Home > Press > Organic and Printed Electronics Reach Mass Markets

Abstract:
"Organic and printed electronics has moved into numerous products in our daily lives - often unbeknown to their users. For example, a number of printed electronic parts can already be found in automobiles today. Even in safety-relevant areas such as passenger sensing systems, printed electronics is being utilized millions of times," said Wolfgang Mildner, OE-A Board (Organic and Printed Electronics Association) and Managing Director of PolyIC GmbH & Co. KG, on the occasion of an OE-A press conference at the grand opening of the 5th annual LOPE-C - the leading international convention and conference for this industry, on Wednesday in Munich. "The next steps in the area of automotive are touch sensors and displays, followed by organic LEDs," according to Mildner.

Organic and Printed Electronics Reach Mass Markets

Fifth OE-A Roadmap Unveiled

The new OE-A Roadmap shows the status and trends of applications and technologies. It offers a comprehensive overview of current applications as well as an outlook on future product generations for a total of five areas of application. In the short- and medium term, hybrid systems - combining printed, flexible electronics with building blocks containing classical (silicon) electronics - emerge frequently. Furthermore, the Roadmap identifies requirements for materials and technologies in addition to potential challenges on the path to mass production - so-called "red-brick walls".

Classical Print Products Are Going Interactive

"Organic and printed electronics is a fascinating platform technology that enables new applications. The interactive, light-up cover page of the new OE-A brochure impressively illustrates this," says Mildner. "Consequently, this new technology opens new horizons to publishers, packaging producers and the advertising industry."

Additional information about the Roadmap, the OE-A and its members can be found in the new OE-A brochure which was also introduced at LOPE-C.

About OE-A
The OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association) was founded in December 2004 and is the leading international industry association for organic and printed electronics. The OE-A represents the entire value chain of this emerging industry. Our members are world-class global companies and institutions, ranging from R&D institutes, component and material suppliers to producers and end-users. More than 220 companies from Europe, North America, Asia and Australia are working together to promote the establishment of a competitive production infrastructure for organic and printed electronics. The vision of the OE-A is to build a bridge between science, technology and application. The OE-A is a working group within the German Engineering Federation (VDMA). More than 3,100 member companies from the engineering industry make VDMA the largest industry association in Europe.

The OE-A and Messe Munich International are the hosts of the premier international conference and exhibition, LOPE-C – the Large-area, Organic and Printed Electronics Convention – which addresses end-users, engineers, scientists, manufacturers, and investors. LOPE-C 2014 will be held May 26-28, 2014 at Messe Munich, Germany.
