Flexible barrier films are flexible substrates or barriers designed to protect the electronic components such as electronic circuits, transistors, and others from the degradation caused by oxygen, moisture, and other environmental factors. They provide lightweight, robust, and versatile application range without compromising with the performance of the electronic component it protects. Thus, the flexible barrier films provide encapsulation to organic, flexible, and printed electronics without affecting its flexibility, functionality, printability, and performance.
Increase in demand for flexible, organic, and printed electronics devices drive the market. There are non-intermittent innovations and developments made in the field of substrate materials to provide transparent, flexible, and other permeability properties to the electronic devices. Since, the printed electronics technology is used in various applications such as radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags, monitoring, data storage, and other applications, the need to protect their components fuel the market for exponential growth. However, as the market is in its introductory phase and the films are quite expensive to design and develop, the exponential growth of the market is hindered.
