Glen Allen, VA (PRWEB) May 29, 2014
Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets today announced a new upcoming report to the firm’s schedule titled, “Silver Inks and Pastes Markets: 2014-2021” that will be released in June 2014. The report continues the firm’s coverage of the silver inks and pastes market dating back to 2005. NanoMarkets is offering the report on a pre-publication basis through mid-June. Additional details of the report are available at: http://nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/silver-inks-and-pastes-markets-2014-2021
Customers who pre-order the 2014 report will receive a copy of the previous 2013 report at no additional charge.
About the Report:
This is the latest in NanoMarkets’ ongoing series of industry analysis reports on silver inks and pastes. In this report we analyze how the changes within the applications for silver inks and pastes have impacted the business and what this means over the coming years.
On the positive side, the solar panel industry is reviving and is much more oriented toward crystalline silicon (c-Si) panels than before the great solar crash. This is good news for the silver pastes business, because c-Si panels are major consumes of silver. Silver inks and pastes suppliers also have some reason to be hopeful about the likelihood of large OLED lighting and displays panels finally being commercialized, since silver undoubtedly has a role to play in OLED electrodes.
The negatives for the silver inks and pastes business include the fact that plasma televisions and membrane switches, both of which have consumed a considerable amount of silver pastes are phasing out and printed electronics is gradually being abandoned as a viable application by many suppliers.
This report also examines the commercial implications for silver inks and paste markets. In this year’s report, we place a special emphasis on the replacement of silver by copper in critical applications such as solar panels. We also re-examine the future of silver inks and pastes in the light of the rising Internet-of-Things meme and address whether or not there will there be demand for printed silver used within all those sensors and smart objects. Finally, we take one more look to see if nanosilver inks will ever make it out of the “research material” category.
In this evolving market environment, this report identifies which market opportunities for silver inks and pastes are likely to be the most important over the next decade. And as with other NanoMarkets reports, we also include detailed eight-year forecasts in both volume and value terms, with breakouts by application, type of material and type of printing process used. The report also contains an assessment of the product/market strategies of leading silver inks and pastes firms – both the traditional and the new suppliers that appearing from China and India.
