Global Printed and Flexible Sensor Market was valued at $7.2 billion in 2016, and is projected to reach $12.3 billion by 2024, having a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2024.

Sensors play an important role in printed electronics. Miniaturization of sensors, as a result of enhancement and development in sensor manufacturing technology, has hiked the demand of printed and flexible sensors in numerous applications. Sensors are majorly used to sense and measure a physical property in order to record, indicate, or respond to it. Manufacturers are focusing on printing of electrodes, as it helps in a cost effective fabrication of sensor arrays over large area on a flexible substrate. The printed and flexible sensors are in the initial phase of their commercialization. This technology is widely finding its use in various applications such as healthcare, safety and security, packaging, automotive, packaging and others. There are various printing processes which are followed while printing the electrodes such as dip-pen nanolithography, vapor-phase printing, inkjet, micro contact, nano-imprinting, lamination, laser processing, transfer printing, roll to roll photolithography, etching and others.

Market Determinants

The benefits of printed sensors over conventional sensors and a swift growth in individual application segment are the major driving factors for the growth of printed and flexible sensor market. Moreover, the flexible printed sensors are cheaper, simple in design, highly efficient, light weighted and versatile in use. However, challenges in conductive ink printing and insufficient technological accessibility are some major restraints to the market growth. On the other hand, the growing internet of things (IoT) market will drive the demand for printed and flexible sensors as objects in IoT require sensors to transmit the data over networks.
