The worldwide printed electronics (PE) market has been over-hyped and inaccurately forecast for over a decade. Yet PE still holds much potential and is now starting to show promise and commercialization. New Venture Research (NVR) has been following this emerging market for the last five years and the contract electronic manufacturing services market for more than 20 years. As a result of our extensive industry contacts and recent field interviews in PE, NVR is in a position to put a realistic stake in the ground with regard to the leading PE market applications and their potential for future growth.

This latest report - Contract Manufacturing Opportunities in Printed Electronics - 2013 Edition — is a comprehensive market analysis of emerging PE technologies and applications, and leverages our in-depth database of contract electronics manufacturing services (EMS) suppliers and markets built up over the past two decades. EMS suppliers are the best positioned to capitalize on the most promising PE opportunities, of which we have identified over 40 leading application areas. This report analyzes the highest potential products by end customer that stand to win out over traditional semiconductor and material technologies. This is because PE is creating a standalone market of its own as well as displacing some traditional semiconductor electronics. Certain market applications have clear economic and commercial advantages over the next five years (the only period that can be reasonably forecast).

Chapter 3 begins with a technical analysis of the most popular material technologies including organic and inorganic thin film transistors and other forms of printable circuits. The chapter moves on to discuss the various kinds of equipment that are used to print and layer these thin films, especially ink jet and screen printer technology which are used for the majority of PE applications today. A summary of the total equipment market by revenue is provided for 2012. The section concludes with an examination of substrates and the field of e-paper and related displays.

Chapter 4 explores and analyzes the PE market for conductive inks and thin films. Currently, the vast majority of conductive materials are composed of silver flake along with corresponding dielectrics for insulation. Other materials such as carbon/graphene, copper, gold, platinum, and carbon nanotube/silver/copper nanowire are explored. A table of all the worldwide conductive inks is summarized in terms of revenue for 2012 along with a table of conductive inks by industry segment.

Chapter 5 identifies and explores the leading product applications for PE products among ten industry segments and in context with the entire contract manufacturing market. Leading product applications are analyzed for both traditional electronics assembly and advanced PE manufacturing production.

Chapter 6 forecasts the future for PE products for 40 different product applications, contrasting the highest potential PE products against traditional semiconductor electronics. All PE product applications are summarized in the final chapter, including a ranking of the strongest markets in descending order of growth. The highest growth markets are projected to expand over 125% CAGR, while others are as low as only 5% CAGR, from 2012-2017. Overall, the market for PE products will triple over the next five years, reaching nearly $10 billion in assembly revenue value by 2017.

Chapter 7 analyzes the leading PE companies and suppliers in three ways – equipment manufacturers, advanced materials/thin film providers, and solution/integration companies that develop technical solutions or can successfully integrate one or more PE technologies. In all, 185 PE companies are profiled in this report and are organized according to category.
