This study aims to analyse the research output performance on the Nanotechnology subject. A total of 11825 research articles published in Web of Science database were analyzed to find the performance of Nanotechnology related scientists from all over the world in terms of growth during the period 2013-2017 (last five years). Annual growth rate, global publication share, and ranking among ten countries of the world, a prolific author in the field, high productive Institutions, Journals, etc. are studied in this article. This study reveals that the maximum numbers of funding agencies are from China. The average number of publications per year is 2365; more number of articles are published during 2016. In the country-wise contribution of documents, the USA contributed the highest 27.39% of the total publication. Among journals, ACS Nano journal ranked first with 2% of articles and among the funding agencies, the National Natural Science Foundation of China stands first with 8.1% funding.
