Growing demand of stretchable conductors in consumer electronics is the major driver for the stretchable conductive material market

The consumer electronics industry is one of the major application areas for the stretchable conductor material market. The key products which are expected to use stretchable conductor materials are wearable devices. The researchers and technologists are also working on other products such as TV and laptops, which are expected to be launched in the next 5-10 years.

The electronics and semiconductor industry offers the highest potential for the growth of the stretchable conductor material market. The applications in devices such as display and touch and consumer electronics would generate a huge demand for stretchable circuit-based electronic components and devices. The consumer goods industry is witnessing rapid technological developments such as smart textile wears and flexible products to be used for various applications.

The developments in terms of design strategies, materials, and assembly techniques have contributed to the field of electronics because of the flexible shapes and sizes of electronic products, making the entire system user friendly and handy. The earlier traditional methods restricted the integration of electric components into a rigid board, but these rigid boards can now be replaced by stretchable boards. To overcome the complexities in traditional system designing, engineers and scientists are developing a set of capabilities for high-performance stretchable and flexible electronics.
