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.
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.
The tradeshow LOPEC will take place at the trade fair centre in Munich, Germany, from 28-30 March 2017, providing information on the latest products, technologies and trends in printed electronics. This year, the automotive industry will be one of the focal points of the international exhibition and conference. Whether in the form of curved displays in the dashboard or OLEDs in vehicle lighting, printed electronic components are opening up a wealth of new design options and are increasing driving comfort levels.
