Gold ink market to reach $50 million in 2018

Gold ink market to reach $50 million in 2018

In 2013 the market size for gold ink for electronic and electrical applications is less than $1 million - used mainly for academic work and some early stage work in healthcare products. However, a new report from IDTechEx Research titled New Opportunities for Gold: Conductive Inks for the Electronics Industry 2013-2019 finds that with demand from medical applications, edge connectors and interfaces with organic materials such as sensors the market will growth to $50 million in 2018, in the "most likely" scenario.

3D Printing- Market Analysis and Forecast

3D printing constitutes a raft of technologies which have the common feature of additively generating a 3-dimensional object from a digital model. A key feature of 3D printing is the degree of complexity the technologies enable.

Will graphene supercapacitors be the best?

Will graphene supercapacitors be the best?

Questions arise as to how much supercapacitors can improve if organisations more like NASA took over. After all, if supercapacitors can replace many batteries when, as today, they store one tenth of their energy, what will happen in the marketplace if they approach the theoretical ten times the lithium-ion battery figure while acting as a near-perfect "battery"?

Smart Packaging Comes to Market

Smart Packaging Comes to Market

This article concerns the market for electronic smart packaging devices, increasingly known as "e packaging". Global demand for these devices will grow rapidly from a mere $76 million in 2013 to $1.45 billion in 2023. Most of this will involve consumer packaged goods CPG. The rapid growth will be driven by trials now being carried out by leading CPG companies and the rapid technical developments emanating from over 3000 organisations, half of them academic, that are currently working on printed and potentially printed electronics. There will also be growth from existing applications such as talking pizza boxes, winking logos on multipacks of biscuits and bottles of rum, compliance monitoring blisterpacks in drug trials, prompting plastic bottles of drugs that prompt the user, testers on batteries and reprogrammable decoration on mobile phones. However, our projected adoption, large as it may seem, only represents a few percent of CPG packages being fitted with these devices in 2023.
