“A large fraction of the drivers influencing this market are driven by the evolution of the technologies involved. In many cases there is already market ‘pull’ for these developments – such as for flexible products that facilitate new design form factors. “In other cases there is manufacturing demand– such as for products that will enable roll-to-roll processing. In the area of consumer display and wearable electronics, particularly, there is a seemingly insatiable demand for innovative products.”

Alan Hodgson Report Author

Key Findings:

  • Global demand for high barrier films and coatings in printed electronics is set to accelerate through the 2016-2021 period.
  • The rising use of electronic materials that require protection from moisture and oxygen will push a market valued at $61.2 million in 2016, at a CAGR of 26% to reach a total of $192.4 million in 2021.
  • Expansion will occur principally in the large-area display segment, where sales will increase in parallel with rising demand for both OLED and quantum dot-enhanced LCD screens.
  • Market growth will be buttressed by other segments, including the use of high barrier solutions for a new generation of smart device displays – including the mass production of flexible OLED devices before the end of the decade.
