Printed electronics is a fast-growing field, characterized by organic components, large-area production, substrate flexibility, light weight and structural integration into a variety of smart objects. Using additive manufacturing processes based on conductive, dielectric and electro-active inks, printed electronics have a smaller ecological footprint than conventional electronics, use fewer natural resources and generate less waste. Investment and progress in Europe are bolstering the development of this promising industry in France.
United by printed and organic electronics, our motto at AFELIM is to make the profession shine by creating a dynamic network, exchanging on issues, enhancing the value of the industry, strengthening the R&D-production link, relaying messages to public authorities, opening doors to major research programs, representing our members at events and trade shows, and serving as an influential relay at European and global levels.
Printed electronics opens up a vast field of innovation, with a wide range of applications. Dynamic private and public investment in Europe, combined with significant advances in production techniques and the materials used, point to promising growth for this new industrial sector, particularly in France. These applications are aimed at both high-value-added professional markets and mass markets for the general public, including healthcare, energy, security, mobility, packaging.
