Market is huge
Print and electronic, the two seem unrelated industries, combined to produce what the market "energy" mean? Lee Road, Hai said the combination will form a new industry, able to generate good profits. Therefore, as printed and electronic information technology products with the degree of improvement is creating a new industrial printed electronics industry. Lee Road, Hai said: "The future form of the printed electronics industry or product, can the printing industry with our current complement of civilian products, but also can greatly extend the field of printing, so printing is no longer confined to some of the paper products."
As we all know, the information technology industry is developing very fast, and its products are in the early advent of the technology of high-profit areas. Market in terms of its capacity, how much? Lee Road, Hai said that a survey called the IDTechEx foreign professional organizations issued in 2007, market research report predicts that the world of printed electronics industry output in 2017 will reach $ 330 billion.
In addition, according to Citic Securities research report, currently the world's paper is about the size of the battery market of $ 2.5 million in 2015 expected to exceed $ 5.6 billion. Battery refers to the use of paper or other paper as a carrier film substrate, conductive ink printing, printing can be made from thin batteries.
According to the China PCB Technology Network news, computer, communications and consumer electronics is a printed circuit board (PCB) industry, the core of the three applications, the industry's output accounted for 70% or so. With laptops, smart phones and tablet PC market's rapid development, the three main areas will remain strong future growth. The next five years, China PCB assembly industry will get an average annual growth rate of about 9.3%, far higher than the global average.
When printing substrates, becomes very different from the traditional paper-based organic or inorganic, in the printing production line, people see no newspapers, periodicals, books, catalogs and other paper products, but flexible electronic paper, circuit boards, mobile phones, photovoltaic cells, memory, sensors, radio frequency identification (RFID), flexible displays and other electronic products, suggesting an emerging printed electronics industry has been formed. People need not worry about printing paper printing market shrinking, because a new printing market waiting to explore and enjoy.
