Flexible electronics represents an area for sustainable economic growth in the U.S. as emerging consumer products seek to find competitive advantages through reduced materials and manufacturing costs along with higher throughput production platforms. As an example, high rate, large area, roll-to-roll manufacturing has been a cornerstone of U.S. innovation and global competitiveness for many years, most notably for the coatings and printing industries. The opportunity now exists to enable value added manufacturing capabilities through the incorporation of emerging nanomaterials and nanomanufacturing approaches with these platforms. While significant challenges exist to transition production lines to address emerging markets, investment in these strategies will provide benefits in terms of economic growth, jobs, and other U.S. interests including security.
