Plastic Electronics Conference: Overcoming Market and Financial Barriers
Thursday 10 February 2011, 10:30am
Intellect Conference Suite, 10-12 Russell Square, London, WC1B 5EE
A joint event by Intellect Technology Trade Association and ESP KTN
The market for plastic (or printed) electronics has finally become reality, albeit not at the rate that many have predicted. Barriers to exponential growth include the inability to lower costs at the rate that is required and the scale-up of production to enable massmanufacturing with high yield. With only niche applications to date, plastic electronics has only realised a fraction of its potential impact.
The most immediate applications concern RFID and OLED displays. These technologies are penetrating a wide number of customer applications, and as costs decline and performance improves, will justify customers switching to and, in many cases, implementing entirely new design solutions. Others applications, such as intelligent packaging, solar energy and lighting, are emerging slowly and represent great potential.
There has been a lot of hype and speculation about the impact of plastic electronics over the last few years. To assist your evaluation of the future direction of this fascinating sector, Intellect and ESP KTN are pleased to present the first Plastic Electronics Conference: overcoming market and financial barriers. The key objective of this event is to provide a macroeconomic understanding of the plastic electronics market and to provide companies (often technology start-ups) with intelligence on how to market their prototypes and raise funds with banks and private equities.
