E-cars are oversupplied and changing in all respects but in this frenzy of birth and death the future is being created with hybrid cars rapidly gaining market share now and sale of pure electric cars likely to take off in the second half of the coming decade as certain technical and cost challenges are resolved. Toyota and Tesla have hugely benefited from correct market positioning but now Toyota is betting strongly on fuel cell hybrids and Tesla on mainstream pure electric cars – both graveyards for many companies in the past. A vicious shakeout of car and battery manufacturers has commenced with the winners expecting riches beyond the dreams of avarice.
New models of hybrid car from 2010-2014, one of the leading indicators of future hybrid car sales
New research finds that the global sale of hybrid and pure electric cars will triple to $178.9 billion in 2024 as they are transformed in most respects. For example, components are becoming integrated, the range extender as an optional extra breaks down the difference between pure electric and hybrid and car manufacturers vertically integrate and collaborate, competing with their suppliers.
Contents include homologated cars and car-like vehicles and their very different technology and global appeal. Many interviews are woven into the text as appropriate, with the outcome being forecasts 2014-2024 for number, cost and market value of the different types of car and technology roadmaps.

Opportunities in established and emerging markets
Printed and flexible sensors market already represented 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:
Relative market size for printed and flexible sensors in 2024
Source: Printed and Flexible Sensors 2014-2024: Technologies, Players, Forecasts
IDTechEx research group expects new hybrid CMOS image sensors 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, IDTechEx expects the piezoresistive sensor market to triple by 2018, corresponding to a 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.

The global photonic integrated circuit (IC) technology market is expected to grow to nearly $866.4 million by 2018, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 33.2%. The Optical signal processing category, the fastest-growing segment in the overall market, is moving at a tremendous 35% CAGR.
Ongoing limitations of electronic integrated circuits in pursuit of more transistors over a single silicon substrate has spurred the industry to find alternatives that provide high speed with decreasing size and high-end functionality. Optical communications represent the single largest segment in this market, expected to reach $506.5 million by 2018.
However, optical signal processing applications, valued at $25.3 million in 2013, are expected to surge to $113.4 million by 2018.
Optical communication is expected to lead the market with its sub segments such as microwave and RF photonics, long–haul and transport networks, and optical datacom. Photonic IC is frequently used in microwave and RF photonics, but in the future it is expected to be dominated by other segments and in various applications such as biophotonics and optical signal processing.
