Automotive Edition

The combination of flexible electronics and automotive has a bright future, with OLED lighting illuminating the path to come.

Whether it is sensors, OLED displays and lighting, heaters or other applications, there are plenty of opportunities for flexible electronics to be integrated into automotive applications. Some of these technologies have already been on the market for a few years, e.g. OLED lighting appearing in rear taillights, while recent developments in flexible and printed electronics can supply new, exciting functionalities. The current trends of sustainable transportation and self-driving vehicles open a lot more opportunities for flexible electronics to be utilized. Market analysts predicted the market size for flexible electronics in automotive will exceed $5.5 billion by 2026.

Whether we’re discussing integrating flexible electronics into automotive parts, or matching flexible electronic technology to digital applications in the automotive sector, there are many ways the two sectors offer each other fruitful collaboration.

This edition is endorsed by AMZ, Saxony’s network for the actors of the entire automotive industry value chain, and SenSa, the Saxony Sensor Technology Innovation Cluster that bundles all sensor players in Saxony and provides information on all sensor topics.
