Design, characterization, production, and application of structures, devices, and systems by controlled manipulation of size and shape at the nanometer scale with at least one novel/superior characteristic or property is called nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is the science of building machines at a subatomic level. Nanowires made of crystalline silver with diameter in the tens of nanometers and a length in tens of micrometers are called silver nanowires. Silver is a transition metal in the periodic table of elements. It has an atomic number of 47 and an average atomic mass of 107.862. Its unique makeup of valence electrons is what makes it an ideal metal conductor of electricity.

High electrical conductivity, high surface area, and high aspect ratio are the properties that make silver nanowires attractive alternatives vis-à-vis their counterparts such as Indium Tin Oxide (ITO).
Display technologies that use silver nanowires are light in weight, flexible, thin, and rugged. Usage of silver nanowires is opening new horizons in the field of display technologies. Increase in demand for touchscreen products is driving the demand for new technologies. Governments of most countries in the world are focusing on increasing the usage of solar energy to meet the overall demand for energy. This motivates governments to draft encouraging policies for research and innovation in the field of solar technology, which is anticipated to propel the demand for silver nanowires.
