Stretching the limits of printed electronics

Printed Electronics Europe which took place in Berlin last month gave rise to a tide of interesting papers and lectures, all concerned with the adoption of new manufacturing or printing methods able to pattern electronic circuits on various substrates, multiplying use-cases and pushing the envelope of the current printed electronics market.


According to the exhibition organizer IDTechEx, printed and potentially printed electronics will reach $9.4 billion in 2012, of which 30% will be manufactured predominantly through printing techniques, 6% of them on a non-rigid substrate. OLED displays take the bulk of the share, seconded by photovoltaic applications. The research firm expects the overall printed electronics market to grow beyond 60 billion dollars within a decade, with an increasing share of the components obtained through printing processes.
