Emerging Markets for Non-ITO Transparent Conductive Oxides

NEW YORK, Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Emerging Markets for Non-ITO Transparent Conductive Oxides


This report examines the market potential for transparent conductive oxides (TCOs) other than ITO.  Despite the newer advanced materials that are being proposed as substitutes for ITO, to date it is only TCOs that have successfully chased ITO out of a major end user market; thin-film PV, where fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) and aluminum zinc oxide (AZO) are already widely used.  At the same time newer TCOs are beginning to appear that have the potential to create new kinds of thin-film transistors (TFTs) for display backplanes for the newer types of displays such as those using OLEDs or even quantum dots.

In the rush to cover the newer transparent conductive nanomaterials, NanoMarkets believes analyst firms have neglected the opportunities that are emerging from the TCO sector and this report is designed to fill that gap.  In the report we examine the newer TCOs and where they fit into the applications space.  But we also analyze the market strategies available in the TCO sector and the opportunities for market leadership; something that has been absent in the more traditional and commodity like parts of the TCO business.

This report provides the eight-year forecasts by application and material type and also examines which firms will benefit from the development of an alternative TCOs.
