Market Outlook
The global conductive inks market size was around USD 3.4 billion in 2019. The conductive inks market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5% over the forecast period of 2020-2025. The main driving factor for the growth of the industry is the increasing demand for effective and compact consumer electronics. Due to the elevated thermal conductivity and printability, the conductive silver ink, among other types, is widely used in different applications. However, because of the high cost and scarcity, manufacturers are finding alternatives for silver. Therefore, copper has been recognised as the alternative for silver inks due to its cheap price and high electrical conductivity. Further, the conductive inks containing polymeric conduction compounds provide an economical means for setting up contemporary conductive traces in comparison to conventional methods, like copper etching and copperplate substrates.
