Flexible Electronics Market

Flexible Electronics Market is driven by Increasing Demand for Lightweight and Durable Electronics

Flexible electronics provide several advantages over rigid electronics by making products lighter, more durable, and bendable or form fitting. Flexible electronics incorporate electronic devices and components onto flexible polymeric substrates or thin films instead of rigid, inorganic substrate, which enables the development of products that can be wrapped, folded, twisted, and rolled up. They have wide applications across sectors including automotive, consumer electronics, medical devices, and others due to their properties like flexibility, durability, lightweight, bendability, and form-fitting. The incorporation of bendable micro LED displays, solar panels, and bendable sensors in wearables, e-textiles, smart cards, and other appliances is increasing the demand for flexible electronics components in the market.

The global Flexible Electronics Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 30.71 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.6% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the flexible electronics market is the increasing focus on printed electronics technology. Printed electronics technology uses digital or analog printing processes for creating electronic circuits on various substrates such as paper, plastic, fabric, and other non-traditional and flexible materials. It has applications across various industries including automotive, consumer electronics, medical devices, packaging, and others. Properties such as lightweight, durability, flexibility, low material cost, large-area functionality, and overall environment-friendly nature make printed electronics important for manufacturing flexible electronic devices. Rising investments in printed electronics for developing low-cost and large-scale manufacturing technologies will support the growth of flexible electronics market over the forecast period.
