    This report is the first edition of market research indium-tin oxide (ITO) and materials for its production in Russia and the world.

    Market monitoring conducted from August 2013.

    The purpose of research - analysis of the Russian and world markets ITO.

    Object of study is indium tin oxide and materials for its production - indium tin.

    This work is a desk study. As information sources, we used data of Institute of Industrial Technology Research Institute (Taiwan) analyst firm NPD DisplaySearch (USA), sectoral and regional press, annual and quarterly reports of companies, web-sites of company-producers of ITO, as well as data obtained from telephone interviews employees of companies-consumers of the product.

    The chronological scope of the study: 1999-2013; forecast - 2014-2020

    Study geography: Russian Federation and other countries of the world.


    The report consists of four parts, contains 107 pages, including 53 figures, 9 tables and 4 applications.

    In the first chapter of the report presents brief characteristics of the general properties of the material indium tin oxide (hereinafter - ITO), the properties of the compound and its components, the description of hazards and toxicity properties of ITO and applications, as well as indications of danger powder ITO.

    In the second chapter of the report presents information on a transparent conductive coatings and applications ITO. the basic characteristics of markets.

    The third chapter is devoted to the review of the aspects of the production of raw ITO. A description of the indium market. indium market in Russia and CIS, the forecast needs until 2020 and technological aspects indiya.Opisan market extraction of tin and tin mining world.

    The fourth chapter presents data on problems and vzmozhnostyah poentsialnyh substitutes ITO - graphene, its Istoiya and prospects.

    The Appendix presents data on manufacturers, suppliers (trading companies, traders) ITO, ITO consumers and current market prices ITO.

    Target audience research:

    - Market participants ITO - producers, consumers, traders;

    - Potential investors.
