The idea behind flexible and printed electronics has always been centered on the idea that low cost, functional flexible systems such as sensors, wearables, NFC and RFID tags, displays and more can be mass produced, and is attractive for many markets.
The challenges have been two-fold. First, there is the obvious need to capture the imagination of end users and their designers, who can find a way to use these systems. The second challenge is to transfer these ideas from the R&D side to pilot and mass production.
The good news is that there are more products nearly through the pipeline, and flexible and printed electronics are more poised to make good on their potential.
In “Intriguing New Opportunities as Flexible and Printed Electronics Reaches the Marketplace,” which begins on page 20, industry leaders from throughout the flexible and printed electronics supply chain offer their insights into new products that have the potential to change the industry.
