In this report we will examine the revenue potential of 3D printed electronics, examining current R&D and its commercialization potential as well as the new materials and 3D printing technologies that are being developed for this new area. We also examine how 3D printed electronics will be used in both prototyping and direct manufacturing of antennas, interconnects, PCBs, sensors and other devices and where initial revenues will emerge. We also examine the product/market and manufacturing strategies of the firms that are now pursuing the 3D-printed electronics opportunity.

Structural electronics (SE) is one of the most important technological developments of this century. It forms a key part of the dream, formulated decades ago, of computing disappearing into the fabric of society. It also addresses, in a particularly elegant manner, the dream of Edison in 1880 that electricity should be made where it is needed. SE is often biomimetic - it usefully imitates nature in ways not previously feasible. It is a rapidly growing multi-billion dollar business.

We forecast that ITO alternatives will sell more than $220m in 2026 based on the latest and our projected film prices, thus achieving a 10-year CAGR for nearly 40%. We anticipate that nearly 65% of the growth will stem from applications which today make up only 3% of overall TCF/G sales.

The global market for transparent conductive coatings should reach over $7.7 billion by 2021 from over $5.7 billion in 2016 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.2% from 2016 to 2021. Transparent conductive coatings used to be limited to transparent conductive oxides applied by vacuum deposition techniques. New families of materials with roll–to–roll compatible manufacturing processes and diverse chemical properties are challenging the supremacy of indium tin oxide.

Stretchable electronics concerns electrical and electronic circuits and combinations of these that are elastically or inelastically stretchable by more than a few percent while retaining function. For that, they tend to be laminar and usually thin. No definitions of electronics and electrical sectors are fully watertight but it is convenient to consider stretchable electronics as a part of printed electronics, a term taken to include printed and potentially printed (eg thin film) electronics and electrics. This is because the cost, space and weight reduction sought in most cases is best achieved by printing and printing-like technologies.
