The conductive ink market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% over the next five years to reach $3,660 million by 2018. The Asia-Pacific, with its large Photovoltaic manufacturing, is the leading consumer of conductive inks and will continue to lead the market in the future.

The major driving factors of the conductive ink market are the increasing demand for efficiency and miniaturization in consumer electronics, which increases the demand for conductive inks to replace the bulky, energy consuming wires, and circuits. Conductive inks provide better energy efficiency, smaller size devices, and better durability than the traditional wire circuits. The numerous up-and-coming applications are being discovered due to the innovations and new product developments in this market. Conductive inks are now finding applications in batteries, fuel cells, among various others.

Upcoming opportunities in the conductive ink market include the development of graphene-based conductive inks which can provide mechanical flexibility and high performance at low cost. These inks can be used in complex devices to achieve high conductivity even at intricate levels. The other opportunity is the increasing use of nanomaterials. This is due to the higher conductivity of nanomaterials because of their smaller size of metal particles used in their development

Conventional conductive inks still dominate the market, and have above 70% control over the market. These inks are used for a wide range of applications, the major ones being photovoltaic and membrane switches. The photovoltaic industry is experiencing a troublesome phase due to the changes in the governmental policies and oversupply of PV modules. This has resulted in a major decline in revenue and a slow growth rate for the industry.

The conductive ink market has been analyzed in terms of value that concerns the four regions, namely, the Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Americas and Others. Asia-Pacific is the market leader in this industry. Major countries such as China, Japan, and India have also been analyzed to understand the growth trends in the Asia Pacific region. The various applications such as Photovoltaic, membrane switches, displays, bio-sensors, RFID, automotive, and PCB are covered and analyzed. The conductive inks have been segmented according to the type of metal or polymer present and the structure of the particles present in the inks.
