This research service (RS) covers printing techniques that help in addressing challenges faced by conventional electronics. The novel printing techniques for organic electronics addresses several challenges, such as, cost efficiency, mass production, improved accuracy, and high resolution. The end product is thin, flexible, lightweight and environment friendly. The study discusses in detail the market implications and business opportunities of the varied printing techniques intended for organic electronic applications.
Scope of Study
The research service identifies the opportunities, and the drivers and challenges in printing technologies for organic electronics. The report uses value chain analysis to provide information about the key players in industry.
Technology Areas Covered
The study covers different type of printing technologies, such as, gravure, inkjet, flexography, and lithograph.
The RS is segmented into three different markets—Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America.
Applications for printed electronics are growing and can be used in a wide range of industries. Markets have already witnessed the contribution of printing technologies in photovoltaic, light-emitting displays, and radio frequency identification (RFID), whereas smart textiles and thin-film batteries are emerging owing to the increasing demand for cost efficient devices
The target audience for printing technologies is growing at a fast pace. Industries such as lighting and consumer electronics have been major areas of application in the past, whereas industries such as medical, textiles, logistics, energy and automation are emerging applications for organic electronics.
Step 1: To provide a thorough analysis of each topic, Technical Insights’ analysts perform a review of patents to become familiar with the major developers and commercial participants and their processes.
Step 2: Building on the patent search, the analysts review abstracts to identify key scientific and technical papers that provide insights into key industry participants and the technical processes on which they work.
Step 3: The analysts then create a detailed questionnaire with content created to address the research objectives of the study, which functions as a guide during the interview process. While the analysts use structured questionnaires to guarantee coverage of all the desired issues, they also conduct interviews in a conversational style. This approach results in a more thorough exchange of views with the respondents, and offers greater insight into the relevant issues than more structured interviews may provide.
Step 4: The analysts conduct primary research with key industry participants and technology developers to obtain the required content. Interviews are completed with sources located throughout the world in universities, national laboratories, governmental and regulatory bodies, trade associations, and end-user companies, among other key organizations. Our analysts contact the major commercial participants to find out about the advantages and disadvantages of processes and the drivers and challenges behind technologies and applications. Our analysts talk to the principal developers, researchers, engineers, business developers, analysts, strategic planners, and marketing experts, among other professionals.
Step 5: The project management and research team reviews and analyzes the research data that are gathered and adds its recommendations to the draft of the final study. Having conducted both published studies and custom proprietary research covering many types of new and emerging technology activities as well as worldwide industry analysis, the management and research team adds its perspective and experience to provide an accurate, timely analysis. The analysts then prepare written final research services for each project and sometimes present Key Findings in analyst briefings to clients.
