The UK Photonics Leadership Group, which represents the UK photonics industry, has published a draft report regarding the opportunities for future growth within the UK photonics sector. Where and how companies can dominate the photonics market are outlined in the report, which is written as a guide for developing business strategy and research direction.

The draft states that due to the diverse field of use for photonics solutions, supply is a large contributor to the market with UK companies exporting between 75 to 95 per cent of their output.

The analysis is based on a roadmap provided by Photonics21, which is the basis for the European Commission’s investment for the next seven years. The analysis is split into a number of sections representing major photonics sectors, which are: optical communications; manufacturing, materials processing and industrial photonics; photonics for health and life sciences or bio-photonics; and lighting and displays.
