NanoMarkets Announces Upcoming Report Addressing Market for Use of Silver in Photovoltaics Markets

GLEN ALLEN, VA--(Marketwire - September 3, 2010) -  Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets today announced the addition of the report, "Silver in Photovoltaics, 2010" to its schedule. The report will be available the week of September 13th. Details about the report including a table of contents and an excerpt are available at The report continues the firm's industry leading coverage of the market opportunities arising from advanced materials and emerging energy and electronics markets.

About the Report:

In this report NanoMarkets identifies and quantifies the opportunities for silver and silver products in the rapidly changing photovoltaics (PV) industry. The report considers silver inks and pastes and various hybrid materials that are used in PV; materials such as transparent conductive silver-containing composites.

With the end of the silicon shortage, crystalline silicon, for which silver is the dominant electrode material, seems less threatened by thin film PV (TFPV) than it did a year or so back. How good is this news for silver? TFPV, in its various forms, is still expected to gain share in the PV market and has yet to firm up on the electrode materials that it will use going forward. As TFPV technologies mature, will silver be a winner or loser?

This report answers these questions and many more. It also examines the potential revenues for silver in PV in the light of NanoMarkets' revised PV projections given the current economic situation and prospects for renewable energy worldwide.
