Explore How Substrates Such as Glass or Plastic Can be Improved for Printable Electronics

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on March 10th, 2007

With printed electronics now promising large markets in a few years, we believe that their will be growing opportunities for selling new materials products into this sector. These opportunities will include novel organic and metallic inks, a variety of substrate materials and interesting new solvents, mask making materials, etc. This new direction has potential for firms in the specialty chemical, materials, electronics, semiconductors and printing industries and should also be of interest to investors seeking to make money from an important direction for new materials development.

This report is designed to quantify the opportunities, providing detailed forecasts of materials needed for printed electronics, broken out by chemistry, application and type of printing technology. It will also review the latest R&D and the marketing strategies of firms already active in this sector.

In the research carried out for this report and its companion report on printable electronics applications, it became very obvious that there were many uncertainties about the future of the printable electronics industry and the materials that it would use. The main purpose of this report is therefore to provide clarity about such matters. This report is designed to quantify the opportunities that the emerging printable electronics sector presents for the materials, both currently available and in development. This includes the goal of providing detailed forecasts of such materials, broken out by application, chemistry and type of printing technology. The report also reviews and appraises the latest R&D and the marketing strategies for firms producing inks, substrates and other materials used in the printable electronics business.

Specific questions that this report answers are the following:

-- We examine the current state of play with polymer inks and assess whether oligomers and even small molecules may have a future role in printable electronics.

-- We discuss how metallic inks other than silver inks may find a useful role in printable electronics and how nanotechnology is improving the prospects for metallic inks of all kinds. In addition, we examine whether traditional semiconducting materials, including silicon, have a future in printing inks.

-- Much of the printed electronics, so far carried out has been on glass or plastics. In this report we discuss how such substrates can be improved for printable electronics applications and the prospects for extending printable electronics to paper, card, metal and other prospective substrates.

-- We examine how robust user friendly inks and substrates are likely to emerge to meet the needs of the traditional printing industry.

-- We believe that the printable electronics industry is now at a sufficiently evolved state to identify the key players that are shaping the industry and how they are doing this.

-- This report traces how new developments at the materials level will create opportunities higher up the value chain.

-- This report determines just where the new business revenues are going to come from by providing detailed market projections, broken out by application, type of material and type of printing technology.
