In this report, BCC Research examines the global transparent conductive films and technology markets revenue potential and the current state of the market. The analysis includes a detailed survey of upcoming organizations in the market as well as existing players. At the industry level, BCC Research identifies, examines, describes and provides global and regional market sizes for 2019, 2020 and 2025.

While a wide range of companies operate in the market, these companies can be classified as -

  • Chemicals and high-performance material manufacturers.
  • Electronics and electronic materials manufacturers.
  • Nanomaterial and nanotechnology companies.
  • Diversified industrial manufacturing companies.

In terms of market size, the Asia-Pacific region is the largest market for transparent conductive films. The Asia-Pacific region is also witnessing the strongest growth rate and is expected to continue to be the strongest-growing region in the coming years. North America is the second-largest market. Europe is the third-largest market and is expected to see a moderate growth rate. The market for transparent conductive films and technologies is expected to be moderate to low in Middle East and Africa, and South America. However, these regions are witnessing a higher growth rate than North America and Europe. The Middle East and Africa, with a higher growth rate, will see some increase in its market share.

In the analysis presented in this report, BCC Research identified the following key points -

  • The global market for transparent conductive films and technologies is estimated to have reached REDACTED in 2019.
  • The global market is estimated to increase to REDACTED by the end of 2020 and increase to REDACTED by 2025.
  • The total geographic and segment-wide CAGR is projected to be REDACTED over the forecast period, 2020 through 2025, indicating strong growth.

Segmentation by application shows that smartphones are the major segment and is among the strongest-growing segments. Smartphones are followed by wearable devices. Wearable devices are expected to see the strongest growth as the wearables market/industry itself is a strong-growing market. The wearables market is witnessing strong growth worldwide and among various use areas; demand for transparent conductive films will see strong growth. Wearables are followed by tablets, other LCDs and laptops."

Report Scope:

For the purpose of this report, transparent conductive films are defined as thin films of optically transparent and electrically conductive material. Transparent conductive films, or TCFs, are used as transparent electrodes in the manufacturing of touch screens, LCDs, cover electrodes for solar cells, organic light-emitting diodes, etc. TCFs consist of a transparent polymer-based substrate (50150 m thick) on which a thin layer of conductive material is applied (less than 100 nm thick). Conductive layers usually employ metal oxides (InO2:Sn, SnO2:F), silver nanofibers, metal meshes (copper, silver, gold), graphene, conductive polymers (PEDOT: PSS) or carbon nanotubes. TCFs have become integral components of many devices, including electrochromic glass, solar panels, and LCD and OLED displays. This is a growing market.

Currently, transparent conductive films are mostly produced using indium tin oxide (ITO), a degenerately doped n-type semiconductor. However, due to advantages such as processability, stability and high conductivity, carbon nanotubes have received strong attention from electronics-industry researchers over the past several years as an alternative to ITO. Metal mesh is another material that is witnessing strong demand and growth due to several advantages, including high flexibility.

  • This report covers the global market for transparent conductive films and technologies for various end-user application industries. The market is broken down by application, type and material. Revenue forecasts from 2020 to 2025 are given for each segment, and regional markets with estimated values derived from manufacturers total revenues.
  • The report also includes a discussion of the major players across each regional market. Further, it explains the major drivers and regional dynamics of the global TCF market and current trends within the industry.
  • The report concludes with a special focus on the vendor landscape and includes detailed profiles of the major vendors.

For the purpose of this report, transparent conductive films or TCFs are defined as thin films of optically transparent and electrically conductive material. TCFs consist of a transparent polymer-based substrate (50150 m thick) on which a thin layer of conductive material is applied (less than 100 nm thick). Conductive layers usually employ metal oxides (InO2:Sn, SnO2:F), silver nanofibers, metal meshes (copper, silver, gold), graphene, conductive polymers (PEDOT: PSS) or carbon nanotubes.

The report covers following stakeholders in the market -

  • Chemicals and high-performance material manufacturers.
  • Electronics and electronic materials manufacturers.
  • Nanomaterial and nanotechnology companies.
  • Diversified industrial manufacturing companies.

The report excludes companies that are not manufacturers (distributors, suppliers, etc.). Some of these companies may brand the product as their own and resell it. However, the report excludes those companies as well to avoid double counting revenue. Post-sale service providers are excluded from the scope of the report as well.

For large diversified manufacturers, the report only considers (through derivation and assumption wherever required) transparent conductive film revenue.
