Global Rugged Electronics Market to Witness a CAGR of 8.4% during 2018-2024

NEW YORK, Aug. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global rugged electronics market was valued at USD 14.9 billion 2017 and is expected to reach USD 26.4 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 8.4%. The growth in the market is primarily attributed to the growing applications of rugged cameras and drones in military and defense. Additionally, growing applications of stretchable electronics in healthcare sector and increasing deployment of grade and blower fans in automotive industry are further propelling the market growth. Moreover, implementation of robots in various end–user industries is also boosting the growth of the global rugged electronics market.

Rugged electronics are the electronic components, portable devices, wearable devices, hardware and other electronic devices that are designed to work in harsh/ challenging environment without affecting the performance. These devices can withstand dust, vibration, extreme temperature, liquid damage among others. Rugged electronics have a wide range of applications in mobile missions, display devices, flexible and stretchable products, health-monitoring wearables, and handheld devices. They require very less maintenance due to lower failure rate, therefore making them more reliable. 

Robust Growth of Rugged Electronics in Defense and Healthcare sector

Defense sector is majorly driving the rugged electronics market owing to the increasing demand for portable computing devices, ground vehicles, and unmanned vehicles. As there is a large amount of data being used for the exchange of information, rugged electronics and portable computing devices are becoming essential. Moreover, rugged portable computing devices are secure and suitable for its operation in wide coverage area, thus creating a huge demand in defense applications. Furthermore, emerging rugged e-skin in healthcare is also fueling the market growth. This technology is capable to maintain both pressure and temperature for self-healing, and can be reused without damaging the tissues. The usage of polymer “polyimine” laced with silver nano particles in e-skins, enables them to withstand stress and makes them recyclable at the room temperature.
