Organic electronics (OE) is one of the most disruptive technologies for electronic circuits and display technologies, and is set to demonstrate high growth over next few years. The technology is expected to have high penetration initially into low-end products such as display backlights in hand held devices and will gradually move up to the ladder with maturity and improved performance. Although the technology is complementary to conventional silicon electronics, the ability to produce flexible circuits will allow the organic electronics to rapidly penetrate into applications such as flexible displays or e-paper, intelligent textiles, bio-sensors, RFID labels and intelligent packaging among many others.

Continuously expanding end-use segment beyond OLEDs display, OLED lighting and Organic Photovoltaics (OPV) has helped the organic electronic market to growth robustly. The high-speed performance, low power consumption and sharper display functionalities of OLED is triggering its faster deployment into displays application. On the contrary, Logic and Memory and RFID labels are gradually becoming segments of focus for OE manufactures because of high usability and numerous advantages for these application segments.

The organic electronics market is expected to be worth USD 8,235 million in 2012 will further attain market size of USD 44,795 million in 2018. The growth through 2018 will be supported by logics and memory, OLED displays, Organic Photovoltaics, OLED lighting, and OFRID. Most of the organic electronics applications will be newly created rather replacement for other electronics, which is one of the reasons for the high growth of the market.
