Gold is a precious metal that is used in the electronics industry. With all its compelling benefits like high stability, non-tarnishing properties, a high work function, among others, gold, however, has a significant disadvantage as well – high cost. In fact, the prices of silver inks are already deemed too high, with efforts underway to identify solutions such as copper-based inks in order to prune away costs. Despite this, there exist several market opportunities where the benefits of using gold could potentially overweigh the higher cost.

Currently, there are several organizations using nano-particle gold inks, with their scope of work mainly encompassing R&D activities. Suppliers of gold ink today that are selling ink on a commercial scale, though in small quantities, include NanoMas Technologies Inc, Johnson Matthey and Harima.
