Global Conductive Inks Markets, 2021-2026 – Conductive inks are gaining in popularity as demand for printed electronics grows

Dublin, November 29, 2021– (work wire)–The Conductive inks: global markets to 2026. Report added to an offer.

The global conductive inks market should grow from $3.6 billion in 2021 to $4.4 billion by 2026, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.0% for the period from 2021 to 2026.

  • The North American market for conductive inks should grow from $770.9 million in 2021 to $911.9 million by 2026, at a compound annual growth rate of 3.4% for the period from 2021 to 2026.

  • The Asia Pacific conductive inks market should grow from $2.1 billion in 2021 to $2.7 billion by 2026 at a compound annual growth rate of 6.4% for the period from 2021 to 2026.

Conductive inks are gaining in popularity in the market as the demand for printed electronics grows. Currently, most of the industry uses printed electronics due to the increasing need for lightweight components. It is easy to handle and is a better alternative to traditional systems.

Conductive inks are used in these printed electronic devices to conduct electricity. They consist of conductive pigments such as silver, copper, graphene/carbon or conductive polymers mixed with other solutions. The inks can be easily deposited on the substrate without long curing time. Nowadays, stretchable conductive inks are gaining traction in smart textiles. It does not break easily, making it an ideal solution for smart wearable devices.

The conductive inks market can be analyzed based on two primary categories: type and application. Based on type, the global conductive inks market is segmented into silver, carbon/graphene, copper, conductive polymers, and others. In 2020, silver-based conductive inks accounted for the largest share of the global market. Silver remains the primary material of choice for conductive inks due to its high performance stability, excellent conductivity, and ability to be manufactured in large quantities from silver.

On the basis of application, the global conductive inks market is segmented into photovoltaics, automotive applications, touch screens, membrane switches, biosensors, RFID and others. In 2020, the photovoltaic segment will dominate the global conductive inks market. Conductive inks, especially silver inks, are widely used in the manufacture of photovoltaic cells. The explosive growth of the photovoltaic industry with the increase in the installation of photovoltaic panels worldwide is expected to increase the demand for conductive inks for use in the production of photovoltaic cells.

The Asia Pacific region is the largest consumer of conductive inks. China, in particular, produces 80% of the world’s photovoltaic cells, making it one of the largest consumers of conductive inks. On the other hand, North America accounts for the second largest share of the global market, followed by Europe.

The primary drivers of the rapid growth of conductive inks are their contributions to the electronic textiles and wearable technology sectors. It is now more popular than any other traditional solution because it is easy to configure, allowing it to meet a wide range of industry requirements.

It is considered as one of the greatest solutions in the field of electronic textiles as it can be added even after the manufacture of the base product, without disrupting the textile manufacturing process.
