While products in the flexible and printed electronics (PE) space cover a huge gamut of applications, they have certain elements in common. One of the common elements is the need for conductivity. PE applications ranging from sensors to solar, touch screens and displays to near field communication (NFC) and printed RFID tags and more utilize conductive materials.
The market for conductive inks is booming. Dr. Khasha Ghaffarzadeh, head of consulting for IDTechEx, leading consultants in the field of printed and flexible electronics and organizers of the annual Printed Electronics USA, Europe and Asia conferences, said that the conductive ink and paste market will be $2.3 billion in 2015, and will continue to grow.
“This market is set to grow to nearly $3.2 billion in 2025, registering a CAGR of 3.26% over the decade,” Dr. Ghaffarzadeh said. “Conductive inks and pastes are used in a variety of application. The largest sector is photovoltaics (PV
