The global market for conductive inks is estimated at >$3 billion in annual revenues and will continue to grow as applications proliferate in sensors, wearables, smart packaging, flexible electronics, OLEDs, thin film transistors, photovoltaics, smart textiles, automotive and more.
Conductive inks are mainly used in the printed electronics industry to produce printed circuits, organic light-emitting diodes, electrochemical sensors, energy storage devices, solar cells, radio-frequency identification tags, and battery test stripes.
Not only will demand across all current markets grow, but the development of new materials and processes is leading to the creation of new market opportunities for conductive ink producers and suppliers in flexible, customized and 3D printed electronics.
A large variety of conductive inks have been developed such as metal nanoparticle inks, metal precursor inks, carbon nanotube inks, graphene inks, conductive polymer inks etc. Copper and silver inks will continue to dominate the market for the next few years but growth in flexible electronics necessitates the development of new materials.
