Report Highlights

The global market for printed electronics totaled almost $2.7 billion in 2010, nearly $3.5 billion in 2011, and BCC estimates the market will be more than $12.6 billion in 2016, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 29.4% over the next five years.


The scope of the report covers the global market (excluding military applications) for all types of printed electronics between 2010 and 2016, including:

  • Organic light-emitting diode (OLED)
  • Electroluminescent (EL)
  • Electrophoretic (EP)
  • Electrochromic (EC)
  • Organic photovoltaic (OPV)
  • Sensor
  • Other types

Military markets for printed electronics are not covered in the report, because security constraints make it difficult to obtain reliable data.

The study format includes the following major elements:

  • Executive summary
  • Types of printed electronics and their respective properties, advantages, and disadvantages
  • Printed electronics applications
  • Size, segmentation, and projected growth trends of the printed electronics market
  • Industry structure
  • Appendices (vendor profiles, key patents)
