Report Digest


Flexible heater is commonly used to integrate to a surface which requires heating and is capable of operating with high-performance under adverse temperature conditions. It comes in different varieties, shapes, and dimensions which can also be molded in the shape of the heated object. Further, due to low thermal mass, the flexible heaters are used in wide range of commercial, military, and industrial applications.

A flexible heater can be wound more than once without causing damage to heating elements and heating taps, and therefore provides an effective heating source to several applications such as electronics, medical devices, and others. A focus on implementation of advanced technologies and reducing the cost of products is likely to create lucrative opportunities for leading companies operating in flexible heater market.
