Organic Electronics refer to electronic components that are created from polymers. With this technology, novel RFID and sensor devices, so-called organic smart labels, will be printed like today's newspaper at high speed and in large amounts. This approach promises a dramatically cost reduction while providing on-label sensors. Because of that, organic smart labels are expected to find a broad adoption where current passive and active RFID technologies have failed. For instance, in the context of the Internet-of-Things (IoT), organic smart labels enable item-level tracking and in-depth sensory monitoring of real-world objects over the Internet. In this article, we set a business related perspective in correspondence with a technological roadmap of the organic smart label development. Furthermore, we discuss technical problems that will arise when processing the huge amount of data expected from the usage of organic smart labels.
