The article reports that Peter Harrop, chairman of printed electronics consultancy IDTechEx, has stated that true spray-on electronics is 15 to 20 years away. He sees printed electronics as opening up new markets and not affecting traditional semiconductor technology for a long time. He further said that by 2010 they will be used in electronic devices and this will have one end-point where one will be able to spray electronics on to anything.
