Chip On Flex Market is expected to grow at CAGR of 4.43% during 2016 to 2021 and expected to reach market size of US $1795 Million by the end of forecast period.
Chip On Flex is also known as direct chip attachment. Chip On Flex possess high bending strength, which makes it useful in processes that require bending and folding. It is also used in electronic equipment which requires repeated movements such as printers. The other advantages provided by Chip On Flex technology include savings in space, mechanical flexibility, low production cost and increased reliability from heat distribution. Unlike rigid boards, flex circuits are not restricted to two dimensions. Because they are as flexible as wires or ribbon cables, flex circuit design options are endless. Flex circuits can be designed to meet highly complex and unimaginable configurations while being able to operate in the most hostile environments. Flexible Circuits are third dimension and can interconnect between two or more planes during execution. With the increasing footprints of wearable’s in the medical device space the two dimensional circuits are getting replaced by the flexible circuit boards acts as an opportunity for the growth of flexible printed boards during the forecasted period. The ability of the flexible circuit boards is to bend and twist into different shapes that help them to fit into place where rigid PCB’s cannot. Flexible circuits are favored in applications where size and weight are important considerations, such as implantable medical devices, that include pacemakers, defibrillators, and cochlear implants are among the implantable devices that employ flexible circuits.
