This report focuses on technologies and components in automotive applications that benefit from the advent of printed/flexible electronics and already represent a market of a few hundred million dollars in 2016. Some of the technologies described within the report are mature markets and are not expected to dramatically increase their market share or revenues (e.g. windscreen defoggers) whereas others, such as structural or in-mould electronics, are expected to grow significantly in the next decade
The global market for flexible devices manufactured by R2R technologies totaled $14.6 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach $28.1 billion by 2020 at a compound annual growht rate (CAGR) of 13.9% from 2015 to 2020.
This report provides:
This report provides an updated review of R2R technologies for flexible devices, including a description of various device types and R2R fabrication processes, and identifies current and emerging devices fabricated using R2R technologies.
This research determines the current market status for these products, defines trends, and presents growth forecasts for the next five years. The R2R flexible device market is based on the following segments: device type, substrate material, process, and region. In addition, technological issues, including key events and the latest process developments, are discussed.
More specifically, the market analysis is divided into five sections:
In the first section, an introduction to the topic and a historical review of R2R technologies for flexible devices are provided, including an outline of recent events. This section identifies devices that are currently commercially available or emerging, and offers a description of the main types.
The second section provides a technological review of the fabrication steps used to manufacture R2R flexible devices, with an outline of the most common processes. This section concludes with an analysis of the most important technological developments since 2013, including examples of significant patents recently issued or applied for, as well as highlighting the most active research organizations operating in this field.
The third section entails a global market analysis of R2R flexible devices. Global revenues (sales data in millions of dollars) are presented for each segment (device type, process, substrate material, and region) with actual data for the years 2013 and 2014, and estimated revenues for 2015.
The analysis of current revenues for R2R flexible devices is followed by a detailed presentation of market growth trends based on industry growth, technological trends, and regional trends. The third section concludes by providing projected revenues for R2R flexible devices within each segment, together with forecast compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) for 2015 through 2020.
In the fourth section of the study, which covers global industry structure, the report offers a list of the leading manufacturers of R2R flexible devices, together with a description of their products. The analysis includes a description of the geographical distribution of these suppliers and an evaluation of other key industry players. Detailed company profiles of the top players are also provided.
The final section includes an extensive U.S. patent analysis, with a summary of patents related to materials, fabrication processes, equipment and applications for R2R flexible device. The patents examined in this study were issued during the period 2013 through 2015. Patent analysis is performed by region, country, assignee, patent category, process and device type.
Pricing, properties and projections for materials including photopolymers, thermoplastics and metal powders. 3D printing is currently the subject of a great deal of speculation and excitement in the media. Touted as the technology to bring about the next industrial revolution and the in-sourcing of manufacturing jobs back to the West, the term in fact refers to a raft of technologies each of which is compatible for use with a particular material type.
