There is a promising near future for photonic crystals. The growth in excess of 46% on a yearly basis is a very clear indicator of the recognition that awaits photonic crystals in the larger market. It was 2,155 million dollar in the year 2010 and is expected to reach 34,500 million dollar by 2016 with a CAGR% of 46.1%.
The global market for component of photonic crystals like Displays accounted for around 37.5 % of total volume in 2010. It is expected to reach 6,078 million dollar by 2016 with a CAGR% of 34.5%.
The market for Optical fibers accounted for around 27% of total volume in 2010. It is expected to overtake the Display market by 2016 and it will reach 10,839 million dollar with a CAGR% of 41.2%.
Photonic crystals present an almost unique instance of a theoretically mature technology unable to strike roots in mainstream industry. Indeed, the technology governing photonic crystals, although articulated clearly only decades ago, has been known to humanity for more than 100 years. The principal reason for lack of enthusiasm in embracing this technology is the difficulty involved in the dismantling processes and techniques that promise extreme efficiency on the costing and delivery fronts. However, most of these conventional processes are facing the end of life because they have reached their physical limits. Photonic crystal-driven sensing, which promises switching at speeds much higher than what is delivered by present-day technologies, is therefore poised to gain greater acceptance in various industries.
The extent to which photonic crystals hold promise can be gauged by the diversity in modules and components that can monetize the potential of photonic crystals in the near future. This report, which covers the market potential for such modules and components, does not claim that it is an exhaustive list. It is indeed possible for photonic crystals to be employed outside this list. The reason for selecting these modules and components is that there have been demonstrated instances of successful adoption of photonic crystals in these applications.
By charting the market potential for these modules and components, the report presents the full extent of the promise of photonic crystals in the next half decade.
This study has the following goals and objectives:
• Measuring and forecasting the market size for overall components and modules internalizing photonic crystals in value terms for each individual component and module, and volume terms wherever possible
• Breaking down the overall photonic crystal components' and modules' market along individual components and modules: light emitting devices/diodes (LED), solar and photovoltaic (PV) cells, displays, biosensors, image sensors, optical fibers, discrete and integrated optical components as well as lasers and supercontinuum sources
• Breaking down the individual photonic crystal components' and modules' market along business verticals: automotive; energy, utilities and lighting; medicine; telecom; industrial and scientific; defense, surveillance, aerospace; computing and consumer electronics, white goods, and office space
• Breaking down the individual photonic crystal components' and modules' market along photonic crystal dimensions: three-dimensional and others
• Breaking down the individual photonic crystal components and modules market along geographical regions: Americas; Europe, Middle East, Africa -EMEA; and Asia-Pacific - APAC
• Analyzing the stakeholder landscape in the photonic crystal commercialization endeavors
• Analyzing the patenting activity involving photonic crystals.
The principal objective of this report is to chart the progress of a technology that is acquiring increasing surety and self-confidence across multiple domains. Photonic crystals have been the classic underachievers: full of promise, sound in theory but poor on implementation. The technology was a recipient of great disservice due to overriding industry allegiance to established processes and methodologies, to the point of testing their physical limits. This approach always had its limitations; the question confronting stakeholders of technologies such as photonic crystals was not if, but when would the industry warm up to this value proposition?
Photonic crystals will witness an upswing in industry interest across several domains and applications. In terms of sheer versatility, photonic crystals can indeed rival electrons. In this context, it is interesting to note the approach adopted by different stakeholders towards photonic crystals. The report will provide a quantitative roadmap that will unravel this approach.
A dilemma that one faces with a technology like photonic crystals is to accurately chart its scope. The simplicity of its technical premise opens doors to a variety of integration possibilities. This report aims at sifting out the most relevant and timely integration approaches by identifying specific components and modules that are most likely to emerge as the largest adopters of photonic crystals in near future. By doing so, the reader is able to derive an accurate estimate of the market size of not just the overall picture but also specific components and modules in terms of business verticals, geography to regions and dimensions of photonic crystals employed.
The report forecasts the size of the market in current U.S. dollars for overall components and modules internalizing photonic crystals in value terms for each individual component and module and volume terms wherever possible from 2011 through 2016.
The report forecasts the market size for the following:
• 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
• The above forecasts are classified on the basis of end application vertical, photonic crystal dimension and geographical region.
