STMicroelectronics N.V. (Netherlands) and Blues Spark Technologies (U.S.) are the Leading Players in the Printed Battery Market

Thin film and printed batteries have supported the growing requirement for miniaturized wearable and healthcare devices and are also implemented in many new applications. On the basis of chargeability, thin film and printed batteries are categorized into rechargeable and single-use batteries. A variety of materials are used to enhance the features and efficiency of the battery, including battery life and bio-compatibility. On the basis of voltage rating, thin film and printed batteries are categorized into below 1.5 V, between 1.5 V and 3 V, and above 3 V. The thin film and printed battery market is mainly led by batteries having below 1.5 volts. The thin film and printed battery market is expected to be worth USD 1.25 Billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 24.7% between 2016 and 2022. The growth of this market is propelled by the increasing demand for wearable devices, increasing integration of printed battery solutions in smart textiles and high requirement of thin film and printed battery solutions in the healthcare industry
