New Market Research on Thin-Film and Printed Batteries

GLEN ALLEN, VA /PRNewswire/ -- NanoMarkets, an industry analyst firm, has issued a new white paper titled "Thin-Film and Printed Batteries: On-Board Solutions for Low-Power Electronics." The paper is drawn from a NanoMarkets report that analyzed and forecasted the market for thin-film and printed batteries.

About the Paper
"Thin-Film and Printed Batteries: On-Board Solutions for Low-Power Electronics" discusses the value propositions emerging from the thin-film and printed battery area. These interesting devices are relatively expensive when compared with conventional miniature batteries and so must find unique applications where their characteristics can overcome the price challenge. In this paper, we examine applications for these batteries in radio frequency identification (RFID) and smart packaging, sensors, medical and cosmetic devices, smartcards and access cards, and point-of-purchase displays. We also consider how printability on a flexible substrate could open up markets for batteries and look at performance and safety considerations.

About the Report
"Thin-Film and Printed Battery Markets" quantifies the opportunities for next-generation batteries and includes a detailed eight-year forecast in both volume and value terms, broken out by battery chemistry and by application. The report discusses in depth the new materials and manufacturing technologies that will be brought to bear on the creation of thin-film batteries. It also provides analysis of the technical and market needs of the many application areas in which these batteries may be used, as well as profiles of all the leading manufacturers of thin-film and printable batteries that focus on each firm's product and marketing strategy and how they are funding their business expansion.
