Critical business intelligence covering forecasts, players, case studies, opportunities and technology and market assessment
There is exciting change and opportunities occurring in the advanced functional materials market. For example, the conductive ink and paste business is a large market but fragmented consisting of many emerging and mature markets. Notable markets are photovoltaics, touch screens, automotive and sensors. Growth will be unevenly spread with several target markets experiencing rapid growth while others decline. There is also now rapid innovation in copper inks and silver alloys, in addition to new sintering processes, fuelled by new applications and changes in existing ones.
Transparent conductive film is another related hot sector. The market growth is fuelled primarily by touch devices, but other applications are also slowly growing in importance. This market is currently dominated by ITO on film, but many alternatives are gaining market share. These include silver nanowires, metal mesh, carbon nanotubes, PEDOT, graphene, and more.
In addition, while CNTs are now taking off in energy storage devices, graphene suppliers are focussing and prioritising new applications. Other materials such as Quantum Dots have created a $500 million market at the device level while new materials are being sought for 3D printing and heat management.
All of these sectors comprise of a complex and rapidly changing technology and market landscape, which can make it difficult to identify genuine opportunities for companies involved or wishing to get involved or to see the current state of play.
This forum addresses both the business and technologies involved - providing deep depth including significant market data to allow you to understand these complex landscapes. Attendees will leave with a clear, quantified view of the markets, technology assessment and development roadmaps, key player profiles and their strategy for market adoption, with lessons from success and failures.
The forum is hosted by IDTechEx, which has been studying this topic since 1999, and which is widely cited as a global expert on these topics. Research is based on direct interviews with more than 500 companies, in addition to informal interviews with approximately 1,000 companies each year. IDTechEx analysts are deeply technical (typically PhD level) and commercially experienced, conducting research from bases in Europe, Asia and USA in eight languages.
This event is targeted to those involved in growth strategy, business development, research and engineering, innovation management. It is attended by companies involved in material supply, equipment manufacture, component and device manufacture, OEMs and systems integrators.
This forum can be attended on its own or in addition to the Flexible Displays, Batteries, TFTs, Lighting and Photovoltaics session, which is complimentary in subject matter. A discount is available for booking both.
IDTechEx Japanese Analysts Yasuo Yamamoto and Miwako Murakoshi, will be available at this Insight Forum for further discussion.
Please join IDTechEx Analysts for lunch and networking from 13:00-14:00
