Organic electronics: a high-value market

Estimated in 2018 at 31 billion dollars, the electronic organics market value could reach over 77 billion dollars in 2027 (Source : IDTechEx 2019).

Thus, to fully answer the needs of this fast-growing market, LUMOMAT gathers the strong abilities of 4 mixed CNRS – University research teams: MOLTECH-Anjou, ISCR, CEISAM and IMN. Indeed, the complementary expertises of the Western laboratories cover the whole research chain from the molecular design and synthesis to the final devices. 

In order to maximize the industrial opportunities, LUMOMAT research focus on three pillars:

1) Materials for energy, such as organic photovoltaic, organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC), hybrid perovskites, artificial photosynthesis;

2)Materials for health and environment, in particular with the use of new probes-sensors for medical applications;

3) Materials for transport and information storage, from nanostructured systems.

Here are a few potential industrial applications:

  • Flexible, printable, recyclable, rollable electronic components…
  • Thinner TV screens with OLEDs,
  • Solar energy gathered by flexible organic films and moutable on a wide range of surfaces.

To sum up, LUMOMAT ambitions to:

  • Structure the innovation around organic electronics on the whole value chain, from the laboratory to the company, or to directly answer industrials ‘needs through collaborative research projets, continuous training… 
  • Strenghen the links between the academic and industrial worlds;
  • Maximize the economic impact of our research activities through value creation, support to entrepreneurship…
