Flexible Heater Market Synopsis


The global flexible heater market was valued at USD 905.1 million in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 1,424.6 million by the end of the forecast period at a CAGR of 8.1%.


A flexible heater is an electronic device which is generally used to provide a fixed amount of heating to any surface it is attached. A flexible heater, as its name suggests, can be shaped according to the surface to be applied on. These devices are present in various types and formations such as silicone rubber-based, polyimide film heaters and others. Among these, the silicone rubber-based flexible heater is the most widely used owing to its roughness, accuracy, and resistance to chemical substances. The major applications of flexible heaters can be seen in consumer electronics, and food processing industry, aerospace & defense sector, and oil & gas industry. One of the major factors ase fueling the demand for flexible heaters is the increase in portable electronic battery operated devices. With the minimization of devices, the durability of heating element is essential.


The other factors that increase the market growth of flexible heaters are the technologically advanced properties and flexible formation of heaters, the rising application of heating devices in various industrial sectors, and rising adoption of flexible heaters in healthcare and medical applications. However, the higher operational costs of flexible heaters limit the market growth. Moreover, flexible heaters are incapable of functioning in extreme environments is a factor limiting the market growth. Although the flexible heater market is expected to grow at a steady pace, the increasing demand from electronics and semiconductor industry is posing opportunities for flexible heaters market.
