Nissha partners with C3Nano

May 8, 2015

Today, Nissha and C3Nano announced they are partnering to develop silver nanowire type transparent conductor for touch sensor applications.

Touch Display Research had a chance to talk to C3Nano’s CEO, Mr. Cliff Morris recently. He indicated being selected by Nissha as a development partner validates C3nano’s position as a performance leader in TCFs.

Our survey found that the adoption of silver nanowire and metal mesh are accelerating. In the newly published ITO-replacement 2015 report, Touch Display Research forecast ITO-replacement market will grow to 10.9 Billion by 2022.

There are 25 companies and research institutes working on silver nanowire transparent conductor currently. Nissha is actually part of another joint venture with Cambrios and TPK on silver nanowire since 2013.  More analysis can be found in the Touch and Emerging Display monthly report, May 2015 issue.

TPK, Cambrios and NISSHA Expand Joint Venture

October 4, 2013

On October 3rd, Cambrios, TPK and NISSHA signed the expansion of joint venture– TPK Film Solution.

Back in August, in our “Touch and Emerging Display” monthly report, we’ve reported that TPK will produce silver nanowire type film touch panel by end of this year.

The interesting thing of yesterday’s news is that NISSHA also joined it. NISSHA has been producing ITO film touch panel before.

ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) is currently the mainstream transparent conductor. However, due to its high cost, long process and fragility, non-ITO type transparent conductors are gaining momentum.

Over 180 companies and research institutes are working on ITO replacement in 2013. Sixteen companies and research institutes are working on silver nanowire. Metal mesh, carbon nanotube, conductive polymer and graphene are also popular ITO-replacement transparent conductors.

What is the market size and forecast for ITO replacement transparent conductors?  What’s the price of transparent conductive film? Which transparent conductor is suitable for which application? Which direction should you invest in non-ITO transparent conductors?
