cintelliq is pleased to announce their latest patent report Organic Electronics: A ten-year review of the patent landscape - this review and analysis of organic electronic patents covers the period 2008 - 2017. The review and analysis focuses on organic and printed electronics - includes device, material and process patents for OLED, OPV, OPD, OTFT, sensors and related devices.

The report is the world's first comprehensive analysis of organic electronic devices, materials and process patents. It is a must have resource for all companies with an active development program in organic and printed electronics.

The landscape review review and analysis is based on more than 160,000 patents that were published between January 2008 to December 2017 - a ten year period. Patent publication has steady increased from 12,000+ in 2008 to more than 20,000+ by 2017. A growth of more than 70%, although annual increases have varied, peaking in 2014 and then slowing in 2015 and 2016 with a rapid increase in 2017.

These published patents are a result of innovations filed by companies primarily between 2007 and 2014, it is worth noting that the fall off from 2014 is just a reflection of the delay between filing a patent and its publication - about 18 months.
