Food Nanostructure ("nanotech") is the manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale. The earliest, widespread description of nanotechnology referred to the particular technological goal of precisely manipulating atoms and molecules for fabrication of macro scale products, also now referred to as molecular nanotechnology.
A more generalized description of nanotechnology was subsequently established by the National Nanotechnology Initiative, which defines nanotechnology as the manipulation of matter with at least one dimension sized from 1 to 100 nanometers. This definition reflects the fact that quantum mechanical effects are important at this quantum-realm scale, and so the definition shifted from a particular technological goal to a research category inclusive of all types of research and technologies that deal with the special properties of matter that occur below the given size threshold.
OMICS International organizes 1000+ Global events every year across the Globe. OMICS International Agri, Food and Aqua Conferences is a hub which covers the innards of Agriculture, Food and aquaculture sciences which serves as a major platform for the transfer of scientific knowledge through which are arranged parallel to the scientific-sessions.
Scope and Importance :
In the area of food production and processing, nanotechnology has some current uses and a wide range of potential uses including the development of novel functional ingredients, nutrient delivery systems, safety testing, innovative and improved packaging, and traceability and authenticity verification. The application of nanotechnology in the Agri-food sector is still a relatively new concept. This is mainly due to issues relating to product labeling, a lack of unifying regulations and guidelines on nanotechnology governance, and uncertainties regarding side effects to consumer health and the environment. As with all new technologies, a concise determination of the potential risks will need to be undertaken to ensure that public and environmental concerns are addressed and any regulatory, ethical and policy challenges are met.
Statistical Analysis :
The global market for nanotechnology applications will be addressed. Nanotechnology applications are defined comprehensively as the creation and utilization of materials, devices, and systems through the manipulation of matter at scales of less than 100 nanometers. The study covers nanomaterials (nanoparticles, nanotubes, nanostructure materials, and nanocomposites), nanotools (nanolithography tools and scanning probe microscopes), and nanodevices (nanosensors and nanoelectronics). • Total worldwide sales revenues for nanotechnology were $11,671.3 million in 2009, and are expected to increase to more than $26000 Million in 2015, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.1%. • The largest nanotechnology segments in 2009 were Nanomaterials. All Nanomaterials will increase from $9,027.2 million in 2009 to nearly $19,621.7 million in 2015, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.7%. • Sales of Nanotools will experience high growth. This market segment was worth $2,613.1 million in 2009 and will increase at a 3.3% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach a value of $6,812.5 million in 2015. • Sales of Nanodevices will experience moderate growth. This market segment was worth $31 million in 2009 and will increase at a 45.9% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach a value of $233.7 million in 2015.
