DUBLIN, Ireland, March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kf863f/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.
This report is international in scope. The forecasts herein are worldwide forecasts and we have not been geographically selective in the firms that we have covered in this report or interviewed in order to collect information. Where there are markets and opportunities that are oriented in one way or another to one particular region we note this. For example, many of the important OEMs for TCs are in the display industry, which is strongly focused in Asia, while thin-film PV makers tend to be in the U.S. and Europe.

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 develo...
