Market Trends

The demand to “do more with less” is ubiquitous and video is king; 80% of all internet traffic is video related according to Cisco Systems. As a result 2-for-1 foldable portable electronics such as SmartPhone/Tablet, Tablet/Laptop and Laptop/Television devices will continue to grow in popularity. The trend towards new technology to enable larger viewing areas is evidenced by the ongoing evolution of the first 12” tube-screen television becoming today’s largest 110” flat screen TV. The demand for conveniently portable large scale video is enabled by clear, durable, light-weight materials suitable for electronics applications. To satisfy these needs, electronic designers and manufacturers are moving to bendable, foldable displays and devices.

Together with our materials and expertise, we can help electronics designers and manufacturers achieve the durable-flexible-conformable layers and the proper conductive ink receptive coatings bendable display screens require.
