According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026," the global indium tin oxide (ITO) market witnessed moderate growth during 2015-2020. Indium tin oxide (ITO) refers to a transparent and colorless solid that consists of tin oxide and indium oxide. It is deposited as a thin film on glass or clear plastic and functions as a transparent electrical conductor in a diverse range of electronic devices. Commonly obtained by the process of electron beam evaporation or sputter deposition, it is characterized by ultraviolet resistance, colorfastness and electromagnetic induction shielding. As a result, it finds extensive applications in the manufacturing of touch panels, gas sensors, liquid-crystal displays (LCDs), photovoltaic cells, heat reflective coatings, field emission displays and plasma displays.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
Global Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) Market Trends:
The global market is primarily driven by significant growth in the consumer electronics sector. There has been a considerable rise in the uptake of smart devices, such as tablets, smart TVs, laptops and smartphones, across the globe. Since ITO is extensively utilized as an essential component in the manufacturing of screens and touch panels in these devices, this is expected to providing an impetus to the market growth. This is further supported by the increasing proliferation of high-speed internet connection, inflating disposable income levels of the masses and their improving living standards. The market is also driven by the rising utilization of ITO by the automotive sector for the production of smart vehicles that are equipped with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Moreover, the governments of several countries are undertaking favorable initiatives to promote the adoption of solar panels and thin-film photovoltaic (PV) cells. ITO forms an indispensable component in the production of these cells and panels as its usage offers a higher light absorption rate at cost-efficient prices. Furthermore, extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key manufacturers to minimize the production costs of ITO are expected to create numerous growth opportunities in the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during 2021-2026.
