The nanotechnology market, and nanoelectronics in particular is one of the most rapidly growing sectors in the technology industries.  Here are some reports and studies from the media.

NanoTech Magazine - A 3rd-Party Validation

of Nanotech Market Potentials

Interestingly, Nanotech Magazine, a publication from Future Markets Inc. recently published an updated analysis (May 2017) of the global market for “Quantum Dots.”  A summary of the report is given on this link.  The report can also be purchased from Future Markets Inc. on the link.

Without getting too technical, Quantum Dots (QD’s) are very small semiconductor particles. They are a central theme in nanotechnology.  Many types of quantum dot will emit different colours of light, and the colours can be tuned by changing the dots' size, shape and material, giving rise to many applications.

Because of their highly tunable properties, QDs are of wide interest.  Potential applications include transistors, solar cells, LEDs, diode lasers, quantum computing, and medical imaging.  By far the largest market is for High Definition TVs.  Other notable growth markets include solid-state lighting, sensors and anti-counterfeiting.

Manufacturers will use QD’s on the production line, incorporating the QD technology into end products.

Why this is of interest to us is that the Quantum ShieldWall nanoelectronics materials (QS) we are developing are targeted to be employed by manufacturers on the production line in a similar manner, building it into end products.  The end use is different than QDs, but the target market is the same - electronics manufacturers.

Quantum ShieldWall actually has a broader range of applications than QDs for manufacturers.  QS is targeted to be employed in as much as 95% of electronic products, not just HD TVs, solid state lighting etc.


Smart coatings, considered an emerging technical area, are constantly evolving on account of the sustained pace of development in the domain of nanotechnology and the unveiling of advanced materials.  Quantum ShieldWall is just such a coating.

This report from takes a look at properties of smart coatings, including self healing, one of the features of Quantum ShieldWall.

Nanoelectronics in Aerospace

Primarily, there are three types of nanomaterials employed in aerospace manufacturing: nanostructured metals, polymer nanocomposites, and anti-corrosion coatings, and now with Quantum ShieldWall*, electronics is also entering the arena.

The use of nanotechnology or nanomaterial ensures that an airborne platform retains its operational superiority, enhances the physical properties of structural and non-structural polymers used in the construction of an aircraft, and deliver efficient nano and micro sensors used in spacecraft. The resultant components also prevent corrosion, thereby increasing the longevity of the platform.
