Global Silicon Photonics Market Analysis, Competition, Forecast and Opportunity Till 2026


DUBLIN, December 08, 2021– (COMMERCIAL THREAD)–The “Global silicon photonics market by component (active; passive), product (transceiver; switch; cable, sensor; attenuator), material (silicon or silicon based alloys; indium phosphide; others), End User & Region – Competition, Forecast & Opportunities, 2026 “ the report was added to offer.

The global silicon photonics market is expected to grow at a double digit CAGR during the forecast period.

Broadcasting and live streaming requires high-speed internet connection and optical cables, capable of transferring information or data in a reduced time compared to their counterparts such as conductors, etc., which drives the demand for the silicon photonics market. Silicon photonics uses optical rays to transmit data between computer chips. Higher bandwidth is the main reason for the increasing adoption of silicon photonics across the world.

The global silicon photonics market is segmented on the basis of component, product, material, end user, region and company. The increasing use of cloud computing generates large amounts of data in data centers and as a result, the IT and telecommunications industry is experiencing a high demand for components based on silicon photonics.

In addition, silicon photonics is energy efficient and offers high speed performance, so other industries are looking to use this technology as well. In terms of product, the transceiver is expected to dominate the market as it finds use in end user industries such as healthcare, IT and telecommunications among others. In addition, the device consumes less power and is compact in size, so it can be easily integrated into various systems.

On the basis of geography, North America dominated the global silicon photonics market in 2020. Due to the increasing demand for high-speed internet connection, companies have established their centers in countries like the United States. United and Canada.

Companies operating in the market use organic strategies to increase their share. For example, Cisco Systems acquired Luxtera in 2020, in order to offer optical capabilities to service providers, data centers and other businesses.
