Flexible Substrates Markets — 2012
Samsung’s announcement that it will go into production with flexible OLED displays in 2012 has rekindled an interest in flexible electronics and photovoltaics. The emergence of this kind of technology would have many implications in the marketplace, but not the least would be the implications for firms that make the flexible glass, plastic, metals, paper and textiles that serve as the substrates for flexible electronics and solar panels.

This report analyzes and quantifies the market for these flexible substrates. Beginning with an analysis of what parts of the flexible electronics/PV story are likely to become reality in the next decade and which are fanciful, this report shows where the opportunities are emerging for substrate firms to generate new business revenues. It goes on to examine the strategies of the leading firms already active in this space and provides an eight-year forecast of the flexible substrate market broken out by applications and type of material used.
