Apr 08, 2022/IndustryNewsGlobal/ The unexpected shifts in the global markets because of the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 virus have brought many major and minor tremors to industries of all sizes including the Silicon Photonics Market.

It was estimated prior to this unanticipated outbreak that the Silicon Photonics Market is likely to witness an impressive CAGR of 20.5% during the forecast period. The prime factor that is contributing to the growth of the market for silicon photonics is mainly the surge in demand for high-speed data transmission in data centers, globally.

Silicon Photonics are the applications of photonic systems employing silicon as an optical medium. The silicon materials used in such photonic systems are deployed into micro photonic components as they are designed with sub micrometer precision. The silicon photonics system functions at the wavelength of 1.55 micrometer that comes under the infrared spectrum and is most frequently used for optical communications.

Silicon Photonics are of different types, such as switch, transceiver, cable, sensor, and variable optical attenuator, that are used in various end-use industries, such as data center, telecommunications, military & defense, and others.

This report studies the market covering a period of 12 years of trend and forecast. The report provides detailed insights into the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market.

Segments’ Analysis

Based on the product type, the market is segmented as switch, transceiver, cable, sensor, and variable optical attenuator. The transceiver segment held the largest share of the market in 2020, and is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period. The wide use of transceivers in data center and high-performance computing; telecommunications; and military, defense, and aerospace is driving the growth of this segment.

Based on the application type, the silicon photonics market is segmented as data center and high-performance computing; telecommunications; military, defense, and aerospace; medical and life sciences; and sensing.
