Silicon Photonics is a relatively new technology that uses optical rays in order to transfer data between different computer chips and peripherals. This report covers particularly the markets for final products, devices and equipment that function on Silicon Photonics technology for six major application verticals namely: telecommunications, data communication, displays and consumer electronics, sensing, metrology, high performance computing and medicines.



In the last decade, the average cost of traditional microelectronics based optical has almost continuously increased. This has led to the gradual rise of Silicon Photonics as a solution to counter these operating cost and performance problems. Silicon Photonics technology will significantly reduce the costs associated with the components such as optical modulators, optical waveguides, attenuators and others. Silicon Photonics components substantially improve the data transfer speed in optical communication applications. Silicon Photonics based optical components consume lower power than the modulators, switches and others used in the existing optical communication networks.



Silicon Photonics wavelength division multiplexer filters are expected to be used extensively in the coming future, as these devices are one of the major components used in ever growing telecom and Datacom application sectors. These products will be followed by silicon modulators and interconnects due their potential use in long haul optical networks



The Datacom application sector is expected to grow as big as the telecom sector because silicon Photonics thechnology has the potential to satisfy needs of high performance computing and higher data transfer rates required for Datacom applications. Market penetration of silicon Photonics products in telecom and Datacom application sector will be high in the coming seven years.
