NanoMarkets, a leading industry analyst firm based here that covers the markets for thin film, organic and printable electronics, today announced the release of the first of four report modules from the firm's Printed Electronics Materials Database. The report issued this week provides NanoMarkets near-term outlook for the printed electronics materials business and concludes that printed electronics is evolving rapidly towards real commercial products and will therefore need
materials that perform well and are available in commercial quantities over the next year or so. Additional information about the database including a prospectus is available at www.nanomarkets.net.
About the Report:
This new report identifies the business opportunities in five key segments
of the printed electronics materials business: conductive metallic inks,
printed organic materials, printed silicon, inks that use nanomaterials and
substrate materials. The report analyses the implications for printed
electronics of important developments such as the high price of silver, the
latest R&D in organic materials and nanomaterials, and the imminent
commercialization of both printed silicon and printed electronics on paper.
It also takes a look at what some of the most innovative materials firms are
doing to further the evolution of printed electronics.
In this report, NanoMarkets has identified three key trends that are
shaping the emerging printed electronics market:
-- A growing number of materials are being turned into inks and thus
bringing the advantages of printing to more segments of the electronics
industry. The report discusses the new role played by inks made from silicon,
carbon nanotubes and innovative hybrid materials such as silver-plated copper,
or dye sensitive photovoltaic materials.
-- The printed electronics industry is learning from the established
semiconductor industry. Silicon inks are emerging as a viable way to create
thin-film transistors, while transfer printing opens up new roads to fabricate
sophisticated silicon devices on flexible substrates. Printed silicon is a
challenge to the organic electronics paradigm, but also an inspiration as
technology developers borrow concepts such as CMOS and materials sets from the
silicon world and transfer them to organic electronics.
-- Nanomaterials are establishing themselves as a way forward for printed
electronics in a number of ways. Inks using metallic nanoparticles promise
higher conductivities and lower curing temperatures, nanosilicon inks may
prove the best route to printed silicon, and carbon nanotube inks open up
interesting new possibilities for ITO replacements, lighting and even emissive
About the Database:
The NanoMarkets Printed Electronics Materials Database is the industry's
most comprehensive resource for the emerging printed electronics materials
market. The database provides users with detailed information and analysis of
over 180 firms active in the printable electronics materials business. In
addition to the supplier index the database also includes both qualitative and
quantitative market forecasts of the inks, substrates and barrier materials
used in printing displays, radio frequency identification (RFID), transistors,
backplanes, photovoltaics, memory, sensors and batteries, analysis of the
trends and developments driving the printable electronics business and how
these trends and developments are impacting the opportunities for specialty
chemicals, materials, inks and substrates manufacturers.
NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging market opportunities in
electronics created by developments in advanced materials. The firm has
published numerous reports related to organic, thin film and printable
electronics materials and applications.
