Flexible electronics in consumer electronics is a combination with a multitude of benefits for customers.

Whether it is flexible, rollable, or bendable displays and lighting, smart devices, or wearables and smart clothing, there are plenty of opportunities for flexible electronics to be integrated. Some of these technologies already have reached the market for a few years, while recent developments in flexible and printed electronics can supply exciting new functionalities. The current trends of IoT and miniaturized sensors open more opportunities for flexible electronics to be utilized. Market analysts expect the global flexible electronics market to reach $67.06 billion by 2026, with consumer electronics being the strongest application area.

Whether we are discussing integrating flexible electronics to develop new products, or matching flexible electronic technology to consumer electronics applications, there are many ways the two sectors offer each other fruitful collaboration.
