Forecast Report on Printed and Flexible Sensors Market

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Printed and Flexible Sensors 2014-2024: Technologies, Players, Forecasts" report to their offering.

The Market For Printed Sensors Will Increase By More Than $1 Billion By 2020

Printed and flexible sensors already represent a value of $6.3 billion in 2013. The biggest market is currently biosensors, where disposable glucose test strips are used to improve the lives of diabetics. However, other types of printed sensors are emerging, taking advantage of the latest materials. By 2024, these emerging applications will take a significant share of the total printed sensor market:

New hybrid CMOS image sensors are expected to quickly become the second largest market, with organic or quantum dot semiconductors replacing silicon as the photosensitive material in several applications.

Piezoresistive sensing is already an established market. Growth in piezoresistive sensors will however get additional momentum, explained by a combination of favourable trends. While the two biggest market segments are currently in Consumer Electronics and Healthcare, the next five years will see Automotive take a larger share, ultimately outgrowing Healthcare. In this scenario, the piezoresistive sensor market is expected to triple by 2018, corresponding to 23% CAGR.

Other types of printed and flexible sensors such as photodetectors, temperature sensors or gas sensors are only emerging but they promise better performances, new form factors and ease of customisation. Now is the right time to enter the market and some companies are already positioned to reap the benefits.

This report covers the following categories of printed and flexible sensors:

  • Biosensors
  • Capacitive sensors (not including touchscreens)
  • Piezoresistive & Piezoelectric (pressure, force, or strain) sensors
