Research and Markets: Global and Chinese ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) Sputtering Targets Industry Report 2015

September 8, 2015
By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global and Chinese ITO Sputtering Targets Industry Report, 2014-2017” report to their offering.

As one of the crucial materials in the field of electronic information, ITO (indium tin oxide) sputtering targets get chiefly utilized to manufacture flat LCD, touch screens, thin film transistors, transparent electrodes of solar cells and multifunctional glass.

With the prevalence of smart phones, tablet PCs and other mobile terminals, the global demand for ITO sputtering targets continues to increase, hitting about 1,950 tons in 2014, of which China accounted for about 36%. In 2017, the global demand will approximate 2,700 tons.

Although with its huge demand for ITO sputtering targets, China’s output was as low as 90 tons in 2014. The ITO sputtering target technology has been mastered by a few companies in Japan and South Korea, while Chinese enterprises have been developing slowly in independent R & D.

Subject to technical constraints, the ITO sputtering targets made in China mainly target at the low-end market; whereas, the ITO sputtering targets used for high-end TFT-LCD and touch screens are almost all imported from Japan and South Korea.

In view of this, Chinese enterprises over recent years have accelerated R & D and introduction of the ITO sputtering target technology, and launched a number of high-end ITO sputtering target localization projects.
