Introduction

Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has declared the release of its latest market report covering the opportunities in the silver inks/pastes market. The report titled, “Silver Inks and Pastes Markets - 2012” will provide an updated survey of the market conditions today and a forecast of the next eight years. NanoMarkets has been reporting on this sector now for more than five years and this is the latest in its ongoing series of industry analysis on silver conductors of various kinds.

Report Overview

The report follows recent NanoMarkets reports on Silver Powders and Flakes, Silver-Based Transparent Conductors, Nanosilver and Silver in Photovoltaics. NanoMarkets  released the report in December.

In the report, it has been considered how the continually high silver prices are impacting the markets for these materials. This may indicate an opportunity for silver alternatives. The specific opportunities that continuously evolve from the conventional thick film industry and also whether the dramatic changes taking place in the solar panel and display industry will minimize the silver demand have been studied. It has also been considered if minimizing subsidies for crystalline silicon solar panels, which is a large consumer of silver pastes ultimately affects the silver pastes business and similarly will the continuous decline of the plasma display industry have a similar effect. The report also studies the future of nanosilver inks, a product that has been full of unfulfilled promise for a number of years now. The study also examines whether it is time to give up on the commercialization of these materials.

Evolving opportunities are also examined in the report. It has been studied whether the new OLED lighting and television panel will prove to be a good prospect for the use of printed silver bus lines and interconnects. Additionally, in the new solar panel policy environment, completely new types of photovoltaics are likely to emerge quite quickly. It has also been analysed if the use of silver in the electrodes will be done just like older types of PV. It has also been examined whether the sensors that are used as part of the “Internet of Things,” will make significant use of printed silver.

Conclusion

This report studies the emerging opportunities in silver inks/pastes in the light of all these trends and provides a comprehensive guide for determining the growth opportunities and navigating the market challenges. As a part of this analysis, the strategies of the key players in the silver inks/pastes markets have been studied, and identify what Nanomarkets believes to be the trends indicating likely success (or not) at different firms. Finally, as always Nanomarkets includes eight-year market forecasts for silver inks/pastes by application and by material.

Companies addressed in the report will include Advanced Nano Products, Cima NanoTech, Creative Materials, DIC Corporation/Sun Chemical, DuPont, Ferro Electronic Materials, Harima Chemical, Henkel Electronics, Heraeus, InkTec and Methode.
