Increasing demand for biomedical electronics, electronic devices and nano-optics and the development of new technologies such as 3DNanopatterning fuel the Nanopatterning Market. This technology is used for imprinting patterns on silicon chips or substrate. This helps in reducing the usage of radiation based nanolithography techniques. Nanopatterning provides nanoimprints at lower cost along with the high resolution.
Nanopatterning is an emerging technology which is growing considerably along with the growth of Nanoimprint Lithography, a process to fabricate patterns of nanometer scales. Due to the high demand for surface customization at micro and nano scale, this technology is being adopted.
The medical sector is adopting this technology due to its advantages in the medical and biological field.
Nanopatterning Market: Drivers and Challenges
The major factor driving Nanopatterning technology is the 3D Nanopatterning.
This technology uses a nanoscale tip which is used in atomic microscopy for the development of 2D and 3D patterns at 15 nanometers. The growing demand for 3D Nanopatterning is helping this technology to grow for biological applications.
Another factor driving this market is cost advantages that user gets while producing photonics with the help of Nanopatterning. Furthermore, introduction of Nanograft technology for treating coronary disease is creating new opportunities for this technology.
The development of 3D structure is still a challenge faced by the manufacturers as it requires good management of horizontal and vertical coordinates of the sample. This is a multi-step process that requires necessary alignment between the layers.
Due to this, it is still a challenge to use Nanopatterning for fabrication of simple 3D structures. Moreover, this technology is highly expensive that restricts its usage among large level manufacturers as they have capital to invest.
