Importance & Scope

Photonics is the science of light (photon) generation, detection, and manipulation through emission, transmission, modulation, signal processing, switching, amplification, and detection/sensing. Though covering all light's technical applications over the whole spectrum, most photonic applications are in the range of visible and near-infrared light.

The core aim of Photonics 2016 conference is to provide an opportunity for the delegates to meet, interact and exchange new ideas in the various areas of Lasers, Optics and Photonics.

Why to attend?

Photonics 2017 conference paves a platform to globalize the research by installing a dialogue between industries and academic organizations and knowledge transfer from research to industry. Photonics 2017 aims in proclaim knowledge and share new ideas amongst the professionals, industrialists and students from research areas of Photonics and all the related disciplines to share their research experiences and indulge in interactive discussions and special sessions at the event.

Photonics is a fast-growing business sector, with a global market of around € 350 billion, projected to reach over € 600 billion by 2020. Europe has established a strong position with an overall total share of approximately 18 %1 (€ 66 billion2 in 2012 ) Major growth is expected in lighting, medical technologies and life sciences, laser-based manufacturing and optical communications. These are the areas where the European Photonics industry is particularly strong

The Italy region, with its strong economy, expanding network communications and increased investment in research and Development, offers investment opportunities to wide range of sectors. The most dominant sectors presently include logistics and transport, tourism, machinery, iron and steel, chemical and petrochemical, electronics, ceramics and construction materials, (non-metallic minerals), metallurgy, textile and footwear, printing industry, paper and plastics manufacturing.

  • Production technology: Laser machines and lasers are produced by Prima Industrie, Datalogic / Laservall, El.En., and about 30 smaller companies. The total production volume is estimated at EUR 200 … 250 million.
  • Optical communications: Ericsson, due to the takeover of Marconi in 2005, produces optical networking systems in Italy.
  • In the solar energy sector Italy accounts for a production volume of EUR 100 million

Global photonics market value is expected to grow at a CAGR of 35% from 2015 to 2020

World Market Photonics:-

Today, the global market for photonics is estimated to be approximately €350 billion, and the leveraged impact of photonics in other enabled industries is substantially greater in terms of turnover and employment levels. This market is expected to grow significantly over the next few years, with the estimated market size approaching €480 billion by 2015.

Europe performs a major proportion of the world’s research into basic photonics and achieves excellent R&D results, providing Europe with a world leading position. However, Europe needs to strengthen the industrial deployment of these research results by promoting wide-scale cooperation and greater integration across the whole research and innovation value chain. Therefore, it is necessary to rebalance the funding within the new Framework Programme Horizon 2020, so as to provide an increased budget of funding to applied research and demonstration programmes for photonics.
