Recent Developments

  • On March 21, 2022, DuPont (NYSE:DD) Microcircuit and Component Materials (MCM) business announced the launch of new Silver/Silver Chloride (Ag/AgCl) conductive ink/paste for health care applications. The 5881 Silver/Silver Chloride conductive paste is used in the health care field to meet the increased needs of doctors and patients that utilize these devices every day by helping them provide confidence in real time information on the health of the patient.
  • On September 9, 2020, Nanotech Energy Inc., a manufacturer of the purest graphene, announced it had developed and scaled a process for the production of graphene with more than 90% of its content being monolayers, the purest form of graphene available in mass production quantities. Nanotech plans to install two graphene product lines to address the market need for graphene sheets with low oxygen content. The first product line is expected to contain an oxygen content of nearly 13%-15%, while the second product line is likely to contain just 3% oxygen content.
  • On May 29, 2020, Creative Materials Inc., based in Ayer, Massachusetts, the U.S., introduced a new gold conductive ink, coating, and adhesive. This substance adheres well to smooth high-energy surfaces such as polyimide, polyester, and glass. Unlike traditional gold inks, CMI’s 128-24 provides excellent coverage at a moderate cost. Working electrodes, transdermal medication delivery, electrochemical sensors, tens electrodes, and muscle stimulation devices are some of its applications. When smooth surfaces or fine features are not required, the substance is helpful in printing non-oxidizing gold electrodes.

Research Methodology is the process used to collect information and data for the purpose of making business decisions. The success of a research project is entirely dependent on the research methodology adopted by the company. Research Methodology and Scope We have implemented a mix of primary and secondary research for our market estimate and forecast. Secondary research formed the initial phase of our study, where we conducted extensive data mining, referring to verified data sources such as independent studies, company annual reports, white papers, case studies, government and regulatory published articles, technical journals, magazines, and paid data sources. It was also used to obtain important information about the key players and market classification & segmentation according to industry trends to the bottom-most level, and key developments related to market and technology perspectives. A database of the key industry leaders was also prepared using secondary research.

In the primary research process, various primary sources from both supply and demand sides have been interviewed to obtain qualitative and quantitative information important for respective regions. The primary sources from the supply side included industry experts such as CEOs, VPs, marketing directors, technology and innovation directors, and related executives from key companies and organizations operating in the respective regions. The primary data has been collected through questionnaires, e-mails, and telephonic interviews, end-user surveys, consumer surveys, technology distributors and wholesaler’s surveys.

  • Quantitative methods (e.g. surveys) are best for measuring, ranking, categorizing, identifying patterns and making generalizations
  • Qualitative methods (e.g. interviews) are best for describing, interpreting, contextualizing, and gaining in-depth insight into specific concepts or phenomena
  • Mixed methods allow for a combination of numerical measurement and in-depth exploration.

Market drivers and restraints, along with their current and expected impacts, technological scenario and expected developments, end-use industry trends and dynamics  and consumer behavior trends  these forecasting parameters were considered.

Ethical approach, attention to detail, consistency, latest trend in the market and highly authentic source these are benefits of company’s research methodology.
