Optical Waveguide Market Dynamics

Driver: Technological advancements in photonic integrated circuits (PICs)

A photonic integrated circuit (PIC) is a chip that contains photonic components, which works on the principle of data transmission through photons or light. In PICs, photons travel through optical components such as waveguides, polarizers, and phase shifters, which are equivalent to resistors, transistors, capacitors, and electrical wires. PICs offer high-end features such as miniature footprints, low-loss transmission, large bandwidth, freedom from electric short circuits, and immunity from electromagnetic interference (EMI). These PICs are witnessing high adoption among emerging use cases such as data center interconnect (DCI), telecommunication, high-performance computing (HPC), and optical computing. Several companies are emphasizing developing technically advanced PIC solutions to cater to emerging use cases in the market. For instance, in December 2022, OpenLight (US) developed a new 800G DR8 photonic integrated circuit (PIC), which is targeted for data center interconnect (DCI) applications. The newly developed PIC is fully validated for applications in transceivers for DCI applications. Such technological advancements will amplify the growth of optical waveguide market.

Restraint: Issues associated with designing and fabricating optical waveguides

The major factor restraining the adoption of optical waveguides is issues faced in the design and fabrication process. The designing of optical waveguides requires expertise in physics and engineering as they are designed to meet unique requirements and mainly rely on a specific set of waveguide transmission protocols. The optical waveguides are fragile, expensive, and prone to transmission losses. They are tested and manufactured with the help of customized equipment and require significant capital investment. Also, due to the miniaturized footprint, there are several challenges to integrating optical waveguides into microchips and integrated circuits (ICs). The requirements like miniaturization and ruggedness for such components without compromising performance characteristics lead to additional design and fabrication expenses. Thus, the high cost and time required for manufacturing and deploying the optical waveguides prove to be a restraint in the market growth.

Opportunity: Rising investments in augmented/mixed reality (AR/MR) market

Investments in the augmented/mixed reality (AR/MR) market have witnessed massive growth over the past few years. Companies such as Intel Corporation (US), Meta Platforms, Inc. (US), Qualcomm, Inc. (US), Alphabet, Inc. (US), and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd (South Korea) are heavily investing in AR/MR market. These players are extensively investing in the development of near-eye devices (NEDs) such as smart glasses and head-up displays. In near-eye devices (NEDs), the optical waveguides help bend and combine light to direct it into the eye and create virtual images, which can be observed by the wearer and are overlaid onto the environment. They propagate a light field via the mechanism of total internal reflection, bouncing light between the inner and outer edges of the waveguide layer with minimal light leakage.

Private firms are funding several research institutes, and venture capitalists and governments are funding some. Industries such as enterprise, retail, healthcare, military & defense, industrial, and consumer electronics are embracing the benefits of augmented/mixed reality (AR/MR) technologies. Enterprises are emphasizing implementing inorganic growth strategies such as partnerships and collaborations to develop AR/MR technologies. For instance, in October 2022, Dispelix Oy (Finland), ColorChip (Israel), and Maradin (Israel) announced a partnership to further advance Laser Beam Scanning (LBS) solutions for AR glasses. The collaboration integrates Dispelix diffractive waveguide displays, Color Chip PLC (Planar Light Circuit) beam combiner, and Maradin MEMS projection technology for Laser Beam Scanning (LBS).

Challenge: Challenges associated while embedding optical waveguide components into small circuits

Challenges associated while embedding optical waveguide components into small circuits are expected to impact the market growth. Implanting different waveguide components into nanometer (nm) sized integrated circuits is a critical task. Also, due to the thermal effect, it is a big challenge to embed these components at a nanometer scale. Optical/photonic devices are susceptible to waveguide dimensions, requiring nanometer-scale control over a full wafer and having a considerable variation in a refractive index. It is possible to overcome this challenge with active tuning and temperature control, but this can severely impact the power consumption of the optical links. Thus, embedding waveguide components into smaller circuits pose a major challenge to the growth of the optical waveguide market.
