The global organic electronics market was valued at US$ 33.99 billion in 2019 and expected to reach US$ 160.37 billion by 2027, with at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.4% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Growth Factors

Advancements in display technologies create significant demand for the organic electronic devices such as Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) that is among the latest and most advanced display technologies. OLED displays are prominently used in televisions, laptops, mobile phones, and other display electronic devices. Hence, the aforementioned factor is likely to impel the market growth over the forthcoming years.

Further, the organic electronics is more preferred over the inorganic electronics because of simple processing methods and low material utilization during manufacturing process. In accordance to same, high-end technological products are manufactured using organic materials such as dielectric, semiconductor, and conductive materials.

Additionally, shifting trend from conventional posters and signage towards digital signage has created immense opportunity for the organic electronics manufacturers to strengthen their foothold in the target market. Hence, increasing penetration towards digital signage as it proved as a more effective marketing tool as well as visualized to enhance the product sale through its interactive features. As a part of survey conducted in the United States, the percentage jump in the unplanned purchases particularly in the restaurants is around 80%. Similarly, rising demand for digital signage at various platforms expected to boost the growth of organic electronics over the coming years.

Material Insights

Semiconductor led the global organic electronics market accounting for more than half of the total market value in 2019 and expected to grow at the fastest rate over the forthcoming years. The prominent growth of the segment is mainly due to a unique feature offered by the semiconductor material that is no insulating oxide formed on the surface when they are exposed to air. This helps the material to form a clean interface with the other materials.

Organic semiconductor is a non-metallic material that provides semiconducting properties. These materials have numerous advantages compared to inorganic semiconductors that include lightweight, mechanical flexibility, and low cost that in turn offers opportunity for developing devices by using low cost fabrication methods. Increase in awareness related to sustainable development along with the fact that organic semiconductors are biodegradable has significantly increased its preference over the counterparts; thus, increases the market demand for organic electronics.

However, dielectric materials have gained significant importance over the past few years owing to their increasing demand and opportunity in applications such as automotive, consumer electronics, medical, digital signage, and security.

Application Insights

Display application captured significant market share in the global organic electronics market in 2019 because of rising demand for advanced display technologies in various application that include smartphones, laptops, television, and other electronic products with display screen. The advancement in the display technology such as Organic LED (OLED) displays expected to offer huge demand for the organic electronics over the upcoming years. OLEDs display offers numerous advantages to the users that are enhanced image quality related to better contrast, fuller viewing angle, higher brightness, much faster refresh rates, wider color range, and lower power consumptions. Hence, significant advantages offered by the OLEDs have transformed the display screens to be foldable, flexible, ultra-thin, and transparent displays.

Besides this, lighting is the other most important application of organic electronics because of increasing demand for more efficient and cost-effective lighting technology. LED lights have gained significant importance over the past decade owing to less consumption of energy along with integration of advanced technologies such as IoT and artificial intelligence to upgrade their performance and user experience.
