Growth Sectors for Conductive Inks as They Solve More Problems

Growth Sectors for Conductive Inks as They Solve More Problems

In 2020 the market for conductive inks will be $2.4Bn, according to extensive research by IDTechEx. Of that, 95% of the conductive ink supply by value goes into just three applications. However, for years now there has been work on a myriad of new applications for conductive ink, in this article we assess some of those opportunities.

3D Printed Microscaffold Cochlear Implant

3D Printed Microscaffold Cochlear Implant

Scientists developed a 3D-microscaffold cochlear implant for steroid elution. For the first time, scientists combined a highly precise, porous 3D printed steroid reservoir with a 2D MEMS-based electrode array to fabricate a novel cochlear implant. This implant is designed to reduce the damage of residual hearing against electrode insertion trauma.
