"Over $100 billion will be spent on materials for wearable electronics over the coming decade."

This report concerns a new market for wearable electronics that awaits those prepared to make formulations and intermediate materials for the new 2D and 3D electronic printing, in-mold electronics and other processes. These and similar processes discussed in the report are being adopted over the coming decade because wearable electronics is changing its form radically, the better to comply with physical and economic needs as the report explains.

The change of materials, suppliers and processes is driven by the fact that the new e-skin patches, e-textiles, stretchable, tightly rollable devices and so on cannot be made with the old "components in a box" approach. Electronics must become transparent or disappear into everyday objects such as spectacle frames for example. Suppliers are needed for formulations and intermediate materials at the heart of this new electronics and electrics. Premium pricing awaits.

The report evaluates how wearable electronics offers these suppliers over $100 billion in cumulative material sales over the coming decade. This report is written for these suppliers as the only comprehensive, up-to-date analysis of the whole scene that focuses on materials needed rather than the finished devices. It has many figures and tables of explanation, analysis and market value prediction for 2015-2025 for both the materials and the complete devices.

The appraisal and prediction is based on interviews worldwide in many languages, searches of proprietary IDTechEx databases and other sources and recent conference presentations, not least those at the successful recent IDTechEx events on the subject. The report is global in reach and sourced by recent extensive travel to universities, research centres, events and companies worldwide. It assesses the activities of key players and it evaluates the gaps in the emerging materials market for wearable electronics and electrics. What is the need for inorganic and organic compounds and composites by molecule and atom and for which allotropes of carbon? In what form such as ink or pre-coated film? It is all here. The report forms part of a series of reports on markets and technology for the booming market for wearable electronics. Respectively they cover the whole business, that for animals and the enabling e-textiles, stretchable electronics, printed electronics, 3D printing, structural electronics and energy harvesting.
