Silver Inks and Pastes demand soars up to $2.8 bn in 2019
The thick-film segment consists of membrane switches, keyboards/keypads, capacitors, resistive heaters and electroluminescent wire (EL) lighting. This sector is expected to consume $2.8 billion in silver inks and pastes in 2019, compared with $2.0 billion today.
Silver makes bacteria susceptible to cell-busting properties
Hospital-borne infections are a threat to every patient, because the microbes are increasingly resistant to antibiotics. To help combat these dangerous microbes, especially life threatening ones like Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a staph infection found in hospitals, health care professionals are turning to silver imbedded in instruments, hip and back implants, fabrics and furniture. Silver kills many bacteria without allowing them to become resistant to its cell-busting properties.
