ReportsnReports - Functional Inkjet Inks for Digital Fabrication Applications -2011

  1. 1. Functional Inkjet Inks for Digital Fabrication Applications adds MarketsandMarkets Market Research Report “Functional InkjetInks for Digital Fabrication Applications -2011’’ to its store.This new report is designed to analyze and quantify the market opportunities for materialsfirms, ink makers and the specialty chemical industry that are emerging form the use ofinkjet technology for manufacturing products and prototypes.NanoMarkets notes that digital fabrication as a whole has been received considerableattention over the past year or so and for a number of reasons. It is an additive technologyit is less wasteful of materials and because it can rapidly produce highly customizedproducts it is already widely used as a way to reduce costs and speed up prototyping in theaerospace, automobile, semiconductor, and other industries. The unique ability of digitalfabrication to customize has also made it a staple technology in niches where this is critical;decorative lampshades are an example. And at the policy level, digital fabrication hasvariously been seen as a way to help industrialize lesser developed countries and toreindustrialize nations that have adopted service economies.The many advantages of digital manufacturing has lead both The Economist and Wired topredict that a digital manufacturing revolution is just around the corner and, should thisturn out to be case, there is little doubt that industrial inkjet technology will be key to thisrevolution’s success. “Jetted fabrication” offers many unique advantages. It can supportdeposition and patterning of many different kinds of materials, for example. It can alsocreate very small features, enabling quite sophisticated end products to be fabricated. Inaddition, jetting is a well understood and relatively low cost printing technology, which willlower the barriers to entry to digital fabrication markets.As the office and home printer markets for inkjet become fully saturated, many in the inkjetbusiness have seen new opportunities in digital fabrication. This is already a majorpreoccupation for makers of equipment and print heads and service bureau. However, theopportunities for ink makers and specialty chemical companies that are inherent in jettedmanufacturing may not be as apparent.With this in mind, NanoMarkets is publishing this report, which is designed to guide firms towhere the ink-related new business potential is to be found. It examines the key ink-typesthat will make money over the coming decade for functional printing as well as a time tablefor the emerging markets for these materials. As with all NanoMarkets reports, this reportcontains a granular eight-year forecast of inks for jetted fabrication as well as an analysis ofthe firms active in this space.
