Conductive Inks Market - Overview
Conductive inks are suitable for use in any pressure-sensitive automatic system. They are prepared and characterized via scanning electron microscopy, FTIR, and differential scanning calorimetry. These inks are obtained as a composite by mixing a solution of ethyl acrylate methyl acrylate (in 50:50 ratio) copolymer with carbon black and graphite into a solvent standard for acrylic polymers. Average electric resistance of these inks ranges from 40 ohms/cm to 150 ohms/cm.
Based on type, the conductive inks market has been segregated into silver conductive inks, copper conductive inks, conductive polymers, conductive nanotube inks, graphene/carbon inks, and others (including gold, nickel, and aluminum conductive inks). Based on application, the market has been divided into photovoltaic cells, displays, radio frequency identification, printed circuit boards, biosensors, and others (including printed antennas and flexible thin-film batteries). In terms of region, the global conductive inks market has been classified into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific held a prominent share of the global conductive inks market in 2017. China accounted for a major share of the conductive inks market in Asia Pacific in 2017, due to rise in the demand for conductive inks in end-user industries in the country such as electricals & electronics (E&E). The region offers immense potential for the conductive inks market. This can be ascribed to growth of the electronics industry in India, Malaysia, and ASEAN.
