According to the new market research report, now available on ASDReports, "Flexible Battery Market by Type (Thin-Film (Lithium-Ion, Lithium Polymer), Printed, Curved), Chargeability (Rechargeable, Single-Use), Application (Packaging, Smart Card, Wearable Devices, Consumer Electronics, Medical Devices) - Global Forecast to 2022", it was valued at USD 69.6 Million in 2015 and is estimated to be worth USD 958.4 Million by 2022, at a CAGR of 46.6% between 2016 and 2022.
“Smart packaging application held the largest market size in the overall flexible battery market during the forecast period“
The smart packaging application of the flexible battery held the largest market size in terms of value in 2015. Smart packaging includes printed electronics products such as disposable batteries, sensors, printed displays, and circuits as well as other electronic features such as anti-theft tags, RFID tags, and smart labels. The packaging requirements have been growing over the years as the packaging of products has a direct impact on customers’ decisions. Therefore, packaging manufacturers are integrating sound and display text and interactive media in packages using flexible power sources. These factors are driving the growth of the market for the smart packaging application of the flexible battery market during the forecast period.
“Thin-film battery segment to hold the largest share and grow at the highest rate by 2022”
The thin-film battery type is expected to dominate the global flexible battery market between 2016 and 2022. Thin-film batteries are used widely in applications such as smart packaging, smart cards, wearable devices, and medical devices. The trend of miniaturization in the products used in these applications has increased the demand for thin-film batteries, thereby driving the growth of thin-film battery market significantly. Thin-film batteries have a low self-discharge rate and cost less than lithium polymer batteries. Thus, they have a huge demand in electronics devices, thereby driving the growth of the thin-film flexible battery market.
“APAC expected to grow at the highest rate between 2016 and 2022”
APAC is expected to be the fastest-growing market for flexible battery during the forecast period. Major consumer electronics manufacturers in this region are innovating their product designs to run on thin power sources for compatibility with the flexible designs of their products. Thus, the advancement of technology in the smart packaging, consumer electronics sector, and the growing popularity of wearable devices in this region ate the major factors fueling the growth of the flexible battery market in APAC. Moreover, the penetration of Internet of Things (IoT) in medical devices and the miniaturization of wireless devices would further drive the demand for thin and flexible batteries in this region.
