Global Wafer Level Optics Market, By Type, By Application & Forecasts to 2027: Rising Demand for Ever Smaller Micro Optics with Wafer Level Optics - ResearchAndMarkets.com

·4 min read

DUBLIN, October 27, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Wafer Level Optics Market, By Type, By Application, Estimation & Forecast, 2017 - 2027" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global wafer level optics (WLO) market held a market size of about USD 328.5 million in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 4,454.3 million by the year 2027 at a CAGR of 47% from 2017 to 2027. The market had a volume of about 519.2 million units in 2020.

Optical products manufactured using semiconductor process on wafers is known as wafer level optics. The market is anticipated to be driven by the supply chain collaborations and increasing demand for ever smaller micro optics. Despite the driving factors, the commotion in the electronics industry post the US China trade war is estimated to restrain the market growth.

The miniaturization trend and the increasing demand for compact technical products is majorly influencing the production of micro-optical components. Plastic optics can be manufactured with low cost using various replication methods. Wafer-based manufacturing use hundreds of small plastic optics can be modeled on a large glass wafer, which measures up to 300mm. Wafer-scale micro-optics fabrication based on semiconductor based technology. Numerous components are fabricated in parallel on a wafer. These factors are increasing the demand for ever smaller micro optics with wafer level optics, hence boosting the market growth.

The micro lens array segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate of about 49.6%. These are arrays of tiny, sub-millimeter lenses used in various optical applications, such as light field cameras, CCD arrays, 3D imaging & displays, optical microscopes, LiDAR systems, and optical sensors, among others. The uniform compound eye lens is estimated to reach around USD 935.8 million by 2027.

The consumer electronics segment is anticipated account for the largest volume share of around 85% owing to rising application of wafer level optics in consumer electronics applications. The laser medical segment is anticipated to witness the fastest volume CAGR of about 51.4%.

Major players in the global wafer level optics (WLO) market include EV Group, China Wafer Level CSP Co., Ltd., AMS AG., Himax Technologies, Inc., Corning, Zhuhai MultiscaleOptoelectronics Technology Co.,Ltd, and AAC Technologies, among others.
