Solar Energy to Boost Flexible Substrates Market


Reading time ( words)

The flexible substrates market is projected to grow from $402.9 million in 2018 to $775.8 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 14.0% from 2018 to 2023. The growth of the flexible substrates market can be attributed to the flourishing electronics industry across the globe. Flexible substrates are widely used in the consumer electronics industry for flexible printed circuit boards. Some of the benefits provided by the substrates that are boosting their demand globally in electronics are greater barrier resistance, increased flexibility, and greater thermal resistance. The market restraint for flexible substrates market are the established conventional rigid electronic markets whose manufacturing processes are better defined to achieve higher throughput, and which do not use flexible substrates.

Solar energy is expected to be the fastest-growing application for flexible substrates market

The fastest-growing application of flexible substrates is the solar energy application.Government initiatives in emerging economies such as China and India are driving the solar energy application of the flexible substrate market.

In addition, corporations such as IBM and Google are taking concerted steps to move toward renewable energy, which is resulting in a rise in the demand for solar modules, thereby driving the flexible substrates market.

Increased demand for flexible substrates from the Asia Pacific region

The Asia Pacific flexible substrates market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.China, Vietnam, and India are the key markets for flexible substrates in the Asia Pacific region.

The growth of the flexible substrates market in the Asia Pacific region can be attributed to the increased government spending and private sector investments being made to carry out infrastructural development projects in the region. This, in turn, leads to an increased demand for the flexible substrates market in the region.

Extensive primary interviews have been conducted in the process of determining and verifying sizes of several segments and subsegments of the flexible substrates market gathered through secondary research.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

The big news in the industry this week was the new bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in support of the PCB manufacturing industry. The Supporting American Printed Circuit Boards Act of 2022, which was introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Blake Moore (R-UT), incentivizes “purchases of domestically produced PCBs as well as industry investments in factories, equipment, workforce training, and research and development.” The bill is a PCB-oriented complement to the semiconductor-oriented CHIPS Act of 2021.

Improved Thermal Interface Materials For Cooling High-Power Electronics

03/31/2022 | Jeff Brandman, Aismalibar North America
Heat has been a significant concern in electronics since the beginning of the electronics age when hot glowing vacuum tubes were first used to receive and transmit data bits. The transistor and integrated circuit effectively solved that basic problem, but increases in integration resulted in increased concentration of heat, exacerbated by relentless increases in operating frequency. While improvements in electronics technology have been able to mitigate many thermal issues at chip level thanks to improved semiconductor designs devised to operate at lower voltages (thus requiring less energy) the thermal management challenge continues to vex electronic product developers.

It’s been a crazy week, with lots of bad news coming out of Ukraine. (I’m a news junkie by trade, but I confess that some days I just unplug from the news completely to avoid overdosing on negativity.) And, as you might have guessed, this is all having ill effects on our electronics supply chain, which is already stretched thin. This is reflected in our IPC news item that shows an uptick in PCB sales in February, but a drop in bookings YOY, in part due to the trouble in Eastern Europe. But there’s positive news in this week’s top reads. We have a NextFlex article about an innovative flexible technology called flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) and a great interview by Dan Beaulieu. We also have a column by Travis Kelly, who discusses PCBAA’s efforts to lobby for American manufacturing in Washington. And last but not least, let’s welcome our two newest columnists, Paige Fiet and Hannah Nelson, who discuss their excitement about entering this industry.
