The global roll-to-roll printing market for flexible devices is expected to grow from USD 16.31 Billion in 2015 to USD 35.79 Billion by 2022 at a CAGR of 11.04% between 2016 and 2022. The market for flexible devices is expected to grow substantially due to factors such as the advantages of using flexible devices in the electronics industry, high speed fabrication using roll-to-roll printing, and the fast growing market for flexible screens.

The roll-to-roll printing material market comprises different substrates and inks where the substrate market is again classified into paper, plastic film, metal foil, stainless steel, and glass. Plastic film held the largest market share in 2015. Plastic film substrates are the most widely used substrate material in flexible electronics applications requiring high degree of bendability, transparency, and emissive properties. Owing to certain key benefits offered by thin film plastic substrates (such as flexibility, low temperature requirements and low cost), plastic film substrates are expected to hold a large market share in the near future. Printed RFID tags, sensors, organic photovoltaics, and flexible displays have a good potential and make substantial use of thin film plastics as a substrate, which will drive the plastic substrate market at the highest rate.

The market for the consumer electronics end-user industry of roll-to-roll printing for flexible devices is expected to grow at the highest by 2022. The growing adoption rate across large-scale consumer electronic appliances such as televisions, smartphones, tablets, laptops, and e-book readers among others is the key driver for the growth of the market in the consumer electronics industry. The consumer electronics’ application of flexible electronics is highly diversified and surging at a remarkable growth rate owing to continuous technological advancements and innovations taking place in the existing range of products. Flexible displays, thin film energy storage devices (such as supercapacitors), photovoltaic cells, printed sensors, printed memory devices, and flexible printed circuits are some of the flexible devices which are used in diversified consumer electronic products

In 2015, North America led the roll-to-roll printing market for flexible devices, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. The U.S. held the largest share of the North American R2R printing market for flexible devices owing to the continuous technological development in the U.S., followed by Canada and Mexico.
