DALLAS, Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- During the past year the transparent conductor (TCs) market has continued to evolve. It seems that all the focus remains on the touch panel sector, where alternatives to ITO have genuinely established themselves. As a result, this latestreport in NanoMarkets' seven years of coverage of the transparent conductor market focuses heavily on the realities of the touch-sensor market for alternative TCs. Acknowledging that this is where the money is for now, we also discuss how some industry estimates of touch opportunities appear to be exaggerated and how there are serious technology challenges for touch down the road – challenges such as gestural control – that could hurt the current TC boomlet.
We also examine what other big changes are appearing in the TC opportunity space. The solar panel business is back, but with a new mix of PV technologies. What will this mean for the TC space? OLED lighting, which looked like might go into decline in our previous report, now looks like it is back on the board as a possible mass consumer of TCs. At the same time some the great hopes for alternative TCs, such as OLED TVs and flexible displays seem increasingly fanciful and may be areas that alternative TC firms pursue at their peril.

In this dynamic market environment, NanoMarkets believes that this new report provides the necessary strategic insight into how TC firms can best generate new business revenues in the in the display, solar panel and other sectors. This report also analyzes important developments on the TC materials front and it takes a look at what the next generation of transparent conductors will be like and how these materials will extend addressable markets.
This study also contains detailed eight-year forecasts in volume (square meters) and value terms. For each of the applications covered there are breakouts of demand for ITO, other TCOs, ITO/TCO inks, carbon nanotube films, nanosilver-based TCs, metal grids and conductive polymers. We have also included a forecast of ITO products by type (sputtering targets, films, coated glass, etc.). Finally, the strategies of the leading TC firms are also assessed in the context of the latest market developments.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
