  • Description
  • Table of Contents

The global flexible electronics market reached a value of US$ 25.3 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of 11.7% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Flexible electronics, or flex circuits, refer to various electronic devices that are mounted on stretchable or conformable substrates, such as plastic, metal foil, paper and flex glass. These devices are bendable, twistable and stretchable, and can be incorporated into various consumer and industrial products. These devices are commonly used in smartphones, health tracking tools, security tags, automotive sensors and strain gauges in civil constructions.

The significant growth in the consumer electronics sector is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, growing consumer preference for wearable devices is also creating a positive outlook for the market. Smartphones, tablets, watches and televisions are being manufactured using flexible display panels to enhance their aesthetic appeal, portability and durability. Additionally, widespread product adoption in the healthcare industry is also providing a boost to the market growth. Flexible biomedical devices can be implanted on the patient's skin for analyzing biomechanical movements, biological signals and vital signs accurately, along with improving sensations in robotic arms and prosthetic hands. Moreover, product integration with the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) is acting as another growth-inducing factor. These devices are implanted as smart fabric sensors in helmets, seats, gloves, shoes, clothing materials and steering wheels for collection of data in real-time. Other factors, including the development of innovative, lightweight, ultra-thin and foldable variants, which are commonly used in hybrid system-in-foil (SiF) and photovoltaic (PV) system installations for solar power, are projected to drive the market further.
