Silicon Photonics Market Size [2022-2029] | Increasing Demand for High-Speed Data Transmission to Drive the Growth of Market

Jan 9, 2023

Pune INDIA Pune, India, Jan. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global  silicon photonics market size is projected to grow significantly during forecast year 2022 to 2029 This growth is attributed to factors such as increasing demand for high-speed data transmission Silicon photonics is a technology that uses light to transmit data on silicon chips, instead of using electrons. Silicon photonics technology has the potential to transform the telecommunications and computing industries. Key companies in silicon photonics industry are mainly focusing on the developing new applications and performance improvement with cost-effectiveness of products in order to stay ahead in the competition. Industrial Developments: March 2018: Luxtera announced a collaboration with TMSC, a prominent semiconductor foundry. Through this collaboration, the companies aim to set up an enhanced silicon photonics platform. Request a Sample Copy of the Research Report: Silicon photonics is used to produce optical devices at a cheaper price. It involves the use of standard semiconductor fabrication techniques that are integrated with microelectronic chips. As a result, photonics is being widely used in data transmission with the help of optical rays between microchips. The increasing demand for silicon photonics resulting from the exceptional properties of the product, will have a direct impact on the growth of the market in the coming years. Silicon photonics possess the ability to transmit huge amount of data in less time. They are preferred over electric conductors due to their exceptional properties. The growing incorporation of cloud computation, aimed at reducing bandwidth, coupled with the increasing internet traffic, will have a positive impact on the growth of the market in the foreseeable future. Drivers & Restraints- Increasing Company Collaborations Have Yielded Newer Products, Subsequently Aiding Market Growth The report encompasses several factors that have contributed to the growth of the market in recent years. Among all factors, the increasing number of company collaborations will have a direct impact on the growth of the market. In March 2018, Luxtera announced a collaboration with TSMC to introduce an enhanced optical performance. The merger helped set up a unique silicon photonic platform and helped serve cloud, 5G mobile infrastructure, and hyper scale customers with high performance and low cost optical transceivers. The report includes major company collaborations, similar to this and gauges their impact on the global market. COVID-19 Impact - COVID-19 had a Potential Impact On Market This market is expected to be negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic because of severe supply chain restrictions. The sudden spike in COVID patients led to the adoption of stringent lockdown norms, thereby negatively affecting the market’s development. The restrictions on transport, declining automotive sales, and the lack of raw materials led to severe disruptions in the supply chain. Further, manufacturing restraints negatively affected manufacturers’ revenue generation. These factors may propel market development during the pandemic.
