NanoMarkets Issues Latest Report on Opportunities for Silver Inks and Pastes
NanoMarkets today announced the release of its latest report on industrial silver markets titled "The Silver Inks and Pastes Market 2013-2020."
Glen Allen, Virginia - January 9, 2013
-- Industry analyst firmNanoMarketstodayannounced the release of its latest report on industrial silver markets titled "The Silver Inks and Pastes Market 2013-2020." The report quantifies the opportunities for printedsilver in electronics applications over the next eight years. While the industry willcontinue to drag from declining demand from the solar industry, NanoMarkets still seesopportunities for silver inks and pastes manufacturers both in traditional thick filmmarkets as well as emerging display, lighting and electronics markets.

About the report:
This report analyzes the opportunities for silver inks and pastes in all the relevant,major markets for printed silver circuitry, including PV, displays, lighting, RFIDs,sensors, and the traditional thick film applications. The report also discusses theproduct development and marketing strategies of some of the leading suppliers of silver inks and pastes, including DIC/Sun Chemical, DuPont, Ferro, Harima Chemical,Henkel, Heraeus, Ink-Tec, Methode, and others. Finally, the report includes a detailedeight-year forecasts for the materials in both volume and value terms and broken outby application, by ink/paste type (high-firing vs. low-temperature curing products), byink/past composition (nanosilver vs. conventional silver), and by printing method(screen-printing, ink-jet, and other methods).
From the Report:
Conventional photovoltaics (PV) are extremely cost-sensitive and expensive silver circuitry is increasingly being replaced with cheaper alternatives, especially in backsidePV metallization. NanoMarkets projects that silver inks and pastes in the PV sector willdecline from a value of $4.9 billion in 2013 to about $3.4 billion in 2020. Amid thegloom, however, there is some good news:Silver's superior conductivity and compatibility with low-temperature processing means
