Market Dynamics of the Global Nanowires Market:
Development of production processes for rapid and mass production
Increasing applications of nanowires in LEDS, nano-medicines and consumer goods
Rise in investments in research activities in this sector
Insufficient control over properties of individual blocks while manufacturing nanowires
Lack of reliable methods for assembling and building blocks into circuits
The metal nanowires can be used in electrical connection to nano-circuits, high density perpendicular data storage devices, nano-sensors and nano-electrodes. Over the years silver nanowires would replace indium tin oxide (ITO), which is used as transparent conductive coating for capacitance touch screens. Moreover, with growing research advances nanowires could replace LEDs as well.
Semi-conductor nanowires can be used to increase the efficiency of solar cells. Solar Voltaics, a startup gathered an investment of USD 9.4 million, based on its claim that its new nanowire technology can be used to generate more efficient solar cells. Semiconductor nanowires can be applied in solar cells, battery electrodes, sensors and in biology. Semiconductor quantum nanowires can be used in optoelectronic applications.
