REPORT # Nano-369 PUBLISHED August 09, 2011
Functional Inkjet Inks for Digital Fabrication Applications -2011
  • Advanced Materials
  • Emerging Electronics

    The report quantifies the future revenues from the fluids used in jetting industrial prototypes and 3-D models, automotive components, printed circuit boards (PCBs), MEMS, security printing, smart textiles, electronic displays, smart packaging and RFID tags, ceramics, photovoltaics and biochips.  

    The report provides eight-year projections (both volume and value) of inks used in such applications, with break outs by ink type, printer technology and world region.  Inks covered comprise aqueous, solvent, ultraviolet/electron beam (UV/EB), hot melt/phase-change and oil-based.  The break-out by printer technology covers continuous printing, piezoelectric, thermal and valve jet.

    This report identifies both immediate opportunities for functional jetting inks and longer-term one and the strategies that are being used to capitalize on these opportunities.  Among the firms discussed in this report are Agilent, Bayer, Cambridge Display Technology, Cima NanoTech, Dai Nippon Printing, Dow Corning, DuPont, Fujifilm Dimatix, Hewlett-Packard, Kovio, Methode, Microfab, Mitsubishi, Objet Geometries, Samsung, Sartomer, Source Technologies, Sun Chemical, Teijin, Seiko Epson, VTT, Xaar, Xennia, Xenon and Z Corporation.
