Research and Markets: Global Market for Organic Electronics and Electrics - $650 Million in 2005 to $30 Billion in 2015

It's already established that organic electronics will be a $30 billion business in 2015 mainly due to logic, displays and lighting. It will be a $250 billion business in 2025, with at least ten billion dollars sales from logic/ memory, OLED displays for electronic products, OLED billboard, signage etc, non-emissive organic displays, OLED lighting, batteries and photovoltaics, with sensors almost at that level. And almost all of these products will be printed, flexible, laminar constructions using the same or similar processes. Important other products such as laminar organic fuel cells and organic electrostatic and RF protection are also in the forecasts.

There are few other technologies that will have such an impact on industry in the next twenty years. Organic electronics in the form of smart packaging, electronic billboards, posters, signage and electronic books will impact the conventional printing and publishing industry. Organic lighting will severely dent sales of both incandescent and fluorescent lighting in the second decade from now.
