High-volume production of electronics on flexible substrates has been "on the cusp of happening" for the last ten years; and yet the few products that have come onto the market in that time have not lived up to the early hype. So where is the real opportunity in this industry - is there any at all? As technologists and entrepreneurs, how can we separate the hype from the promise, and find the areas we can have the greatest impact? There are strong lessons to be learned from experiences in the semiconductor industry and early printed electronics products, such as membrane switches. A careful and critical look at the industry will show that there is significant growth happening right now in ways and areas that are not talked about, and plenty of opportunity to have a large impact on the world in the near term.
