NEW YORK Feb. 9, 2011
NanoMarkets has been tracking the silver inks and pastes market for five years and is considered the premier supplier of business information to this sector of the printed electronics business. This report provides an entirely new look at the state of the silver inks and pastes industry in which we consider the impact of the ongoing worldwide economic problems and changing silver prices, along with the latest trends in the various applications sectors into which silver inks and pastes are sold. We have also expanded coverage from last year in a number of ways including more about both silver ink applications and the companies that produce them.
With all this in mind we take an entirely fresh look in this report at what the suppliers of silver inks are doing both in terms of how they are adapting their product ranges to the current market environment and the market strategies that they plan to employ in the future. One particular area of focus for us here is the future of nanosilver and other high-value inks. These products have now been available for several years and their theoretical advantages are well understood. Yet the market for such products has never seemed to take off in the way that some advocates of these inks hoped they might. Is this because of inadequate formulations? Or immature applications? Are nanosilver inks a product with a commercial future?
In this report, we also take a much closer look than ever before at the applications for silver inks and pastes. In particular, we examine the latest developments in the display and lighting space and how they are growing the opportunities for silver ink/paste makers. In addition, we have also added considerably on our analysis of the opportunities in the sensor and thick film applications sectors for silver formulations.
In this year’s report we have provided additional coverage of the silver/ink and paste companies with an entirely new section on the small Asian companies that continue to be players in this space. As usual we have included a granular eight-year market forecast for silver inks and pastes that reflect today’s market environment and price points.
