The global transparent conductive film market is anticipated to expand from 4.44 billion US$ in 2019 to 13.99 billion US$ by 2030 growing at a compound annual growth rate of 10.5% during the forecast period 2020-2030. Globalization and increasing disposable income of consumer in major consumption economies such as China and India has increased consumer spending on consumer electronic devices such as smartphones, notebooks, smart TVs, smart cars, and so on. The essential elements in many of these electronic equipment are transparent conductive films.
Transparent conducting films are thin, transparent and electrodynamic and are used in the production of various displays, touch pans and photovoltaic cells as transparent electrodes. In electronic devices, transparent conductive films have been used for four decades and have seen many technological advances in terms of the materials used. Nowadays, owing to the advantages offered by CNT and graphic materials, these materials are adopted by different manufacturers of Transparent Conductive Films. Furthermore, transparent conductive film are being widely used in the manufacture of solar panels and smart glass or electro-chromic glass for smart windows for harnessing solar energy.
High costs and complexity in manufacturing were the main reasons behind slow growth during last decade. Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) is the primary material used in the manufacturing of transparent conductive films. The production cost of ITO is significantly high along with coarse morphology compared to silicon semiconductors, thereby increasing the cost of transparent conductive films. This is anticipated to be a major factor impeding the growth of transparent conductive films market during the first half of the forecast period. However, the transparent conductive films market has witnessed rapid growth in recent years fuelled by technological advancements and adoption of advanced materials.
Alternative ITO material, such as CNT, and graphene, has changed the market scenario and offered numerous opportunities. Decreasing prices of smart phones, increasing adoption of touch enabled user interface devices, low consumption of power, reduced reflection, flexibility, thinness and robustness are some of the major aspects driving the growth of the global transparent conductive films market. Absence of one size fits all as well as availability of a lot of options for a particular application are some major elements deterring the growth of market.
The global transparent conductive film market has been segmented on the basis of technology, application and geography. Based on technology, the global transparent conductive film market has been sub-segmented into ITO on PET, ITO on Glass, Non ITO oxides, graphene silver nanowires and carbon nano tubes.
