has announced the addition of the "Conductive
Ink Markets 2014-2024: Forecasts, Technologies, Players" report
to their offering.
The conductive ink and paste business is a large market that will
generate $2 billion in 2014 in revenue at the ink/paste level.
This market however is segmented, consisting of many emerging and mature
markets. Overall, the market will experience 3.2% CAGR over the coming

increasingly becoming price and performance competitive with mature
incumbents. This too, coupled with fluctuating base metal prices,
suggests that companies must develop the right technology and market
strategy to benefit from thischanging market landscape.

It however underwent a period of distress characterised by tumbling
prices, bankruptcies and consolidation. This was triggered by the rapid
expansion of production capacity in China and the simultaneous reduction
of subsidies in Europe. In the same period however, other markets such
as the touch screen and the automotive (with conductive inks/paste)
sectors experienced continued growth while many others remained at a

crisis impacted the price of raw silver (the dominant technology),
causing it to increase by 4.5 times between 2009 and 2012. These trends
