The OIDA Market Update brings the Annual Market Report to OIDA members and the industry in a series of bi-monthly installments. Each update features key topics in optics and photonics markets, including particular sectors or market segments, regional trends, and recent areas of focus for OIDA, and which are not available in another form in the industry today. The Market Update also features more detail on topics that are reported by OIDA elsewhere in presentations and in the OIDA newsletter. The material is presented in a user-friendly format as a set of slides with accompanying narration.

Highlights in this OIDA Update:

  • Optical communications highlights.  This section features highlights from two events collocated at OFC 2015: the OSA Executive Forum and the Photonics for Disaggregated Data Centers Workshop, both hosted by the OSA Industry Development Associates (OIDA).  (Presentations from both and a workshop roadmap report are available to OIDA members through the OSA website.)   The section also features selected highlights from OFC 2015 and the NFV World Congress.
  • Display market.  This is a brief update of the display segment, the one that dwarfs all other photonics segments.  The dominant technology is conventional liquid crystal displays (LCDs).  The section emphasizes selected promising and emerging technologies apart from conventional LCDs.
  • U.S. federal funding of biophotonics.  We examine U.S. funding of this important topic to expand our coverage of global funding of photonics.
