Nanophotonics Market Projected to Experience Significant Growth by 2032, With Estimated Value of USD 576 Billion

Posted  by GoPhotonics


Persistence Market Research recently published a report on “Nanophotonics Market Outlook (2022 to 2032)”. According to the report, the Global Nanophotonics Market size is projected to cross a valuation of US$ 576.0 billion by 2032. It is anticipated to witness a CAGR of 30.6% from 2022 to 2032. In 2022, the global market stood at a valuation of around US$ 39.8 billion. Growth is anticipated to be fueled by rising investment in sectors such as household appliances, internet access, and solar energy generation systems.   

High prices for equipment, raw materials, and research & development might prevent the industry from reaching its full potential. Prices must be reduced, and patent application procedures must be standardized, in order to remove this obstacle.  

As high-intensity LEDs can be used in different applications, it is anticipated that LEDs will expand in terms of market share. Passive matrix and active matrix OLEDs, also known as PMOLED and AMOLED, are two common types of nanophotonic OLEDs.  

The former is predicted to make up a significant portion of the market. Its uses include those for leisure, consumer electronics, lighting, telephony, indicators & signs, and non-visual uses.  

Applications vary depending on the product in question. For instance, nanophotonic OLED applications include telecommunication, entertainment, and non-visual applications. But, LED purposes include indicators & signs, illumination, and other non-visual uses.

The nanophotonic market is expanding due to increasing need for fiber optics and other telecommunications equipment. New and cutting-edge features such as increased refractive index, sensing, and computation, have been made possible by adding nanoparticles to optical fibers.  

According to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), India currently has an optical fiber-based network covering a distance of 2.8 million kilometers. It falls short of the National Broadband Mission's objective of deploying 5 million kilometers of optical fiber by 2024.  

However, since the country’s population is increasing, there is still scope for further development of optical fiber infrastructure. Demand for optical fiber is expected to drive the global nanophotonic market through 2032.
