(PRWEB UK) 4 February 2013
Many exciting applications are emerging in the printed electronics market, with growth rates from 20122017 projected to be as high as 125% CAGR in some cases.
The report, Contract Manufacturing Opportunities in Printed Electronics:
A Comprehensive Study on the Worldwide Market for Contract Manufacturing of Printed Electronics determines that the market for PE is erupting on many fronts, as identified by analysis of 40 market applications in descending order of growth rate over the next five years.
The goal of printed electronics has been to utilise common printing equipment found in the graphic arts industry, such as screen and inkjet printers, as the means of creating low cost electronic devices.
Because of the inherent efficiency of layering printed thin films, it is believed that large scale and continuous printed devices can be made quicker and less costly than with conventional photolithography and etching semiconductor electronics. Unfortunately, not everyone adheres to the same definition of PE as opposed to semiconductor electronics, hence the confusion. The report Contract Manufacturing Opportunities in Printed Electronics: A Comprehensive Study on the Worldwide Market for Contract Manufacturing of Printed Electronics examines only those technologies that can be truly characterised as PE.
