REPORT # Nano-507 PUBLISHED January 16, 2012
Conductive Coatings in Electronics and Energy Markets
  • Advanced Materials
  • Emerging Electronics

    NanoMarkets believes that the 2012-2013 period will be an important one for conductive coatings manufacturers.   Once a staid and stable business, the conductive coatings industry has seen a steady demand for ESD and EMI/RFI coatings and new forms of energy storage, solar, energy-efficient lighting, and the rise of flexible and transparent displays, all with unique and challenging coatings requirements. 

    The industry is also seeing the emergence of nanomaterials and NanoMarkets is predicting that nanometals, graphene and carbon nanotubes will account for a sizeable part of the conductive coatings market in the not-to-distant future and that metal oxides and organic materials will make a greater impact on the conductive coatings market than ever before.

    Clearly the business is changing, forcing companies to become more dynamic and responsive to new forms of energy and electronics. 

    In this report NanoMarkets examines and quantifies the opportunities for conductive coatings. As with all our reports, this study includes a detailed eight-year forecast of conductive coatings markets by application and material and it also contains a discussion of some of the key conductive coatings materials suppliers and their product/market strategies.

    NanoMarkets has been providing analytical coverage of the conductive coatings market for more than four years and has developed an insider’s knowledge of the factors that shape it.
