VLC/Li-Fi Market Worth $101.30 Billion By 2024

Grand View Research says concern over cyber security will drive demand

The market for Visible Light Communication/Light Fidelity VLC/Li-Fi is expected to reach $101.30 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research. Increasing concern over cyber security is anticipated to drive demand over the forecast period.

According to the report, the demand for low power consumption is encouraging the development of advanced communication systems. While VLC is a disruptive technology expected to grab a substantial portion of the Wi-Fi industry, the adoption is at an early stage and focused on niche application. Therefore an extensive R&D investment would help market players to obtain a competitive advantage.

High illumination, longer life and low power consumption of has led the implementation of LED as a component in LiFi systems. Government promotions for smart LED bulbs in developed countries such as the US, and the UK are expected to provide a massive infrastructure base to the VLC system providers.

Increasing applications of indoor location-based services embedded with light fixtures in retail shops and hotels is projected to be one of the factors driving revenue growth.

Several companies such as GE Lightings, ByteLight including Koninklijk Philips are deploying VLC installations in supermarkets which in turn is aiding retailers to tie customers' shopping history by tracking their location details. This is helping the retailers to deliver on-site information tailored to a customer needs.

Advancements in the automotive industry are projected to enhance the safety of commuters. This is being executed through the vehicle to vehicle (V2V) and vehicle to the roadside (V2R) communication by installing LEDs in headlight and tail light of the vehicle. However, high installation and repair cost are projected to obstruct the large-scale implementation of these systems, especially in the emerging economies.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
