Optoelectronic device refers to various functional devices made through the electricity-photon conversion effect, widely used in communications, solar energy, industrial laser, LED and other fields. The report mainly focuses on optoelectronic devices for communication applications. In 2013, the worldwide communication optoelectronic device industry registered revenue of USD7.2 billion, up 7.5% on year-on-year basis (an increase of 6 percentage points compared to last year).

Global communication optoelectronic device manufacturers are concentrated in a handful of countries or regions such as the United States, Japan,Taiwan and China. In 2013, the world’s top five manufacturers occupied an around 48.2% market share. And preponderant enterprises are constantly improving the industrial chain through mergers and acquisitions to sharpen their competitiveness. On June 28, 2013, for example, Avago completed the acquisition of the indium phosphide (InP) optical chip and component technology supplier – CyOptics with USD377 million; later, it announced on December 17, 2013 the takeover of LSI, a storage-on-chip giant, at a price of USD6.6 billion.

Given the advantage of labor cost as well as the huge demand potential, China has become a worldwide leading production base of optoelectronic devices for Finisar, Avago and other foreign tycoons. In 2013, Finisar earned USD229.2 million in revenue from the Chinese market, surging 34% year on year; Avago also reported 19% revenue growth in China.

China’s production of optoelectronic devices presented explosive growth during the years 2008-2013, at a CAGR of 40.3%. In 2013, the output saw a slowdown in the growth rate but still sustained high-speed upward migration, up 31.5% year on year, which even hit 50.9% in the first half of 2014. From the regional perspective, optoelectronic device production bases are primarily located in Guangdong and Jiangsu provinces, which have contributed a combined 65.1% to China’s total output in the first half of 2014.
