Printed electronics refer to electronic devices and circuits created through printing technologies such as inkjet printing, screen printing, flexography, gravure and others on various substrates. Printing electronics provide significant advantages over traditional electronics such as low-cost, light-weight and flexible substrates. Major applications of printed electronics include photovoltaics, Displays, RFID tags, batteries, sensors and others. Growing healthcare sector is increasingly adopting printed electronics for medical devices, drug delivery and biosensors applications. This helps in reducing treatment costs and improving quality of life for patients.
The global Printed Electronics Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 7114.14 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 22.1% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
One of the major trends in printed electronics market is growing adoption of printed batteries. Unlike conventional lithium-ion batteries which are rigid, difficult to shape and hazardous, printed batteries offer benefits like flexibility and compactness making them suitable for wearable devices and implantable medical devices. Another key trend is development of printed sensors for healthcare monitoring. Printed sensors help in non-invasive monitoring of various health parameters like blood glucose levels, heart rate, respiration rate etc and transmit the data wirelessly for remote patient monitoring. This helps in early detection of health issues and timely intervention. Development of new printable materials, faster and higher resolution printing techniques will further accelerate adoption of printed electronics across various end use applications.
