The lasers component segment dominated more than silicon photonics market share of 35% in 2019 due to rising development in hybrid Silicon and tunable lasers. Through hybrid approach, companies can fabricate electrically driven lasers on a Silicon wafer that can be integrated with other photonics devices. This will increase their adoption in various data centers and telecommunication applications to improve network capacity in countries such as the U.S., UK, and France.
 

Furthermore, to meet the challenging requirements of next-generation coherent optics, companies are adopting tunable lasers that use high-performance silicon photonics. These lasers power the capability for low-cost fabrication in CMOS foundries, thereby increasing their adoption in high-speed coherent applications. Compact tunable lasers also deliver high-performance in emerging applications such as Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in biomedical and LiDAR in autonomous vehicles.
 

Rising data center traffic to create new opportunities for the market

The data centers & HPC applications accounted for over 70% market revenue share in 2019 owing to rising data center traffic and increasing volume in global network. According to Cisco Global Cloud Index, the annual data centers internet protocol traffic is projected to surpass 20 Zettabytes by 2021. This will propel the market demand to deliver high-energy efficiency and high bandwidth capacity for improved transmission in data centers.
 

Companies cater to demands by innovating new technology solutions for high-performance computing and data centers. This will further add an opportunity for the market growth. In March 2020, Ranovus Inc. launched the Odin platform, which includes a 100 GBPS silicon photonics engine. The new platform can deliver 50% power consumption reduction and a 75% cost reduction, thus delivering a power-efficient network solution. Additionally, the rising trend to develop hyper-scale data centers in future, which includes a high-speed connection to transfer a large amount of data will further boost the market revenue.
