Wearable Sensors 2016-2026: Market Forecasts, Technologies, Players

This report provides detailed descriptions of the sensor types that dominate wearable technology products today, and emerging sensor types that will dominate in the future. Many product types have risen through the peak of the wearable technology hype curve in the last five years before beginning the slide to disillusionment. The common feature with all of them is the prominence of sensor options as the key enabler for their most useful functions. Sensors collect data about the physical and chemical properties of the body and local environment, and use it to feed algorithms which output insightful information.

Wearable Technology Materials 2015-2025

As wearable electronics becomes skin patches, hides in apparel and so on, the material becomes the product: the old "components in a box" approach is inadequate. This report evaluates the total market for wearable electronics and how the new materials for new processes such as 2D and 3D printed and in-mold electronics take the added value. It analyses the multi-billion market for new functional materials that results up to 2025.

Structural Electronics 2017-2027: Applications, Technologies, Forecasts

Structural electronics (SE) is one of the most important technological developments of this century. It forms a key part of the dream, formulated decades ago, of computing disappearing into the fabric of society. It also addresses, in a particularly elegant manner, the dream of Edison in 1880 that electricity should be made where it is needed. SE is often biomimetic - it usefully imitates nature in ways not previously feasible. It is a rapidly growing multi-billion dollar business.

Flexible, Printed and Thin Film Batteries 2016-2026: Technologies, Markets, Players

Thin, printed and/or flexible battery (or batteries with novel form factors) are back on the agenda thanks to the rise of Internet of Things, wearables and environmental sensors. These applications require new features and battery designs that traditional battery technologies simply cannot provide. This has opened the door to innovation and added a new dimension to the global competition between battery suppliers. IDTechEx predicts that this market will grow to become a $471m industry in 2026 from a small market base today.

Functional Materials for Future Electronics: Metals, Inorganic & Organic Compounds, Graphene, CNT

We identify 37 families of new and rapidly-evolving electronic and electric device, spanning nano to very large devices. Most chemical and material companies wish to de-risk their investment by finding common formulations across this new business that has a potential of over $50 billion for them. Indeed, the biggest markets for new and reinvented electrical and electronic devices may get commoditised first or collapse suddenly, leaving the materials suppliers high and dry. Read this report to avoid such a fate.
