Global Printed Sensor market 2016-2020
About Printed Sensor
Printed sensors, a subset of printed electronics, are manufactured by using techniques like screen printing, flexography, gravure, and inkjet. Printed sensor technology makes sensing much easier and improves monitoring substantially, because it can be integrated into flexible substrates such as paper, plastic, and foil. These sensors can be woven into cloth to measure bodily functions, used to create human-centered interfaces, or can be directly attached to the skin for healthcare purposes.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global printed sensor market to grow at a CAGR of 3.36% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global printed sensor market for the period 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of printed sensors.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Printed Sensor Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Printed Sensor Market: GSI Technologies, ISORG, KWJ Engineering (SPEC Sensors), Peratech and Thin Film Electronics
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Acreo, BeBop, Interlink Electronics, Meggitt, Plastic Electronic, PST Sensors, Synkera, Tekscan, T+Ink.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The market is expected to grow significantly due to the presence of some emerging trends such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and the development of wearable technology. The IoT is used to connect all devices in the surrounding environment to the Internet. Sensors in electronic devices use the Internet to communicate vital information and make people aware of their surroundings.”
According to the report, while biosensors are the most commoditized printed sensors, a new generation of printed sensors are emerging with a vast variety of applications, such as detecting and measuring physical properties of objects, converting these properties into analog signals, and analyzing those signals. Advantages such as the improved performance, flexibility, and low cost of these sensors will drive this market during the forecast period.
Further, the report states that the growth of the global printed sensor market is inhibited by challenges such as a lack of technology standards, which prevents the integration of products from different vendors.
