    Achieving mobility, flexibility, biocompatibility, and functional security while lowering the expense and environmental effects are the main objectives for the next generation of wearable electronics. Flexible electronics (FE) is a promising concept which makes it possible to incorporate many technologies into daily life and promote the development of ground-breaking applications. For physically FE, mechanical properties like the bending radius and the overall thickness are crucial. This study's fundamental goal is to provide a thorough summary of the development, advancement, and applications of FE in diverse fields. The article begins by listing the flexible materials employed during the last few decades in a chronological order. The distinct structural design of flexural electronics is briefly introduced and the processing techniques for producing FE are taken into consideration. The recent developments in flexible electronic are then discussed in relation to the development of materials, such as inorganic and organic substances. The application of materials in the field of flexible electronic is finally discussed, along with potential challenges and future prospects.
