How Nanotechnology Adds Value to Products

March 1, 2005 | State of the Market Report

We built in-depth, quantitative case studies of three consumer products to identify how nanotechnology will impact their value chains. The impact on a high-volume truck is broad but shallow, with suppliers capturing most of the value generated by nanotechnology applications. For a high-end mobile phone, nanotech keeps manufacturers on existing price/performance curves that they can’t otherwise extend. We found the biggest impact on breast cancer treatment, with 1.5 million years of life saved and $4 billion in lower treatment costs for the number of patients diagnosed in one year alone.
