Optoelectronics CS Segment to Maintain Momentum Into 2011
Strategy Analytics says the compound semiconductor industry will see further growth in the next few months and anticipates that Philips Lumileds, Finisar, JDSU and Oclaro will continue to benefit from market conditions.
Strategy Analytics sees strength in the optoelectronics segment of the compound semiconductor industry.
This is based on December announcements of new products, financial results, new market entrants, equipment orders and capacity expansion.
The recently published “Compound Semiconductor Industry Review December 2010: Optoelectronics, Materials and Equipment,” captures the product, technology, contract and financial announcements for optoelectronic companies such as Aixtron, Finisar, Philips Lumileds, Emcore, JDSU, Oclaro, Agilent and Soitech for December 2010.
“Green energy consumption and production trends are driving the adoption of light emitting diodes (LEDs), photovoltaic devices and the equipment to manufacture and measure these items,” noted Eric Higham, Director of the Strategy Analytics GaAs and Compound Semiconductor Technologies Service.
“The December optoelectronic announcements serve as further evidence that this segment of the compound semiconductor industry will continue to grow in 2011.”
Asif Anwar, Director in the Strategy Analytics Strategic Technologies Practice added, “The latest announcements show that the optoelectronics industry is undertaking capacity and technology improvements to sustain growth into 2011.”
This viewpoint summarises December 2010 financial, product, contract and employment announcements from major optoelectronic material, device and equipment suppliers. Strategy Analytics categorises these announcements by material and equipment, laser, LED and compound photovoltaic activity.
