Research and Markets: Global Markets for Metal Meshes as Transparent Conductors 2014 - New Developments

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/834hgm/markets_for_metal) has announced the addition of the "Markets for Metal Meshes as Transparent Conductors 2014" report to their offering.

This report analyzes new developments in metal meshes that make them a serious contender as a TC.

While all metal-based TCs used to be lumped together in one category, the TC industry now distinguishes between metal meshes, in which the metal is patterned in a regular grid, and nanowire structures, in which much smaller metal structures form a random network.

This report covers only metal meshes, be they made from silver, copper, or other metals. We do look at the overall TC market to analyze how metal meshes fit into the market but do not report on other TC materials in detail. Our separate Transparent Conductors report covers the wide range of materials being used as TCs.

This report expands greatly upon the relatively small section on metal meshes in our last transparent conductors report. We especially look at the growing number of companies manufacturing metal meshes and evaluate their strategies, offerings, capabilities, and readiness for volume production. There are at least 15 companies with products worth considering, a major change from just a short time ago.

We cover opportunities in several sectors where metal meshes are especially promising. The first of these is in touch panels, where applications include a range of display sizes, from phones and tablets to laptop computers. This is the most important market for meshes in the next few years.

Over the eight-year forecast period, several other applications are likely to increase in importance. Metal meshes are very good for large panels, because they can spread the voltage across the entire panel. Fine pitch metal meshes are compelling for OLED lighting panels, although the commercial success of these panels is in no way guaranteed. There are definitely opportunities in OLED TVs, and solar panels, especially thin film and organic PV.
