Nanotechnology in Food and Food Processing
--- Tomorrow we will design food by shaping molecules and atoms
Applications, Key Technologies, Markets and Developments of Nanotechnology in Food Production, Processing, Preservation, Safety and Packaging
1. Initial Position
Keeping leadership in food and food processing industry, you have to work with nanotechnology and nano-bio-info in the future. The markets are changing already.
Tomorrow we will design food by shaping molecules and atoms. Nanoscale biotech and nano-bio-info will have big impacts on the food and food-processing industries. The future belongs to new products, new processes with the goal to customize and personalize the products. Improving the safety and quality of food will be the first step. More than 180 applications are in different developing stages and a few of them are on the market already. The nanofood market is expected to surge from 2.6 bn. US dollars today to 7.0 bn. US dollars in 2006 and to 20.4 bn. US dollars in 2010. More than 200 Companies around the world are today active in research and development. USA is the leader followed by Japan and China. By 2010 Asian with more than 50 percent of the worldpopulation will be the biggest market for Nanofood with the leading of China.
On the one side, further breakthroughs in crop DNA decoding and analysing enable the industries to predict, control and improve the agricultural production. On the other side, with technology of manipulating the molecules and the atoms of food, the future food industry has a powerful method to design food with much more capability and precision, lower costs and sustainability.
Meanwhile, the combination of DNA and nanotechnology research generates the new nutrition delivery system, which brings the active agents more precisely and efficiently to the wanted parts of the human bodies and cells. Functional food will benefit firstly from the new technologies, followed by standard food, nutraceuticals and others.
Some companies are already aware of the impact of nanotechnology in food industry. Research facilities are established, potential applications are under study, whereas only a handful of nano food products are market available now. Nevertheless, the tremendous potential will attract more and more competitors into this still unploughed field. The number of the companies involved in this field will increase from 69 in 2002 to 2004 and to several thousands by 2010.
Who is afraid of Nanotechnology in Food ?
Molecular technologies are disruptive technologies and change the conventional production faster than most scientists expect .. It can make the products cheaper, the production more efficient , more safe and more sustainable using less water and chemicals. Producing less waste and using less energy. The impact for the food industry will be a change of 40 to 60 percent by 2015. The change is dramatic, the potentials are immense and the risks too. The main source of increasing the speed for these technologies within the next years are climate change, cost efficiency and population growth. But also new applications using food as drugs and nutrition.
2. Experiences and Development of HKC
In 1989, 1990, 1995 and the following years HKC published studies regarding microsystem technology and micro electronics.
Since 1980, life science, pharma, food, bioinformatic, information, environmental technology and environmental protection, energy and renewable energy, biotechnology and brain science, neural technologies, medicine technology and water, drinking water and waste water are central fields of our work and competence. In February 2001, hkc22.com and btt.com (www.btt.com) published the first study worldwide about convergence of nanotechnololgy-biotechnology-information-neural technology. (Converging nano-bio-info-neural-technologies 2015). The study is more comprehensive than the one restricted to cogno (cognitive science) published by US institutes in the summer of 2002. The studies come to comparable results:
The converging nano-bio-neural (cogno) and information will be the overall revolution in the 21st century. It will open new windows for human beings, new developments and innovations change the society and human beings will live with smaller footprints and realize sustainable developments. Neural technologies and the decoding of the brain-function, DNA-based technologies and processes will determine the Molecular Future.
The DNA is the information and has the instructions for every cell. The cell is the basic and prototype for nanotechnology. The RNA's are the components for the interactions. This opens a new understanding of human being and functions, and the 'Molecular Nature'. A new window is opened.
From that general study, we choose some most promising segments and elaborate studies such as "Instruments and Tools for Nanotechnology 2003-2006-2010-2015", "Nanotechnology in Life Science Industries 2003-2006-2010-2015" and now "Nanotechnology in Food and Food Processing Industry 2003-2006-2010-2015". They focus on the impacts and applications of nanotechnology in the different fields, scientifically examine, collect and evaluate all companies, markets, branches, applications, developments, state of science and expected developments worldwide, and provide prognoses for the next 15 years.
This study is finished. It will be updated annually and where it is necessary for research will be a constant update.
3. Structure of the Study/Time Schedule
The total study is divided into several segments which can be obtained separately.
All parts or segments include: Summary, state of science and developments 2002, 2003, 2006, 2010, 2015 and prospects, companies, competition, branches, applications and products according to countries, regions, worldwide, in turnover, volume and potential.
Markets and branches, applications and countries can also be obtained separately.
4. Aims and Benefits of the Study
Aim of the study is the analysis of the global markets and developments, research and development, the companies, organizations, branches and products. The years 2006 is the basis, as well as the further development in 2008, 2010 and 2015, and prospects for the following years.
The study shows turnover, volume, potentials, product fields and products, applications, competition, companies, countries, regions worldwide, profit potentials, value chains, research expenditures, investments, factors of success, strategies, and opportunities & risks. A separate evaluation and representation is made for the stocks, including an evaluation of companies and prognosis for the stock markets in the US, Japan, China, Germany and Europe.
