Market Overview:

The global photonics market size reached US$ 801.7 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 1,143.7 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.9% during 2023-2028.

Photonics represents a technology or an area of study that deals with the science of generating, detecting, controlling, and manipulating photons, radiant energies, and light. It is considered a subset of various optic disciplines, including geometrical, physical, and quantum. It includes a light-emitting diode (LED), imaging devices, laser, sensors, and detectors as standard product types. These photonics-enabled devices offer higher energy efficiency, a longer life span, better accuracy, and faster operations than their counterparts. Apart from this, photonics ensures data transmission, generates less heat, and minimizes energy consumption cost-effectively. Based on these properties, it finds extensive applications in displays, photovoltaics, machine vision, image processing, optical components, and medical technologies.

Photonics Market Trends:

The widespread product adoption across various industrial verticals can be attributed to the need for photonic-enabled connected services and the extensive utilization of additive manufacturing (AM) to produce complex components and prototype tools. In line with this, significant enhancements in the healthcare infrastructure and the escalating demand for non-invasive disease detection have facilitated the uptake of photonics in imaging techniques and point-of-care technologies, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Such solutions are used in medical and biological research for drug development, medical imaging, laser beam diagnostics, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) scanning to detect health conditions. Additionally, the extensive utilization of photonics in communication networks, integrated circuits (IC), computing systems, and next-generation sensors to transmit, generate, convert, and use data instantly is impelling the market growth. Apart from this, the large-scale product incorporation in residential security systems, amplifiers, switches, light modulation devices, light detection and ranging (LiDAR), and the integration of the Internet of Things (IoT) solutions are creating a positive outlook for the market.
