As of 2015, flexible displays led the overall flexible electronics market in terms of revenue. The segment accounted for around two-thirds of the global market revenue in the same year. The trend shall prolong as the number of smartphones, tablets, laptops, and televisions using flexible electronics is expected to swell in the coming years. Flexible electronics consume less space, use less energy, and significantly reduce the overall weight of an electronic device, making them suitable to be used in wearable electronics and devices like smartphones, tablets, and laptops. With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), the demand for flexible batteries and flexible sensors is expected to witness an upsurge during the forecast period of 2016–2023.

On the basis of application, the global flexible electronics market is categorized into the following segments:

  • Consumer Electronics
  • Smartphones and tablets
  • Television
  • Wearable Devices
  • Others (e-readers, etc.)
  • Automotive
  • Healthcare
  • Military and Defense
  • Others (energy, etc.)

Consumer electronics represents the largest application segment for flexible electronics. In the base year 2015, the segment accounted for around two-thirds of the global market revenue. The trend shall prolong, and the segment is presumed to retain its leading position, exhibiting strong growth through the forecast period of 2016–2023. The anticipated growth in this segment can be largely credited to the growing adoption of technology in smartphones, tablets, e-books, and wearable electronics (smartwatches, etc.).

The demand for flexible electronic devices is witnessing an upsurge in consumer electronics on account of the superior benefits offered by the technology. Flexible electronics consume less space and reduce the weight of electronic devices, making them preferable to be used in wearable electronics and touch-screen devices like smartphones and tablets. On the other hand, budding application segments inkling healthcare and automotive are also presumed to register strong growth during the forecast period of 2016–2023.

On the basis of geography, the global flexible electronics market is segmented into the 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

North America, comprising Canada and the United States, is currently the largest flexible electronics market in terms of revenue. In 2015, the region accounted for over 33 percent of the global market revenue. The region is a front-runner in flexible electronics-related research, and the technology has been witnessing growing penetration, especially flexible displays in smartphones. The trend shall prolong, and the region, along with Europe, is presumed to exhibit steady growth during the forecast period of 2016–2023. On the other hand, Asia-Pacific is presumed to witness maximum growth, outpacing North America and Europe during the same period.

The market growth in the region would be primarily driven by demand from countries including India, China, South Korea, and Japan. The region is home to a large number of smartphone manufacturers, flat-panel TV manufacturers, and wearable device manufacturers that are increasingly integrating technology into their products.
