Press Release

Printed Electronics Expected to be a $63.28 Billion Dollar Market in 2022


June 4th, 2012

Global Information Inc. would like to present a new market research report, "Printed, Organic & Flexible Electronics: Forecasts, Players & Opportunities 2014-2024" by IDTechEx Ltd..

IDTechEx finds that the market for printed and thin film electronics will be $9.46 billion in 2012. 42.5% of that will be predominately organic electronics - such as OLED display modules. Of the total market in 2012, 30% will be printed. Initially photovoltaics, OLED and e-paper displays grow rapidly, followed by thin film transistor circuits, sensors and batteries. By 2022 the market will be worth $63.28 billion, with 45% printed and 33% on flexible substrates.

Over 3,000 organizations are pursuing printed, organic, flexible electronics, including printing, electronics, materials and packaging companies. While some of these technologies are in use now, with substantial growth in thin film photovoltaics for example, others such as thin film transistors, developed by over 500 organizations, are only becoming commercially available now. The benefits of these new electronics are numerous - ranging from lower cost, improved performance, flexibility, transparency, reliability, better environmental credentials and much more. Many of the applications will be newly created, and where existing electronic and electrical products are impacted, the extent will be varied. This widely referenced IDTechEx report brings it all together, with particular focus on applications and quantative assessment of opportunities.

Printed, Organic & Flexible Electronics Forecasts, Players & Opportunities 2012-2022 covers case studies of where printed electronics has been used, why and the results. It looks at new products that are imminently emerging and their prospects for success. The technical barriers and commercial barriers are listed and prioritized, as well as progress to overcome these. The 306-page report provides ten year forecasts for the following components: Logic and memory; OLED displays; OLED lighting; Electrophoretic displays; Electrochromic displays; Electroluminescent displays; Batteries; Photovoltaics; Sensors; Conductors and more.
