Pira International to Host Printed Electronics Workshop
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.—Printed electronics is one of the most disruptive technologies impacting the modern world. According to the latest research, by 2010 printed electronic devices and components are expected to be worth as much as $3.7 billion, according to “The Future of Printed Electronics to 2010,” Pira International. The latest technological developments mean electronics are being printed here and now and are set to revolutionize applications across a number of different industries. The advantages of printing are countless. The reduction of costs and application to new substrates are just two benefits which have unlocked a whole new platform for electronic applications. From clothes to packaging and cosmetics to cars, printed electronics have the potential to change the face and function of a huge array of different products.
The hype surrounding the possibilities for printed electronics has been immense. But to achieve the holy grail of commercialization that futurists have predicted, it’s essential that all facets of the industry work together to lower costs and improve the quality of printed electronics.
To bring together the diverse players in this dynamic field, Pira International is offering a three-day workshop/conference, Printed Electronics, being held in San Francisco, Calif. from March 26-28.
