Stretchable Electronics Technology Market Potential Reviewed in New Study Published at

London, UK (PRWEB) April 17, 2012

Stretchable electronics has been one of the least exploited, but most researched sectors of the new electronics over the past decade. Commercialization has been elusive and a number of manufacturers have left the scene, though the participants see huge potential.


The stretchable electronics applications targeted are mainly in healthcare, including health-related monitoring and management for military purposes and sport. Approximately 40% of the research and commercialization of stretchable electronics takes place in the USA, but countries like the UK, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Korea and Japan are also packing a punch.


New research study Stretchable Electronics Comes to Market worked out by IDTechEx has been recently published by Market Publishers Ltd.
