Market outlook of the global printed sensor market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global printed sensor market to grow moderately at a CAGR of more than 3% by 2020. The global market for printed sensors will have a positive outlook owing to its advantages, such as availability of low-cost, flexible substrates, over conventional silicon technology. Moreover, the ability of printed sensors to fit various shapes of electronic devices and miniature electronic devices will result in the growth of the market during the forecast period. 

The eco-friendly nature of printed sensors is the key driver for the growth of this market. Printed electronics products like printed sensors use printing technologies on flexible substrates, such as paper, plastics, or foils, instead of silicon or other metal oxides, which are used to manufacture conventional sensors. This eco-friendly nature of printed sensors ensures a high level of safety for users and eliminates any health risks, which in turn results in its increased adoption during the forecast period.     

Product-based segmentation of the printed sensor market

  • Biosensors
  • Capacitive sensors
  • Gas sensors
