Enabling  materials  and   manufacturing   processes... ...creating  these   devices... ...being  exploited  by   these  industries… …because  benefits can include… • Metallic  ink   • Organic  semiconductors • Inorganic  semiconductors • Dielectrics • Carbon  nanotubes,  graphene • Conductive  polymers • Glass,  polymer,  paper  and   steel  substrates • Flexible  barrier  films,   adhesives,  encapsulants • Quantum  dot  materials • Printing  processes  (inkjet,   gravure,  flexo,  screen,  roto-­ screen,  dip  pen   nanolithography,  lithography) • Vacuum  deposition,  spin   coating,  ALD,  CVD,  sputtering • Sintering,  curing  (photonic,   heat,  UV,  IR) • Thin  Film  Transistor  Circuits   (TFTs) • Memory • Displays  (OLED,  e-­paper,   electrochromic,   electrowetting,   electroluminescent) • Lighting  (OLED,  LED) • Sensors  (photo  detectors,   temperature,  pressure,   bioelectronic etc) • Photovoltaics  (CdTe,  CIGS,   DSSC,  OPV) • Batteries,  supercapacitors • Transparent  conductive  films • Actuators  and  haptics • RFID • New  Products • Stretchable  electronics • Touch  screens • Healthcare • Consumer  Goods • Consumer  Electronics • Aerospace  and  Military • Media  &  Advertising • Architecture  &  the  Built   Environment • Transportation Low cost NEW  FORM   FACTORS flexible,  thin,   conformal,     transparent,   stretchable TECHNICALLY SUPERIOR eg  better  displays,   readability  in  sunlight,  PV   more  efficient   in  lower  light  levels,   bio-­compatible   PRODUCTION Larger  areas,   faster  production   and  turn  around

Copyright  ©  IDTechEx | Fast  Moving  Consumer  Goods  (FMCG)  brands   are  loosing  markets  share  to  supermarket  own   brands  which  legally  copy  with  much   development   or  marketing  costs. Brands  seek  differentiation,  customer  loyalty   and  protected  uniques that  are  valued  by   customers. “Consumer  Packaged  Goods  (CPG)  shrinkage   is  $60  billion  yearly  of  $3  trillion  turnover.”  ECR   Europe Problems  in  the  Retail  Industry Stockouts at  retailers  cost  six  percent  of  sales.  One  third  of  these  are  items  in  the   retailer’s  store. Consumers  and  regulations  increasingly  demand  more  information  printed  on  the   package  – which  instead  needs  to  sell  the  product. And…  it  has  to  sell  the  product!  – be  entertaining,  etc
