Flexible Barrier Films for Electronics Market

Market Insights on Flexible Barrier Films for Electronics covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

Flexible Barrier Films For Electronics Market By Product Type (Flexible Electronics, Photovoltaic), Application (Consumer Electronics, Automotive, Defense & Aerospace, Medical & Healthcare, Energy, Power & Utility) & Region - Forecast 2022 - 2032

Flexible Barrier Films for Electronics Market Overview

The global flexible barrier films for electronics market is expected to register growth at a robust CAGR over the forecast period 2022-2032. Increasing emphasis on the introduction of novel flexible electronics such as sensors, displays, and others is expected to accelerate the sales of flexible barrier films in the global market.

Flexible barrier films are flexible barriers or substrates made to protect electronic circuits and other components from degradation caused due to moisture, oxygen, and other environmental factors. These barrier films are extensively being used in the development of novel electronic devices that offer features such as flexible form, versatility, lightweight, and robustness without compromising the performance of the electronic device.

Growing shift in customer preference towards adopting flexible barrier films for electronic products and components, owing to their higher level of protection from oxygen and moisture in comparison to alternatives such as metal, glass, and plastics among others is facilitating the growth in the market.

In addition to this, increasing investment in research & development (R&D) activities for the innovation and development of substrate material for providing flexible, transparent, and glass-like permeability properties to electronic components are estimated to bolster the sales of flexible barrier films.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading Flexible Barrier Films For Electronics Market Growth?

As the trend of miniaturization continues to create deeper inroads across the consumer electronics sector, industry players are increasingly aiming at reducing the weight and size of their products without compromising performance.

In addition, growing advancement of in-mold electronics and increasing use of flexible sensors in smart tracking and covering applications is encouraging the development of novel flexible electronics product, which is in turn, expected to augment the growth in the forthcoming years.

Flexible barrier films hold tremendous potential in adoption across the consumer electronic, wearable technology, and gaming industries, owing to their enquire ability to roll, curve, flex influencing, fold, and conform, enabling a new intuitive user interface. Hence, with surging demand for organics, flexible, and printed electronics devices, leading industry players are increasingly focusing on launching novel flexible and foldable electronics.

For instance, in 2021, Samsung, a South Korean multinational electronics corporation, announced launching two new foldable smartphones – Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip. These smartphones are incorporated with flexible displays and innovative stylus support. As these barriers films provide encapsulation to flexible electronics without affecting their functionality, performance, and flexibility, they are increasingly being used in flexible electronic devices. Hence, increasing demand for flexible electronics is expected to augment the sales of flexible barrier films in the market.

What are the Challenges Faced by the Flexible Barrier Films For Electronics Market?

The global flexible barrier films are highly regulated with several governing bodies and organizations such as Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Electronic Regulatory Submission. Companies in the market are required to patent their fabrication and designing, which is in turn, hindering the growth in the market.

Also, need for advancements in terms of technology and substrate material to match the encapsulation flexibility of novel flexible electronic devices is expected to restrain the growth in the market. Extravagant cost of flexible barrier films and high initial investment required to gain economy of scale during manufacturing are factors further hampering the growth in the flexible barrier films for electronics market.

Why is Asia Pacific Excluding Japan Considered an Attractive Flexible Barrier Films For Electronics Market?

As per Future Market Insights, Asia Pacific excluding Japan is forecast to exhibit robust growth in the global flexible barrier films for electronics market between 2022 and 2032.

Within growing advancement in flexible technologies and increasing demand for flexible electronic devices in countries such as China, India, South Korea, and others, leading industry players are increasingly investing in development of novel films and barriers.

For instance, in 2021, LG, a South Korean multinational conglomerate company announced introducing now foldable display barrier film, Real Folding Window, which is as hard as glass and as flexible as plastic.

Also, leading players in the regional market are also aiming at incorporating novel technologies for expanding their production to address the surging demand for flexible displays solutions. This technological advancement is expected to enable the development of flexible OLED encapsulation resulting in increasing costing efficient mass manufacturing of flexible displays, which is in turn, favoring the growth in the market.
