Apart from telecommunications, silicon photonics technology is extensively being used in the mass production of biosensors as well.

New developments in silicon photonics will transform healthcare segment and provide innovative techniques in detecting, curing and handling of diseases. In manufacturing, laser dispensation will be an important condition for manufacturing mass quality production quickly at a cheap rate. Further, photonics technology will also help in eradicating problems associated with optical computing or quantum computing. Silicon photonics proves to be a boon for the communication industry, which will transform the entire communication segment by increasing data ability and data transmission speed, while instantaneously decreasing the overall cost/ bit. Silicon photonics will play a vital role in successfully resolving the challenges associated with energy efficiency and moving to a carbon free economy.

BIS Research Analysis:

The problem to transfer huge data quickly could be resolved permanently through high density photonics integration with photonic devices. Moreover, these integrated photonics works closely with energy efficient network operations. Silicon Photonics is the perfect solution for such high density photonic integration, which allows incorporation of photonic devices made of silicon on a silicon wafer. The silicon material is translucent and has a refractive index in the range of 1200-1700 nm telecommunication wavelength. Thus, it is used to build very dense photonic devices.

The main reasons or factors driving the growth of silicon photonics market include price, capability and size. As the price of silicon photonics technology is showing a constant downfall, its demand has been extensively increasing in all the verticals including healthcare, telecommunication and defense among others. Over the years, major players are showing their interest in the silicon photonics market.
