Market Analysis

Nanotechnology refers to a wide range of technologies conducted on functional systems at the nanometer scale. It can be said that nanotechnology is the ability that can be projected to construct items either using the bottom-up approach or using the top-down approach, whereby top-down nanotechnology is considered to be the most well-established form of nanotechnology. In the year 2015, Information and communication technology industry held the major share in the nanotechnology market accounting for almost 55% and followed by energy with a share of 25% during the forecast period of 2016 to 2025.

The nanotechnology market can be segmented by type, application, end-user and geography exclusively. The market is categorized in to various categories such as nanocomposites, nanofibers, nanoceramics, nanomagnetics and more based on the types of nanotechnology commercially available. Every single type of nanotechnology differs greatly and the composition is different with different technical specifications. The crucial user segments include electronics & semiconductors, biotechnology, textile, military, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, food, automobiles and others. Increasing importance on renewable and sustainable energy sector with the use of low cost materials fuels the growth of nanotechnology

The importance can also be measured by the increasing research expenditures worldwide: In 1998 governments all over the world spent around $600 million on research and development in nanotechnologies; in 2002, this expenditure totalled $2.1 billion; and in 2006 investments of nearly $6 billion were expected. European spending in development nanotechnology is similar to that of the US and Japan. 

Nanotechnology in Austria

Gross domestic expenditure on research and development in Austria is well above the EU average. Investment from foreign companies in R&D in Austria has been rising for years and is at an extremely high level, while domestic industry has doubled expenditure on R&D over the last 10 years. There are many successfully exported Austrian products and services such as:

A Rich Scientific Heritage

In 1943 the Austrian Paul Eisler invented the printed circuit board, a device that supports and connects electrical components and which today is found in almost every electronic device. Today the Austrian company AT & S is the largest printed circuit board manufacturer in Europe and India and significantly involved in China. The company from Leoben has a top global position in the highest technology segment, HDI Microvia printed boards which are predominantly used in mobile devices. The group also operates successfully in the research and development of modern automotive circuit boards as well as in the industrial and medical technology sectors.

Solid Research Principles

Austrian scientists are today considered among the very best in the world in the field of quantum computer research. The two theoretical physicists from Innsbruck, Peter Zoller and Hans Briegel, along with the experimental physicist from Vienna, are among the world’s most cited experts in the field. The framework for developing new technologies is exceptionally favourable in Austria. The breadth of the Austrian research landscape is breathtaking: from traditional, principle-based research right through to cutting-edge areas of applied science. Operations research is often found in innovative SMEs.

Micro Technology and Nanotechnology

Micro technology and nanoscience represent highly promising technologies of the future and are given considerable weight in Austria, particularly as regards solid state electronics and materials science. The most important nanotechnology products and areas of application include Pigments and other additives for varnishes and plastics, Processors, Surface coatings (e.g. tiles, bathtubs, worktops), Manufacture of dental filling materials and Medical application of nanoparticles for new types of diagnosis and therapy. There are currently around 100 Austrian companies applying their knowledge of nanotechnology, while countless companies are active in areas where nanotechnology will play a key role in the future, such as microelectronics, optics, medical technology, sensor technology, materials science, pharmaceutical industry, automotive industry, textile industry, aviation and space travel.

In order to promote nanosciences and nanotechnologies in Austria specifically, the Austrian Council for Research and Technology Development (RFT), recommended setting up an Austrian NANO Initiative as early as 2002. In 2004, this initiative was established as a multi-annual funding program - aiming at increased networking, creating critical masses, making nanosciences and nanotechnologies utilizable for the economy and for society, and providing an adequate number of qualified technical staff. The Austrian NANO Initiative capitalizes on this variety as one of the strengths of their program and by intensive networking of science and industry enables the development of highly innovative state-of-the-art products with new physical or chemical properties.

The Austrian NANO Initiative places an emphasis on expanding the research competence by additional education and training opportunities, as well as by targeted funding of small and medium-sized enterprises. It funds innovative high technology at the interface between basic and application-oriented research and uses national potential for targeted internationalization, networking, and qualification measures. The Nano scale Sciences and Nanotechnologies (NANO) Initiative is a multi-annual funding program in Austria, which coordinates on national and regional levels and is supported by several Ministries, Federal provinces, and funding institutions under the overall control of the Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT). Managed by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) on behalf of the BMVIT, the focus and structure of the Austrian NANO Initiative were developed in cooperation with scientists, entrepreneurs, and stakeholders.

In the first period of the Austrian NANO Initiative (2004-2006), an overall public budget of €35 million was provided for highly innovative research and technology development projects. Seven outstanding RTD Project Clusters are currently funded, after undergoing an international peer review, and more than 100 industry partners and research organizations all over Austria participate in these successful NANO Clusters. The Clusters are encouraged to further enlarge their consortia by adding new projects. The Austrian NANO Initiative also provides funds for exploring innovative ideas as well as for conceiving, organizing and carrying out events.

Nanotechnology-related education and training in Austria

The Austrian NANO Initiative is providing funds to build up and expand the human resources required to ensure the qualitative and quantitative growth of NANO in Austria. Funding is provided for education and training measures for positive development within the higher education sector (universities, universities of applied sciences), the vocational training sector, and the general-education secondary school sector, as well as for the support of enterprises involving nanosciences and nanotechnologies.

Austrian businesses expect a significant deployment of nano products and production technologies by 2010. In addition to the projected increase in nano production, intensified fundamental nano research is expected. Two main developments can be extrapolated from this: The demand for highly qualified personnel for R&D positions will increase steeply, as will the demand for engineering personnel (graduates of vocational upper secondary schools, universities for applied sciences, and research universities). The latter need is based on the interest in projects that transfer research into marketable applications and products, as well as the demand for deployment of nano-related process innovations. Additional administrative and economic skills will become increasingly important for key personnel.

As in the business sector, nano-related employment in educational institutions is expected to increase significantly until 2010. Programs with a nano-related research focus, as well as applied nano-related study programs, are currently being planned or developed for establishment during the next few years. Comparison of supply and demand for nano-relevant education and training programs shows mainly regional imbalances.

Distinct changes on the educational level are expected up until 2010 for nano-related job profiles. University graduates will slightly decrease from 70% to 60%, and graduates from universities of applied sciences will double to approximately 20%. Nano education at the (upper) secondary level is expected to reach and remain static at 15% by 2010. For nano-related topics, education and training are dominated mainly by universities, with well-developed centers in Vienna, Styria, Upper Austria, and the Tyrol. Presently, most programs focus on advanced students as well as students preparing master's theses and PhD dissertations, and on postdoctoral programs.
