Major electronics OEMs like Samsung, Lenovo, Karbonn, NEC, Toshiba and LG have shipped products ranging from mobile phones to large-area monitors using silver nanowires. Many others are in development or in the pipeline but not yet public. The switch is on by companies in both the consumer and industrial sectors, driven by product improvements and manufacturing cost benefits.

Technologies that are synergistic with silver nanowires are providing opportunities to explore new applications. Flexible displays have great potential and are enabling many cutting-edge devices. Coming wearables include items similar to Google Glass, wrist-watches, sensor straps, fitness monitors are all waiting to be re-invented with improved style, resolution and durability, as well as reduced power consumption and weight. Consider how bike helmets, jackets and even the bikes themselves using flexible displays could be transformed to offer never-before-seen unique features and benefits.

Beyond consumer electronics, new display technologies will address things like the automotive sector, large area signage, architectural windows and indoor video walls.

Looking at silver nanowire technology from the opposite direction, it can also be applied in myriad ways to generate light and power as well as consuming it, but that's a whole different story for another day.
