The overall market for printed and flexible sensors is forecast to reach $4.5 billion by 2030.
When considering the prospects of emerging technology, it is easy to make broad-brush claims. For example, stating that ‘greater numbers of connected devices, commonly referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT), will increase demand for printed sensors’seems an uncontroversial statement. However, as in so many areas of life, such a general statement masks a complex underlying landscape. Each technology has different target applications and different adoption barriers, both commercial and technical. As such, real insight requires a far more granular analysis, in which each sensor technology and potential application is considered independently.
The recent IDTechEx report on printed sensors, “Printed and Flexible Sensors 2020-2030: Technologies, Players, Forecasts”, employs this granular approach. It includes chapters on a wide range of printed sensor categories, including organic and hybrid image sensors, piezoresistive and piezoelectric pressure se
