NanoMarkets Announces Webinar Titled "ITO Market Opportunities"

NanoMarkets, a leading industry analyst firm based here, today announced that it will be conducting a webinar titled, ITO Market Opportunities that will take place on June 16th, 2009 at 10:00 AM EDT (GMT -4:00). Details of the event follow below. Persons interested in registering for the event may do so on the NanoMarkets website at An early registration rate is being offered through June 9th.

This Webinar presents NanoMarkets latest perspectives on the ITO market and the entire transparent conductor business. A lot has changed in this market since 2008. Indium prices are down, and the display industry has been damaged by the worldwide recession. OLED lighting and thin-film photovoltaics, two applications areas that are expected to consume considerable amounts of transparent conductive material have seen considerable commercial progress. And one of the products that has gained the most attention from transparent conductive coating firms -- touch-screen displays -- has begun to see a shift from resistive to capacitive technology. Also on the technical side, new techniques for creating ITO layers, such as powder coating, have come into play and latest candidates for ITO replacement have seen further testing in the marketplace.

The Webinar will provide NanoMarkets guidance on where the opportunities will be found in the ITO/transparent conductor business in the next few years. It will be based on NanoMarkets' recent report, "Indium Tin Oxide and Alternative Transparent Conductor Markets" on this topic and will include some of the forecasts from that report

Some of the items addressed in this webinar include:

  • Transparent conductor markets in the recession: Are there still opportunities?
  • Printed ITO, powder coating, sol-gel and other manufacturing innovations
  • Emerging applications for ITO in conductive and optical coatings
  • TCOs, polymers and nanomaterials: a sanity check on ITO alternatives
  • Touch screens and transparent conductors: new opportunities in an era of capacitive display technology
  • The future of transparent conductors in the solar and lighting markets

This Webinar provides a thorough guide to the opportunities that NanoMarkets believes are emerging in the ITO and alternative transparent conductor space.

A recording of the event with presentation materials will also be made available on CD ROM.
