Our patent-based analysis confirms that nanotechnology sees global development and application, with strong growth in R&D in Asian countries - especially China - over the past five years. There are indications that the nanotechnology space is maturing commercially, with an increased number of major corporate players observed in the patent literature and with some players shifting focus from basic research to the development of specific nano-enabled products and devices.
Overall, nanotechnology patent application rates rise as public and private investments into nanotechnology R&D increase over time. This general rise in global nanotechnology patent applications masks a slow-down in patenting rates in some nanotechnology sub-sectors. CambridgeIP’s prior research identifies the slow-down starting in the period 2002 - 2004 in some nanotechnology sub-spaces, and identifies some of the likely drivers of the slow-down.
