Global Market for Thin Film Batteries, Printed Batteries, Flexible & Stretchable Batteries to 2030


Reading time ( words)

The energy demands of the ever-growing consumer electronics industry have consistently pushed the technological boundaries of batteries. The next wave of wearables will revolutionize society and dramatically improve quality of life. FitBit and Apple Watch will seem like early primitive devices compared to upcoming devices.

Advances over recent years in advanced materials, nanotechnology, MEMs fabrication, low-power microprocessors, new device architectures etc. has resulted in the rapid development of fitness and activity trackers, smart clothing, wearable technology, e-skins, and printable, rollable & stretchable electronic devices. The growth in flexible electronics has resulted in increased demand for flexible, stretchable, bendable, rollable and foldable batteries as power sources for application in flexible and wearable devices.

New developments in bendable smartphones have reached market readiness. These connected devices underpin the further development of the Internet of Things' (IoT).

However, the battery requirements of these technologies are fundamentally different from those currently serviced by Li-ion batteries (e.g. electric vehicles, laptops, handheld consumer electronic devices). A crucial challenge is developing fully integrated, lightweight, wearable and high-performance energy-storage devices to power the functioning devices in a wearable system. Flexible and stretchable batteries will play an important role in achieving the vision of wearable and conforming electronics.

Beyond Scaling: An Electronics Resurgence Initiative

06/05/2017 | DARPA
The Department of Defense’s proposed FY 2018 budget includes a $75 million allocation for DARPA in support of a new, public-private “electronics resurgence” initiative. The initiative seeks to undergird a new era of electronics in which advances in performance will be catalyzed not just by continued component miniaturization but also by radically new microsystem materials, designs, and architectures.

Today’s MilAero Options, Part 1: 'Pride Goeth Before...'
