Global Fluorine Doped Tin Oxide Market - Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023

This report provides a quantitative analysis of the current trends, estimations, and dynamics from 2016 to 2023 to assist in identifying the prevailing market opportunities.


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/29/2017 -- Fluorine doped tin oxides are electrically conductive semiconductor materials with relatively low light absorption characteristics. They are prepared using thin film technologies. Fluorine doped tin oxides are extremely flexible intermediate states with both of the aforementioned characteristics. Their conducting properties can be tuned by insulating them from semiconducting to conducting as well as by adjusting their transparency.

Access to the full summary:

Some of the major applications of fluorine doped tin oxides include display devices, thin-film solar cells, polymer-inorganic composite solar cells, optoelectronic devices, frost-resistant surfaces, and gas sensors. Fluorine doped tin oxide are thin films, which fit in a distinct class of metal oxide thin films that is the transparent conducing oxide thin films, which are a special part of nanostructured thin film solar cells. Fluorine doped tin oxide offers fabrication of low cost solar cells. As it allows easy transmission of solar radiations directly with no reduction, these cells have enhanced sensitivity in the high-photon-energy portion of the solar spectrum and make thin film solar cells suitable for large scale application with high performance efficiency

The global fluorine doped tin oxide market has witnessed tremendous growth opportunities in the past few years. Fluorine doped tin oxides provide an enhanced sputtering rate as well as employ a closed field unbalanced magnetron configuration. These properties of fluorine doped tin oxide are anticipated to bring impetus in the overall demand. Moreover, low cost as well as diversity in its temperature sensitivity range drives the growth of the global fluorine doped tin oxide market.

However, factors such as volatility in raw material prices along with introduction of cheaper substitutes hamper the market growth. Although investments in R&D activities to develop more efficient materials is anticipated to bring potential opportunities in the global fluorine doped tin oxide market.
