Attention All Semiconductor Firms Seeking to Gain Insight into How Thin-Film Technology is Enabling Next-Generation Chips
The latest thin film technology is creating new revenue opportunities for the electronics and semiconductor industries. The most exciting of these opportunities is "large area electronics," which addresses novel applications in displays, photovoltaics, lighting, sensor arrays and other markets where there are benefits to creating circuitry over areas measured in terms of several square feet. At the other end of the scale, thin film technology is critical to the prospects for extending CMOS chips to smaller nodes as well as to creating new kinds of memory and storage devices. Additional opportunities for thin-film technologies in batteries, imaging and military/aerospace are also emerging.
This report analyzes and quantifies all these segments and shows that there are considerable synergies between them, creating paths for firms in one thin-film enabled segment to diversify into another. The report also examines the latest generation of production technology for thin film (including atomic layer deposition, ink-jet and self-assembly), as well as how nanotechnology is creating new kinds of thin film materials for use in electronics. In addition, this new report offering identifies today's main players in thin-film electronics and provides eight-year forecasts of all thin film electronics applications.
The core focus of this report will be to quantify and analyze the impact of these technology trends, and to discuss their consequences. It will be vital reading for firms in the display business seeking to broaden their product range into new areas of large area electronics and for other electronics firms who need to understand how the budding area of large area electronics will produce new revenues for them. Others that will benefit from this report will be semiconductor firms seeking to gain insight into how thin-film technology is enabling next-generation chips; disk drive and memory firms with an interest in how the latest TF materials are improving the prospects for information storage and energy companies examining some of the latest directions for batteries and photovoltaics.
