Molecular electronics, also called moletronics, is the branch of nanotechnology where the molecular building blocks are used for the fabrication of electronic components. It is an interdisciplinary area that spans physics, chemistry, and materials science. The smaller size of the electronic components decreases power consumption while increasing the sensitivity (and sometimes performance) of the device. These have wide range of applications in the work areas of chemistry, physics, electronics and nano electronics, technology, artificial intelligence and medical equipment. For instance, resistors and transistors that are used in producing electricity, capacitors in space crafts, automation circuits of robots, strategic plant temperature handlers and CT scan for displaying the infected areas of body.
The global Molecular electronics market was USD XX.XX in 2016 and will reach USD XX.X by 2022 at a CAGR of XX.XX% over the forecasted period.
Drivers vs. Constraints
The growing need for having single molecule components / devices, its advantages, are the major drivers of the market. However, controlled fabrication to within specified tolerances and its experimental verification is a challenge in the market.
Industry Structure and Updates
Conventional Silicon-based components will be replaced by individual molecules and the future electronic circuits might be integrated on a space smaller by a factor of 100. In the near future molecular electronics would be flourishing on broader scale and commonly used instruments that are used in many work areas would be having molecular electronic circuits and fabrications embedded in them.
