From the Kiplinger Letter Tech Alerts dated September 30th, 2015. Among makers of printed electronics: GSI Technologies, based in Illinois; Quest Integrated, based in Washington; and Cambrios Technologies, based in California. Other well-known firms working on printed electronics include Corning, Boeing and DuPont. These and other players are betting on cheaper, better ways to add printed electronics to billions of products, many of which are increasingly being connected to each other via the Internet of Things. Expect to see printed electronics manufacturing facilities sprout in many parts of the U.S. where demand will be greatest. According to Ernst, a printed electronics plant costs about $20 million to $30 million to get up and running, far less than it takes to put up a semiconductor manufacturing facility. The latter can cost well over $10 billion to build.
