VC Funding and Consumer Interest Generate Growth Opportunities for Wearables

The objective of this research service is to cover the funding landscape of key emerging microelectronics technologies, viz., wearables, printed and flexible electronics, and brain-computer interface (BCI). Wearables have experienced a lot of interest from diverse fields and there have been a lot of developments worldwide. Various established companies and start-ups are constantly innovating to gain a foothold in this market.

Flexible and printed electronics has shown a lot of potential to enable low cost mass manufactured products using printing technologies. However, manufacturing bottlenecks has hindered the adoption of the technology. It is expected that these challenges will be resolved in the near term as various companies are ramping up production to meet increasing demands. The research report covers funding initiatives from government, venture capital investment, and crowdfunding. It also covers key mergers and acquisition (M&As) activities and analyses its impact. The research report also captures key trends and technology roadmaps; it also assesses gaps in funding that needs to be addressed.
