Optical technology makes the world of communication more compact and discrete and offers high performance as compared to electronics devices. Photonic integrated circuits are expected to emerge as a new technology in optical systems during the forecast period. The growing need to develop and deploy high-speed data transmissions is one of the major factors driving the demand for photonic integrated circuits. Also, the ability to leverage mass manufacturing, coupled with the fabrication of highly integrated circuits that can support hundreds of functions, is also one of the major factors expected to create potential growth opportunities for the photonic integrated circuit market.
A photonic integrated circuit is a complex integrated circuit that incorporates a lot of optical devices such as modulators, optical amplifiers, lasers and multiplexers to form a single photonic circuit. It provides functions for information signals imposed on optical wavelengths typically in the visible spectrum or near infrared 850 nm-1650 nm. Photonic integrated circuits are commonly used as optical (de)multiplexers in wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) fibre-optic communication systems. Therefore, with the growing demand for fibre-optic communication systems, the adoption of photonic integrated circuits is expected to rise during the forecast period.
