Electronic skin, or e-skin, is a flexible, self-healing and wearable product consisting of a stretchable network of sensors and electronics to replicate the functioning of human or animal skin. It senses heat, pressure and temperature through chemical, tactile and electrophysiological sensors, actuators, processors and communication units to respond to the ecological stimuli. These patches aid in monitoring the vital signs of the body with minimal or no discomfort to the user. They are also connected with mobile operating systems, which are utilized in health surveillance devices, such as fitness bands and watches. As a result, electronic skin finds extensive application for humanoids, artificial prosthetics, biomedical instrumentation and cyber-physical systems.
The widespread adoption of electronic wearable devices, robotics, and prosthetics among the masses is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, significant improvements in the healthcare infrastructure, especially in the developing economies, are providing a thrust to the market growth. Electronic skin is widely used for real-time and continuous monitoring of body temperature, tissue pressure, electrolyte balance, disease-related biomarkers and body motion for on-body health and physiological check-ups. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the development of 3D printed and artificial intelligence (AI)-integrated lightning and sweating electronic skins, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. Product manufacturers are also emphasizing on using green materials while developing electronic skins to minimize the carbon emissions. Other factors, including rising expenditure capacities of the consumers, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities in the field of artificial skin generation, are anticipated to drive the market further.
