 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....

Green Solvent and Bio-Solvents Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
A solvent is generally any liquid (could be solid or gas also), which has the capacity to dissolve a substance (solute) in it resulting in the formation of a solution. The solvent market has seen a rise in the last few years, which has caused high levels of toxic emission in the atmosphere. Traditional solvents emit VOC (volatile organic compounds) and are being increasingly used in paints, aerosol, and in other similar industries. With environmental regulations to lower the emissions of VOC and bio-solvents or green-solvents have seen a growth in the past few years. The...
Iron & Steel Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Iron is one of the most abundant elements on the earth and the widely used metal across various applications. It is commonly found in oxide form in its ores. Some of the ores of iron are magnetite, hematite, goethite, limonite and siderite. Hematite and magnetite are the iron rich ores (greater than 60% iron) and are used for extracting iron commercially. Iron can be classified, based on the carbon content, into three types, viz., pig iron, wrought iron and cast iron. Pig iron is the most commonly produced type. It is further converted into other types by further purification though...
Lignite Mining Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth And Forecast 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
The global market for lignite mining is influenced by the increased need for energy and the rising prices of various energy production resources. Also, with the development taking place in the economies such as India and China, the demand for energy will rise, thereby, increasing the price of energy and its resources. This rise in price tends to shift the interest of industries towards other resources of energy. Recently, countries such as Germany has stopped its nuclear power generation business and switched to other electricity generating resources. AWE AG, a German electric utility...
