Flexible Electronics Market by Components (Display, Battery, Sensor, Photovoltaic, Memory), Circuit Structure (Single-Sided, Double-Sided, Rigid) Application (Consumer Electronics, Healthcare, Automotive, Energy and Power), & by Geography - Analysis & Forecast to 2014 - 2020

Flexible electronics are an advanced form of electronics which have just started penetrating into the consumer products market in the form of e-books, signage, smartphones, and e-paper applications. In addition, flexible electronics are also being deployed in military applications. However, the overall market is still relatively new and is expected to gain momentum by 2017.

This report has divided the flexible electronics industry into three segments: component, applications and geography. The thin film CIGS (Copper indium gallium selenide) PV panel market has accounted for more than 80% of the total market, but is expected to see a decreased growth rate in the forecast period. The consumer electronics market is expected to grow at a higher CAGR; this growth is expected to be fueled by consumer electronics product need and distinctive features of the flexible electronic products.
