Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/8d9jn6/market_and) has announced the addition of the "Global Printed & Flexible Electronics Report 2014: Market & Technology Trends in Materials & Equipment" report to their offering.
VOLUME MANUFACTURING FOR PRINTED AND FLEXIBLE ELECTRONICS WILL SOON BE ENABLED BY EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS PROVIDERS
For now, organic electronics are made on rigid substrates and mainly manufactured using vapor deposition techniques, which are costly, generally require high temperatures and generate significant product waste. Printed and flexible electronics has been a very hot topic in this past decade, holding the promise of a tremendous new market. While the printing of electronics is mainly a way to produce large electronic surfaces and reduce manufacturing costs, flexibility will provide higher robustness to the end products as well as new features, designs and shapes.
In our report, we explain how this market will be addressed by players that do not necessarily come from the semiconductor field. In this emerging part of the electronics industry, chemical companies and printing equipment companies are the players that will enable volume manufacturing and will leverage technical bottlenecks.
Indeed the main challenges today lay in:
- The development of high performance materials which will reach or surpass that of inorganic solutions: their intrinsic efficiency, their ability to be printed at a sufficient resolution, to fully operate in combination with several other materials (not to mix one with another), and their lifetime.
- The capability for chemicals companies to provide formulated molecules with new functionalities as well as very specialized active materials.
- Equipment dedicated to printed electronics, that are able to handle specialized inks and to provide printing accuracy way beyond that of standard printing (in the 10s of µm range).
Technology enablers are therefore not those usually involved in electronics development. The solution printing & coating industry is very far from the standard electronics industry, in terms of equipment and materials and they have completely different industrial cultures.
