The contribution of these application segments to the global roll-to-roll technology for flexible device market in 2014 is as shown below:

Roll To Roll (R2R) Technology For Flexible Device Market

Consumer electronics represents the largest application segment for the flexible device roll-to-roll technology market. The segment accounted for 68.2% of the global market revenue in the base year 2014. The trend shall prolong and the segment is presumed to retain its leading position, exhibiting strong growth through forecast period 2015 – 2022. Roll-to-toll technology is predominantly used to manufacture flexible and printed circuits. The demand for flexible printed circuits is witnessing an upsurge, replacing conventional circuit boards on account of growing preference for miniaturization and superior functionality in consumer electronics. In addition, flexible printed circuits consume less space and reduce weight of electronic devices making them preferable to be used in wearable electronics, and touch screen devices like smartphones and tablets. This, in turn has a positive impact on the overall demand for R2R processing equipment that have proved cost effective for manufacturing flexible circuit devices.

On the basis of mechanism employed, the global roll-to-roll technology for flexible device market is categorized into following segments:

  • Gravure
  • Flatbed and Rotary Screen Printing
  • Flexographic Printing
  • Imprint Lithography
  • Laser Ablation
  • Offset Printing
  • Inkjet Printing
  • Other Mechanisms

The contribution of these mechanisms to the global roll-to-roll technology for flexible device market in 2014 and 2022 is as shown in the figure below

Roll To Roll (R2R) Technology For Flexible Device Market

As of 2014, flatbed and rotary screen printing was the preferred mechanism used for roll-to-roll manufacturing across the globe. The segment accounted for around one-fourth of the global market revenue in the same year. Flatbed and rotary screen printing being the traditional and most widely known R2R mechanism, accounts for majority of the market revenue share.  On the other hand, soft/imprint lithography mechanism is presumed to witness maximum adoption during the forecast period 2015 – 2022. The anticipated adoption of this mechanism is majorly backed by its ability to re-produce high resolution 3-D pattern on the substrate accurately. Inkjet printing is also presumed to witness strong adoption in the coming years on account of benefits offered in terms of size, weight, scalability, and non-contact printing.

On the basis of geography, the global roll-to-roll technology for flexible device market is segmented into following regions and countries.

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • United Kingdom
    • France
    • Germany
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • Japan
    • China
    • India
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World
    • Latin America
    • Middle East and Africa

The contribution of these regions (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and RoW) to the global roll-to-roll technology for flexible device market in 2015 is as shown in the figure below.

Roll To Roll (R2R) Technology For Flexible Device Market

As of 2014, the global roll-to-roll technology for flexible device market was led by Asia Pacific followed by North America and Europe respectively. The revenue share of Asia Pacific in the global roll-to-roll technology for flexible device market stood at 35.9% in 2014. The growth in the Asia Pacific roll-to-roll technology for flexible device market is majorly backed by growing demand for flexible electronics in countries including China, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea. These countries are also house to large number of flexible device manufacturers who prefer R2R manufacturing over other traditional manufacturing processes due to benefits offered in terms of cost, production, and throughput. In addition, resurgence in the industrial sector coupled with increasing inflow of foreign funds is expected to support the demand for flexible electronics, and hence roll-to-roll processing instruments.
