Presentation of the organics electronics research activities of the Elorga team

Organic electronics is a rapidly growing field that aims to develop and commercialize electronic devices made from organic semiconductors. This technology has been evolving since the 1980s, and it has now become a distinct discipline. Organic electronics has several objectives, including the development of new types of electronic devices, the reduction of manufacturing costs, and the creation of more sustainable and environmentally friendly electronics.


One of the most significant objectives of organic electronics is to create new types of electronic devices that are flexible, lightweight, and can be produced in large quantities. Organic electronic devices, such as OLEDs and organic solar cells, have several advantages over traditional inorganic devices. They are cheaper to produce, more energy-efficient, and can be fabricated on flexible substrates. As a result, organic electronics has attracted significant investment from both industry and academia, with many companies and research institutions working to develop and commercialize organic electronic devices

The economic impacts of organic electronics are significant, with the market for organic electronics expected to grow rapidly over the next few years. According to a report by Allied Market Research, the global organic electronic market size is expected to reach from $46.12 billion in 2019 to $159.11 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 21.0% from 2020 to 2027.  The market for OLEDs is expected to be a significant driver of this growth, with OLED displays and lighting expected to become increasingly prevalent in the consumer electronics and automotive industries


Organic electronics also has the potential to reduce manufacturing costs and improve sustainability. The materials used in organic electronic devices are cheaper and more abundant than traditional inorganic materials, the manufacturing process for organic electronic devices is simpler and requires less energy than traditional semiconductor manufacturing processes. This could lead to significant cost savings and a reduced environmental impact.
