    Gesture recognition will gradually replace today’s multifunctional touch screens with the result that the market for sensors and related components used in gestural control systems will grow from $770 million in 2014 to about $3.5 billion in 2019.  This according to a just-released report from NanoMarkets, “Gestural Recognition: Sensors, Cameras and Other Technology Opportunities—2014.” The report also predicts that “gesturing” will find its way into a wide variety of new applications, from factory automation to smart phones and the “home of the future.”  The report notes that the growing role of gestural recognition has been recognized in recent acquisitions by Intel, Apple and Fairchild in the gestural space.

     If smart glasses, such as Google “Glass” emerge as a mass market item – perhaps replacing smart phones as the main mobile computing and communications platform over the next decade -- they will generate $3.2 billion in new business revenues for the makers of sensors, lightguides, microdisplays and micromirrors.  So says a new report from NanoMarkets.  The report, "Smart Glasses:  Component and Technology Markets -- 2014” notes that smart glasses technology is at an early stage of development and will create opportunities for both novel optical subsystems such as virtual retinal displays (VRDs) and advanced human-computer interfaces such as eye-tracking and brain-computer interfaces (BCIs).

    According to a new report from industry analyst firm NanoMarkets, the global market for transparent conductors (TCs) will generate $4.6 Billion (USD) in 2019.  This report, “Transparent Conductor Markets: 2014-2021” sees non-ITO TCs accounting for $1.8 Billion in revenues in 2019 up from $640 million today.   According to NanoMarkets, ITO will account for just 60 percent of the TC market in 2019, with revenues from ITO having peaked. NanoMarkets remains bullish on the alternative TC business but believes that this report gives a more realistic valuation of the TC sector than other quoted industry sources.

    This is the latest report from NanoMarkets’ longstanding coverage of the markets for transparent conductors which began in 2007.
