and analyzes emerging market opportunities in electronics created by developments
in advanced materials, today announced a new report that continues the firm's
coverage of emerging electronic materials markets. The report, "Opportunities
for Nanosilicon: 2009 to 2016" is scheduled to release in September of
A companion report on printed silicon will also be released in September. The
reports may be obtained individually or as a set.
About the Report:
Nanocrystalline silicon materials have long been seen as having significant
advantages in both the electronics and solar industries because of their relatively
high electron mobility, absorption qualities and stability as well as the ease
with which they can be deposited. These materials seem to be well positioned
to provide some short-term performance improvements that could easily translate
into new business revenues. Nanocrystalline silicon also offers a means to easily
improve performance and scalability of computer memories without derailing the
silicon-based status quo.
Beyond that lies a promise of other opportunities, not just for nanocrystalline
silicon but also for silicon nanomaterials and nanostructures, especially quantum
dots. Besides solar and memory applications, other areas in which these advanced
materials have potential include thin-film transistors, lighting, and computing.
NanoMarkets was one of the first firms to recognize and analyze the potential
for nanoscale/nanoengineered silicon and we published a report on this topic
in 2007. This new report will analyze and quantify the "nanosilicon"
market in 2009 and beyond, showing how it is doing in the current difficult
economic situation and pointing to where the use of silicon nanomaterials and
structures can still produce profits. This report covers the whole range of
nanosilicon applications that are likely to yield significant market opportunities
in the next eight years. As with all NanoMarkets reports it includes an eight-year
forecast of revenues from silicon nanomaterials and nanostructures and a discussion
of the product/market strategies of the leading firms active in this space.
