This latest report quantifies the market opportunities for silver inks and pastes in electronics applications over the next eight years. In the report, the author considers how the industry's latest commercial strategies and technical developments, as well as the persistent environment of high silver prices, which has been in effect for over 18 months now, have affected the market for printed silver in electronics.

The report identifies the applications in which printed silver will generate revenue for the industry in the near- and mid-term, and the report examines the key players in the silver inks/pastes markets. The report provides granular, eight-year volume and revenue forecasts for this business by application and by material.

Printed silver, with its superior conductivity, stability, and ease-of-use in printing applications, has long held a critical place in electronics applications, and suppliers of printable silver materials have enjoyed a fortunate history of new applications - home electronics, computers and displays, photovoltaics, etc. - for their materials.

In the report, the following are considered:

  • It reviews the changes in the photovoltaics industry and discuss how changes in the business environment are damaging the growth of printed silver in this sector.
  • It looks for rising applications - in OLEDs, in other new kinds of displays, and in sensors for pervasive electronics - that may be able to make up for losses elsewhere.
  • Finally, it considers whether the nanosilver revolution will ever happen, or if it is time to give up on nanosilver-based electronics.

Applications for printed silver covered by this report include: thick-film electronics (printed circuit boards, membrane switches, keyboards, resistive heaters, discrete electronic components, and other printed circuitry applications), displays (plasma and other displays), OLEDs (both lighting and displays), PV, sensors, and RFIDs.
