Nano silver substitution trend is irreversible
Infrared to be replaced first by nanowires
Due to the rapid growth of the display industry, as well the high processing costs of ITO films and the limited indium resources, the industry is looking for alternatives. This includes nanowires. Silver nanowires, among other alternatives, are the most advantageous due to their technology and maturity. Additionally, they are flexible and can be used to replace other materials that conduct electricity with flexible displays of east winds.
Nanosilver has the most important role in Nanosilver. Nanosilver wire is safe, non-polluting, and antibacterial.
"With the present process, silver nanowires are first to be used on a large scale as an alternative for infrared touchscreen technology. Du said, "The substitute is already obvious." "The large-size products made of silver nanowires are gaining customers' recognition.
Infrared is the main touch control technology used in electronic whiteboards. Infrared transmitter tube and receiving tube is arranged on the raised border so that infrared optical networks are formed.
The next big flashpoint is 2020
The global smartphone market, with its huge population, has slowed down. However, the small and mid-sized markets will be essential for silver nanowires' mainstream adoption.
The slowdown in global smartphone growth provides an opportunity for silver-nanowires to replace ITO films. ""Whether it is facial recognition, a full-screen, or the hot feature of AI, the smartphone market needs revolutionary innovation," du explained.For the moment, foldable phones make sense. As screens get bigger, they become more difficult to handle.
The last step to breaking through the nanowire
The technology of silver microwires is not widely used. The production, manufacture, storage, and patent of the silver nanowires is considered to be an important factor that limits their development.
It is not possible to replace ITO conductive film with silver nanowires. Future application scenarios will offer the biggest opportunities.
