DUBLIN, Ireland, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/cm58v6/functional) has announced the addition of the "Concise Analysis of the International Functional Printing Market - Forecasts to 2020" report to their offering.

Functional printing is a production process that deposits a functional material in a controlled and selective pattern upon a material. It holds a major potential to enable the next wave in high volume electronic production. The existing printing technologies are not only used for printing graphics but, also, have extended their application for printing electronic components and are, hence, used for functional printing. It is used for a number of novel applications like photovoltaic, OLED displays, sensors, RFID, batteries, and OLED lighting.

The report provides the dynamics of the market along with comprehensive forecasts of revenue with regards to technology, materials, applications, coating, and geography. The functional printing technologies are classified into inkjet, screen printing, gravure, flexography, and others. The material section is further segmented into substrates and ink; and substrates section includes glass, plastic, and paper; and ink has been segmented into conductive inks, dielectric ink, graphene inks, and so on. Applications of functional printing include sensors, displays, batteries, RFID tags, lighting, photovoltaic, medical, and others. This report covers geographical regions which include North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World.

The major factor fuelling the growth of the market, currently, is the fact that it is a low cost manufacturing process. The conventional high-volume-low-cost printing techniques enable the production of lightweight and robust electronic components at a lower cost; and this printing process does not involve etching, metalizing, and copper plating, thus eliminating the wastewater treatment. The stability of the ink for drop formation, the viscosity that must be suitable for the print heads and the ink interaction with the substrate is taken into account while printing. These are the major factors inhibiting the growth of the market.

The market has been witnessing the convergence of several industry sectors such as printing, materials (substrate, inks, and chemicals), and electronics; which facilitate the development of new products. The major companies into the functional printing market are GSI technologies (U.S.), Eastman Kodak Company (U.S.), Mark Andy Inc (U.S.), Toppan Printing Co.Ltd (Japan), BASF SE (Germany), DuPont (U.S.), KovioInc (U.S.), Toya Ink International Corp (U.S.), Vorbeck Materials (U.S.), Haiku Tech (U.S.), Xaar (U.K.), Avery Dennison (U.S.), Blue spark Technologies Inc (U.S.), Universal Display Corporation (U.S.), and others.
