Drivers and Restraints

Bullish Demand from Additive Manufacturing to Spur Growth Potentials

Stakeholders expect the photonics industry share to gain traction from the expanding penetration of additive manufacturing across the end-use sectors. Prominently, automotive and chemical plant manufacturers have become the major recipients of the technology. With the emergence of Industry 4.0, sensor-monitored mechanical parts became trendier across the emerging and advanced economies. Furthermore, the rising footprint of laser beam diagnostics and precise performance measures will solidify the position of leading companies vying to expand their penetration.

However, rigorous environmental regulations from watchdogs, such as REACH, could dent the industry growth. Notably, RoHS limits the use of cadmium, mercury, flame retardants polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and chromium VI in electrical and electronic equipment.

Regional Photonics Industry Insights

Asia Pacific to Provide Promising Opportunities with Rising Investments in R&D

Burgeoning industrialization, along with the expansion of the healthcare sector, is expected to fuel the position of Asia Pacific in the global industry. Notably, emerging economies, such as China, have upped investments in photonics technology. With an uptick in production technology and investments in communication applications, industry players will continue to invest in the region.

Stakeholders anticipate the U.S. and Canada to witness investment galore owing to the presence of leading companies. The North America photonics industry growth will witness an appreciable gain during the forecast period. The trend is mainly attributed to the innate ability of the light to enhance high-speed data processing and operate at ambient temperature.

The Europe industry outlook will be strong on the back of investments in photonic devices across the U.K., France, Germany, and Italy. To illustrate, in June 2021, the European Photonics Industry Consortium and nonprofit industry association rolled out some of the most significant EU acceleration initiatives in a host of application areas, including automotive and architectural lighting. Strong demand from defense and security and robust governments policies will bode well for the regional growth.

Competitive Landscape

Stakeholders to Emphasize Collaborations to Gain Competitive Edge

Industry players are poised to focus on product launches, technological advancements, mergers & acquisitions, and R&D activities during the assessment period. Current dynamics indicate industry participants will invest in geographical expansion.
