 This is the latest in NanoMarkets’ ongoing series of industry analysis reports on silver inks and pastes.  In this report we analyze how the changes within the applications for silver inks and pastes have impacted the business and what this means over the coming years. 
   
 On the positive side, the solar panel industry is reviving and is much more oriented toward crystalline silicon (c-Si) panels than before the great solar crash.  This is good news for the silver pastes business, because c-Si panels are major consumes of silver.  Silver inks and pastes suppliers also have some reason to be hopeful about the likelihood of large OLED lighting and displays panels finally being commercialized, since silver undoubtedly has a role to play in OLED electrodes....
