Flexible Electronics & Circuit Market size forecast to 2026 with covid-19 impact Analysis

The outbreak and the spread of COVID-19 have significantly impacted players operating in the flexible electronics & circuit value chain. Rising demand for consumer electronic devices is one of the key factors fueling the growth of the flexible electronics & circuit market. However, as the complete shutdown of all manufacturing plants, public places and offices due to lockdowns across the world, the demand for flexible electronics decreased dramatically. Also, demand of these electronics have decreased significantly worldwide owing to lockdowns imposed by different governments to contain the spread of the COVID-19, it has impacted the growth of the flexible electronics & circuit market. Moreover, these lockdowns have also impacted the GDP of countries and the per capita income of individuals across the world. The low disposable income has resulted in reduced purchasing power of masses, thereby resulting in a decline in the y-o-y growth for the whole market.

However, the latter half of the year is expected to witness normalization in the inventory levels and increased demand for flexible electronics products owing to stabilization in the consumer electronics, and automotive verticals. The COVID-19 outbreak affected the production of flexible electronics & circuit as factories across the world were temporarily shut down to curb the spread of the infection and the demand was also decreased.

Market Dynamics:

Driver: Rising demand for consumer electronic devices

Flexible electronics are cost effective, durable, and reliable, and widely used in smartphones, PCs, TVs, tablets, wearables, and other consumer electronic devices. Flexible displays are integrated in such devices to save on space, and reduce thickness and weight. The two major types of displays used are flexible organic light-emitting diode (OLED), and flexible organic liquid crystal display (OLCD). The demand for flexible electronics is growing with the increasing demand for consumer electronic devices. Although there has been a dip in the shipment of smartphones due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the smartphone market is expected to revive soon.

The growing penetration of consumer electronic devices across sectors also fuels growth in the flexible electronics & circuit market.

Restraint: High investment cost

When it comes to new technologies cost reduction is often a strong driver of R&D efforts. However, the cost of new materials and equipment for flexible electronics research is very high. Manufacturers thus need a huge focus on R&D to create value beyond cost reduction, such as thinner and more lightweight, robust and flexible products. Decisions regarding investments in certain technologies will be ruled by their material properties. The development of new technologies also needs precision machinery and trained personnel, adding to the overall costs. The high investment involved is thus a restraint for the flexible electronics & circuit market.

Opportunity: Continuous technological development to create lucrative opportunities

Major companies in the industry are investing heavily in R&D to continuously develop their products. For instance, Samsung achieved 305Gbps on its 5G SA core, in collaboration with Intel.

In 2020, Apple Inc. was granted a patent for a foldable device with a hinge mechanism that utilizes movable flaps to help prevent the display from being creased or damaged when folded.

Through these developments major companies are encouraging and challenging each other to exploit the benefits of flexible technology. The continuous technological development in the flexible electronics industry is expected to create lucrative opportunities for players in the flexible electronics & circuit market.

Challenge: Difficult repair and rework

Repairing and reworking flexible electronics is a very challenging process. The types of damage to flexible electronics can include ripped or cut flex material, heat damaged/lifted pads and damaged conductors. Highly skilled persons are required to repair such damage. In some instances, the whole circuit can be damaged in the repair process. Rework on the same flex circuit is a challenging job as the circuits are very thin and complex and require high precision machinery. A flexible circuit first needs to be cleaned of all the components present and all the conductor material to prevent any short-circuiting situations.

The multilayer flex circuit held the largest share of the flexible circuit market in 2020, and will continue to hold a dominant position in the market during the forecast period.
