Conductive Inks Market Size, Trends & Forecast (2021 - 2026)

The global Conductive Inks Market size is estimated to rise from USD 4.65 billion in 2021 to USD 5.86 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 6.1% over the calculated period. 

Conductive inks are considered as electrically conductive printable inks that can be used in printed electronics and show the features of furrowed resistance and flexibility. These majorly have metallic particle-like silver and copper to initiate the flow of electric current through the circuitry. Besides, nanoparticle-based conductive inks are the leading segment in the worldwide industry. These kinds of inks offer high conductive properties and nano dimension control of size, shape, and particle dispensation. Nanoparticle-based conductive inks can be personalized on the basis of the printing substrate and printing technology employed.

Conductive Inks Market Size

The conductive inks are cheaper than the conventional procedures but are still costly and less hard on unstable bases like printed paper and plastic sheets. It may pose a barrier to the expansion of the conductive inks industry size in the future. Technological developments in the healthcare and medical equipment making industry are leading to the enhancement of equipment functionality and accuracy of the devices. Customer goods is a major application industry of conductive inks, for instance, smart packaging that contributes highly to industry expansion.
