The results of the recent 2023 OE-A Business Climate Survey demonstrate expectations of continued growth, consistent with projections made in the 2022 survey. For 2023 the responding association members anticipate sales revenue increases of 18 percent for the Flexible and Printed Electronics Industry. The outlook for 2024 is promising as well with an estimated growth of 19 percent.
Smart skis that “feel” the vibrations of a downhill run, a flying 3-D printed drone, a sensing glove, a biosensor test kit that helps to avoid virus spreading and some more inspiring ideas play a major role in this year’s “OE-A Competition”. This yearly competition run by the OE-A, part of VDMA, fosters and challenges engineers and designers to present their printed electronics innovations to the world. At LOPEC 2023, the leading international exhibition and conference of printed electronics, from 28 February to 2 March at ICM, Messe München, all projects are showcased at the OE-A booth.
