Global Roll to Roll Technologies for Flexible Devices Market: Overview
Roll-to-roll processing, also referred to as web processing, reel-to-reel processing, or simply R2R, is the process of building electronic devices on a roll of flexible plastic or metal foil. Roll-to-roll technologies have found application in the manufacture of flexible solar panels, large area electronic devices, medical products, fibers and textiles, wearable devices, etc.
Roll-to-roll technology is an upcoming technology that has supplanted conventional substrate materials such as the traditional glass and silicon wafers with flexible ones, namely thin glass, plastic substrates, and metal foils, which are usually called flexible electronics or flex circuits. Its unique perceived benefits are its flexibility, light weight, and ultra-thin texture that is particularly useful in the mass production of advanced electronic devices. The global market for roll-to-roll technologies for flexible devices is slated to expand at a cracking pace in the near future because of the aforementioned reasons.
