The market for displays is led by industry leaders such as Samsung and LG who produce flexible OLED display panels that are largely being deployed in smartphones, smart wearables, and televisions.  Highest growth is expected from OLED lightings as they are expected to be increasingly deployed for automotive applications.

The consumer electronics vertical is expected to hold the largest share of the market owing to the adoption of flexible displays in smartphones, wearables, and other devices. The automotive vertical is expected to demonstrate the highest growth during the forecast period due to the increased adoption of flexible displays, sensors, and OLED lighting panels.

Flexible Electronics & Circuit Market

APAC dominated the flexible electronics market accounting for the largest share of the market in 2017. In addition, the region is likely to be the fastest-growing market for flexible electronics during the forecast period. APAC is the hub for manufacturers and customers of flexible OLED panels. In the market, Samsung and LG have been the leading companies that deploy flexible displays in smartphones and televisions. In APAC, flexible sensors are also increasingly being used for healthcare applications. APAC has witnessed an increase in the installation of thin-film PVs in the recent years, and their deployment is expected to increase steadily in China. With Japan and India being prominent countries in the adoption of thin-film PVs, other countries in the region are also shifting toward renewable energy resources.

The widespread use of rigid electronic products for various applications hinders the market growth. The superior performance and better pricing structures of rigid components in applications such as displays, solar panels, batteries, and lighting solutions also restrain the flexible electronics market growth.

Major players in the market include Samsung Group (Samsung Electronics and Samsung SDI) (South Korea); LG Group (LG Display and LG Chem) (South Korea); Solar Frontier (Japan); First Solar (US); Panasonic (Japan); Konica Minolta (Japan); OLEDWorks (US); Blue Spark Technologies (US); BrightVolt (US); Heliatek (Germany); Cymbet (US); Palo Alto Research Center (US); Thin Film Electronics (Norway); Royole Corporation (US); FlexEnable (UK); and Enfucell (Finland).
