An out of date page?? That's all?

Run a google search on the US government reports on nanotech, the National Science Foundation, etc and you'll see where that page is serious indicator of development is the funding for R&D, that number is well above the revenue figure and was growing at 25% till 2008 before the WW recession. It is still over 18%. Total research dollars since 2000" $65 billion. Over $15 billion a year.

Estimates of corportate research:

The total VALUE of products incorporating nanotech is actually much higher than the revenue total. Here are some snippets:

National Science Foundation

A market assessement of nanotech sector by BCC research, a market forecasting company:

While the definitions and metrics of the growing industry are debated, they conservatively set the value of the market at $15.7 billion in 2010, though other sources value it over $1 trillion already.

Update 2012:

More market research: Nanophotonics market worth $37.6 billion by 2014.
