The global market size of conductive inks is projected to reach USD 3.91 Billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 3.5% between 2016 and 2021. The growing solar industry in all the regions is expected to majorly drive the conductive inks market during the forecast period. The wide application in solar panels, automotive circuits, and electronic & electrical equipment is also expected to drive the global conductive inks market.

The conductive inks market is classified based on application, namely, photovoltaic, membrane switches, displays, automotive, sensors, RFID, and printed circuits. The market is dominated by the photovoltaic segment mainly due to increased application in solar panels for renewable energy. On the other hand, application of conductive inks in membrane switches, displays, and automotive circuits is also expected to drive the market during the forecast period. The RFID segment is projected to register the highest growth rate, in terms of value, between 2016 and 2021.

The conductive inks market is classified based on type such as silver flake, dielectric, carbon/graphene, silver nanoparticle, silver nanowire, and copper flake. Silver flake is the major type of conductive inks that accounted for maximum share of the market in 2015. Silver flake is the most commonly used conductive ink technology that has applications in many industries such as photovoltaic, biosensors, membrane switches, PCB, and EMI shielding. Silver flake is a fully evolved conductive ink technology and is produced in bulk by major companies such Du Pont Microcircuit Materials (U.S.), Henkel (U.S.), Heraeus (Germany), and Sun Chemical (U.S.).

Asia-Pacific is projected to be the largest market during the forecast period. This is due to the presence of countries such as China and Japan that are leading the conductive inks market in the region. China is the biggest producer not only in this region, but also globally, due to its rapidly growing photovoltaic and consumer electronics industry. Europe was the second-largest market in 2015. Germany is the largest market in Europe, driving the regional market for conductive inks. Silver flake and photovoltaic are the respective type and application that dominated the European conductive inks market in 2015. This dominance is expected to continue during the forecast period.

Conductive Ink Market

The major factor restraining the growth of the conductive inks market is lack of technical awareness. The technical drawback is that these conductive inks lack chemical compatibility with most of the polymers, which is necessary to provide mechanical endurance. Another factor restraining the growth of conductive inks market is the high cost of silver ink. Silver is one of the most widely used metals in the electronics industry because of its high conductivity, oxidation stability, and other unique properties. However, the fluctuations in the silver prices have created a shift toward the low-cost conductive metals such as copper, carbon, graphene, aluminum, and others.

Some of the key players of the conductive inks market are Du Pont (U.S.), Methode Electronics (U.S.), Heraeus (Germany), Henkel (Germany), Metalor (China), Sun Chemical Corporation (U.S.), Applied Nanotech Holdings (U.S.), Taiyo Ink (Japan), and NovaCentrix (U.S.). These players compete with each other, in terms of prices, and offer a wide range of products to meet the market requirements.
