Home > Press > New NanoMarkets Report Says Markets for Nanocrystalline Silicon Devices Will Reach $2.1 Billion by 2016

Abstract:
NanoMarkets, a leading industry analyst based here, has announced that it is continuing its coverage of markets for nanocrystalline silicon and printed silicon devices with a new report, "Opportunities for Nanosilicon: 2009 to 2016." This report provides an eight-year forecast of nanocrystalline silicon devices and subsystems used for photovoltaics, memories, display backplanes, and RFID devices, as well as other smaller applications. According to the report, revenues from nanocrystalline silicon products will reach around $2.1 billion in 2016.

New NanoMarkets Report Says Markets for Nanocrystalline Silicon Devices Will Reach $2.1 Billion by 2016

GLEN ALLEN, VA | Posted on September 24th, 2009

Further details about the report are available at www.nanomarkets.net. Executive summaries for registered press are available upon request.

Key findings:

Photovoltaics will be the largest segment of the nanosilicon market with revenues from this segment reaching $1.5 billion in 2016. The report notes that although nanosilicon PV technology is in its infancy, it could solve some of the toughest problems currently facing the thin-film/flexible PV business. Nanosilicon PV requires far less complex and expensive encapsulation than CIGS or organic PV, while at the same time promising higher conversion efficiencies than amorphous silicon PV.

The nonvolatile memory industry is seeking options to allow continued scaling of memory arrays beyond what is possible with conventional floating-gate memory technology. One solution is to use silicon nanocrystals as the floating gates making charge retention more robust and reducing the thickness of gate oxide required to prevent leakage. Device-level revenues generated by nanocrystalline silicon floating gate memories are likely to reach well over $300 million by 2016.

Nanosilicon thin-film transistors (TFTs) have many advantages, some of which are similar to those of organic TFTs (OTFTs); they can be created with low-cost materials and deposition methods, for example. However, nanosilicon TFTs can offer much higher performance than OTFTs, as well as a greater tolerance to moisture and air exposure. NanoMarkets believes that nanosilicon TFTs for RFID in particular will quickly become cost competitive with the current conventional silicon solutions for RFID. By 2016, the value of nanosilicon TFT backplanes and RFID tags combined with reach about $315 million.
