also commercially available in the markets. In addition, manufacturers are recently interested in producing electronics and appliances such as wireless detectors, imprinters, metrology systems, shoe sanitizers, multileaf collimators, image viewing systems, rtlink systems, radiation treatment planning systems, gas separator, pattern generators, paper cutters, thermoelectric automotive systems, air cooling systems, security systems, laser markers, workstations, cryo liftout systems, hydrogen recycling systems, and homogenizers.
CD mat, polished wafer, LED silicone package, light guide plate, diffusion plate, drill, plasma, conductive thermal compound, screw, jewellery polish, reticle, heatspreader, stainless steel, and lipophilic modifier, to name bud a few are also the novel nano-based products recorded in the database.
Various nanostructures on the basis of clay, silver, gold, diamond, CNT, graphene, titanium nitride, titanium carbide, titanium aluminium nitride, silicon dioxide, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, aluminum oxide, hydroxyapatite, polypropylene, and polyethylene are commonly incorporated into the mentioned product types, giving rise to enabling or enhancing considerable properties, the most monitored of which are anti-bacterial activity, anti-fungal activity, deodorization, rheological modification, mechanical resistance, tenacity, thermal stability, wear resistance, waterproofing, abrasion resistance, scratch resistance, UV protection, thixotropic effect, anti-sagging effect, chemical stability, and fireproofing.
