Global Roll-to-Roll Printing Market: Snapshot
Roll-to-roll (R2R) printing refers to a family of manufacturing technologies that involves the constant processing of a flexible substrate as it is moved between two moving rolls of material. Advancements in the field of R2R have made it an important class of substrate-based manufacturing process in which subtractive and additive techniques are used to build structures in a constant manner. The process, comprises many techniques that, when brought together, help produce rolls of finished material in a highly efficient and economical manner, with the added benefits of in mass quantities and high rate of production. Factors such as low cost and high throughput are the key differentiators of the R2R printing technique from conventional manufacturing such as batch processing, which involves multiple steps.
Although the initial costs required to set up a R2R printing system could be high, the costs are often recovered through economies of scale. Presently, R2R printing process is commonly applied in a number of manufacturing fields, including large-area and flexible electronics, printed/flexible thin-film batteries, flexible solar panels, textiles and fibers, metal sheet and foil manufacturing, medical products, and membranes.
In the field of electronic devices, R2R processing is increasingly becoming the preferred technology for producing a variety of large-area and flexible electronic devices in a fast and cost efficient way. With the consumer electronics industry exhibiting a massive potential of growth, the market for R2R printing is also expected to massively benefit. This report presents a thorough examination of the present state of growth of the global R2R printing market and includes a thorough account of the potential development of the market over the period between 2017 and 2025.
