Market Research Study Photonics 2017 is published by the European Technology Platform Photonics21 and examines the European and global production of optics and photonics. The study provides metrics for the calendar year 2015, as well as data reported in two previous reports for 2005 and 2011. This report is the most comprehensive of the three studies. One purpose of the report is to monitor the progress toward goals set by Photonics21 for the European photonics industry. The market data was compiled by Optech Consulting, a Swiss market research firm. The project was overseen by the Photonics21 contracting secretariat, VDI Technologiezentrum GmbH. OIDA also compiles market data on the global optics and photonics industry and considers this report a helpful and complementary resource. The report is dated May 2017 and was released at the Laser Munich trade fair in June 2017 jointly with the VDMA market report. It has 94 pages.
