3.2.3 Methodology for market quantitative assessment
For an analysis of the present status, future visions and economic perspectives of nanotechnology, expert interviews either personally or via a fill-in questionnaire were carried out. Due to the limited number of interviews, the results may not be representative. The answers to the future visions and products may be regarded as a good indicator of future developments from the present situation. The results were cross-checked at several conferences. Furthermore, the interviews and questionnaires included some open questions concerning the most important products and main innovation barriers. The answers to these questions show a broader scatter that clearly reflects the difficulty in predicting future developments.
