Organic electronics refers to a branch of electronics that utilizes organic materials, typically carbon-based polymers or small molecules, as the essential components in electronic devices such as displays, sensors, and flexible circuits. The use of organic materials enables lightweight, flexible & low-priced electronic applications.

The limited device lifespan and stability of organic materials can impede market growth during the forecast period. Organic electronic devices are sensitive to environmental factors such as moisture, oxygen, and light, leading to reduced device stability and shorter lifespan. Organic materials are susceptible to degradation, leading to a reduction in device performance & lifecycle and impacting their reliability & long-term viability in certain applications. Ensuring stability and reliability of organic electronic devices is a crucial challenge that needs to be tackled for wider market acceptance and incorporation into various applications.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic impacted many markets including the organic electronics market in 2020. Lockdown measures, travel restrictions, and factory closures enacted to contain the spread of virus considerably disrupted the global supply chain for organic electronic materials and components. This disruption led to production delays, raw material shortages, and logistical challenges, impacting the overall supply of organic electronic devices. The pandemic also affected research & development activities in the organic electronics field. Laboratory closures, restrictions on physical interactions, and funding challenges decelerated innovations and paused the introduction of new technologies & products to the market.

Organic Electronics Market Trends

The rising focus on sustainability and eco-friendly solutions is fueling the organic electronics industry. Organic materials are often derived from renewable sources and have lower environmental impacts compared to inorganic materials, thereby aligning with the increasing emphasis on sustainability and eco-friendly technologies. As sustainability concerns grow, the demand for environmental-friendly electronics continues to rise, driving the organic electronics industry. Organic photovoltaics (OPV) and Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) are being explored as energy-efficient alternatives to conventional solar cells and lighting technologies. Organic electronics with their potential for low-energy consumption, recyclability, and reduced carbon footprint are poised to address these sustainability requirements.
