DUBLIN, Ireland, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/cm58v6/functional) has announced the addition of the "Concise Analysis of the International Functional Printing Market - Forecasts to 2020" report to their offering.

Functional printing is a production process that deposits a functional material in a controlled and selective pattern upon a material. It holds a major potential to enable the next wave in high volume electronic production. The existing printing technologies are not only used for printing graphics but, also, have extended their application for printing electronic components and are, hence, used for functional printing. It is used for a number of novel applications like photovoltaic, OLED displays, sensors, RFID, batteries, and OLED lighting.

The report provides the dynamics of the market along with comprehensive forecasts of revenue with regards to technology, materials, applications, coating, and geography. The functional printing technologies are classified into inkjet, screen printing, gravure, flexography, and others. The material section is further segmented into substrates and ink; and substrates section includes glass, plastic, and paper; and ink has been segmented into conductive inks, dielectric ink, graphene inks, and so on. Applications of functional printing include sensors, displays, batteries, RFID tags, lighting, photovoltaic, medical, and others. This report covers geographical regions which include North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World.

The major factor fuelling the growth of the market, currently, is the fact that it is a low cost manufacturing process. The conventional high-volume-low-cost printing techniques enable the production of lightweight and robust electronic components at a lower cost; and this printing process does not involve etching, metalizing, and copper plating, thus eliminating the wastewater treatment. The stability of the ink for drop formation, the viscosity that must be suitable for the print heads and the ink interaction with the substrate is taken into account while printing. These are the major factors inhibiting the growth of the market.

The market has been witnessing the convergence of several industry sectors such as printing, materials (substrate, inks, and chemicals), and electronics; which facilitate the development of new products. The major companies into the functional printing market are GSI technologies (U.S.), Eastman Kodak Company (U.S.), Mark Andy Inc (U.S.), Toppan Printing Co.Ltd (Japan), BASF SE (Germany), DuPont (U.S.), KovioInc (U.S.), Toya Ink International Corp (U.S.), Vorbeck Materials (U.S.), Haiku Tech (U.S.), Xaar (U.K.), Avery Dennison (U.S.), Blue spark Technologies Inc (U.S.), Universal Display Corporation (U.S.), and others.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develop...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
