Nanotechnology (NT) is considered to constitute the basis of next technological revolution. It is a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary subject covering physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering. The present chapter discusses various applications of nanotechnology with respect to the relation with industries and to develop the human resources in nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is progressing fast in the fields of electronics, textiles, packaging, auto and aerospace industries, sports, optoelectronics, environmental monitoring, food science, forensics, security, cosmetics, agriculture, medicines, etc. NT is impacting our daily life with fast pace, and thus can be considered as a driving force for industrial development. The science has long been working at this scale and below. Bionanotechnology or nanobiotechnology is an area in nanoscience, which is fast picking up for its application in human health and agriculture.
