announced that it has added a new report to its schedule titled, "Opportunities
in Carbon-Based Inks, Pastes, and Coatings for Electronics Applications: 2010
to 2017." The report will be released in early February 2010 and continues NanoMarkets
coverage of opportunities in advanced materials in emerging electronics and
energy markets. For additional details about the report please visit the firm's

About the Report:
For decades, carbon inks, pastes and coatings have generated substantial revenues
in the electronics industry from applications as diverse as membrane switch
electrodes to EMI/RFI shielding. In recent years, however, this rather traditional
part of the electronic materials market has seen new business opportunities
emerge as carbon nanotubes have entered the market. In the not-too-distant future,
graphene formulations also have the opportunity to revolutionize the market.
Some of the first high-volume applications of carbon nanotubes and graphene
will be to boost the performance of conventional products for equally mature
applications. But carbon nanotubes and graphene also enable some completely
new applications -- such as nanotube-based transparent conductors for the display
industry and nanotube-enhanced supercapacitors for the coming "smart"
This report contains NanoMarkets' in-depth analysis and forecasts for carbon
inks, pastes, and coatings for electronics applications. While the replacement
of silicon with carbon nanotubes and graphene lies far in the future, the use
of these materials in conductive coatings and as an enhancement for currently-used
carbon materials is very much a near-term opportunity. This report is essential
reading for marketing executives and business development managers in the coatings,
function inks and nanomaterials businesses, as well as those planning the future
of electronic devices.
