Transparent conductive coatings and films have attracted both end user interest and investment in the past two years and none more so than nanosilver-based solutions. There are as many as 15 firms now that have nanosilver-base transparent conducting materials on the market or who plan to get into this business in the not-too-distant future. While there are a variety of other new approaches to transparent conductive materials, no other material has attracted as much attention as nanosilver.

ReportsnReports – Markets for Silver-Based Transparent Conductors – 2011

  1. 1. Markets for Silver-Based Transparent Conductors – 2011ReportsnReports.com adds NanoMarkets LC Market Research Report “Markets for Silver-Based Transparent Conductors – 2011’’ to its store.Transparent conductive coatings and films have attracted both end user interest andinvestment in the past two years and none more so than nanosilver-based solutions. Thereare as many as 15 firms now that have nanosilver-base transparent conducting materials onthe market or who plan to get into this business in the not-too-distant future. While thereare a variety of other new approaches to transparent conductive materials, no othermaterial has attracted as much attention as nanosilver.With the extremely high conductivity possible using nanosilver, this interest is hardlysurprising. And the use of nanosilver transparent conductors has also been boosted by themany uncertainties that now surround the established ITO market as well as the emergenceof market sectors – notably touch display sensors – to which nanosilver transparentconductors seem especially well suited. Cambrios, the “granddaddy” of the nanosilvertransparent conductor industry, is already shipping to commercial customers and appears tobe headed towards profitability.Given all of the above, nanosilver-based transparent conductors seem well on their way tobeing an important success story for the nanomaterials industry. However, NanoMarketsbelieves that to understand where the real opportunities are in the nanosilver-basedtransparent conductor space a deeper analysis is required. For example, although not oftenmentioned, there are differing approaches using nanosilver as a transparent conductor.Some firms use inks based on silver nanostructures, some print grids that use nanosilverbut are similar in style to the thick-film silver grids used for solar panels, some combinenanosilver with other transparent conductors including the classic ITO.This diversity raises the question of what kind of nanosilver solutions are best suited tocurrent and future marketplace conditions and beyond that where nanosilver as a whole fitsinto the requirements for transparent conductors in both the display and solar panelindustry. Should suppliers of transparent conductors offer a range of transparentconductors – of which only some will be silver-based – to take advantage of customerneeds? And will nanosilver and nanotube transparent conductor solutions compete witheach other or complement each other in some way?This report answers all these questions and more. It also discusses which sectors of thedisplay and solar panel industry are likely to be most open to nanosilver transparentconductors. In addition, this report appraises the strategies of all the major firms offeringor planning to offer nanosilver-based transparent conductor solutions, providing a clear ideaof who the winners and losers in this space will be. Finally, as with all NanoMarkets reports,this report provides a granular eight-year forecast, with breakouts by type of applicationand type of nanosilver solution used.
  2. 2. The report is part of NanoMarkets ongoing coverage of the transparent conductormarket that covers ITO, alternative TCOs, conductive polymers and transparent conductivenanomaterials.
