Sales of Optical Communication Products Based on Silicon Photonics Are Projected to Reach $1 Billion by 2020

LightCounting Releases a Report Titled Market Opportunity for Optical Integration Technologies, Including Silicon Photonics

EUGENE, OR--(Marketwired - January 29, 2016) - LightCounting releases a report, offering an analysis of the potential impact of integration technologies on the market for optical components and modules used in data centers and other networking systems.

"Many in the industry have predicted that Silicon Photonics (SiP) will enable inexpensive, mass produced optical connectivity, radically changing the optical components and modules industry," commented Vladimir Kozlov, CEO and Founder of LightCounting. "Our analysis suggests this will not happen in the next 5 years, but sales of SiP-based optical products may reach $1 billion by 2020, accounting for about 10% of the market."

The report presents data on advances made by optical integration technologies during 2010-2015 and offers a forecast for discrete and integrated products based on InP, GaAs and SiP technologies for 2016-2021. The forecast is segmented by primary applications, including Ethernet, WDM, AOC-EOM and a few others. Products are sorted by data rate, reach and form factor into more than 100 categories.
