According to the report, global printed electronics market was valued at USD 3.05 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 10.26 billion in 2021, growing at a CAGR of 22.4% between 2016 and 2021.

Printable electronics are electronics systems, components, and sub-systems, which are produced by low-cost coating, patterning and printing processes usually done by solution processable inorganic and/ or organic materials. Printable electronics are usually fabricated on ambient temperature in contrast to conventional semiconductor electronics technologies. These technologies are usually based on high temperature evaporative inorganic metals/oxide substrates or thin film technologies example, Si, metal oxides and III/V. Capital and operating production costs are hence greatly reduced with the help of development of simpler processes which in turn enable new product concepts. The major advantages of printable electronics generally include low cost and the ability to fabricate lightweight flexible.
