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.

4D printing is defined for this market study as the technology in which the fourth dimension entails a change in form or function after the 3D printing of Programmable Material (PM). In other words, 4D printing allows objects to be 3D printed and then to self-transform in shape and material property when exposed to a pre-determined stimulus such as submersion in water, or exposure to heat, pressure, current, ultraviolet light, or some other source of energy.
