Flexible displays have the potential to enable sensors and systems that change our lives. In some areas, they already do.
Classified as one of America’s top export industries, the U.S. semiconductor market is ever-growing, with total sales just shy of $190 billion in 2017.
From operating air conditioners to improving automobiles, semiconductors enable the systems that support our everyday life. Despite breakthroughs, often the first rush of disruptive technologies is followed by years of development, refinement and experimentation.
Below, we provide an overview of the semiconductor market and identify the top three innovations making a big impact on semiconductor companies now and in the future.
If you follow the latest in emerging materials, components and devices, it’s likely you’ve heard the term flexible electronics.
While flexible electronics have been in the making for more than a decade, there’s no telling what the future holds. Despite advances in research and development, there are still questions surrounding the complexity of this technology.
To break it down to the basics, we’re sharing the top three things you should know about flexible electronics below.
A top priority for any business is to create value, and the semiconductor industry is no exception.
Within the first quarter of 2018, the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) reported worldwide semiconductor sales reached $111.1 billion—up 20 percent from 2017. A key driver of economic strength, semiconductors have played a significant role in technological innovation. In fact, semiconductors enable the systems and products we use every day.
With competition high, semiconductor companies work hard to create value at each stage of the supply chain. Below, we explain how top performers can deploy value-driven business in the semiconductor industry.
Flexible electronics have been in the works for decades. However, recent reports prove flexible electronics are becoming a reality in many commercial applications.
In fact, Markets and Markets projects the flexible electronics market to grow from $23.92 billion in 2018 to $40.37 billion by 2023. The convergence of these technologies including wearable devices and foldable displays has enabled consumers to stay connected in real time while going about their lives. But the benefits don’t stop there.
Did you know the properties of semiconductor materials are customizable? Just like many other industrial products, the materials used in microelectronics can be tailored for specific purposes.
