On the basis of end-use application, the global printed electronics market is categorized into the following segments:

  • Retail and packaging
  • Consumer Electronics
  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Healthcare
  • Others (media, etc.)

Retail and packaging represented the most attractive and largest end-use application segment in the global printed electronics market in the base year 2016. The segment is expected to retain its dominance and witness strong growth during the forecast period of 2017–2025, primarily supported by the acceptance of smart technologies and demand for smart packaging in the retail sector. Consumer electronics represent another potential end-use segment in the global printed electronics market. The demand for flexible printed circuits is experiencing an upsurge and is replacing conventional circuit boards. This is primarily on account of the growing preference for miniaturization and superior functionality in consumer electronics. Furthermore, flexible printed circuits 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 basis of the printing technology employed, the global printed electronics market is categorized into the following segments:

  • Gravure
  • Screen Printing
  • Flexography
  • Offset Lithography
  • Inkjet Printing
  • Others

As of 2014, screen printing was the most preferred technology employed for printed electronics across the globe. Screen printing, being the traditional and most widely known technology, accounts for the majority of the market's revenue share. The technology has been widely used for designing and manufacturing electronic devices, including capacitors, coils, diodes, and resistors, among others. In addition, the benefits offered by screen printing technology, such as offering manufacturers complete control over print thickness, have ensured its dominance in the printed electronics market. Inkjet printing is also presumed to witness strong adoption in the coming years on account of the benefits offered in terms of size, weight, scalability, and the fast deposition of organic materials without the need for patterning. Similarly, flexography printing technology is also witnessing strong growth in adoption owing to its high printing quality on materials used for packaging.

On the basis of geography, the global printed electronics market is segmented into the following regions and countries:

  • North America
  • U.S.
  • rest of North America
  • 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

As of 2016, the global printed electronics market was led by Asia Pacific, closely followed by North America and Europe respectively. The growth in the Asia Pacific printed electronics market is largely backed by growing demand for flexible and thinner electronics in countries including China, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea. Evolving digital habits of consumers in the region, coupled with the proportionate latent demand for e-paper displays and electroluminescent displays, have further provided the impetus to the market's growth. North America is also presumed to register strong growth during the forecast period of 2017–2025. The formation of NextFlex, a consortium of academic institutions, companies, nonprofits, and governments, has benefited the printed electronics market in North America, especially the U.S. It was founded in 2015 with the goal of advancing the country's manufacturing of flexible hybrid (traditional + printed) electronics.
