Global Flexible Electronics Market to Reach $44.8 Billion by 2026
Flexible electronics is a technology that allows fabrication of electronic circuits on flexible substrates, thus making them bendable and stretchable. Flexible electronics is a progressive technology that aims to facilitate development of electronic systems in folded, curved, rolled, bent and stretched designs, while addressing the issues and challenges persisting in manufacture of miniature, compact and portable devices. Initially perceived as a futuristic concept, flexible electronics is gradually making its presence felt in various application markets. Flexible electronics integrate flexible passive components and active components in electronic system processing and are made in various forms such as displays, batteries, sensors, memory and photovoltaics (PV) among others. With the exception of the substrate itself, which needs to be flexible, flexible electronics can be manufactured by using similar materials and components as used for rigid large-area electronics. Flexible electronics generally use ultra-thin and ultra-light substrates such as plastic films, glass, metal foils, and fabrics.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Flexible Electronics estimated at US$22 Billion in the year 2022, is projected to reach a revised size of US$44.8 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 18.6% over the analysis period. Electronic Displays, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to grow at a 18.1% CAGR to reach US$31.1 Billion

Record-breaking gap mobility heralds a flexible future for electronics

Graphical abstract. Credit: DOI: 10.1021/acsaelm.1c00997

Technologists envisage an electronically interconnected foreseeable future that will rely on low cost, light-weight, adaptable devices. Initiatives to enhance the semiconductor products wanted for these electronic gadgets are thus essential. Scientists from the University of Tsukuba have claimed a history-breaking germanium (Ge) skinny movie on a plastic substrate that gives versatility without compromising effectiveness. Their findings are posted in ACS Applied Electronic Components.

Ge is a well-liked semiconductor for use in transistors mainly because it has large cost provider mobility (demand provider refers to the electrons and electron holes that transfer by way of the materials). Ge can also be processed at the rather low temperature of ~500 levels Celsius and has a very low Young’s modulus, which indicates it is a softer substitute to usually utilized materials these kinds of as silicon.

Ge slim movies can be grown making use of the strong-phase crystallization system. These slim movies are polycrystalline, which means they are created up of a lot of Ge crystals. In typical, larger crystals lead to greater provider mobilities because even bigger crystals sort fewer grain boundaries that obstruct the existing. Latest boosts in grain sizing have for that reason led to successful Ge slim-film transistors on rigid substrates such as glass.

Nevertheless, numerous of the plastic substrates utilized to introduce flexibility are not resistant to temperature earlier mentioned 400 levels Celsius, which tends to make it difficult to grow higher good quality crystals with correct carrier mobility.

Now, the scientists have utilised a polyimide film that can stand up to temperatures up to 500 degrees Celsius. This allowed publish-annealing procedure of the films, this means crystal top quality was not compromised for flexibility.

“We grew a GeOx layer immediately on the versatile polyimide, then the Ge film on top rated of that,” describes analyze direct writer Professor Kaoru Toko. “Oxygen that subtle into the Ge from the GeOx layer assisted to reach substantial crystals. We identified that the Ge crystallinity was motivated by both the thickness of the GeOx layer and the temperature at which the Ge layer was grown.”

In this review, the most significant Ge crystals observed had been approximately 13 µm in diameter and developed at 375 levels Celsius on a 100-nm-thick GeOx layer. The big grain sizing resulted in the movie possessing a hole mobility of 690 cm2 V−1 s−1, which is the optimum price documented to date for a semiconductor on an insulating substrate.

“Our history-breaking film is a major phase forward for transistor technological innovation,” claims Professor Toko. “Its large functionality, mixed with its adaptability, affordability, and portability, make it flawlessly suited to the improvement of new versatile gadgets this kind of as wearable electronics to assist potential electronic initiatives this sort of as the internet of matters.”
