Large-Area and Printed Sensor Markets: 2009-2016

  • Published: October 2009
  • Region: Global
  • NanoMarkets

The sensor market will take off rapidly in the next decade, driven by the needs for better diagnostics for an aging population, environmental monitoring, national security and military markets and -- in the not too distant future -- small scale robotics. These are diverse applications areas, but one factor that they will have in common will be the need for sensors that are distributed over large-area, flexible substrates. In many cases, these large-area sensors will be created -- in all or part -- with printing technology.

NanoMarkets believes that while some of the most exciting opportunities in this sector lie in the future, there are already ways to tap into this emerging market that can leverage existing technologies, materials, manufacturing approaches and marketing channels into new business revenues. The objective of this report is to identify just where these opportunities are.

Beginning with an analysis of the potential from existing printed sensor products such as sensors with printed electrodes and diagnostic test strips and assays, this new NanoMarkets report provides a roadmap and revenue forecast that will point out where and how the money will be made on READ MORE >
