    NanoMarkets announces the release of its latest report on the emerging
organic/printed logic and memory market, titled "Markets for OTFTs, OFETs and
                           Organic Memory - 2012."

Glen Allen, Virginia - August 3, 2012 -- Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets announces
the release of its latest report on the emerging organic/printed logic and memory
market, titled "Markets for OTFTs, OFETs and Organic Memory - 2012." The report
analyzes the opportunities for materials, component, and device makers in the
OTFT/OFET and organic nonvolatile memory (ONVM) value chain over the next eight
years. NanoMarkets estimates that the total market value of OTFT/OFET and ONVM
components will grow to nearly $1B (US) in revenues by 2018. Over the same time
period, the value of the market for printed electronics devices enabled by these
OTFT/OFET and ONVM components will reach $4.6B.

About the Report:

This latest NanoMarkets report provides an analysis and forecast of the OTFT/OFET
and ONVM market over the next eight years. Applications covered include smart
packaging, brand protection, security, smartcards, distribution tagging and RFID,
interactive media, disposable electronics, and (flexible) display backplanes. The report
examines some of the latest market strategies, products and technical developments in
materials, and it identifies how performance and manufacturing improvements are
finally improving the prospects for printed/organic electronics.

As in all NanoMarkets reports, this report contains granular eight-year forecasts of
OTFT/OFET and ONVM shipments in both unit and value terms, with breakouts by
material type (small molecule vs. polymer) deposition technology (vapor vs. solution
processing), and by panel type (rigid vs. flexible). Material categories discussed include
organic and/or polymeric semiconductors, ferroelectric materials, dielectrics, and
electrodes.

Key players mentioned in the report include Acreo, BASF, Bemis, Fujifilm Dimatix,
Hewlett Packard, Heraeus, Holst Centre, InkTec, JAPERA, LG, Merck/EMD, OE-A,
Optomec, PARC, PEA, Polyera, PolyIC, Qolpac, Samsung, Solvay, Sony, Thin Film
Electronics, Toppan Printing, and others.

From the Report:

A decade ago, OTFTs/OFETs and ONVMs were once darlings of the advanced
materials sector, but the early hype largely dissipated as their huge potential was in
stark contrast to their disappointing reality. Materials performance was low and
manufacturing proved more difficult, and more costly, than originally expected. But
today there are signs that things may be turning around. There is renewed interest and
commercialization activity in this sector, and NanoMarkets believes that the industry is
poised to take off in the 2014-2015 timeframe, built upon better materials and
processes, meaningful collaboration between players, and the launch of new products
that will add credibility to the whole sector.

But NanoMarkets cautions that commercial success will only happen if suppliers can
help to close the remaining technology - and cost - gaps that could hold back the
realization of low-cost/high volume fabrication. Players in this industry can thus carve
out competitive advantages in the following areas: improved material performance,
especially with respect to mobility, because while improvements have been made, still
more are needed; development of reliable and easy-to-use inks and coatings, as well
as the optimization of suitable printing or solution patterning methods for them; and
establishment of a well-integrated manufacturing and supply chain that brings all of the
elements together to provide sellable products to end-users.
