Market Outlook for Nanomaterials for Electronics: Semiconductors, Solar, Displays, Sensors, RFID, Lighting

There is a myriad of applications using nanoparticles either on the market or under development. Considerable effort is being put into developing advanced defense applications for nanomaterials, which are unlikely to reach deployment for quite a few years to come but which could have a large impact on commercial applications. The scope and number of applications for nanoparticles continues to grow and companies are finding more and more uses for these materials.

The use of nanoparticles is set to escalate and the market has the potential to increase dramatically over the next ten years as more uses for these materials are developed and commercialized.

Nanomaterials are establishing themselves as a way forward for printed electronics in a number of ways. Inks using metallic nanoparticles promise higher conductivities and lower curing temperatures, nanosilicon inks may prove the best route to printed silicon, and carbon nanotube inks open up interesting new possibilities for ITO replacements, lighting and displays.

Nano materials will solve many of the business and technical challenges facing the electronics industry - particularly displays and semiconductors.

Reproducibility and control are major areas of focus in the manufacture of revolutionary nanoelectronic materials

  • Manufacturing and purification processes for CNT and nano wires that offers high purity, control of properties, reliability and low cost
  • Designer molecules for self-assembly
  • Designer molecules and nano composites for packaging materials

Technology from other industries is being leveraged in the development of new or revolutionary materials.

The value of materials will have much higher intellectual property content in the near future and the value of materials will increase in the next 5 years.
