66 PCB007 MAGAZINE I OCTOBER 2018 'Optical Rocket' Created with Intense Laser Light E In a recent experiment at the University of Ne- braska–Lincoln, plasma electrons in the paths of intense laser light pulses were almost in- stantly accelerated close to the speed of light. Automated Guided Vehicles Market Size at $7.3 Billion by 2025 E The global automated guided vehicles (AGV) market size is expected to reach $7.3 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a 16.5% CAGR over the forecast period. Flexible PCB Market to Reach $27.6 Billion by 2023 E Flexible printed circuit board market is expect- ed to increase from $13.5 billion in 2016, to $27.6 billion in 2023, at a CAGR of 10.7% from 2017 to 2023. 3D Print Colloidal Crystals E MIT engineers have united the principles of self-assembly and 3D printing using a new technique, which they highlight today in the journal Advanced Materials. Wearables to See Slower Growth in 2018 Before Ramping Up Again Through 2022 E The worldwide wearables market is forecast to ship 122.6 million units in 2018, up 6.2% from the 115.4 million units shipped in 2017, accord- ing to IDC. 3D Printed Electronics Market to Touch $3.915B by 2026 E The global 3D printed electronics market is expected to reach $3.915 billion by 2026. The market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 44.46% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Medical Electronics—Medicine in a Digital World E The health industry is going through a period of dramatic change. We are seeing more and more digital solutions throughout the patient journey— at every stage from prevention and diagnosis to treatment. Medicine 4.0 can only work on the ba - sis of collaborative efforts at the point where the medical and engineering disciplines overlap. Semiconductor IP Market to Reach Over $9B by 2026 E The global semiconductor intellectual property market is expected to reach $9.4 billion by 2026, according to a new market research report pub- lished by Transparency Market Research titled Semiconductor Intellectual Property Market— Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2018–2026. Global Semiconductor Sales Increase 17.4% Year-to-Year in July E The SIA, representing U.S. leadership in semi- conductor manufacturing, design, and re- search, today announced worldwide sales of semiconductors reached $39.5 billion for the month of July 2018, an increase of 17.4% com- pared to the July 2017 total of $33.6 billion. Shrinking Semiconductor Lasers to the Nanoscale E A tiny laser comprising an array of nanoscale semiconductor cylinders has been made by an all-A*STAR team1. This is the first time that lasing has been achieved in non-metallic nano- structures, and it promises to lead to miniature lasers usable in a wide range of optoelectron- ic devices.
