Estimated at $2 billion in annual sales, electronic and conductive inks and materials are found in a wide range of flexible and printed electronics applications, from photovoltaics and flexible displays to sensors, wearables and smart packaging. Major brands such as Ralph Lauren, L’Oreal and GE, to name a few, are successfully incorporating electronic and conductive inks into their products.
The potential applications for the flexible and printed electronics industry appear to be virtually endless, and electronic and conductive inks are essential to this fast-growing technology.
Electronic and Conductive Ink will be sponsored by the National Association of Printing Ink Manufacturers (NAPIM) and Rodman Media, which produces Ink World and Printed Electronics Now. The conference will feature experts in the field of electronic and conductive inks, as well as allied fields such as equipment, researchers and end-users. Join us to learn about the opportunities ahead for electronic and conductive inks.
