Photonic Integrated Circuit Market - Global Industry Analysis

The concept of photonic integration traces its roots in the latter half of the twentieth century. The promise of photonic integration went unexplored and unfulfilled for several decades owing to number of reasons such as lack of technology maturity and lack of penetrative applications to drive its deployment. But now, after a long period of hibernation, developments in photonic integration and photonic integrated circuits are steadily picking up the pace. The objective of this study is to find, measure, and provide growth forecasts for Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) for various applications such as optical communications, sensing, biophotonics, and optical signal processing. This research report provides in-depth analysis of the global Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) market based on its major integration types, applications, raw materials, components, and geographies for the period from 2013 to 2019. It provides complete understanding of driving factors, restraints, and prevailing trends behind the popularity and growth of PICs.

World Fuel Cells Market Analysis

World commercial fuel cells spending to more than double by 2017


World fuel cell spending — including research and development funding, investment in fuel cell enterprises, as well as revenue derived from commercial sales — is projected to advance nearly 10 percent per year to $11 billion in 2017 and then almost double through 2022. Commercial demand for fuel cell products and services (including revenues associated with prototyping, demonstration, and test marketing activities, as well as actual product sales) will more than double to $4 billion in 2017 and then nearly triple through 2022. The share of total fuel cell expenditures accounted for by commercial demand will climb from one-fifth in 2012 to more than half of all spending in 2022.


Portable fuel cells to be fastest growing in unit terms


Commercial sales of fuel cell systems are projected to expand from what are currently extremely modest levels to more than three million units in 2022. Demand gains are expected to be strong in most major markets, although explosive growth in sales of portable fuel cell systems will result in their accounting for four-fifths of all unit demand in 2022. Suppliers of portable electronic fuel cell systems will benefit from the advantages that these products offer over battery systems, particularly their ability to generate power over a longer period of time than comparably sized batteries. Declining costs will make fuel cells an affordable alternative source of portable power in a growing number of applications. Nevertheless, portable electronics will remain a modest-sized fuel cell market in value terms, accounting for only three percent of the 2022 dollar total, because demand will be dominated by high volume, low price products.


Motor vehicles to be second largest fuel cells market


Fuel cells used in motor vehicle applications will account for the next largest share of systems sold in 2022, over 10 percent of the total. These will include not only fuel cell-powered automobiles and buses, but also fuel cell range extenders that are being developed for use in electric vehicles. More significantly, fuel cell systems used in motor vehicle applications will account for just under half of total commercial revenue in 2022. In early 2014, Hyundai began leasing fuel cell vehicles to commercial customers, and a number of additional vehicle models are expected to become available from other major automakers by 2017. Dollar demand is projected to rise from current extremely low levels — which at present consist mostly of revenues associated with prototyping, demonstration, and test marketing activities — to much larger but still very modest levels in 2022 relative to overall motor vehicle sales.


Electric power generation uses to continue brisk pace


Electric power generation has experienced the most extensive commercialization activity of any fuel cell application to date. In 2012, electric power generation accounted for roughly three-fourths of all commercial revenue and more than half of the total number of units sold, with strong growth in both large-scale megawatt applications and small residential micro combined heat and power units recorded between 2007 and 2012. Electric power generation-related fuel cell sales will continue to grow at a brisk pace through 2022, bolstered by comparatively low hurdles to overcome to achieve cost competitiveness and much greater fuel efficiency than conventional power generation methods.

World Fuel Cells Market Analysis

Permanent Wafer Bonding Market Report

The permanent bonding market is evolving, currently dominated and fragmented by 3 main permanent bonding equipment suppliers: EV Group (EVG), SUSS MicroTec, and TEL (Tokyo Electron). These 3 vendors today account for almost 80% of the permanent bonding equipment market by focusing on MEMS and advanced packaging applications including BSI CIS, CIS capping WLP, and 3D stack TSV.

TSV INTEGRATION IS CREATING GROWTH IN PERMANENT WAFER BONDING

Permanent bonding technology is a key process for a wide range of applications in the semiconductor industry such as MEMS, Advanced Packaging (BSI CIS, CIS capping WLP, 3D stack TSV), LED devices, and SOI substrate applications. This type of application is quite complex due to the high diversity of existing bonding technologies.

OLED Materials Market Analysis

Growth in the OLED industry is slower than expected due to very few breakthroughs in AMOLED displays and manufacturing costs that are still higher than those for LCD screens. According to the latest Quarterly OLED Materials Report, due to ongoing delays in OLED TV shipments, OLED material revenues are expected to reach just $795 million in 2014, a decline from previous forecasts of just over $1 billion.

Among the various OLED technologies, AMOLED is getting more attention from display manufacturers, as the flat panel display (FPD) market matures and revenue growth slows. AMOLED displays have been adopted mainly in mobile phones, but the AMOLED industry is now attempting to penetrate into televisions, tablet PCs, and other large-area display markets, and OLED material is expected to be one of key factors for this transition.

The OLED material industry and related investors are justifiably worried about where the OLED material market is headed in the near future. If OLED TV shipments increase, the larger average unit area and lower yield rate will increase the overall consumption of raw materials for OLED TV panel manufacturing.

Metamaterials Market Report

Although artificial materials were discovered a long time ago,significant developments and researches on their synthesis started only in the last decade due to unavailability of technology. Experts all over the world are conducting research and development activities related to this concept with several positive signs for this technology; however, it will still take another 5 to 10 years to realize their real potential.


Metamaterials are artificially engineered materials that offer many unique advantages over their conventional counterparts as they have properties that are not readily found in nature. They gain their unique properties from the structure of the inhomogeneities infused in them and not from their composition. Some of the unique properties offered by metamaterials are negative index of refraction and ability to bend light waves in the intended direction. Due to such unique properties, metamaterials have a long list of potential applications that includes invisible cloaking devices, superlens, flat antennas, and absorbers which are not possible with traditional materials found in nature.


The metamaterials market segmentation revolves around four verticals namely types of artificial materials, device types, application, and geography. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 41.25% to reach $643 million by 2025.


Few of the major companies profiled in the report are Kymeta (U.S.), Applied EM (U.S.), Teraview (U.K.), JEM Engineering (U.S.), Plasmonics Inc. (U.S.), and Microwave Measurement Systems LLC (U.S.).
