The acousto-optics devices market is expected to reach USD 469.1 Million by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.24% between 2016 and 2022. The base year used for this study is 2015 and the forecast period is from 2016 to 2022. The Acousto-optic devices market was led by the acousto-optic modulators (AOMs) in 2015. Acousto-optic modulators are increasingly deployed to provide a reliable, economical means for amplitude modulation of laser light. One important application of AO modulators is to serve as an external modulator in the laser communication systems. The acousto-optic modulators have applications in verticals such as life science & scientific research, industrial, semiconductor & electronics, aerospace & defense, medical, and others. Laser processing and material processing applications would drive the growth of the acousto-optic modulators market due to the high demand of acousto-optic modulators for these applications. The acousto-optic modulators market is expected to reach USD 145.7 Million by 2022, at the highest CAGR of 9.22% between 2016 and 2022. This is expected to boost the market for AO modulators in the future.

The industrial and semiconductor and electronics verticals are becoming popular owing to the high demand of laser technology for manufacturing and material processing applications.

The acousto-optic devices market is expected to be worth USD 469.1 Million by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.24% between 2016 and 2022. Acoustic-optic devices have a wide usage in the industrial and semiconductor and electronics verticals. Acousto-optic devices are used in laser equipments or systems for electronic control of the intensity and positioning of the laser beam. These devices comprise various materials such as fused silica, lithium niobate, arsenic trisulfide, tellurium dioxide and tellurite glasses, lead silicate, and lead (II) bromide that displays the acousto-optic effect.

In 2015, the life science and scientific research vertical accounted for the largest share of the acousto-optic devices market, followed by the industrial vertical. The acousto-optic devices market for the industrial vertical is expected to grow at a high rate between 2016 and 2022. Acousto-optic modulators are used to modulate the frequency and intensity of laser beams for laser based material and micro processing applications in the industrial vertical. In the life science and scientific research vertical, the demand for acousto-optic devices would grow owing to the research conducted in various fields such as imaging cytometry, photoacoustic imaging, optical coherence tomography, and multiphoton microscopy. These all factors are likely to boost the demand for acousto-optic devices in both these verticals.

Acousto-optic devices are used with laser systems for marking semiconductor components; hence, the players in the laser technology market are offering various high-speed semiconductor marking solutions, which in turn would boost the demand for acousto-optic devices technology in semiconductor and electronics vertical. Also, the acousto-optic modulators have been used exclusively for electronics laser applications such as cutting, marking, and other material processing processes in this vertical.

Acousto-optic modulators (AOM) are expected to experience a high growth between 2016 and 2022. Acousto-optic modulators with laser-based systems provide significantly higher precision, flexibility, and efficient results, which is accelerating the growth of the acousto-optic market for laser processing. The applications of acousto-optic modulators for various laser applications such as fast optical switches, printing and marking application and laser noise eater is expected to help in the growth of the acousto-optic devices market in the near future.

Acousto-optic Devices Market

Asia-Pacific (APAC) is expected to hold the largest share of the acousto-optic devices market in 2022. The acousto-optic devices market in the APAC region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2022. A huge population base, increasing investments toward the development of optics technologies, large number of research and development (R&D) activities, and increasing focus of laser applications for the industrial and telecom verticals are driving the acousto-optic devices market in the APAC region.
