The OPE journal Newsletter for October 2019 
OPE journal
Dear Mr Chung,
The OLED market is still firmly dominated by Asian companies. While many innovations in this field have been developed in Europe, the largest part of revenue is generated elsewhere. From a European perspective, niche applications and creativity are necessary to cope with this situation. Thus, the modular OLED light strips that have recently been unveiled by Fraunhofer FEP at the International Symposium on Automotive Lighting (ISAL) in Darmstadt, can be seen as another step in the right direction in this regard. Find out more about this fascinating automotive application in this newsletter.
Moreover, the OPE journal team is looking forward to InPrint 2019, where printed electronics will also play a central role. The event has firmly established itself in the printing community, and I am curious to see what the exhibitors in Munich will have in store for us this year.
Best regards
Martin Hirschmann
