LED And Optical Markets Continue Growth In 2010

Strategy Analytics, in its latest report, says that the industries were sustained by material, equipment and product introductions.

Strategy Analytics says that the optoelectronics segment of the compound semiconductor industry continued to grow into the close of 2010. This was driven by trends like broader adoption of LEDs for general and automotive lighting applications, as well as increased performance demand by the optical transport market. The recently published Strategy Analytics GaAs and Compound Semiconductor Technologies Service (GaAs) viewpoint, “Compound Semiconductor Industry Review September-November 2010: Optoelectronics, Materials & Equipment" captures significant product, financial, contract and technology announcements for optoelectronic companies during the September to November 2010 time-period. “A good sign for this industry segment is the strength of new orders and revenue growth reported by makers of long-lead fabrication, manufacturing and test equipment, like Aixtron and Veeco," noted Eric Higham, Director of the Strategy Analytics GaAs and Compound Semiconductor Technologies Service. “Adoption of LEDs and higher performance for optical transport networks is fueling investment to meet demand and product development to meet new requirements." The report summarizes financial reports from major LED, LASER, photovoltaic, material and equipment vendors like IQE, Kopin, Oclaro, Cree, JDSU, Aixtron, Veeco and GigOptix.  The publication also covers providers of a variety of optical and significant contract, technology, materials, expansion and employment developments in the industry.
