NanoMarkets Unveils New White Paper Regarding Low-Cost Sensors » read source
NanoMarkets, an industry analyst firm has just issued a new white paper titled Pushing Low-Cost Sensors to Market. The paper was drawn from a previously issued report that addressed the opportunities for printed and organic electronics firms interested in the sensor market. According to the paper, while sensors are not the first product segment considered for printed and organic electronics they represent an important area for manufacturers because, unlike displays and RFID, this segment of electronic devices is underserved by existing manufacturers.
The paper discusses how sensors using organic and/or printed electronics are poised to surpass $220 million in revenues in 2008 and will exceed the $1 billion mark in 2013. NanoMarkets expects that the ability to print large sensor arrays on flexible substrates will find particular favor in a number of sensor segments; in architecture and construction, protective clothing and military uniforms, smart labels and packaging, robotics, aerospace, the automotive industry and most certainly in medical devices and homeland security.
NanoMarkets' related report Printed and Organic Sensor Markets: 2007-2015 provides a complete analysis of the commercial opportunities for sensors that utilize printed and organic electronics. Applications covered include biomedical and genetic applications, homeland security, environmental sensing, robotics, pervasive computing, smart packaging and smart textiles.
The report also includes detailed volume and value forecasts of these markets as well as strategic profiles of leading firms developing and marketing this emerging technology including Acrongenomics, Affymetrix, Agilent, Alpha MOS, AromaScan, BioDot, Bio Sensor Technologies, Cypak, Drop Sens EcoBioServices, Gas Sensor Solutions, GeSiM Infotonics, MeadWestvaco, Molecular Vision, Nokia, Novartis, Ohmcraft, Osmatech, Pearson Matthews, Peratech, PerkinElmer, Sensible Solutions, Smiths Detection, Stora Enso, TagMaster, Tekscan, Yubico, Zyomyx and Windsor Scientific.
