Transparent Conductor Market (OLED, Solar, Flexible Displays & LCD) Forecasts to 2021; RnRMarketResearch.com adds "Transparent Conductor Markets 2014-2021" to its store.
August 25, 2014
During the past year the transparent conductor (TCs) market has continued to evolve.  It seems that all the focus remains on the touch panel sector, where alternatives to ITO have genuinely established themselves. As a result, this latestreport in NanoMarkets' seven years of coverage of the transparent conductor market focuses heavily on the realities of the touch-sensor market for alternative TCs.  Acknowledging that this is where the money is for now, we also discuss how some industry estimates of touch opportunities appear to be exaggerated and how there are serious technology challenges for touch down the road - challenges such as gestural control - that could hurt the current TC boomlet. Photo -http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20140822/138909 We also examine what other big changes are appearing in the TC opportunity space.  The solar panel business is back, but with a new mix of PV technologies.  What will this mean for the TC space?  OLED lighting, which looked like might go into decline in our previous report, now looks like it is back on the board as a possible mass consumer of TCs.  At the same time some the great hopes for alternative TCs, such as OLED TVs and flexible displays seem increasingly fanciful and may be areas that alternative TC firms pursue at their peril.

  Sacramento, California (PRWEB) August 25, 2014         StreamSend, the email marketing service provider, shows agencies and marketers how to effectively reach customers on the go or at their desks with responsive email design. Responsive templates ensure that clients' emails display properly on all screen sizes, making them easy to view -- and engage with--regardless of where they are being viewed.           "Studies show that over 90% of the adult U.S. population owns a cell phone, and that most of those consumers use their smartphone more for reading emails than making calls," said Dan Forootan, president of StreamSend Email Marketing. "If marketers aren't optimizing their clients' emails for mobile devices like cell phones and tablets, they will be losing out to their competition in the battle for customers' attention. Here are a few best practices to keep in mind when designing responsive email templates for clients."     1. Start Small         When you start designing your clients' responsive email template, begin with the smallest screen first. This method is much easier than retrofitting a large desktop design to a mobile device. Try to visualize how the viewer will be reading the email from top to bottom, then plan out the most effective positions for your clients' content.
