Stretchable Electronics Market Global Development, Demand, Growth Analysis, Key Findings and Forecast to 2023

Press Release

Market Scenario:

Stretchable electronics, also known as elastic circuits, is a burgeoning technology for developing electronic circuits by embedding the stretchable electronic devices and circuits on extensible substrates or mounted on them in a stretchable chemical compound material such as silicones or polyurethanes. The Stretchable Electronics Market can be developed by implementing the chemical components used for rigid printed circuit boards (PCBs).

Some of the companies such as PARC (U.S), Cambrios (U.S), PowerFilm (U.S), Koninklijke Philips N.V (the Netherlands), Apple Inc, (U.S.), Adidas AG (Germany), 3M (U.S), DuPont (U.S), Body Media (U.S), Physical Optics Corporation (U.S), MC10 (U.S) and others are developing the stretchable electronics products. In 2016, La Roche-Posay, the parent company of L’Oréal, launched My UV Patch, the first stretchable electronic device for mainstream consumers. My UV patch is acquainted with near-field communication (NFC) antenna along with a microchip, which sends wireless signals to mobile devices. In addition to it, the product also contains photosensitive dyes that help to change color based on the exposure to light.
