Flexible Electronics for Automotive Applications

May 27, 2021
Flexible Electronics for Automotive Applications
The automotive industry is currently transitioning to both electric and autonomous vehicles, creating extensive opportunities for many new technologies. Printed/flexible electronics are particularly well suited to automotive applications, with opportunities across the vehicle interior, exterior and powertrain. For example, the ability to make electronics on thin flexible substrates enables weight to be reduced, a key consideration for electric vehicles, while the conformality associated with flexible electronics is highly suited to emerging interior design trends in which organic curves replace flat surfaces.
In this webinar Dr Matthew Dyson, a Technology Analyst at IDTechEx specializing in printed/flexible electronics, will discuss a wide range of emerging applications for printed/flexible electronics technologies within the automotive sector, along with a forecast adoption timeline.
Specific automotive applications discussed in the webinar will include:
  • Flexible heaters and sensors for battery management
  • Printed and flexible touch sensors for switches
  • In-mold electronics and printing wiring onto 3D surfaces
  • Transparent heaters
  • Flexible displays and lighting
More detailed information, including detailed technical analysis market forecasts, application case studies, company profiles, and assessment of technological and commercial readiness levels, is given in our brand-new report "Printed and Flexible Electronics for Automotive Applications 2021-2031: Technologies and Markets".
Furthermore, IDTechEx offers a wide range of reports on relevant aspects of printed/flexible electronics, such as "Printed and Flexible Sensors 2020-2030: Technologies, Players, Forecasts" and "Flexible Hybrid Electronics 2020-2030: Applications, Challenges, Innovations and Forecasts".
