Summary
Roll-to-roll technologies are very common in the paper and fabric printing industries and are becoming increasingly popular in the electronics industry and other advanced sectors for manufacturing devices that are flexible, lightweight, and low-cost.Flexible devices that are already commercially available include flexible printed circuits, solar cells, displays, and sensors.

New devices are emerging for use in electronics, optoelectronics and other sectors.

The analyst has identified four main sectors where flexible devices that are currently produced using roll-to-roll technologies (a.k.a., R2R flexible devices) have current and potential use: electronics, optoelectronics, energy, and sensors.

This study provides an updated, comprehensive description of R2R flexible devices and their production methods, highlighting the latest developments in their fabrication technology and material used. It also offers a detailed market analysis for these products by segment (substrate material, process, application, and region), describing technical aspects and trends that will affect future growth of this market.

As shown in the Summary Table, the global market for R2R flexible devices increased from $REDACTED billion in 2016 to $REDACTED billion in 2017 and is estimated to be valued at approximately $REDACTED billion in 2018.

Increasing demand for a variety of flexible electronic devices, including flexible printed circuits, wearable electronics, flexible hybrid circuits, flexible memories, and flexible MEMS, is the main driver for this expansion, which corresponds to a healthy CAGR of REDACTED% during the period 2016 through 2018. With estimated revenues of $REDACTED billion, electronic devices currently account for REDACTED% of the total market.

Optoelectronic devices, which consist primarily of flexible displays and flexible lighting devices,represent the second-largest share of the market, at REDACTED% of the total, corresponding to estimated 2018 revenues of $REDACTED billion, while the remaining sectors represent a smaller combined share of REDACTED%.
