This book focused on the key technologies of PE, including expectations for the future. Development is under way, but it is very fast as seen in the revolution of organic or oxide semiconductors even though the technology has just begun. It is true that this field is growing with the revolution in new materials technology. In other words, it is possible that more very new materials will be discovered next year—or even tomorrow. Although such a facet may benefit someone at his right timing for one product, it may cause some difficulty to grasp a timing to release his new product. At any rate, the transition from conventional electronics manufacturing to the new printing fields or new printed products, among which the first priority has not been still ambiguous, has begun, aiming at the areas of charm. It may take a little more time to develop, on a large scale, the expected huge markets such as displays, photovoltaics, and lighting with printable OLED technology.
