The signs are still set for growth in the organic and printed electronics industry. This is the clear message to result from the latest business climate survey conducted by the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association). 80% of survey participants expect the industry to continue its positive development in the coming year. The results of the survey, carried out for the seventh time, were presented by OE-A Chair Dr Jeremy Burroughes to the international press at LOPEC 2017 – the leading international trade fair and conference for organic and printed electronics – in Munich, Germany.
From March 28 to 30, 2017, LOPEC proved in Munich, Germany, that the interest in printed electronics continues to grow. The ninth edition of the international exhibition for printed electronics set new records across the board, while also showcasing numerous world-firsts. Concurrently, the LOPEC Conference impressed with a top-class, highly international line-up, featuring speakers from Samsung and the European Commission.
Already in its seventh year, OE-A organizes the OE-A Competition for its members from all the different sectors of organic and printed electronics. Numerous international companies, research institutes and universities take part in this annual competition to present their ideas, prototypes, and concepts.
