Excerpts on Market Growth  Factors Mentioned in Silicon Photonics Market Report:

  • Silicon photonics has been experimented with communication levels,moving beyond network to inter-module, inter-chip and intra photonic chip.
  • High data centers and high performance computing applications are evolving based on optical waveguide communication rather than optical fibers.Due to adoption of suchnovel applications, the market is anticipated to lead towards high growth.
  • The current requirementsof the application of optical wave is confined to single mode transceiver,whereas on analyzing the current data communications scenario, wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) has been the urgent requirement accordingtodata centers.
  • Transistors has havebeen the fundamental building block for semiconductor businesses, but silicon photonics involves Lasers, Diodes, Modulators, Converters, Couplers, Drivers and Waveguides as the basic building blocks. Also, in terms of materials,silicon has been the foremost choice in the Semiconductor industry, but for Silicon Photonics, a wide variety of raw materials are being utilized such as InP, InGaAs and Silicon.
