A number of technical and operational trends within the semiconductor manufacturing industry are strengthening the need for more effective advanced equipment solutions. These trends include: Development of Smaller Semiconductor Features. The development of smaller features, now as small as 20nm in production and 10nm in R&D, enables semiconductor manufacturers to produce larger numbers of circuits per wafer and to achieve higher circuit performance. Transition to 3D device structures. Foundries are adopting 3D FinFET transistors starting at 14/16 nm technology nodes to get improved performance and use less power in 1x technology nodes. Memory makers will move to 3D NAND and vertical structures for next generation NAND technology. Transition to 3D Integration Technology. Three-dimensional (3D) integration of active devices, directly connecting multiple IC chips, offers many benefits, including power efficiency, performance enhancements, significant product miniaturization, and cost reduction.

A key objective of this report is to discuss how the latest technological trends – for example to light- and electroactive shape memory polymers (SMPs), or to novel shape memory alloys (SMAs) will expand addressable markets and create new opportunities for both major firms and start-ups. Included in this analysis: how particular shape memory materials are likely to perform in the marketplace and how SMAs and SMPs are most likely to find their respective niches and price points. This report also analyzes how end-user markets for shape memory materials are changing.

A new business opportunity is emerging for smart materials that exhibit multiple functionalities in a variety of different applications sectors. For example, in the construction sector we have now reached the point where it is possible to fabricate smart windows that combine self-dimming, solar energy generation and self-healing into a single IGU. In aerospace, some smart surfaces can monitor the structural health of wings and fuselage and then make modest repairs. In other cases, multifunctional smart coatings and surfaces may improve functionality, while at the same time improving aesthetics.

Smart composites leverage the commercial success of the composite technology model and apply it specifically to smart materials.  In regular composites two materials are combined to create a new material with functionality that is significantly different to the original materials. Typically, a smart composite is a smart material embedded in polymer, textiles, metal or concrete. In a few cases, smart composites are fabricated from two “dumb” materials that become smart only when they are combined. Our analysis suggests that these smart composites will have a growing role in a number of important applications and industry sectors. Many smart composites are inherently multifunctional and the latest smart composite technology even promises the ability to embed programmability into materials, enabling robotics-like behavior without embedded electronics.

In this report we identify the opportunities emerging from commercialization of smart textiles. These include textiles that are (1) fabricated from smart materials or (2) utilize sensing devices that are seamlessly integrated into the textile. The smart textile sector has taken off in the past few years, driven by the keen interest in the Internet-of-things (IoT) and enabled by the latest smart materials and powerful sensing devices. This report provides market coverage of the potential for emerging textile products where the textile is rapidly becoming the sensor.  The report also discusses how the latest generation of smart materials is expanding the market for advanced textiles. While the focus of this report is on the opportunity for smart textiles, we also discuss how the sensor industry can benefit from the latest trends in smart textiles and also how the supply chain for smart textiles is evolving.

As one of the top ten science breakthroughs of 2013, perovskite solar cells have shown potential both in the rapid efficiency improvement (from 2.2% in 2006 to the latest record 20.1% in 2014) and in cheap material and manufacturing costs. Perovskite solar cells have attracted tremendous attention from the likes of DSSC and OPVs with greater potential. Many companies and research institutes that focused on DSSCs and OPVs now transfer attention to perovskites with few research institutes remaining exclusively committed to OPVs and DSSCs. Perovskite solar cells are a breath of fresh air in the emerging photovoltaic technology landscape. They have amazed with an incredibly fast efficiency improvement, going from just 2% in 2006 to over 20.1% in 2015.
