Reasons for Doing the Study

BCC Research published its original report on photonic crystals in 2011, followed by updates in 2012 and 2015.In this third update, forecasts are revised slightly upward from previous reports.

The upward revision stems from the growing awareness of photonic crystals and a more realistic appraisal of the technology’s likely influence on components and modules.

Photonic crystals can rival electrons in terms of sheer versatility, an issue that will certainly inform the approach adopted by different stakeholders toward this technology. This report provides a quantitative roadmap that will analyze this approach.

To accurately chart the scope of photonic crystals poses a challenge.The simplicity of its technical premise opens doors to numerous integration possibilities.

This report aims to sort through the most relevant and timely integration approaches by identifying the specific components and modules that may emerge as the largest adopters of photonic crystals. This way, the reader can derive an accurate estimate of the market size of not only the overall picture, but also of specific components and modules in terms of applications, geographical regions and dimensions of the photonic crystals employed.
