Home > Press > NanoMarkets Announces Release of Latest Report on Emerging Market for Printed Organic Logic and Memory

Abstract:
Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets announces the release of its latest report on the emerging organic/printed logic and memory market, titled "Markets for OTFTs, OFETs and Organic Memory - 2012." The report analyzes the opportunities for materials, component, and device makers in the OTFT/OFET and organic nonvolatile memory (ONVM) value chain over the next eight years. NanoMarkets estimates that the total market value of OTFT/OFET and ONVM components will grow to nearly $1B (US) in revenues by 2018. Over the same time period, the value of the market for printed electronics devices enabled by these OTFT/OFET and ONVM components will reach $4.6B.

About the Report:

This latest NanoMarkets report provides an analysis and forecast of the OTFT/OFET and ONVM market over the next eight years. Applications covered include smart packaging, brand protection, security, smartcards, distribution tagging and RFID, interactive media, disposable electronics, and (flexible) display backplanes. The report examines some of the latest market strategies, products and technical developments in materials, and it identifies how performance and manufacturing improvements are finally improving the prospects for printed/organic electronics.

As in all NanoMarkets reports, this report contains granular eight-year forecasts of OTFT/OFET and ONVM shipments in both unit and value terms, with breakouts by material type (small molecule vs. polymer) deposition technology (vapor vs. solution processing), and by panel type (rigid vs. flexible). Material categories discussed include organic and/or polymeric semiconductors, ferroelectric materials, dielectrics, and electrodes.

Key players mentioned in the report include Acreo, BASF, Bemis, Fujifilm Dimatix, Hewlett Packard, Heraeus, Holst Centre, InkTec, JAPERA, LG, Merck/EMD, OE-A, Optomec, PARC, PEA, Polyera, PolyIC, Qolpac, Samsung, Solvay, Sony, Thin Film Electronics, Toppan Printing, and others.

From the Report:

A decade ago, OTFTs/OFETs and ONVMs were once darlings of the advanced materials sector, but the early hype largely dissipated as their huge potential was in stark contrast to their disappointing reality. Materials performance was low and manufacturing proved more difficult, and more costly, than originally expected. But today there are signs that things may be turning around. There is renewed interest and commercialization activity in this sector, and NanoMarkets believes that the industry is poised to take off in the 2014-2015 timeframe, built upon better materials and processes, meaningful collaboration between players, and the launch of new products that will add credibility to the whole sector.

But NanoMarkets cautions that commercial success will only happen if suppliers can help to close the remaining technology - and cost - gaps that could hold back the realization of low-cost/high volume fabrication. Players in this industry can thus carve out competitive advantages in the following areas: improved material performance, especially with respect to mobility, because while improvements have been made, still more are needed; development of reliable and easy-to-use inks and coatings, as well as the optimization of suitable printing or solution patterning methods for them; and establishment of a well-integrated manufacturing and supply chain that brings all of the elements together to provide sellable products to end-users.
