The tunable filter market is estimated to grow from USD 122.0 Million in 2017 to USD 203.1 Million by 2023, at a CAGR of 8.86% between 2017 and 2023. Factors such as the adoption of acousto-optic tunable filters (AOTFs) for various medical and commercial applications and implementation of liquid crystal tunable filters for highly demanding machine vision applications are driving the growth of the tunable filter market.

The tunable filter market has been segmented on the basis of types into liquid crystal tunable filters (LCTFs), acousto-optic tunable filters (AOTFs), linear-variable tunable filters (LVTFs), and other tunable filters, which include thin-film, bulk Sagnac, Mach-Zehnder, Michelson type interferometers, Fabry-Perot interferometers, angle-tuned thin-film filters, and notch filters. Liquid crystal tunable filters held the largest share of the tunable filter market in 2016, and this trend is expected to continue in the next few years. LCFTs are having a wide array of applications across different systems, which, in turn, is increasing the growth of the liquid crystal market. Also, these filters provide better imaging of specular objects; therefore, LCFTs are being highly adopted to be used in the machine vision systems.

In 2016, the military application accounted for the largest share of the tunable filter market. Tunable filters are provided for all key military communications and surveillance platforms that are used throughout the world. Tunable filters have been used for performing high-quality communications based on requirements during harsh environmental conditions and critical places. These factors have contributed to the increased adoption of tunable filters for military applications.
