Report Overview

Global Photonics Market Forecast and Trends

The global Photonics market is anticipated to grow nearly at a CAGR of 4.68 % to reach US$ 812 billion by 2026. Global photonics market growth is driven primarily by increased demand from applications such as displays, the need for energy-efficient products, and increased adoption in numerous applications of photonics products.

Increasing use of photonics has also fueled market growth in medical technology and life sciences, information and communication technology. Moreover, continuous R&D, coupled with technological advancement and photonics used in consumer electronics manufacturing, is expected to generate multiple market growth opportunities in the near future. In addition, high photonics products and services prices, as well as strict environmental standards, have been the major obstacles to market growth.

Global Photonics Market Overview:

Photonics is the physical science of the production, detection, and manipulation of light (photon) by absorption, transmission, modulation, signal processing, switching, amplification, and sensing. Photonics is a research field involving the use of radiant energy (such as light), the fundamental element of which is the photon. Photonic devices use the photon just as the electron is used by electronic applications. Devices running on light have a number of benefits compared to those operating on electricity.

Growth drivers

Need for energy-efficient products

For the production of energy-efficient goods and processes, extensive R&D activities are carried out. Products and services allowed by photonics serve as an acceptable substitute for conventionally used products. Solar energy is seen as an essential alternative for generating electricity using traditional fuel such as coal and oil & gas. The use of photonics products in lighting and displays, in addition to generating energy, also provides a significant reduction in energy consumption. The use of LED over conventionally used lighting such as incandescent and CFL has led to a substantial decrease in energy consumption.

Growing Adoption of Photonics is Substituting Semiconductor and Conductor Industry

Silicon photonics is an emerging photonics branch that provides a clear advantage over the electrical conductors used in semiconductors that are used in high-speed transmission systems. This technology is tempted to push up to 100 Gbps of transmission speed. The market is expected to invest heavily in this technology's mass adoption, and to be a key aspect in developing high-performance computing, increasing performance and efficiency. Therefore, the advent of silicon-based photonics drives the market growth.


Stringent environmental regulations impeding the performance of photonics products

Although photonics products are generally environmentally friendly, a few added chemicals to the products for performance enhancement are considered ecologically hazardous. Chemicals like arsenic oxide and boron oxide are known to be dangerous, and regulatory bodies like REACH and RoHS limit their use. Arsenic oxide is used in UV detectors, sensors, and other photonics products.
