In its new report The Future of High-Barrier Films and Coatings for Printed Electronics to 2021 Smithers Pira critically analyses a market worth $62 million and accounting for five million square metres in 2016. This will rise at a CAGR of 26% by value and 39% by volume to create a market worth $192 million and 27 million square metres in 2021. In 2016 the core markets by value for barrier films are quantum dot enhanced displays, followed by the rigid OLED displays used in mobile smart devices. By 2021 the latter markets will have transitioned to flexible OLED displays creating an onus on new performance barrier solutions.
