Key Market Dynamics:
Growing demand for flexible displays is one of the key factors driving the global printed electronics market growth. Key vendors such as SAMSUNG, Vu Technologies, Panasonic, and Mitashi are shifting their focus from OLED TVs to curved LCD TVs as the devices with curved LCD displays are also gaining popularity in the market. Moreover, the increase in demand for flexible displays, owing to its application in automobiles, kiosks, tablets, notebooks, e-readers, and smart glasses, is expected to positively impact the growth of the global printed electronics market during the forecast period.
However, factors such as the challenge of encapsulation will challenge market growth. The high cost of encapsulation of flexible OLED display and light panels will lead to high manufacturing costs which will hamper the mass production and supply of display and lighting panels of both rigid flat and curved displays. In addition, the high cost of encapsulation is expected to impede the growth of the market in focus during the forecast period.
