Markets Survey for Metal Meshes as Transparent Conductors - 2014

ResearchMoz presents this most up-to-date research on Metal Meshes as Transparent Conductors Market - 2014. The report focuses primarily on quantitative market metrics in order to characterize the growth and evolution of the Metal Meshes as Transparent Conductors.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/16/2014 -- Metal meshes - previously not under serious consideration as transparent conductors because of their lack of transparency - have now overcome their limitations and are seen as serious competition for ITO in touch-screen sensors and large display, lighting and solar panels. In some cases, ITO and metal meshes may even be used to together.

Metal meshes on film have been around for many years, but it is only in the past couple of years that new deposition and materials technologies have allowed meshes to serve as a transparent conductor for real world applications. Many of the new generation of metal meshes use silver, but some now use copper, which had previously mostly been ruled out for transparent conductor markets.

Markets for 3D Printing Materials: 2013 - 2022

View Full Report -

SmarTech sees these trends as creating an immediate opportunity in the materials space. Each user group and each application needs its own materials set. While 3D printing used to be primarily about ABS, PLA and some metals, it seems that hardly a day goes by without new materials being added to the 3D printing palette.

Change in the 3D printing materials sector is now occurring at multiple levels. New materials such as novel alloys and even concrete are started to be printed. And it is becoming clear that the roads to success in the 3D printing materials sector will depend on finely tuning materials offerings to the needs of each application. This fine-tuning process will involve not just the type of material itself, but also material quality, and the selection of marketing channels and packaging.

Smart coatings change in response to external stimuli and are finding a fast growing number of applications in several industries including construction, automotive, medical, consumer electronic goods and the military. NanoMarkets believes that these materials present a strong business case because of their unique functionality and their ability to be highly customized. We think smart coatings will do especially well in medical, military and other applications, where quality and performance, rather than price, shape purchasing decisions. Consumer markets where the customer is willing to pay a premium for functionality such as scratch resistance or enhanced energy efficiency will also be important.

Personal 3D Printers: Market Forecast and Market Share Analysis: 2013 - 2022

View Full Report -

Almost 70,000 personal 3D printers will be sold in 2013, with personal 3D printing being hailed by some as the “next big thing” almost as disruptive as the personal computing revolution itself. Big name companies – Microsoft, Staples and UPS – are also making investments. But the other side of the 3D printing story is that it is not yet clear what 3D personal printing is good for and many suppliers of these machines are small companies with limited resources.

With all this in mind this new report provides the first thorough market analysis of the personal 3D printer space. It offers an in-depth discussion of applications where we believe personal 3D printers can generate new business revenues and includes a ten-year (volume and value) forecasts of personal 3D printers with breakouts by application. Also included in this report are 10-year projections of software, 3D scanners and services used in the personal 3D printer sector.

Thin-Film and Printed Batteries Markets 2014 - 2021

View Full Report -

NanoMarkets has provided coverage on the thin-film and printed batteries market for six years and has a deep understanding of what makes this market tick. During the period we have covered these power sources, some of the firms in this space have made slow but steady progress both technically and in terms of business development; a few of them are generating significant revenue. Other thin-film and printed battery firms have quit the market.

What have changed are the markets that are being addressed by these batteries. When the thin-film and printed battery business first appeared, the thought was that the main opportunity for them was RFID. But RFIDs have not taken off in the way that many people hoped. By contrast, these “thin” batteries have proved highly suited for powered smartcards, but for now this just a niche.
