The highest growth industry has arrived in the worldâ€™s highest growth market. Itâ€™s difficult not to get excited about Plastic Electronics in Asia!
Asia is already the home of the majority of the worldâ€™s electronics manufacturing from the cheapest toy to the most sophisticated display screens. This ensures that the manufacturing capabilities, technical expertise and the research funds are already situated in Asia. Now, a growing affluent consumer base in China and beyond is looking to catch up with more established markets fuelling fast growth for high performance, low cost portable and flexible electronic devices.
Enter plastic electronics, an industry set to grow at 32% CAGR to a $4.3b market by 2010 source. With such aggressive growth this technology is igniting the Asian electronics industry in a myriad of ways.
The conference agenda will look at each of these key markets, starting with an overview by senior industry figures in the plenary session. This will include David Fyfe, Cambridge Display Technology, Gildas Sorin from Novaled and HK Chung from Samsung SDI.
To attempt to do justice to the wide range of industry and academic research across many different sectors including OLEDâ€™s, photovoltaics and RFID, The Plastic Electronics Foundation have devised a programme that offers 50 speakers across 5 parallel symposia to ensure each of these exciting developments are covered
Tailor your conferenceâ€¦the symposia
Batteries: This core enabling technology holds the key to portable devices; small, flexible, light weight and durable power enabled by printed and polymer batteries are essential to the overall performance and success of plastic electronics. This session includes new battery manufacturers and leading academics presenting the latest research in the area
Photovoltaics: As with batteries, power is a key enabling technology, photovoltaics offer the advantage of being a cheap source of on going power and fit with increasing demand for renewable and sustainable power sources. Leading players in flexible and organic solar cells will present the latest on power conversion and efficiency
Displays: OLEDâ€™s have seen a great deal of hype in recent years but to the relief of investors, commercial applications are finally becoming a reality. Displays are one of the leading application areas and speakers from Samsung and Sony will demonstrate practical uses in mainstream consumer electronics
Lighting and Signage: Printed lighting has been an ambition for some time but there are many technical hurdles. World renowned Professor Kido from Yamagata University will introduce a compelling line up of leading experts to assess the latest progress in this area
Tags and Labels: RFID offers the chance to provide unique identification remotely and so has huge potential in everything from ID documents to packaging. Printing the tags will make them cheaper and broaden their application range. This session introduced by Gyoujin Cho from Paru Corporation will demonstrate some of the latest developments in this sector
Who should attend:
â€¢ Consumer electronics, displays, packaging, textiles, and other potential end-users â€“ whether this is a first introduction to the exciting world of printed electronics, or youâ€™re already involved, youâ€™ll discover how this technology can be the perfect way to improve efficiency and add value to your product
â€¢ Developers of RFID, OLEDs and photovoltaics â€“ update your knowledge and critically examine the very latest research and innovations that can transform your printed electronic solution
â€¢ OEMâ€™s and technology start-ups â€“ take this unique opportunity to meet and discuss your developments with key players in the electronics industry
â€¢ Printers and press suppliers â€“ discover the opportunities and understand the strategies for being part of the most disruptive technology in printing in the modern world. Identify which printing methods will hold the key to the future of this lucrative market
