Global Market for Powered Smart Cards to Reach $8.5 Billion by 2019; Printed Electronics Enable $6.2 billion in Product Sales by 2017

FARMINGTON, Conn., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Transparent conductors are an essential invention; they enable the touch screen technology smartphone users rely on to operate their mobile devices. As transparent conductor technology continues to generate revenues for the global market for displays, printed electronics will also contribute significant returns for the displays market. Meanwhile, smartcards powered by printed batteries and equipped with printed displays are changing the e-commerce and payments scene as they provide enhance security for eBay and MasterCard accounts.

Global Information Inc (GII) in partnership with premium market research publisher NanoMarkets, presents three excellent market research reports covering the global markets for powered smart cards, transparent conductors, and printed electronics.

Powered Smart Card Markets- 2012

The new report estimates that the global market for powered smart cards will grow from its current value of about $70 million today to about $8.5 billion (USD) by the year 2019, which corresponds to over 1.8 billion powered smart cards shipped. Within this same time period, the value of thin film and/or printed batteries for such smart cards will grow from just over $7.5 million today to $365 million in 2019, and the value of small information displays used in powered smart cards with grow from about $7 million today to over $715 million.

Other key findings from the report include: the biggest market for powered smart cards will be OTP cards, which will grow from a value of about $10.5 million in 2012 to nearly $1.4 billion in 2019; Printed batteries such as those marketed by Solicore will remain the dominant battery type used in powered smart cards. The market value for such printed batteries will surpass $331 million by the end of the forecast period in 2019; and Asia will represent a key growth region for powered smart cards. Today, Asia accounts for less than one percent of the overall powered smart card market, but by 2019 will account for nearly half, or almost $850 million.

Transparent Conductor Markets – 2012

Today most firms offering alternatives to ITO focus on the touch-screen sensor market but this sector is too small for many of these firms to generate significant revenues. Instead, NanoMarkets believes that the current rapid development of the OLED display and lighting market looks as if it will give a big boost to the makers of non-ITO TCs. While ITO is widely used in OLEDs it is not well suited to this application and the OLED sector is already beginning to seek alternative TCs.

Likewise with flexible displays. ITO may not work well for high-throughput R2R processes and one could never use ITO in a rollable display. There are good reasons to suppose that flexible displays will become a sizable market so this could be a major factor in the mainstreaming of non-ITO TCs.

In this report, NanoMarkets provides in-depth analysis of the applications from which TC firms will be able to make money in the next few years including touch-screens, OLEDs, e-paper, thin-film and building-integrated PV (BIPV), organic/DSC PV, smart windows, etc. The report examines implications for TCs of the rise of flexible and transparent electronics and provides an in-depth discussion of how non-ITO TCs may be able to break into the LCD market. For each application the report contains separate eight-year forecasts in terms of value ($ millions) and volume (square meters). Each forecast is also broken out by material type.

Printed Electronics Version 3.0: A Market Forecast

NanoMarkets sees the global market for printed displays taking a great leap forward as some of the many attempts to solution process OLEDs become successful. According to this report, revenues from PE-enabled products will reach $6.2 billion by 2017. Two of the most significant PE components in terms of revenue will be displays and batteries. Together, they are expected to produce more than $1.8 billion in revenues in 2017.

The report quantifies these opportunities in terms of revenues generated by PE V3.0 at three levels of the value chain. In addition, to an eight-year forecast of PE-enabled products, the report also contains projections of PE components and specialist inks. The components covered are thin-film transistors, memories, batteries, sensors, displays and lighting. The organizations discussed include: Agilent, Bank of America, Bemis, DuPont Teijin, eBay, E Ink, Enfucell, Esquire Magazine, Fujifilm Dimatix, GE, Gemalto, HelioVolt, Holst Centre, ISET, Jenn Feng, Kovio, MasterCard, Merck, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Nanosolar, Oxford Photovoltaics, PARC, Pioneer, PolyIC, PragmaticIC, Pragmatic Printing, Plastic Logic, Printed Electronics Limited, Qolpac, Samsung, Seiko Epson, SolarPrint, Sumitomo, Thin Film Electronics, Tokyo Electron, and UDC.
