GLEN ALLEN, VA /PRNewswire/ -- NanoMarkets, an industry analyst firm that covers thin-film, organic, and printed-electronics (PE) markets, is releasing a new database product for the printed electronics–materials sector. The Printed Electronics Materials Database will begin shipping this spring.
The database contains information and analysis of 200 plus firms in the printed electronics–materials market and market forecasts of the inks, substrates, and barrier materials used in printing displays, RFID, transistors, backplanes, photovoltaics, memory, sensors, and batteries. The database also includes an analysis of the trends and developments driving the PE business and how these factors are impacting the opportunities for specialty chemicals, materials, inks, and substrates manufacturers.
About the Product
The database contains three modules. A supplier index that provides users with comprehensive data of the leading companies that are shaping the PE materials business; a materials module that presents the outlook for different PE materials; and a market and trends module that provides analysis on how the PE industry will progress in the next 18 months.
The supplier index provides detailed information about more than 200 leading PE materials firms, including:
- Product focus
- Markets served and marketing strategy
- Manufacturing processes used
- Research and development
- Strategic investments and partnerships
- Financial performance
- Geographic involvement
Each profile also includes strategic assessment of each company's strengths, weaknesses, and prospects for the future.
The materials module addresses materials trends and presents the overall outlook for the PE materials business in both quantitative and qualitative terms. It contains forecasts and pricing analysis for a variety of inks and substrates, including:
- Metallic (silver, gold, copper, and nickel)
- Organic (polymers, small molecules, oligomers, and dendrimers)
- Inorganic (carbon nanotubes, nanowires, silicon, and metallic oxides)
- Substrates (plastic, glass, paper, and foil)
Conductors, semiconductors, dielectrics, photovoltaic materials, and light- emitting materials are all covered and consideration is given to the growing role of nanomaterials in printed electronics.
The materials module also provides information and guidance on key trends in printed electronics materials in the following areas:
- Physical and electrical properties (flexibility, conductivity, thermal, and environmental stability)
- Manufacturing processes (screen, inkjet, flexo, gravure, spin coating, mixed printing/deposition approaches, and roll-to-roll)
- R&D and formulation/chemistry trends
The market and trends module provides qualitative analysis and market forecasts for how the industry will progress over the next 18 months, based on developments in all aspects of the value chain. Areas covered will include:
- Current and future applications requirements
- Impact of technology, manufacturing, and device developments
- Market acceptance for new materials
- Pricing and bill of materials (BOM) trends
- Market forecasts in volume and value terms
The database will be updated and extended every six months to keep up with the rapidly expanding PE sector. Clients can subscribe to the database annually or purchase individual modules. This database will provide invaluable information for manufacturers and investors involved with or interested in the PE business. Sample profiles are available upon request.
