Key Market Trends Fueling Growth

  • A notable trend in technology is the emergence of stretchable electronics, also termed elastic electronics, which involve the fabrication of electronic circuits capable of stretching and deforming.
  • These circuits can either be placed on stretchable substrates or integrated into flexible materials such as silicones or polyurethanes.
  • The adoption of stretchable electronics is poised to unlock a myriad of innovative applications, spanning from cyber skin for robotic devices to flexible implantable electronics and stretchable energy storage solutions.
  • Additionally, stretchable electronics hold promise for applications like blood glucose test strips, showcasing their potential to revolutionize diverse sectors.
  • The healthcare sector is expected to spearhead the growth of the stretchable electronics market, driven by the escalating demand for real-time monitoring in critical patient care contexts, alongside health tracking requirements in military and sports environments.

Market Challenges

  • A significant obstacle impacting market penetration is the issue surrounding encapsulation.
  • The encapsulation process poses a substantial challenge in the manufacturing of flexible OLED displays and light panels due to its complexity and high cost.
  • This challenge is prevalent across both flexible and rigid substrates, resulting in elevated manufacturing expenses as production volumes increase.
  • Leading companies such as SAMSUNG and LG Display, employing vapor deposition techniques, grapple with the considerable expense associated with curved OLED displays.
  • Similarly, the cost burden of encapsulation is anticipated to persist for printed OLED displays, with costs likely to mirror those of vapor deposition.
  • Initially, glass substrates are expected to dominate the landscape of OLED display manufacturing, serving as the primary substrate material.
