Printed Electronics in Healthcare Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, Production, Consumption and Forecast 2020 to 2027

Printed electronic products provide users with photonic devices and a variety of substrates on the printed electronic products. The printing technologies used include flexographic printing, ink jet printing, intaglio printing and screen printing. These techniques are used for printing on substrates such as cloth, paper and plastics.

Low cost of manufacturing, the evolvement of digital print technology, rise in funding activity and the healthcare industry’s inclination towards newer technologies are the factors responsible for the growth of the printed electronics market in the healthcare industry.

Printed electronics for healthcare and beauty encompasses stretchable, flexible, conformal and sometimes biodegradable electronics and electrics. It is very thin and lightweight, even in hybrid constructions that, for now, incorporate conventional integrated circuits (IC), light emitting diodes (LED) and other chips in a partly printed device in order to perform functions not yet possible with entirely printed surfaces. Saving up to 40% of cost, space and weight and making new things possible are typical achievements. This is the only up to date, comprehensive report on this rapidly emerging technology and covers; electronic medical implants, patches, disposables, and drug and cosmetic dispensing: stretchable, flexible, wide area, low cost, disposable electronics. It looks at how technologies such as NFC are impacting healthcare provision.

New Enabling Technology - but what are the real opportunities vs hype?

Printed and potentially printed thin film electronics provides many benefits in healthcare and beauty including low cost in many cases, even to the point of disposability, and greatly enhanced functionality in other cases. Frequently, it makes new things possible. It does this in two ways. It is the basis of totally new components relying on new physical principles, examples including metamaterials and memristors. Secondly it makes possible the creation of new devices such as self-powered implants that never need a battery to be replaced. Battery replacement by surgical procedure causes up to 3% of fatalities.

All this addresses the modern needs of healthcare in the private house and on-the-go and more effective, affordable healthcare and beauty products that are easier to use, unobtrusive, greener, automatic and safer. The greying of the population and lack of staff and facilities for conventional healthcare are addressed.

This new technology takes an increasing variety of forms from implants to smart skin patches, radio frequency identification (RFID) and smart packaging. The human interface is improved with sound, moving images, light emitting graphics and so on. Other functions achieved are as widely different as automatic drug delivery and anticounterfeiting. Multiple benefits are commonplace. In a drug trial, recording which pill was removed, when, and plotting this helps patients to do better - get well sooner - and reduces the amount of corrupt data.

Printed electronics is therefore helping to prevent sickness and reduce errors, drive down costs and crime and improve product performance. For the user, it makes life easier, safer and more enjoyable. To the supplier, it is an opportunity to finally nail supply chain inefficiencies to increase market share and profit. Sometimes, it can justify premium pricing and reinvigorate brands, partly with packaging that becomes part of the product in a more meaningful way and with much more sophisticated, relevant electronic rewards incorporated. On the other hand, a niche product such as a medical instrument can become a volume product usable by almost anyone.
