With a projected sales revenue growth of 13%, 2017 will be a very successful year for OE-A members. This outlook even exceeds the expectations of the previous survey, carried out earlier this year, with 5 percentage points. For 2018, a continuation of the positive trend in the organic and printed electronics industry is expected. Companies anticipate further advancement and revenue growth of 16% along the entire value chain.
OE-A members in particular target the following sectors: consumer electronics, medical and pharmaceutical, automotive, lighting, energy and packaging. “We especially see a growing interest in the industry sectors mobility and automotive as well as medical and pharmaceutical,” said Dr. Klaus Hecker, OE-A managing director. “These are also the focus topics of LOPEC 2018, for both the exhibition as well as the conference.”
