Printed biosensors expected to lead the printed sensors market
The large market share of printed biosensors is attributed to the high demand for glucose test strips which are used for diabetes monitoring and are the most matured type of printed sensors. Moreover, the rapid technological advancements, growing demand for glucose monitoring in diabetic patients, and rising demand for home-based point-of-care devices are the significant growth drivers for the printed biosensors market. In addition to this, the growing integration of biosensors in consumer electronics and environmental monitoring applications also contributes to the large market share of the printed biosensors market.
Smart packaging application in printed sensors market is expected to grow at a high rate
Printed sensors Market play a major role in smart packaging as they help manufacturers to keep track of their inventories. They are also used to monitor temperature, humidity, and gas for sensitive products, especially food and beverages. Moreover, given the rise in the adoption of smart packaging across the globe to increase the visibility, hygiene, quality, and safety of the product, there is a demand for printed sensors.
Printed Sensors market in Europe held the largest market share
Europe is expected to hold the largest market share and dominate the printed sensors market owing to the funding granted by the European Union which motivates collaborations between academia and the industry by funding associated projects for the development of various printed sensors. Some of the projects funded by the European Union are Smart Integrated Miniaturized Sensor Systems (SIMS), Roll-to-Roll Paper Sensors (ROPAS) project, FlexSmell project, and 3PLAST project among others. Moreover, the major printed sensor manufacturers, such as ISORG (France), Thin Film Electronics ASA (Norway), Peratech Holdco Ltd (U.K.), and Canatu Oy (Finland) among others, based in various countries in the European region are actively involved in new product launches, acquisitions, and partnerships to expand their market reach.
