Market Accounted for $800 Million in 2019 and is Expected to Reach $3.77 Billion by 2027

Dublin, Oct. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Silicon Photonics – Global Market Outlook (2019-2027)” report has been added to’s offering.

Global Silicon Photonics Market accounted for $0.8 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach $3.77 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 21.4% during the forecast period.

Some of the key factors propelling the growth of the market are increasing demand for high-speed broadband services, deployment of 5G technologies in developing nations, and growing demand for CMOS-integrated silicon photonics technology. However, the risk of thermal effect is the restraining factor for the growth of the market.

Silicon photonic devices contain optical systems that use silicon as the optical medium. Since silicon is used as a substrate for most ICs, it is easily possible to manufacture hybrid devices in which electronic as well as the optic components are integrated on a single microchip. They are increasingly used in data transfer between microchips, through optical rays. Moreover, they are capable of carrying a large amount of data in a short time as compared to the electrical conductors.

By application, the IT and telecommunication segment is expected to grow at a significant market share during the forecast period because of the growing demand for smartphone products and the need for maximizing the performance of existing fixed and mobile infrastructures. Based on geography, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to hold considerable market share during the forecast period owing to the strong growth in the data centres, long haul & transport networks, and presence of consumer electronics manufacturers.

Some of the key players in Silicon Photonics Market include Intel, Cisco, IBM, Globalfoundries, STMicroelectronics, Rockley Photonics, Inphi, Mellanox, Ranovus, Neophotonics, Lumentum, broadcom, Ii-Vi Incorporated, Macom, and Sicoya.
