Opportunities in Materials for Printable Electronics: 2007 & Beyond

  • Published: February 2007
  • Region: Global
  • NanoMarkets

Until quite recently, printable electronics (PE) firms used a small variety of materials from a small number of producers . . . and they used them in very small quantities. However, in the past year as PE has begun to take off commercially there has been something of an explosion in the number of different materials that are being proposed for inks and a growing amount of interest from some of the largest specialty chemical firms in what PE can do for their bottom line. A few smaller firms are playing in this market too, believing that PE materials may be more suitable for the entrepreneurial business model financed by venture capitalists or strategic investors.

This new report from NanoMarkets examines where the money will be made in printed electronics materials over the next eight years and who will make it. It follows NanoMarkets’ pioneering study released in early 2006 and expands considerably on the analysis contained in that report. In particular, in this report we provide an answer to the core question facing firms supplying materials into PE market: How can suppliers best offer materials that are distinguishable from others in this relatively small marketplace, READ MORE >
