Report Digest


Most of the conventional electronic systems use a complex combination of components that can neither be bent nor stretch. However, emergence of stretchable and conformal electronics in the recent times has led to the possibilities of endless designs. As the components of these newly developed technologies can be compressed, twisted and conform to complex non-planar surfaces, stretchable and conformal electronics are promising to achieve a variety of applications for healthcare, consumers electronics, energy, and even for military purposes. With a diverse range of components, these electronics have shown a good potential for next technology revolution in the field and are starting to move beyond lab to early commercial stretchable and conformal electronics market.

Growing demand for electronic devices, especially wearable devices that are soft, comfortable, and stretchable to a certain degree is considered to be the primary factors leading to the development of stretchable and conformal electronics market.

Stretchable and Conformal Electronics Market – Notable Developments

  • Foricot – Tampere, Finland-based stretchable electronics startup has recently raised 4 million euros for stretchable electronics, funded by Volvo and Heraeus Holding GmbH.
