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.

According to our research Silicon Photonics will be the game changer for Datacom applications. As mentioned earlier amount of data being generated is increasing rapidly. Current infrastructures are not enough to cater all of this data. Hence global data centers are concentrating on increasing data processing and reducing carbon footprint. For instance, we can say single silicon Photonics chip will not reduce power consumption at large, but when millions and trillions of such chips used in a large huge amount of power will get saved.
