Traditionally, North America and Europe have dominated the silicon Photonics market due to the innovation happening in this region and due to merger of small silicon Photonics companies with big companies in the silicon Photonics domain. However, the Asian region lags far behind its counterparts as far as the silicon Photonics technology is concerned. One of the key factors responsible for it is the lack of knowledge of the silicon Photonics technology. One of the major advantages of using silicon Photonics technology is the reduction in the optical power. Silicon Photonics technology is not matures as of yet, the industry specialist is expecting a few of the packaging standards for Silicon Photonics coming up in near future. This will inform the fabrication processes and silicon Photonics industry well in bloom after that.

Currently the North American region is the largest contributor to silicon Photonics product market. This mainly because of the extensive research and development is going on in this region. With the building management services it is now moving towards the cloud based services, the cost of service will again reduce gradually and; hence, the automation for smaller or less complex residential buildings would be much more affordable. This is a positive sign for the Asian region, which is currently experiencing a heavy growth in infrastructure and construction activities, and where the average income of the common population is not as high as that in Europe. Most of the major global players have a good presence in Europe and North America. However, such companies are far from establishing themselves completely in the Asian region. Local giants, especially in China, are surely expected to make their job tougher to a great extent. Nevertheless, the penetration of this market through mergers and acquisitions with the local players would surely increase the revenue of the global players to a great extent. While all the other regions are expected to grow at less than 20% CAGR, the Asian region is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 20% during the forecast period.
