This article presents the authors’ views about the current trends in the development of micro- and nano-manufacturing. Especially, it is focused on broadening the range of materials and processing technologies that should be considered in designing and implementing manufacturing platforms underpinning the development and the serial production of micro- and nanotechnologies (MNT) enabled products. This article discusses the existing trends in research and development of MNT and their applications, together with the challenges and opportunities that they represent for research community and industry in designing and implementing new manufacturing platforms for existing and emerging products.
