Before photonic technology came into existence, electronic integrated circuits which used electrons as data carriers, were used in the electronics and communication industry.. With the data center market and number of users growing, the demand for transferring bulk amounts of data at high speed has increased, which cannot be met by electronic integrated circuits. Post a great deal of research, scientists have developed Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC), which utilizes photons as data carriers. Photons travel at the speed of light which is considerably greater than the speed of electrons. This feature facilitated PICs to transfer large amounts of data at high speeds, which fuelled its market growth. PICs can integrate a high number of components on a single chip, thereby opening the door for development of compact and small equipment. Other advantages pertaining to the use of PICs are low power consumption, reliability, lower heat dissipation, increased efficiency and minimal cost of production. The abovmentioned factors are propelling demand for the photonic integrated circuit market, as per the newly compiled market research report from IndustryARC. The report has valued the global photonic integrated circuit market at $785 million as of 2018. Furthermore, the demand is anticipated to increase at an outstanding CAGR of 28.91% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2025.
