Description


Printing and flexible sensors is an emerging technology and growing steadily with growing printed electronics market. Advancements in manufacturing technology have reduced production and sensors costs drastically due to which the market is expected to see a slow growth in terms of revenue. The prices of printed and flexible sensors are expected to decline in the coming years with further advancements in manufacturing process. Traditional silicon based sensors are bulky, large in size which increases the size of electronics devices. Thus, traditional sensor solutions are not suitable in healthcare diagnostic and several other applications. On the other hand, printed and flexible sensors are simple, small and light weight due to which they are rapidly replacing traditional sensors in healthcare, automotive and light weight consumer durable applications. At present, matured markets such as biosensors and piezoresitve sensors are contributing for largest market share in the global printed and flexible sensors market. However, emerging markets such as photodetectors and hybrid CMOS sensors are expected to gain market share over the forecast period with continuous development in performance of printed and flexible sensors and increasing demand for quality imaging devices. The printed and flexible sensors market is not yet commercialized broadly and has huge growth potential in the future. In addition, countries across the world are funding for development of printed and flexible sensors technology which is attracting new entrants to invest in this market. In terms of revenue, Printed and Flexible Sensors Market is expected to reach a value of USD 7.51 billion by 2020 from USD 6.28 billion in 2013 at a CAGR of 2.5% from 2014 to 2020.
