Photonics Market key takeaways

Photonics is the physical science and application of light generation, detection, and manipulation. The application photon generation is done through emission, transmission, modulation, amplification, signal processing, switching, and sensing. Most of the photonic applications are in the range of visible and near-infrared light. The term photonics was developed as an outgrowth of the first practical semiconductor light emitters invented in the early 1960s and optical fibers in the 1970s. The photonics is closely related to optics. The optics tools include refracting lens, reflecting mirror, and optical components, and optical instruments. The term photonics is also related to the quantum optics, electro-optics, optomechanics, optoelectronics, and quantum electronics. The quantum optics are often connotes fundamental research, whereas the photonics is used to connote applied research and development. The photonics more specifically connotes particle properties of light, the potential of creating signal processing device technologies using photons, practical application of optics, and analogy to electronics. Photonics is related to the emerging fields such as plasmonics and polaritonics. The plasmonics is the interaction between light and plasmons in metallic and dielectric structures. The plasmons are the quantizations of plasma oscillations that manifest as surface plasmon polaritons when coupled to an electromagnetic wave. On the other hand, the polaritonics are the mixture of photons and phonons that operate in the range of frequencies from 300 gigahertz to 10 terahertz approximately. The applications of photonics are ubiquitous. The photonics applications are included in wide range of areas such as, light detection, telecommunications, information processing, laser material processing, photonic computing, spectroscopy, holography, lighting, metrology, medicine, biophotonics, military technology, art diagnostics, agriculture, and robotics.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a dramatic impact on the dynamics of various industries. The outbreak of coronavirus had negatively affected the expansion of the healthcare, information & communication technology, and consumer electronics industry owing to the world-wide lockdowns. The stringent regulations had resulted into the disruption in supply-chain, production, transportation, manufacturing, and research & development activities. Therefore, the pandemic situation has hampered the growth of the photonics market.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Growing consumption of silicon-based photonics applications is the key factors anticipated to fuel the growth of the market in the coming years.
  • Increasing demand for photonics products owing to excellent performance, durability, and energy-saving capabilities is expected to spur the market growth during the forecast period.
  • Rising applications of photonics in multiple sectors including information & communication technology, displays, photovoltaic, medical technology & life sciences, measurement & automated vision, lighting, and production technology is expected to propel the market expansion during the projected timeline.
  • High cost associated with photonics products and stringent environmental regulations for use of chemicals such as arsenic are anticipated to hamper the market growth in the coming years.
  • Increasing technological advancements for innovative avenues in wide range of industrial sectors including 3D printing, displays, photodetectors, green photonics, sensors, and imaging is expected to offer immense opportunities for the market players in the long run.
