Electronic Skin Patches 2018-2028
The most comprehensive assessment on the commercialization of flexible, wearable, smart skin patches.
This report characterizes the markets, technologies and players in electronic skin patches. With coverage across 26 application areas, >85 companies, 95 different product case studies, historic market data and market forecasts to 2028, it is the most comprehensive study compiled for this emerging product area. It reveals significant opportunity, with a forecast for total annual revenues in electronic skin patches to reach over $10bn per year by 2023, and approaching $15bn per year by 2028.
Interest in electronic skin patches has soared, predominantly as a by-product of the meteoric hype around wearable devices peaking in 2014. However, the interest in the area has its own grounding, with several skin patch product areas experiencing significant growth and becoming markets in the billions of dollars each year. However, success is not ubiquitous; each market discussed within this report sits within a unique ecosystem, with different players, drivers, limitations and history to build on.
As such, the report looks at each of the application areas for electronic skin patches in turn, discussing the relevant technology, product types, competitive landscape, industry players, pricing, historic revenue and market forecasts. The areas covered include diabetes management, cardiac devices, medical patient monitoring (both inpatient and outpatient), motion sensing, temperature sensing, drug and cosmetic delivery patches, smart bandages for wound care and more. For the established markets within the sector, the report contains historic revenue data by company back to 2010. The report also contains detailed market forecasting over 10 years for each of the key application areas.
The product category of "electronic skin patches" conceals a significant amount of diversity. Whilst many people may imagine skin patches to be thin, highly conformable devices that sit close to the skin, the reality is that many of the most successful products today are still relatively bulky devices. As such, the report also contains a discussion of technology areas relevant to the future development of smart patches, particularly around areas such as flexible, stretchable and conformal electronic components. Development of these technologies will not only enable more products to be deployed as skin patches, but will also for improvement in the form factor of electronic skin patches that already exist.
The research behind the report has been compiled over several years by IDTechEx analysts. It follows existing coverage of areas such as wearable technology, flexible electronics, stretchable and conformal electronics, electronic textiles, advanced wound care, bioelectronics and more. The methodology involved a mixture of primary and secondary research, with a key focus on speaking to executives and scientists from companies developing commercial electronic skin patches. As such, the report compiles case studies around 95 different products from over 80 companies, each updated over time and compared within their appropriate product ecosystems.
IDTechEx is afforded a particularly unique position in covering this topic. The experienced analyst team builds on decades of experience covering emerging technology markets, and particularly areas such as flexible electronics which are central to electronic skin patches.
