Printed Electronics Market Size to Grow by USD 20.10 Billion | Growing Demand for Flexible Display to Boost Market Growth

Key market dynamics:

The growing demand for flexible displays is one of the key factors in the growth of the global printing electronics market. Major vendors such as SAMSUNG, Vu Technologies, Panasonic and Mitashi are shifting their focus from OLED TVs to curved LCD TVs as devices with curved LCDs are also gaining popularity in the market. Moreover, the increase in demand for flexible displays due to their use in cars, kiosks, tablets, laptops, e-readers and smart glasses is expected to positively affect the growth of the global print electronics market in the forecast period.

However, factors such as the problem of encapsulation will challenge market growth. The high cost of encapsulating flexible OLED displays and light panels will lead to high production costs, which will hinder the mass production and supply of displays and lighting panels for both rigid flat and curved displays. It is also expected that the high cost of encapsulation will hamper market growth in the spotlight over the forecast period.
