NEW YORK, March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Global Printed Electronics Market—Analyzing the True Potentialhttp://www.reportlinker.com/p01054115/Global-Printed-Electronics-Market—Analyzing-the-True-Potential.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Electronic_Component_and_Semiconductor This research service provides an in-depth analysis of the printed electronics market. Printed electronic devices are characterized by plasticity, greater portability, and scalability. The scope of the present study includes a market forecast developed for geographic regions including APAC ( Asia-Pacific), EMEA ( Europe, Middle East, and Africa) and the Americas. The study also includes revenue forecasts for the printed electronics market on the basis of application. The base year for this study is 2011, and revenue and revenue growth rates are provided for 2008 through 2016. The study takes into account the production of printed electronics products. Executive Summary •Printed electronics refers to the process of creating electronic devices utilizing electrically functional ink on a variety of substrates employing conventional printing methods. Printing technologies defined in this report comprise both print and deposition techniques.•The research includes products made without the use of printing techniques using deposition.•The printed electronics domain is characterized by simple and cost-effective fabrication of printed electronic devices. The major benefit of printed electronics is low cost, which in turn enables more applications.•Considering the nascent phase of this market there is still a small measure of ambiguity as to the application areas being targeted. Some assumptions may be on target while others can be failures due to several reasons, cost of materials being one of the prime concerns.•The biggest bottleneck is the definition of the types of value-added applications. As printing methods are already well-established in the industry, this field is easily accessible to new entrants. Printed electronic devices are characterized by plasticity, greater portability, and scalability.
