Technavio has announced the top seven leading vendors in their recent global transparent conductive films market report until 2021. This research report also lists seven other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.
Transparent conductive films are prerequisites for manufacturing display and touchscreen panels for consumer electronics. Consecutively, the growth of the global transparent conductive films market is directly proportional to the growth in unit shipments of TVs, smartphones, monitors, laptops, tablets, and smartwatches. The advent of IoT and increasing penetration of touchscreen interface also boost the sales of aftermarket automotive displays.
Competitive vendor landscape
The global transparent conductive films market is a highly fragmented market with the presence of a large number of both global and regional vendors. The leading vendors in the market are 3M, Cambrios Technologies, Canatu, DuPont, Kodak, Nitto Denko, and TOYOBO. A large share of the revenue of the leading vendors is generated from APAC due to the high demand for consumer electronics from the region.
Chetan Mohan, an industry expert at Technavio for research on embedded systems, says, “Companies need transparent conductive films for manufacturing display and touch panels for consumer electronics. These companies can directly procure transparent conductive films from manufacturers or via dealers and exporters. APAC is home to the largest population of transparent conductive film manufacturers with a large number of regional vendors.”
