Organic Electronics: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – The global market for organic electronics (organic plastics/polymers) is poised to display exponential growth driven by increasing applications in conventional and niche areas, along with expanding in numerous application areas. Low cost for fabrication and high degree of flexibility are the two key factors driving the demand for organic electronics and its increasing penetration in the mainstream market. The use of organic polymer in several applications is beneficial, as they are more flexible, lighter, and economical when compared to inorganic electronics. Over the years, organic electronics have moved beyond displays and now can be printed on almost any substrate including paper, fabric, flexible plastics and even leather. Traditional thermal deposition techniques are witnessing advancements and are being used in a more effective manner than ever before in the fabrication of OE products.

The organic electronics value chain comprises research institutes, universities, material suppliers, equipment manufacturers, device manufacturers, end-users as well as service providers. Globally, more than 3000 companies involved in electronics, printing and materials and packaging are focusing on printed, organic and flexible electronics. Organic electronics are also increasingly being deployed for achieving a sustainable economic growth, since they exhibit a comparatively lesser environmental impact compared to other technologies, particularly in the generation of electricity. One of the latest developments in the industry includes the usage of biodegradable and biocompatible, unique materials including biodegradable plastics and fabrics such as silk for manufacturing eco-friendly green electronic devices.

Driven by the rapid developmental strides in the end-use sectors of OLEDs, RFID Tags and photovoltaics among several others, the global market for printed electronics is all set to witness sturdy growth in the future. The manufacturing base of organic electronics is fast expanding beyond OLEDs to other OE products including display backplanes and solar panels. Nevertheless, the market for Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) Displays continues to play a prominent role in the current context, as stated by the new market research report. The segment commands a dominant position as the largest end-use application market for organic electronics, with unique features such as low energy consumption, brightness, and high-speed performance increasing deployment. On the other hand, other emerging end-use markets including OTFT Backplanes and RFID Tags are being looked upon as the future of organic electronics.

Major players in the market include AGC Seimi Chemical Co., Ltd, Aixtron AG, BASF Future Business GmbH, Cambridge Display Technology Ltd., Corning Incorporated, E Ink Corporation, E. I. Du Pont de Nemours and Company, Eastman Kodak Company, eMagin Corporation, H.C. Starck GmbH, Merck KGaA, OSRAM GmbH, Poly-Optical Products, Inc., Plastic Logic, Samsung SDI Co., Ltd., Seiko Epson Corp., among others.

The research report titled “Organic Electronics: A Global Strategic Business Report” announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., provides an insight into the organic electronics and materials industry and a comprehensive review of application markets along with major market trends and issues, product introductions, recent industry activity, and profiles of market players worldwide. Analytics are presented in value (US$) terms for key application areas including OLED Displays, OLED Lighting, RFID Tags, OTFT Backplanes, TFPV/Organic Photovoltaic, and Sensors.
