The printed sensors market was valued at USD 6.71 Billion in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 10.46 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.0% between 2016 and 2022. The growth of this market is propelled by the advantages offered by printed sensors over conventional silicon-based sensors. Unlike the conventional sensor technology, printed sensors are flexible, thin, lightweight, and organic. The disadvantages of conventional sensors such as rigidity, bulkiness, and complex architecture among others are largely overcome by printed sensors. Thus, the demand for printed sensors is expected to grow significantly in the near future.

The printed biosensors lead printed sensors market. The large market share of printed biosensors is attributed to the high demand for glucose test strips which are used for diabetes monitoring and are the most matured type of printed sensors. Moreover, the rapid technological advancements, growing demand for glucose monitoring in diabetic patients, and rising demand for home-based point-of-care devices are the significant growth drivers for the printed biosensors market. In addition to this, the growing integration of biosensors in consumer electronics and environmental monitoring applications also contributes to the large market share of the printed biosensors market.

The smart packing application is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period. Printed sensors play a major role in the smart packaging application as they help the manufacturers to keep track of their inventories. They are also used to monitor temperature, humidity, and gas for sensitive products, especially food and beverages. Moreover, given the rise in the adoption of smart packaging across the globe to increase the visibility, hygiene, quality, and safety of the product, there is a demand for printed sensors.

Printed Sensors Market

Europe held the largest share of the printed market in 2015, while the market in Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. The high growth of the Asia-Pacific market is attributed to the presence of a number of leading consumer electronics manufacturers, rapid industrialization in the region, the growth in the production of commercial as well as non-commercial vehicles with driver assistance systems and touch infotainment systems, and the increasing number of patients of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes.

One of the key restraining factors for the companies operating in this industry is the selection of the right materials for the sensor. The materials used in the fabrication of printed sensors are substrates and electrically functional inks. The obstacles in terms of the low electrical conductivity and high resistance of the ink are a major restraint for the development of printed sensors. It is also essential to choose suitable printing methods along with the right conductive ink to cater to the growing requirements of high-precision advanced medical or electronic devices.

ISORG SA (France) is a major player in the printed sensors market and holds a leading position in developing printed image sensors and photodetectors with organic materials. ISORG is a pioneer in developing photodetectors and image sensors using organic and smart substrates such as plastic and glass. The company’s sensors are very robust as well as scratch and dust proof, which makes them compatible with the industry environment and easy to use. Through its products, the company serves various applications such as consumer electronics, home appliances, smart building & lighting, industrial, health care & life sciences, safety & security, environment, and toys & education.
