Home > Press > New NanoMarkets Report States That Market for Conductive Silver Inks to Expand Rapidly in the Next Eight Years

Abstract:
The market for silver conductive inks will almost triple over the next eight years to reach $2.4 billion by 2015 says a new report from NanoMarkets, an industry analyst firm. The report is a follow up to a widely regarded and first of its kind analysis of the conductive silver inks business released by NanoMarkets in 2007. Additional details about the 2008 report can be found at www.nanomarkets.net. Members of the press may request an executive summary.

New NanoMarkets Report States That Market for Conductive Silver Inks to Expand Rapidly in the Next Eight Years

GLEN ALLEN, VA | Posted on April 14th, 2008

Key findings from the report:
-- While demand for silver inks from traditional applications such
as membrane switches and PCBs will remain stable, a new group of
applications is emerging that will bring new business revenues to
silver ink makers. The biggest opportunity will be found in the RFID
space where revenues from silver inks for RFID antennas alone will
exceed $880 million by 2015. Based on the current excitement
surrounding alternative energy, NanoMarkets expects the use of silver
inks for solar panel contacts to grow to almost $250 million by 2015.

-- As applications for printable electronics begin to reach full-scale
production, flexo and gravure printing will become increasingly popular
and require special inks tailored to the needs of these kinds of
printing machine. The market for silver flexo and gravure inks is no
more than a niche now. By 2015 it will have reached more than $530
million.

-- Nanosilver inks will reach almost 21 percent of total ink sales by 2015
driven by their high conductivity and ability to be cured at low
temperatures. The latter will be especially important given the growing
role of thermally sensitive flexible substrates.


About the Report:


NanoMarkets' report, Silver Inks and Pastes for Printable Electronics: 2008-2015 quantifies the opportunities for silver inks in both traditional applications and in RFID, photovoltaics, displays, sensors and lighting. The report covers the future of both conventional inks and pastes and the new nanosilver inks. Printing types covered include screen, inkjet, flexo and gravure. Detailed volume and value forecasts are provided for each application, including a breakout by ink, printing technology and type. It includes profiles of influential suppliers of silver inks including Cabot, Cima Nanotech, Creative Materials, DuPont, Five Star, Harima Chemical, InkTec, Mitsubishi, NanoDynamics, NanoGram, Henkel Electronics/National Starch, NanoMas, NovaCentrix, Parelec and Sun Chemical.
