OE-A hosts printed electronics competition

What do an artificial triceps, a smart gear selector and an indoor air quality meter have in common? Essential parts consist of organic and printed electronics. And they are among the 22 entries taking part in the “OE-A Competition 2021”, which the international VDMA working group OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association) organizes every year.


Printed electronics: Significant decline in sales due to Corona pandemic

The organic and printed electronics industry is also severely affected by the Covid19 pandemic, according to the latest business climate survey by the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association). While the figures at the beginning of the year were still very positive with a forecast sales increase of 8 percent, the survey participants now expect a sales loss of 20 percent this year. Main reasons: Cancellations of orders and a significantly reduced order intake due to the Corona pandemic.
