Report Description
Flexible electronics, popularly known as flex circuits, have created a vibrant market since the
past few years. They find a wide range of applications in healthcare and medical, wearable
electronics, automotive, mobile devices, consumer electronics, military and defence, and
biometrics, and continue to transform the way the electronics are being used and made
conventionally. The global market of flexible electronics, though currently in its developing
stage, is predicted to gain momentum in the near future and grow at a double digit CAGR over
the forecast period 2014-2020.
In addition to offering transformational advantages in terms of product shape, weight, and
durability, flex circuits also provide 3D configurations to product designs. Flex circuits have also
held significant impact on allied industries, including wearable electronics, smart medical
devices, cell phones, connectors, and IoT.

Global Flexible Electronics Market: Key Drivers
Superiority of Compact, Flexible Devices
As consumer devices are turning more compact retaining their smarter and more integrated
functioning, the demand for flex circuits is anticipated to escalate.
Report Description
Flex circuits are printed on ultra-thin substrates such as plastic, which impart them the foldable,
rollable, and bendable characteristics without affecting the functionality.
Preference to Light Weight, Portable Devices
Consumers are increasingly preferring light weight devices over conventional ones, for the
convenience of portability. Flexible electronics are formed on Kapton or similar materials, which
carry more than 70% of their weight and offer immense flexibility. This is another key property
that pushes the demand for flex circuits in the market.

Higher Energy Efficiency
Devices based on the flexible electronics technology consume lesser energy compared to
conventional electronic devices, and generate lesser heat while being used. This property is
crucial in popularising flex circuits in the market.
Growing Use of Consumer Electronic Devices
Consumers are increasingly using devices such as smartphones, smart glasses, smart watches,
and e-book or newspapers, which is propelling the demand for flexible electronics.
Report Description
However, the complexity of circuit assembly and higher costs are foreseen to be the biggest
barriers to the mass adoption of flex circuits.

Moreover, the technology can be used to incorporate multiple functions in a single device such
as microphones, speakers, and batteries.
Key Players: Flexible Electronics Market
The dominant players in the global flexible electronics market include LG Corporation, Samsung
Electronics, PARC, Inc., Cymbet Corporation, and Solar Frontier. Apple and its iPhone screen
supplier LG Electronics might launch the arrival of a new, ultrathin, low-power iPhone with
flexible OLED screen, some where between 2017 and 2018. However, LG has already launched a
smartphone that can be bent to a certain degree – G Flex2, in 2015. Recently in 2016, Samsung
has filed two patents with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), for an
"artificial muscle" system, allowing smartphones to bend in a variety of shapes without getting
