The biannual OE-A Business Climate Survey brought insightful information on the organic and printed ilectronics industry. For the industry, 2015 will be a very successful year as they foresee their sales revenue to grow with 13%. This is an increase of 2 percentage points compared to the last survey, implemented earlier this year. With an expected average increase in sales revenue of 18% in 2016, the survey participants furthermore strongly believe that this positive trend continues, and this along the entire value chain as well as in all regions.
OE-A members especially focus on major industries including consumer electronics, medical and pharmaceutical, automotive and energy.
“These industries continue to play an important role as they use more and more the organic and printed electronics technology in various (end-)products. And with good reason, as the positive characteristics of this innovative technology – ranging from ultra-thin and lightweight, to freeform and economical – enables countless application possibilities of which wearables are a perfect example,” said OE-A chairman Jeremy Burroughes.
