Markets Finally Begin to Embrace Photonic Crystal Technology

Published on February 27, 2013 at 4:51 AM

Having spent nearly a century in relative obscurity, the market is finally beginning to embrace photonic crystal technology. An unwillingness and apprehension to exploring alternatives to well-oiled and well-established fabrication processes have kept large-scale commercialization of photonic crystals and photonic circuitry at bay.

Most of these conventional processes, however, are facing the ends of their growth cycle, having reached natural limitations set by the laws of physics. Photonic crystal-driven sensing, which promises switching at speeds much higher than that which is delivered by present-day technologies, is therefore poised to gain greater acceptance in various industries.

To be fair, the extent of risk involved in such migration without the technology having being developed to a foolproof state is cripplingly high, but photonic crystal stakeholders have no reason to lose heart, as there are multiple avenues for monetizing them through an array of components and modules.

Global Information (GII), in partnership with BCC Research, presents three regionally-focused reports below that cover the market potential for such modules and components. Photonic crystals will witness an upswing in industry interest across several domains and applications. Photonic crystals can indeed rival electrons in terms of sheer versatility. These modules and components have been selected because there are demonstrated instances of successful adoption of photonic crystals in these applications. In this context, it is interesting to note the approach adopted by different stakeholders toward photonic crystals. The reports below will provide a quantitative roadmap that will unravel this approach.

The "Global Markets and Technologies for Photonic Crystals" report provides an overview of the global market for overall components and modules internalizing photonic crystals in value terms for each individual component and module and volume terms. Market size forecasts are provided for the following segments: Photonic crystal-enabled components and modules such as LEDs, solar and PV cells, displays, biosensors, image sensors, optical fibers, discrete and integrated optical components as well as lasers and supercontinuum sources.
