In mold electronics: the next frontier for transparent conductive film
In Mold Electronics is making a commercial comeback. The behind-the-scenes interest in IME remains robust. The first wave of products are close to market launch, the value networks are being enhanced, volume manufacturers are more engaged than ever, and the material set is transitioning beyond conductive inks to include transparent conductive films, sensors, actuators, and so on. Overall, we expect 2017/18 to the years when IME applications finally grow after years of on and off starts.

Emerging application areas for silver nanoparticle inks
Silver nanoparticles have been in the technology-push and pre-commercialisation phase for almost a decade now. May companies have come and gone, and yet success has remained largely elusive. The mood is however beginning to turn. The business landscape, once dominated by small pioneering firms, now also includes large suppliers. The end users, once put off by the high up-front price as well as performance uncertainty of Ag nanoinks, are now seriously engaged. This article gives a top-level overview of several emerging applications areas.
