REPORT SCOPE

INTRODUCTION

STUDY BACKGROUND

According to an article in Nature Nanotechnology, "traditional [electronic] materials have been pushed to their limits, which means that entirely new materials...and new device structures are required. These materials and structures will probably allow MOS devices to remain competitive for at least another 10 years. Beyond this time frame, entirely new device structures (such as nanowire or molecular devices) and computational paradigms will almost certainly be needed to improve performance" (Vogel, 2007).

The 2011 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) identifies a set of applications that will require new materials with significantly improved properties to meet future technology requirements, enable increased density of devices and increase energy efficiency for computing and reliability. Based on these requirements, the ITRS identifies a number of emerging materials that have properties that could potentially meet these requirements, including III-V compounds, Ge, low-dimensional materials (e.g., carbon nanotubes [CNTs], nanowires, graphitic systems, nanoparticles), macromolecules, self-directed assembled materials, spin materials, complex metal oxides and selected interfaces.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

The goal of this report is to survey emerging electronic materials technologies and applications, identify those that are most likely to achieve significant commercial sales in the next five to 10 years and develop quantitative estimates of potential sales. The report generally avoids futuristic speculation about technology applications that might be possible more than 10 years into the future, focusing instead on applications that are expected make it to market by 2021.

The report's specific objectives support this broad goal. These objectives include identifying the new electronics materials with the greatest commercial potential in the 2011 to 2021 time frame, identifying market drivers, evaluating obstacles to their successful commercialization and projecting their future sales.

INTENDED AUDIENCE

This report is intended for marketing executives, entrepreneurs, investors, venture capitalists and other readers with a need to know where the electronic materials field is headed over the next five to 10 years

SCOPE AND FORMAT

The report addresses the global market for new electronic materials during the period from 2011 through 2021. Electronic materials are those that are used to affect the electrons or their associated fields in a desired manner consistent with the intended function of the electronic system. Other materials used in electronic devices, such as thermal management or packaging materials, are not covered in this report. New electronic materials are those that are not yet in widespread commercial use or are still under development, such as:

  • Graphene.
  • Quantum dots.
  • Photonic crystals.
  • Carbon nanotubes.
  • Superconductors.
  • Nanowires.
  • Conducting and semiconducting polymers.
  • Phase change materials.
  • Molybdenite.

The report format includes the following major elements:

  • Executive summary.
  • Definitions and key concepts.
  • New materials.
  • Major applications.
  • Market drivers.
  • Global trends in the market for new electronic materials by type of material and application (2010 - 2021).
  • Patent analysis.
  • Company profiles.

INFORMATION SOURCES AND METHODOLOGY

The findings and conclusions of this report are based on information gathered from industry sources, including manufacturers and users of new electronic materials. Interview data were combined with information gathered through an extensive review of secondary sources such as trade publications, trade associations, company literature and on-line databases.

BCC chose 2010 as the base year because at the time the report was prepared (i.e., in early 2012), complete year-end data for 2011 were not available from all sources. With 2010 as a baseline, market projections were developed for the years 2011 to 2016. These projections are based on a combination of a consensus among the primary contacts combined with an understanding of the key market drivers and their impact from a historical and analytical perspective. The analytical methodologies used to generate the market estimates are described in detail in along with the market projections.
