Flexible Electronics Market Advanced Technologies & Growth Opportunities in Global Industry 2014 – 2020

VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y. – Flexible electronics, popularly known as flex circuits, have created a vibrant market since the past few years. They find a wide range of applications in healthcare and medical, wearable electronics, automotive, mobile devices, consumer electronics, military and defence, and biometrics, and continue to transform the way the electronics are being used and made conventionally. The global market of flexible electronics, though currently in its developing stage, is predicted to gain momentum in the near future and grow at a double digit CAGR over the forecast period 2014-2020.

In addition to offering transformational advantages in terms of product shape, weight, and durability, flex circuits also provide 3D configurations to product designs. Flex circuits have also held significant impact on allied industries, including wearable electronics, smart medical devices, cell phones, connectors, and IoT.

Preview Analysis of Flexible Electronics Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2014 – 2020:

According to the circuit structure used in flexible electronics, the market is segmented into single-sided and double-sided.

The geographical segmentation analyses the flexible electronics market into seven key regions, including North America, Latin America, Japan, Asia Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, and Middle East and Africa. Currently, North America forms a strong market for flex circuits, led by the U.S., followed by Canada and Mexico. However, Asia Pacific represents a developing market for flexible electronics, with prominent growth in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Philippines.

Key Players: Flexible Electronics Market

The dominant players in the global flexible electronics market include LG Corporation, Samsung Electronics, PARC, Inc., Cymbet Corporation, and Solar Frontier.

Apple and its iPhone screen supplier LG Electronics might launch the arrival of a new, ultrathin, low-power iPhone with flexible OLED screen, somewhere between 2017 and 2018. However, LG has already launched a smartphone that can be bent to a certain degree – G Flex2, in 2015. Recently in 2016, Samsung has filed two patents with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), for an “artificial muscle” system, allowing smartphones to bend in a variety of shapes without getting damaged.
