ITO is widely used as the material for transparent electrodes in a diverse range of electronic devices. Demand in the ITO target industry increases by a certain ratio according to the size of display substrates and the amount of inputs.
Therefore, unless the price of indium fluctuates significantly, it is generally believed that there will be no significant issues in the industry except for the development of alternative materials. In some of these applications, however, new transparent electrode materials are beginning to replace ITO.
This report presents a market and technical forecast for ITO and replacements for LCD panels, plasma display panels (PDP), touch panels, e-paper, solar cells and organic electroluminescent (EL) panels.
