Transparent Conductive Films Market Overview:
Transparent Conductive Film (TCF) Market is expected to garner $5.86 billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 17.2% during the forecast period 2014 - 2020. Transparent conductive films market refers to the manufacturing and application of TCF panels either on glass or on films. The TCF market in this report includes both glass and film based transparent conductors. This market is highly fragmented and complex in nature. There are numerous players creating a perfect competitive environment. The market is growing primarily due to rising demand for touch enabled devices and market penetration of tablets and tablet PCs. OLED lighting, OPV and DSSSC are also potential markets but they are expected to experience slower growth during the forecast period. Key reason for this slow growth would be existing competition and uncertainty in demand for the same.
Declining cost of smartphones, rising adoption of touch UI interface devices, low power consumption, minimal reflection, thinness and flexibility & robustness are the key drivers of this market. Lack of one-size-fits-all solution and multiplicity of options for a specific application are the two key factors deterring the market growth. Displays and photovoltaic applications are offering huge potential for the application of TCF in the coming years. Moreover, rising demand for tablet PCs and notebooks would also give a thrust to the market during the forecast period.
The Transparent conductive films market is segmented on the basis of technology, application and geography. Key technologies implemented in manufacturing of TCF include ITO on PET, ITO on Glass, Non ITO oxides, Silver Nanowires, Graphene, Carbon Nanotube, Metal Mesh, Micro fine Wire, and PEDOT. The application industries included in this report include smartphones, tablets and tablet PCs, notebooks, all-in-one PCs, monitors, TV displays, OLED lighting, and OPV & DSSC. The global market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and LAMEA. Asia Pacific was the leading region in the TCF market followed by North America in 2013. Most of the electronic device manufacturing factories are concentrated in the Asia Pacific region. This is the key reason for the substantial market share of this region.
