Global Printed Electronics Market Report is forecasted to reach $19 billion by 2024; growing at a CAGR of 22.6% from 2016 to 2024. Printing process of the conductive polymers and inks onto the fabrics or foils, to manufacture electrical circuits is printed electronics. Printing electronics is widely used for creating transistors, coils, and other electrical boards or circuits. It is a flexible and faster method of manufacturing circuits, however, costs comparatively higher compare to traditional printing methods. Electronics, healthcare, media and others applications area pose a huge demand for printed electronics driven by its thickness and compressed size.
Wide range of substrates, low manufacturing cost, and eco-friendly technology are the major driving factors of the global printed electronics market. Additionally, increasing demand of flexible and bendable electronics has also boosted the growth of the market. However, lack of consumer awareness and growing competition from non-printed electronic products is the major challenge for competitors. Innovative product developments would provide several growth opportunities for the market in the coming years.
The global printed electronics market has been segmented by technology, application, and materials. Technology includes ink-jet printing, flexography, screen printing and gravure printing. The application segment is further sub-segmented into automotive, electronics, display, and others. Substrates and Inks are the various classifications of printed electronics market by materials. Screen printing dominated the technology segment with the largest market share in 2016, and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. Inkjet printing is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR, owing to its multiple features such as, light, compact, high resolution, and low cost.
Geographically, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and ROW. The U.S., Canada, and Mexico are covered under North America wherein Europe covers Germany, France, United Kingdom, Spain and others. Asia-Pacific covers China, India, Japan, South Korea and others. Rest of the world (RoW) covers South America, Middle East and Africa.
