Flexible Electronics Market - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2018 – 2026

Category : Semiconductor and Electronics | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC752


Flexible electronics can be defined as a technology for assembling electronics circuits by mounting the electronic devices on a platform of flexible substrates such as PEEK (Polyether ether ketone), polyimide or transparent conductive polyester film. One property of flexible electronics which justifies to be highlighted is their sturdiness which makes a great difference for applications such as tablets, wearable’s, and other consumer electronics which traditionally feature glass-based displays. Integrating an unbreakable active plastic display can be achieved in flexible electronics. Flexible electronics have witnessed considerable growth in the last few years, ranging from the extensive applications in flexible OLED electronics and flexible solar cell arrays which are made-up on a plastic substrate. Their demand is stimulated by constant technological development in large-area of electronics. Flexible circuits are simpler to assimilate into the end product and also tend to be lesser in weight.

Market Dynamics

The growing awareness regarding the benefits of using flexible electronics in diverse applications is one of the key factors predictable to promote the growth of global market in near future. The rising use of thin-film solar modules and growing acceptance of wearable devices and smartphones are anticipated to drive the global market. Conversely, the existence of recognized substitute inflexible products is likely to act as a key factor restraining the global flexible electronics market. Additionally, the increasing need for improvements in terms of technology for a wider adoption is projected to grow at a substantial rate in near future. However, the increasing government support for renewable energy projects and lighting technologies are expected to tender promising opportunities for the market players.
