Organic displays are the largest revenue source for organic electronics markets and it hold more than 30% of the market share. Further, OLED displays is the largest revenue generating display type in the organic electronics market. OLED displays find application in laptops, tablets, TV sets and other electronic displays. Asia Pacific, geographically, is the leading region in terms of revenue generation as most of the buyers of organic electronics products are the manufacturers of electronic products such as mobile devices and television sets. The fact that the electronic industry is the key application sector, APAC countries are leading the market. Photovoltaic is another prospective application area for organic electronic products and holds huge potential due to the growing demand for pollution free and renewable energy sources. High initial investment is the only hurdle to the adoption of PV's in countries that are witnessing energy crisis. Technological advancements would ultimately pave the way for an extensive acceptance of the technology. The positive momentum consequentially would shoot the demand for organic components used in OPV, DSSC and CIGs. The cut-throat rivalry among the LCD display manufacturers for the last few years is the key reason for OLED displays to gain competitive advantage. Irrespective of its expensiveness, OLED displays have gained momentum and the advent of flexible OLED have proved to be a revolutionary breakthrough for OLED manufacturers. In the current scenario, ORFID holds a very small share in the market, but, the probability of ORFID to replace RFID gives it a potential to grow in future.
The South Africa IP video surveillance and VSaaS market is at an evolving phase. After the impact of the recession during 2008ï¿½2010, the South African video surveillance market was cushioned by the constructions for FIFA World Cup in 2010. The IP video surveillance and VSaaS market gained momentum since then, slowly replacing the analog surveillance systems.
A conduit system is a set of tubes which enables the protection and routing of electrical wires in buildings, thereby providing a safe pathway for power and low-voltage communication. The structure of a cable conduit is mostly tubular, made of metals (stainless steel, galvanized steel, or aluminum) or non-metals such as plastic, and it can be either rigid or flexible.
Smart Elevators are advanced systems that allow automated vertical transportation of goods or passengers. As this system utilizes automation, it reduces the waiting time and increases traffic management efficiency in residential, commercial and other buildings. Smart Elevator systems consist of new-age digital security system controls, i.e., biometrics, touch screen, destination dispatching & access control systems, which make them advanced.
Introduction of Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) systems have made the examination, detection and mapping of objects easier than conventional methods. Use of laser light provides accurate and precise data points in short time. LIDAR systems are used over conventional surveying methods due to their ability to provide highly accurate data and 3D images in a shorter time. Improved automated processing ability of LIDAR systems in terms of image resolutions and data processing capabilities over other technologies are the major factors that are presently driving the global market.
Image sensor detects images and conveys information to central monitoring system. It is used in electronic imaging devices, such as digital camera, camera modules, medical imaging equipment, and others. These sensors are also used for in automotive applications security purposes. It is used for traffic management applications, such as detection of moving violations, railroad crossing monitoring, and detection of traffic rules violations. Image sensors have become smaller, cheaper, and consume less power due to technological advancements.
Transparent display or see-through display is an electronic technology that offers features to the users to see what is being displayed on the glass and beyond it at the same time. The global display market is expected to attain revenue of $164 billion by 2017 and transparent display technology allows end-users to experience augmented reality, which would encourage them to adopt transparent display in multiple applications. The key driver for the market growth is that the technology allows users to view the digital world and stay attuned to the reality simultaneously. Technological advances in the display market allow use of nanoparticles and transparent sensors in the electronic circuit, which allows developers to manufacture transparent displays.
