Silicon Photonics Market is expected to grow with a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2025.

Silicon photonics is a combination of semiconductor laser and silicon integrated circuit that allows data transfer among computer chips with the help of optical fiber in which silicon is used as a platform to create optical communication. Silicon photonic system uses modulators, lasers, switches, waveguides, photo detectors, links and couplers to create an optical medium of silicon through which high speed data can be transferred over long distances via optical rays, instead of the traditionally used electrical conductors. The surging demand for high speed data transfer and rising government investments are driving the growth of silicon photonic market. In addition to this, increasing number of data centers, reduction in bandwidth and rapid growth in number of internet users are the factors that are fueling the growth of the silicon photonics market across the globe. As per the data revealed by the World Bank, about 45% of the global population has access to the internet. However, high costs associated with silicon photonic due to the requirement of independent computer aided design and presence of cheaper alternatives in market such as VCSEL may hamper the growth of the market. High R&D investments for making highly efficient and effective lasing concerning to thermal dissipation are anticipated to render profitable opportunities to the market players in the upcoming years.
