UK Employment in Nanotechnologies

In an article about the BSI standards conference we noticed an intriguing factoid.

“Speaking at the event, science and innovation minister Lord Sainsbury said that the UK’s current annual turnover for all micro and nanotechnologies is £11bn, and that it supports some 20,000 jobs.”

It makes us wonder what the turnover for UK nanotechnologies alone is, and whether the government actually knows. Given the smokescreen, rather than a figure of x growing at a rate of y%, we assume not.
