This report considers market conditions and opportunities in regional areas around the globe. The report also considers the potential new high margins coatings applications that will emerge in the next five years.
Optical coatings are used in any application in which the amount of wavelength of light must be precisely realized. Coatings determine which wavelengths of light are transmitted or reflected, which determines the resolution and quality of any display or projected image.
This report provides a standard five-year planning cycle and revenue estimates through 2016. It defines product segments for optical coating technology categories, analyzes technology options, and determines current application markets as well as likely future opportunities. Additionally, this report defines and graphically analyzes these optical coating markets from many perspectives, categorizes and profiles the companies involved, defines unique nomenclature, and details policy organizations, conferences, authors and consortiums.REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY Optical technology in many application markets represents the next level of technological advancement. Any component that influences the path of the light signal will be coated. Optical communications are orders of magnitude faster than electronics; as the amount of video and interaction increases on the Internet, the need for maximum speed, possible only with optical technology, will increase.
Flat screens for television, cell phones, computers and other displays will continue to grow in size and application. Touch screen technology will also become more ubiquitous. Optical components and coatings are critical in flat panel and screens.
In the medical and defense markets, the desire to be able to monitor and act remotely requires optics and optical coatings. In the medical market, optical fiber and associated technology permit physicians
