VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland announces the results of a study investigating how changing the manufacturing of electronics can improve their environmental impact. For example, one of the project’s most significant findings showed that environmental impact could be reduced by 86% when additive printing methods are used to create flexible electronic components, as reported in detail by LUT University.
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.
LOPEC 2023 hosted more exhibitors than ever before: 168 exhibitors from 25 countries and more than 2300 visitors from 43 countries attended the ICM – International Congress Center Messe München from 28 February to 2 March. Here, the industry’s leading exhibition and most important conference highlighted the entire spectrum of flexible, organic and printed electronics, and showed the potential that lies in this key technology.
