The shrinking size requirement in consumer electronics products, along with higher power saving potential of organic printed transistor, and memory are fueling its demand in lighting, signage, displays, electronic products, smart packaging, medical disposables, and smart labels. Low cost technology, and contact-less printing requirement are the important driving factors for the organic printed transistor and memory market from the supplier’s perspective.
The application of organic printed transistor and memory has grown considerably, ever since its commercialization in 2009. The growth of the organic printed transistor and memory market, in the coming decade is expected to be very similar to the growth of silicon chip market in last decade. The extensive research and development activities (R&D) by companies are expected to increase the efficiency and capacity of organic printed transistor in the coming years. Technologically advanced regions such as Taiwan, Japan, USA, Germany, and the U.K. are expected to lead the organic printed transistor and memory market, during the forecast period. However, operational limitations such as lower frequency range and small memory capacity of organic printed transistor and memory are expected to hinder its demand, from high end consumer electronic product.
The organic transistors are referred to a transistor, whose semiconducting layers are made up of organic molecules, or polymers. Based on the semiconductor material, the global organic printed transistor and memory market can be segmented, as small molecule based, and polymer based. On the basis of design the global organic printed transistor market can be segmented, as top-gate electrode and bottom-gate electrode. Based on applications the global organic printed transistor and memory market can be broadly classified, as display drivers, and radio-frequency identification (RFID), and others. On the basis of technology, the global organic printed transistor market can be segmented, as N-type organic printed transistor, and P-type organic printed transistor.
The mass manufacturing capacity of organic printed transistor and memory is an important factor for its market penetration. The advancement in printed electronics technology has facilitated a resolution, and register precision of as low as 20 µm. Moreover, the printing capacity for electronics has grown to 500 meter/minute, which can equal the global annual chip production volume within an hour. Till date the flexible display devices is the major target industry for organic printed transistor and memory market; nevertheless emerging industries such as smart labels, wearable electronics, and smart toys lay potential opportunities for the organic printed transistor and memory market, during forecast period. On the other hand, undesirable properties of organic solvents, such as homogeneous nature of organic material and solvent is hindering the technical properties of the printed transistor, which in turn, is limiting its market penetration in many new potential applications.
North America accounted for the largest market of organic printed transistor and memory market, in 2014. The high market penetration of organic printed transistor and memory in North American market is attributed to its high adoption, in flexible display manufacturing. Among regions, Europe is expected to grow at the highest pace, during next five to six years. The organic printed transistor and memory market in Asia Pacific is expected to be driven by its increasing demand from consumer electronics, wearable, and signage.
Some of the competitors in the organic printed transistor and memory market are FUJITSU, The Hewlett-Packard Company, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., SAP technology, Sony Corporation, Xerox Corporation, AU Optronics Corp., CANON INC., and DaiNippon Printing.
