Driving Factors

The rising incidence of both chronic and non-communicable illnesses like cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease will increase the demand for healthcare applications. Also, the rising adoption of IoT in home healthcare systems, that utilizes remote health monitoring such as chronic diseases, with higher independence to examine their own health and wellness, is expected to boost the electronic skin market growth. Furthermore, increased awareness regarding technologies employed in momentary wearable patches is projected to accelerate electronic skin market developments.


Increasing research and advancements regarding the use of artificial skin are also boosting the market forward. For example, experts at the Korea Institute of Mechatronics and Materials in Daejeon, South Korea, successfully created an electronic skin for a prosthetic hand. It measures the direction and strength of force, pressure, or stress to assist a person in recognizing the shape and texture of an object. Additionally, the incorporation of electronic skin into robotics, microbiology, and synthetic prosthesis systems is generating new commercial opportunities.


Restraining Factors

Nevertheless, complicated designs, material decomposition, and high electronic skin production costs are likely to challenge market expansion over the projection period. Damage to electronic skin can occur as a result of stretching, twisting, and temperature variations, which are not always accessible or noticeable. It will have a detrimental effect on the performance and durability of stretchable devices.


Market Segmentation

  • In 2021, the electronic skin patches segment dominated the market with the largest share over the forecast period

Based on product type, the Global Electronic Skin Market is segmented into electronic skinsuit and electronic patches. Among them, the electronic skin patches segment dominated the market with the largest share over the forecast period. Electronic skin patches are composed of multiple elements such as sensors and actuators, as well as adequate processors, communications, and power storage. The utilization of technology innovation in many applications of healthcare devices and personal care has increased the appeal of electronic skin patches. This device keeps patients out of hospitals while simultaneously allowing them to communicate with their physicians. Integrated electronic patches are utilized in diabetic self-monitoring, motion sensing, both inpatient and outpatient remote patient monitoring, and temperature perceiving.


  • In 2021, the stretchable conductors segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period

On the basis of component, the Global Electronic Skin Market is segmented into stretchable circuits, stretchable conductors, photovoltaics system, electroactive polymers, and others. Among these, the stretchable conductors segment is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period owing to developments in stretchable electronic materials as well as devices that have enabled researchers to imitate the self-healing properties of human skin, accelerating the progression of skin-inspired gadgets, biomedical devices, and soft robots. Stretchable conductors have been developed as a result of the remarkable rise of nanotechnology and nanostructured materials technology. To produce high elastic properties in an electronic skin, flexible components such as Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), Ecoflex, and Polyurethane (PU) are generally implemented.
