Technology Areas

Printed sensors are the next generation of sensors that can be produced through high volume and automated additive manufacturing processes. They are the crucial piece to add low-cost and low-power intelligence to everyday objects for the Internet of Things. Printed sensors are already common in the market in the form of the test strips used in blood glucose monitors by those suffering from diabetes. But the consumer and industry applications are far-reaching. Printed sensors include biosensors, capacitive sensors, piezoresistive sensors, piezoelectric sensors, photodetectors, temperature sensors, humidity sensors and gas sensors. IDTechEx forecasts the market for fully printed sensors will pass US$8 billion by 2025.
