VOLUME MANUFACTURING FOR PRINTED AND FLEXIBLE ELECTRONICS WILL SOON BE ENABLED BY EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS PROVIDERS

For now, organic electronics are made on rigid substrates and mainly manufactured using vapor deposition techniques, which are costly, generally require high temperatures and generate significant product waste. Printed and flexible electronics has been a very hot topic in this past decade, holding the promise of a tremendous new market. While the printing of electronics is mainly a way to produce large electronic surfaces and reduce manufacturing costs, flexibility will provide higher robustness to the end products as well as new features, designs and shapes.

In our report, we explain how this market will be addressed by players that do not necessarily come from the semiconductor field. In this emerging part of the electronics industry, chemical companies and printing equipment companies are the players that will enable volume manufacturing and will leverage technical bottlenecks.

EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS MARKET WILL SOON START THEIR RAMP-UP TO LARGE VOLUMES WITH A GROWTH STARTING IN 2015

In this report, we analyze, estimate and forecast the equipment and material markets for printed and flexible electronics. Equipment and materials markets are still low, and will remain so over the next several years. Nevertheless the start of the industry ramp up is expected before 2020. This start is expected in 2018 for materials. It will be driven by the OLED industry that will represent a global market of almost $ 170M in 2020 (OLED only). The equipment market will start its ramp up sooner than materials, as device manufacturers will have to prepare for upcoming volumes. Our model for equipment forecasts is based on existing and future projects in printed and flexible electronics. Today it is unclear which deposition process will be used and companies often buy cluster tools with different deposition processes inside. In our scenario, ramp up is expected to start in 2015, thanks to conformable OLED displays, growing to over $1.3B in 2020 for the OLED industry alone.

In our materials forecast, our investigations have focused on typical materials and chemistries used for the manufacturing of: electrodes / active organic layers (emitting compounds, photoactive, materials) / charge transport materials / encapsulation systems.
