TMCNet:  Global Silicon Photonics Report 2014: Market will grow from US$25M in 2013 to more than US$700M in 2024, at a 38% CAGR

Global Silicon Photonics Report 2014: Market will grow from US$25M in 2013 to more than US$700M in 2024, at a 38% CAGR

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Silicon Photonics 2014 report" report to their offering.

In this report, analysts forecast the Si photonics market for four different applications: HPC, future-generation optical data centers, telecom and others (including sensors, medical and consumer).

They looked at the following modules/devices: transceivers (for AOCs) and embedded optics (from mid-board optics to interposers to intra-chip interconnects), and forecasts have been calculated in US$M, millions of units and wafer starts. They estimate that the silicon photonics device market will grow from around US$25M in 2013 to more than US$700M in 2024, at a 38% CAGR. In 2018, emerging optical data centers from big Internet companies (Google, Facebook, etc.) will trigger this market growth.

Non-datacom/telecom will only have a small portion of market value since these applications are still far from market maturity. However, we're at a turning point where the market is increasing again and Intel, which is very active in this field, could contribute to a quick ramp-up of Si photonics.
