Development of equipment and materials will contribute to and benefit from the growth of displays, lighting, IoT and sensors applications.
Market for Equipment & Materials for Printed & Flexible Electronics to reach US$1.6B by 2020
Flexible Electronics using printing processes is a new field of technologies with great expectations in terms of market and business. Many different applications can be addressed such as flexible displays, conformable lighting, flexible photovoltaics, smart sensors, systems on foil …
We believe that, in the next several years, the market and number of applications using printing processes for flexible electronics applications will grow, driven by lower processing costs, higher performance, better shock resistance and new functionalities. It is expected that mainly large companies such as Samsung or LG Chem will strongly contribute to the growth. We also believe that flexible & printed electronics have the potential to support the quick development of the Internet Of Things.
However, to be successful, these technologies have to face material and processing challenges.
Joint Daydream / Yole Développement webcast will first review the applications and 2013-2020 market forecasts for printed & flexible electronics. Examples will be shown with a critical review of challenges for some applications.
The second part of our webcast will be focused on equipment and material challenge. We will give forecasts in units and value for tools and chemistry. Perspectives and examples of cost structure will be reviewed and we will present our vision of the market value for materials and global equipment forecast for 2013-2020. We will finally highlight applications that will drive most of the growth for the coming years and those whose potential has to be thoroughly followed-up.
