Silicon photonics is an emerging technology which is designed to deal with the problem of huge amount of data. This is possible through high density photonics integration with photonic devices. Moreover, these integrated photonics works closely with energy efficient network operation. Silicon photonics is the perfect solution for such high density photonic integration which allows incorporation of photonic devices made of silicon on a silicon wafer. Silicon photonics is translucent and has a refractive index in the range of 1200-1700 nm telecommunication wavelength. Thus, it is used to build very dense photonic devices. Since, silicon is a semiconductor, it is helpful in performing various functions such as optical modulation. Silicon based devices are highly reliable and are capable of producing mass production at much cheaper rate. 

Silicon photonics market is expected to show a remarkable growth in the next 5 years. The factors driving the growth of this market include price, capability, and size. As the price of silicon photonics technology is showing a constant downfall, its demand has been extensively increasing in all the verticals including healthcare, telecommunication and defense among others. Over the years, major players are showing interest in silicon photonics market. Players like Intel Corporation, Cisco Systems, Inc., IBM Corporation and Juniper Networks, Inc. among others are investing to a large extent in silicon photonics market in order to improvise their products as well as to capture a major market share.
