NanoMarkets, a leading
industry analyst firm based here, today announced a new report that continues
the firm's coverage of emerging printed electronics and sensor markets. The
report, "Large-Area and Printed Sensor Markets: 2009-2016" is scheduled
to release the week of October 19th, 2009. The firm is offering a pre-publication
rate on the report through Friday, October 16th. Details including a table of
contents and excerpt are available at www.nanomarkets.net.
About the Report:
The sensor market will take off rapidly in the next decade, driven by the needs
for better diagnostics for an aging population, environmental monitoring, national
security and military markets and in the not too distant future small scale
robotics. These are diverse applications areas, but one factor that they will
have in common will be the need for sensors that are distributed over large-area,
flexible substrates. In many cases, these large-area sensors will be created
in all or part with printing technology.
NanoMarkets believes that while some of the most exciting opportunities in
this sector lie in the future, there are already ways to tap into this emerging
market that can leverage existing technologies, materials, manufacturing approaches
and marketing channels into new business revenues. The objective of this report
is to identify just where these opportunities are.
Beginning with an analysis of the potential from existing printed sensor products
such as sensors with printed electrodes and diagnostic test strips and assays,
this new NanoMarkets report provides a roadmap and revenue forecast that will
point out where and how the money will be made on the way to fully functional
large-area sensor systems. This report will also show how new developments in
printed electronics, substrate materials and sensor materials will enable this
new kind of sensing system. It will g on to discuss the commercial implications
of current sensor trends from singlet devices such as gas sensors and pressure
sensors to complex layered subsystems such as smart noses, smart skins and labs
on a chip and how these new kinds of sensors represent a station on the way
to true wide-area sensors.
The report will provide a guide to where and when the demand will emerge for
wide area and printed sensors in the all key application sectors including military,
medical and genomics/proteomics, national security, pervasive computing, robotics,
transportation, smart packaging, smart buildings and environmental monitoring,
and consumer electronics. Finally, the report will discuss the latest R&D
developments in this field as well as the strategies of the firms that are commercializing
this new technology and where they are looking for first revenues.
NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging market opportunities in electronics
created by developments in advanced materials. For a full listing of the firm's
