Silver Nanomaterial-Based TC Marketplace Discussed in New NanoMarkets Research Report Available at MarketPublishers.com21 Feb 2014 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – With the developments in the touch-screen industry, there have sprung alternative materials that may dent indium tin oxide’s (ITO) reign as a transparent conductor (TC). Carbon nanotubes, the hype around which occurred some years ago, have recently given way to silver-based nanomaterials, and these are expected to grow market share in the upcoming years. The market for transparent conductors made from silver nanowires and silver nanoparticles is forecast to generate revenue of over USD 225 million by end-2019.
Firms offering silver nanomaterial-based TCs will have to shift their focus from touch panels, as displays of larger size do not make use of touch on a broad scale, and touch control will most likely be replaced by gestural control in the long run. If the suppliers of silver nanomaterial-based TCs seek to generate great revenue, they will have to channel passion to the huge LCD market. Over the next 6 years, more than 50% of the revenues generated by silver nanomaterial TC producers are forecast to stem from LCDs. Companies that play active part in the market include Cambrios, 3M, Carestream, ClearJet, E Ink, LG, Fujimori Kogyo, Cima NanoTech, Heliatek, Novaled, SeaShell Technology, Samsung, Sumitomo, and Tata Steel, amongst others.
New research report “Markets for Silver Nanomaterials as Transparent Conductors” prepared by NanoMarkets provides an all-round assessment of the actual state of the market for TCs using silver nanowires and other silver nanomaterials.
The report takes a shrewd look at the strategies and capabilities of the top suppliers of silver nanomaterial-based TCs, as well as examines commercially attractive developments at other companies. The study offers a exhaustive forecast (to 2018) of the silver nanomaterial market as a part of the bigger TC market space, besides forecasting the market in the major applications (touch screens, LCD and OLED displays, PV panels and OLED lighting) where silver nanowires have great potential for further growth. Additionally, the latest developments in this significant sector of the TC marketplace are highlighted in the report, too.
