Smart Clothing Markets: Opportunities for Sensors and Smart Materials
Clothing that could be plausibly called “smart” has been available for years.  But it is only recently that this product category has shifted out of the niche status and many expect it will become a significant revenue generator for firms at all levels of the clothing supply chain; from materials suppliers to retailers.    One key reason for this is that powerful new sensor and smart materials technology is becoming commercially available that provides for a seamless integration between aesthetically pleasing clothing materials and electronic devices.  A new technological discipline – fibertronics – has emerged that is intended to make this integration even tighter. Meanwhile, new smart materials are emerging that make it possible for clothing

Smart Glasses: Component and Technology Markets: 2014
Smart Glasses are spectacles embodying the wearable computing concept and either (1) allowing people to see better or (2) acting as an enabling technology for augmented reality (AR). Although currently at an early stage of development, smart glasses have been touted as the next stage of mobile communications – a platform that could eventually replace smartphones. Although Google Glass is currently the poster child for smart glasses at the present time, there may be as many as 30 firms offering smart glasses – or planning to do so – at the present time.  These products differ significantly in their price points and in intended end-user markets. They also embody very different optical technologies, human-computer interfaces and system capabilities.  As a result

At the big picture level, not much seems to have changed in the OLED materials space since NanoMarkets reported on it in 2013.  It is still a business that is dominated by Samsung and one that appears to be perpetually waiting; for OLED TVs, for OLED lighting and for solution processed OLED panels.   The arrival or non-arrival of large OLED lighting panels and TVs will have a profound impact on the amount of OLED materials that will be needed, while solution processing will need a different kind of OLED material. These factors are just as important to the OLED materials business as they were in 2013.  But they remain just as uncertain.   This is not to say that nothing happened during 2013 in the world of OLED materials.  Mobile OLED displays got bigger to meet

OLED lighting has been available for four years now, but with few signs of its moving beyond the luxury and specialist lighting sector.  Also, the disappearance of GE from this space is another reason to treat OLED lighting with a little less respect than it once had.   So is it time to wave goodbye to OLED lighting as a large-scale business opportunity and label it “niche only?” The case can be made.  But then again some large lighting suppliers remain bullish on this technology and appear to mean what they say.  &nb

Smart Window Markets - 2012
After many years of being no more than a niche, the smart windows market now seems ready to take off.  NanoMarkets believes that several factors are combining to make this happen.  The most obvious perhaps is that there is growing awareness of energy conservation, green building and fuel efficient transportation by building owners and governments.  Second, the addressable markets for smart windows are expanding rapidly as the result of the growing wealth in China, India and to some extent Latin America. Concurrent with these demand side changes, improved smart windows technologies are emerging.  And as a result of all this, we believe that the smart windows market provides important growth opportunities to everyone from materials/coatings suppliers to glass manufactu

Transparent Electronics Markets - 2012
  In the past few years there has been much talk about “transparent electronics,” but few, if any, attempts to assess the potential size of this market or whether there are genuine opportunities to be found in it.  This new NanoMarkets report fills this gap and provides the first assessment of transparent electronics from a commercial – rather than technological – perspective.  The report covers both opportunities at the applications and at the materials level. The report begins with an examination of the applications that have been proposed to date for transparent electronics.  Most of these have yet to be commercialized and in this survey we analyze each of the applications with a view to determining whether they have a real chance

Markets for Transparent Conductors in the Touch Screen Sensor Market 2012
  The touch-screen sensor market has emerged as a key market for the novel transparent conductors.  Many of the suppliers of these materials have targeted the touch screen market as a source of new revenues and for a number of reasons.  Thanks to Apple, this market is viewed universally as a fast growth customer for transparent conductors, while at the same time the touch sector is said by many to be more open to adoption of new materials and processes than the mainstream display industry. NanoMarkets has been covering the transparent conductor market for six years now.  We largely agree with the above analysis, but see it as incomplete.  While providing much-valued early revenues for transparent conductor firms, we believe that the touch sensor market will r

Opportunities for Transparent Conductors in the Touch-Screen Display Industry - 2011
Touch-screen devices have gone from being a sleepy niche in the display industry to one of its fastest growing segments.  Touch-screen displays – or rather the touch sensors that sit on top of them – are also large users of transparent conductive coatings.  No surprise then that touch screens are seen as an immediate opportunity for the many new firms that are crowding into the transparent conductor market.  And the attractiveness of the touch-screen market to the makers of novel transparent conductors is enhanced by the fact that the touch- sensor industry seems more than willing to rid themselves of a dependence on ITO with its high costs and low mechanical performance. However, today one medium-sized factory producing transparent conductors is large eno

The Markets for Flexible Glass - 2011
Report Summary "Flexible electronics" is an idea that has been with us for a while, but is only now beginning to inch towards reality. The concept of displays that can be rolled up and put in a pocket, or solar and lighting panels that conform to contours of a building fabric are attractive ideas, both from aesthetic and practical standpoints. But they will require flexible substrates and while a large share of the flexible electronics and solar panel market will be supported on plastic substrates, NanoMarkets believes that a substantial share of flexible substrate market will be garnered by "flexible glass." In addition, we believe that flexible glass has an important role to play in the flexible encapsulation business. Flexible glass brings to the market the familiarity, transpare

Next-Generation Photovoltaic and Thermoelectric Markets - 2011
Report Summary It has been suggested that today’s dominant PV materials, crystalline silicon and cadmium telluride, are more likely to be replaced by entirely novel high-performance PV and thermoelectric technologies and materials, than today’s more well-known thin-film alternatives.   Prior generations of PV were developed using traditional R&D methodologies, where experiments to optimize materials and structures were conducted in series over many years.  Companies could reasonably expect it to take 10 to 20 years from first lab results through R&D to high-volume manufacturing.  However, the next generation of PV is borrowing much speedier research methodologies from the pharmaceutical industry.  In particular, it is using “combinatori

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 se
