Albany, NY (PRWEB) July 24, 2014
Printed and flexible sensors are playing an increasingly important role in printed electronics. The biggest market is currently glucose sensors used by diabetics. However, other types of printed sensors are emerging. IDTechEx forecasts the market for printed sensors will have increased by more than $1 billion by 2020.
Sensors in general have a much simpler structure than displays or logic circuits. The technology barrier against commercialisation is therefore less steep compared to many other printed electronics applications. In fact, some types of sensors have always been printed. And there are many types of sensors, therefore many addressable markets.

This report covers the following categories of printed and flexible sensors:
Capacitive sensors (not including touchscreens)
Piezoresistive & Piezoelectric (pressure, force, or strain) sensors
Photoelectric (photodetectors, hybrid CMOS image sensors and digital X-ray sensors)
Opportunities in established and emerging markets
Printed and flexible sensors already represent a value of $6.3 billion in 2013. The biggest market is currently biosensors, where disposable glucose test strips are used to improve the lives of diabetics. However, other types of printed sensors are emerging, taking advantage of the latest materials.

IDTechEx expects new hybrid CMOS image sensors to quickly become the second largest market, with organic or quantum dot semiconductors replacing silicon as the photosensitive material in several applications.
Piezoresistive sensing is already an established market. Growth in piezoresistive sensors will however get additional momentum, explained by a combination of favourable trends. While the two biggest market segments are currently in Consumer Electronics and Healthcare, the next five years will see Automotive take a larger share, ultimately outgrowing Healthcare. In this scenario, IDTechEx expects the piezoresistive sensor market to triple by 2018, corresponding to 23% CAGR.
Other types of printed and flexible sensors such as photodetectors, temperature sensors or gas sensors are only emerging but they promise better performances, new form factors and ease of customisation. Now is the right time to enter the market and some companies are already positioned to reap the benefits.
