Deployment of LEDs in the commercial as well as outdoor applications is also rising, especially for linear LEDs. Extensive use of silver nanowires in fabricating LED devices is set to positively drive silver nanowires market outlook.

Fueled by recent advances in technology and R&D, several silver nanowire-based products have already been unveiled for research and through prototype ideas. One of the most innovative applications is in the wearable electronics segment on account of excellent optical, mechanical an electrical characteristics. Wearable electronics worldwide are facing surging demand and estimates suggest that wrist wearables alone will register 100 million sold units by the end of 2019, while all other wearable electronics will touch 7.3 million units. Growing popularity of wearable electronics will rapidly increase demand for the material, in turn propelling silver nanowires industry share.

Owing to extensive applications in optic and electronics sector in relation to anti-microbial nature, efficiency and low toxicity, silver nanowires industry is poised to accrue remarkable gains. Increased utilization in chemical, photovoltaic and biotech sensors on account of exceptional optical, thermal and electric characteristics will bolster the product penetration. Global Market Insights, Inc. estimates that silver nanowires market size will exceed the USD 1.5 billion mark by 2025.
