This 240 page report from Future Markets, Inc. covers the raft of applications and end products enabled by nanotechnology and nanomaterials in the electronics sector. Semiconducting inorganic nanowires, nanotubes and nanofibers have been extensively explored in recent years as potential building blocks for nanoscale electronics, optoelectronics, chemical/biological/optical sensing, and energy harvesting, storage and conversion, etc.
A number of electronic products manufactured with nanomaterials are already commercially available and more are coming onto the market in 2014, especially in consumer electronics. Liquid repellent, thermal, conductive, magnetic and anti-corrosive nanocoatings have been applied inside and outside electronic devices. Graphene, carbon nanotubes, silver nanoparticles and nanowires and quantum dots are finding their way into the displays and touchscreens markets.
Indium tin oxide (ITO) replacement is a key theme among product development. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphene may allow for the replacement of existing electrically conductive that are in short supply, expensive and limited in their use with flexible substrates. There is also an increased focus on 2-D materials in electronics.
Micro- and nanoelectronics underpin a significant part of the global economy. The global turnover of the sector was $310 billion in 2012. The value of products comprising micro- and nanoelectronics components represent around $215 billion of value globally.
