New Report Says Plastics Will Change the Face of the Electronics Industry

New Report Says Plastics Will Change the Face of the Electronics Industry

STERLING, Va., Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Plastic electronics, based on conductive polymers and flexible substrates, will change the face of electronics, according to a new report from NanoMarkets, LC, a leading industry analyst firm. NanoMarkets forecasts that the worldwide plastic electronics market will grow to $5.8 billion in 2009, and reach $23.5 billion by 2012. Additional information can be found at http://www.nanomarkets.net/. Members of the press may request an executive summary of the report.

Key Findings:

In 2009, NanoMarkets expects that displays will account for 46 percent of the plastic electronics market and that memory will account for 38 percent. By 2012 the markets for logic/processors, flexible solar panels and sensors will all be measured in the billions of dollars.

In 2009, 37 percent of plastic electronics products will come from the mobile phone sector, but by 2012, plastic electronics will make its impact felt in numerous other segments. Plastic electronics will enable the creation and production of roll-up displays to be used with computers and mobile phones, flexible solar panels that can be laminated to walls and ceilings or used to power portable equipment and ultra-low-cost RFID tags that will completely replace bar codes in retail outlets. None of these could ever be built using standard CMOS technology.

Electronics built on conductive polymers and flexible substrates offer some compelling advantages over CMOS platforms given their low-costs, reduced power consumption and flexibility. They can be printed using techniques similar to those of ink jet printing or rubber stamping which would reduce the need for building giant fabs. This in itself makes plastic electronics a serious interest point for the industry as the ability to produce circuits without significant capex or being forced to recoup costs through high-output manufacturing means that the chip companies would be able to capitalize on market opportunities previously unavailable to them.

In addition to analyzing the current and future opportunities for plastic electronics, NanoMarkets' new report, "Plastic Electronics Markets: A Technology Analysis and Eight-Year Forecast" analyzes the strategies of the leading firms in this area including Dow Chemical, DuPont, Eastman Kodak, Fujitsu, General Electric, HP, Infineon, Lucent, Motorola, Philips, Sony and Xerox, as well as smaller firms such as Plastic Logic and Cambridge Display Technology. The report also provides eight-year forecasts that break out the market by key applications segments and product types. This report is targeted towards professionals in the following industries: specialty chemical and materials companies, semiconductor and semiconductor tool manufacturers, imaging and display companies, computer device manufacturers and component suppliers as well as investment analysts, venture capitalists and technology researchers.

This is one of a new series of reports from NanoMarkets that examine key areas of the emerging nanoelectronics market. The reports are available as a subscription service or may be purchased individually.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through.

There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
