Conductive inks may be defined as electrically conductive, printable inks that are widely used in printed electronic industry in order to produce printed circuits, RFID tags, organic light emitting diodes and battery test stripes, among others. It is generally created by infusing graphite or other conductive materials into ink. These inks are mainly comprised of metallic particles such as copper and silver along with other conductive components such as carbon and graphite.

In addition, conductive inks are flexible, lightweight and have lower costs, making them highly suitable for diverse applications. Resins are used to disperse the conductive particles so as to provide the mechanical & adhesive properties. Further, solvents are added in order to dissolve the resins as well as to control the rheological properties of the ink. Also, conductive inks are increasingly being used as an alternate for traditional wire circuits due to better energy efficiency and durability.

Silver based conductive inks accounted for the major share of the market as they are flexible, offer excellent conductivity and thermal stability. Further, nanoparticles based conductive ink is an emerging technology owing to its high conductive properties along with nano dimension control of shape, size and particle distribution. Moreover, these inks can also be customized according to the printing substrate & technology used.

However, volatility in the prices of silver is likely to hinder the market growth over the forecast period. As a result, research and development activities are underway in order to develop cheaper raw materials with similar properties.
