Increase in Demand for Smart Wearable Devices

Internet of Things (IoT) devices connect numerous objects to the internet. IoT devices, such as smart wearable devices, near-body electronics, on-body electronics, in-body electronics, and electronic textiles, are widely used to monitor, diagnose, gauge, navigate, and track applications. These wearable devices are powered by thin films and flexible batteries. Widespread deployment of IoT enabled smart wearable devices is anticipated to boost the demand for flexible batteries. Increase in demand for smart watches, fitness bands, smart glasses, smart video/ photo devices, and smart clothing is projected to propel the global flexible batteries market during the forecast period.

Growing Demand for Flexible Batteries in Health Care Applications

Flexible batteries are used in medical patches and patient monitoring, transdermal drug delivery, and accelerated healing devices. Transdermal patches are used for self-administered drugs through direct skin contact. Transdermal and medical patches provide pain relief, wound care, and cosmetic treatments owing to their efficient drug delivery rate. Rise in adoption rate of transdermal and medical patches for medical and pharmaceutical applications is expected to drive the flexible batteries market. Implantable medical devices, such as pacemakers, defibrillators, and neurostimulators, require flexible batteries that are produced using non-flammable electrolytes and organic composites. Flexible batteries have low manufacturing cost and long life cycle and hence, the demand for flexible batteries in implantable medical devices is projected to increase.

North America and Europe are at the Forefront of Global Demand
