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). 73 percent of the survey participants expect the industry to continue its positive development in the coming year. The results of the survey, carried out for the ninth time, were presented to the international press at LOPEC 2019 – the international trade fair and conference – in Munich, Germany by newly elected OE-A chair Stan Farnsworth.
The members of the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association) appointed Stan Farnsworth, NovaCentrix, as the new chairman of the board of directors, during the annual general assembly in Munich, Germany. Dr Xioalin Yan, Guangdong JUHUA Printing, is confirmed as vice chairman for Asia. Dr Alain Schumacher, IEE, and Richard Ellinger, American Semiconductor, are elected in their positions as Vice Chairman Europe and North America respectively.
