The following figure represents the contribution of different regions to the global photonic IC market in 2014.

Photonic Integrated Circuits Market

In terms of revenue, North America (comprising U.S., and Rest of North America) represented the largest photonic IC market, accounting for over 35 percent of the global revenue share in 2014. The U.S. represents the largest and the most lucrative photonic IC market worldwide. The photonic IC market in North America is majorly driven by the increasing penetration of photonic technology in the field of fiber optic communication, especially data center applications and wireless access networks.

In addition, presence of large number of photonic device manufacturers and continual research in the field of photonics has further cemented its leading position. Although North America is expected to remain the largest photonic IC market over the forecast period 2015 - 2022, Asia Pacific is expected to witness maximum growth, growing at a CAGR of 26.3%. The anticipated growth in the region is expected to be driven by the escalating demand from data center and biophotonics applications during the forecast period 2015 – 2022.

Raw Material Segmentation Analysis
The selection of surface material to be used while carrying out photonic integration is a crucial consideration. This is true, since the photonic integration derives maximum value from its ability to integrate multiple functions into a single material substrate. As such, proper selection of material substrate is crucial from both functionality and cost perspective. Based on different raw materials used, the global photonic integrated circuits (PIC) market is segmented into following categories

  • Indium Phosphide (InP)
  • Gallium Arsenide (GaAs)
  • Silicon (Si)
  • Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI)
  • Others (Lithium Niobate, Silicon Nitride, etc.)

The following figure represents the contribution of different raw materials to the global photonic IC market in 2014 and 2022.

Photonic Integrated Circuits Market

Indium Phosphide (InP) is the most preferred raw material used in photonic integrated circuits. In 2014, Indium Phosphide accounted for around one third of the global market revenue. It is expected to remain the most preferred raw material used for photonic integration during the forecast period 2015 – 2022. The dominance of Indium Phosphide can be attributed to its ability to integrate active as well as passive optical functions onto one single material substrate. In addition, other benefits offered in terms of cost, reliability, and energy efficiency make Indium Phosphide a preferred raw material for photonic integration. Other raw materials including silicon and silicon-on-insulator are also widely used in photonic integrated circuits on account of low cost, easy availability, and simple fabrication offered by these materials.

Integration Technique Segmentation Analysis
In order to merge multiple optical components/functions into a single package and make electronic devices compact, photonic integration is necessary. Based on integration technique, the global photonic IC market is segmented into following categories

  • Monolithic Integration
  • Hybrid Integration
  • Module Integration

The following figure represents the contribution of different integration techniques to the global photonic IC market in 2014 and 2022.

Photonic Integrated Circuits Market

Hybrid integration is the chief integration technique used for photonic integration. In 2014, the hybrid integration technique accounted for over half of the global market revenue share. Although it is expected to remain the major photonic integration technique, monolithic integration method is expected to witness maximum adoption, growing at a CAGR of 25.7% during the forecast period 2015 – 2022. The anticipated growth can be credited to its capability to integrate both medium and large sized photonic integrated circuits.

Furthermore, superior benefits offered in terms of reliability, power efficiency, and testing has convinced manufacturers across the globe to increasingly employ monolithic integration technique. Module integration is another technique employed for photonic integration. It accounted for the least revenue share in 2014. Over the forecast period 2015 – 2022, it is expected to exhibit sluggish growth. Inability to merge large number of optical functions and low fiber coupling integration offered as compared to other techniques is seen as the major roadblock in widespread use of module integration technique.

Hismation: Photonic Integrated Circuits
The notion of photonic integration finds its roots in the second half of the twentieth century. The potential of photonic integration and photonic integrated circuits (PIC) went untapped and unfulfilled for a number of decades. Lack of technology development and penetrative application products were the major factors responsible for the same.

The photonic technology had little evolved until advanced photonic integrated circuits capable of incorporating large number of active components were introduced. This development has been instrumental in stirring the photonic industry. After a long period of sluggish development and penetration, the evolution of photonic integrated circuits and photonic integration techniques finally received the necessary push. In fact, the technology has attained commercial growth in the recent years, enabling energy efficient and high bandwidth transceivers in data centers and telecom networks.

Electronic integrated circuits have an evolutionary head-start of over three decades and hence outnumber photonic integrated circuits. However, considering the benefits offered by photonic ICs, the industry experts have predicted that almost all electronic integrated circuits are expected to be replaced by photonic integrated circuits over the next decade. The industry experts have neither taken down the possibility of optics and electronics integration in the future. The following table represents the comparison between photonic integrated circuits and electronic integrated circuits.

Photonic Integrated Circuits Market

One of the major differences between an electronic integrated circuit and a photonic integrated circuit lie in the type of raw material used for its manufacturing. In photonic integrated circuits, the type of material used primarily depends upon the specific function of the device, while in case of electronic integrated circuits, silicon is the chief raw material used. Depending upon the specific function of device, different raw materials including Indium Phosphide, Gallium Arsenide, Lithium Niobate, Silicon, and Silicon-on-Insulator are used for PIC fabrication. However, there lie a similarity in the fabrication technique (photolithography) used by both electronic ICs and photonic ICs.

While there is no particular dominant device in photonic integrated circuits, transistors are primary devices in electronics. Furthermore, while electronic integrated circuits function in digital mode, photonic integrated circuits are analogous to electronic integrated circuits. The digitization is crucial for reducing the complexity of circuitry and attaining high level of integration.

In addition to the above mentioned distinctions, electronic integrated circuits also differ from photonic integrated circuits in case of data carriers used and hence the data transfer rate. Electronic integrated circuits use electrons as data carriers, while photonic integrated circuits use photons. Since photons travel at a speed of light, photonic integrated circuits are able to transfer data at a faster rate as compared to electronic integrated circuits.
