NEW YORK, April 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
NanoMarkets has been providing guidance on the thin-film and printable battery market for more than five years. In this new report, we analyze the latest developments in thin-film batteries and how they will lead to increasing business opportunities. In its assessment of the latest technology, this report compares the existing technologies underpinning thin-film batteries and also examines the latest thinking on the electrode and electrolyte materials, showing how they can contribute to the growth of the thin-film battery sector. In addition, we take a look at the synergy that is rapidly developing between thin batteries and energy harvesting. For many years, thin film batteries have seemed to be a technology in search of an application. However, in this report NanoMarkets shows that there are true applications arising for these kinds of products and how the various firms in this space plan to make money in the future. As with all NanoMarkets reports, this report includes an eight-year forecast in volumes and value terms. We also discuss the funding of firms in this space and how that will shape the thin-film battery market.
This report will be released in June 2011 and is priced at pre-publication rates.
