The evolution of display technology, which offers a more advanced and ultra-high definition for enhanced visual experience, raises the demand for optical display instruments during the forecast period.


Low Demand for Displays Impacted the Sales of Displays in Short Term

The pandemic led to a decline in the growth of the global economy with a halt in trade and disturbed supply, leading to a decline in the sales of electronics and semiconductors globally. The drop in manufacturing activities owing to a shortfall of resources impacted the sales of display technologies. However, a strong demand overcame the backlogs of the pandemic and pushed the sales of optoelectronic devices.


Need for Better Transmission Capacity Drives the Trend of Modern Optical Industry

The industry has observed a big transition from a small-unit device to a broad-level integration and large-scale photonics integration to modern chipsets. Furthermore, there has been a rising need for a higher transmission capacity of optical fibers in the optical communication industry. This drives the popularity of photonic-integrated chipsets across industrial optical communication that boosts optoelectronics market growth in the long term.

  • For instance, in October 2023, STL, a global leader in optical technology and digital solution provider, developed the slimmest fiber micron 160 optical fiber. The optical fiber is capable of providing more optical wavelength than 250-micron fiber and can reduce the time of deployment by 30%.
