Company Summary

The $1.6B market for transparent conductors is dominated by ITO, Indium-Tin Oxide. While the performance of the material is considered adequate for use today, t is both an expensive material and has high cost of manufacture. Sinovia intends to become the replacement for ITO by providing a solution-processed material that not only outperforms ITO but can enable new products that cannot be served by ITO.
