FARMINGTON, Conn., Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Superconductivity is a unique and powerful tool in scientific research that has led to important strides in health care, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Other superconducting technologies on the cusp of commercialization will increase the efficiency with which electricity is produced and used, which will indirectly benefit the environment. In the future, superconducting technologies may be used to predict earthquakes, map the magnetic fields produced by the brain, and produce ultrahigh-performance computers.
Global Information Inc (GII) announces the immediate availability of three new significant market research reports highlighting the global markets for superconductors, compound semiconductors, and transparent conductors.
Superconductors: Technologies and Global Markets
The global market for superconductor technologies was valued at nearly $1.7 billion in 2011 and should reach $1.8 billion in 2012. Total market value is expected to reach $3.3 billion in 2017 after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.6%.
Magnets are expected to have a value of nearly $1.8 billion in 2012 and $2.3 billion in 2017, a CAGR of 5.2%. Electrical equipment should total $26.9 million in 2012 and $920.1 million in 2017, a CAGR of 102.7%.
The objectives of this report include: Identifying superconducting applications with the greatest commercial potential in the near term to midterm (2011 to 2017); Analyzing the key drivers and constraints that will shape the market for these superconducting applications as the basis for projecting demand over the next five years; Estimating current and future consumption of superconducting materials and other key enabling technologies; and Identifying the companies that are best positioned to meet this demand because of their proprietary technologies, strategic alliances, or other advantages.

Global Markets and Technologies for Compound Semiconductors
Global sales from compound semiconductor components totaled nearly $25.5 billion in 2011 and should surpass $27 billion in 2012. Total sales are expected to reach nearly $47.5 billion in 2017 after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.9%.
Regional Trends: the Americas are expected to have sales worth nearly $5.2 billion in 2012 and $8.8 billion in 2017, a CAGR of 11.4%. EMEA should have sales totaling nearly $8.5 billion in 2012 and nearly $16.4 billion in 2017, a CAGR of 14%.
This report measures and forecasts the global market size for compound semiconductor - based components in value (dollar sales) and volume (shipment sales) terms. The report breaks down the global compound semiconductor component market along the following individual components in value and volume terms: lasers and optical components; LEDs; radio frequency (RF) front end and power amplifier chipsets; and solar/ photovoltaic (PV) panels and cells. Analysis is provided for the stakeholder landscape and the patenting activity involving compound semiconductor components.

Transparent Conductor Markets – 2012
NanoMarkets believes that the next few years will be a turning point for the transparent conductor (TC) business. There will be opportunities for novel TCs where, for the first time, newer materials have unquestionable market advantages over ITO. This report provides the necessary strategic insight into how TC firms can best generate new business revenues from the rapidly changing business environment in the display and solar panel sectors. It also provides insight into niche applications such as smart windows, BIPV, etc.
