Nanosilver Markets - 2011
Nanosilver - whether in powder, ink or nanostructure form – promises all that industrial silver offers but at a higher performance level. Thus nanosilver inks are more conductive and cure at lower temperatures than equivalent inks that use conventional silver. Nanosilver powders are highly potent antibacterial agents and solutions made with silver nanostructures seem to be one of the best available alternatives to ITO, widely used as a transparent conductive coating in the display industry.

The suitability of nanosilver for such a broad range of applications is encouraging and has drawn a large number of firms into the nanosilver business. These include everything from major multinationals who believe there is enough money in nanosilver to impact thebottom line to VC-backed start-ups offering the latest silver nanostructures. In the middle there are a growing number of mid-cap firms offering fairly generic nanosilver powders of various kinds.

Nonetheless, the nanosilver market faces important challenges. Although the amounts of nanosilver needed to perform a given task can often be less than for an equivalent standard silver preparation, nanosilver products are currently very expensive and may be hard for potential customers to cost justify. In addition, there are concerns that widespread use of the material’s otherwise useful antimicrobial properties will cause unexpected negative health and environmental effects. As a result, there are now growing regulatory barriers to the use of nanosilver that could cool sales significantly in the coming years.

With all this in mind, this new report from NanoMarkets analyzes the opportunities presented by nanosilver over the next eight years. The report covers nanomaterials, including nanopowders and other silver nanostructures; nanosilver-based inks, pastes and adhesives, and nanocomposite materials. This report focuses on all the leading applications for nanosilver and also provides coverage on the product development and marketing strategies of the leading players. As with all NanoMarkets reports, this publication provides eight-year forecasts for these materials broken out in both volume and value terms.

NanoMarkets has been reporting on industrial uses of silver and silver-based products for over five years, and this is our latest report in this space. Other areas covered in reports by NanoMarkets include “Silver Inks and Pastes,” “Silver in Photovoltaics Markets” and Silver Powders and Flakes.
