  • Increasing demand for automation in the manufacturing industry

The demand for automation in the manufacturing sector is rising Increasing adoption of photonics is one of the key factors that has helped to drive growth in this market. Automation in the manufacturing sector, as well as an increasing number of Iot enabled devices for monitoring applications. Industry is now aware of the reliability and long-term financial success created by automated systems based on photonics.


  • Lack of Industry Standards

 The market for photonic sensors is becoming more and more widespread in the retail sector. However, there are few recognised standards related to their functioning. In addition, photonic sensors use a variety of technologies such as lasers, fibre optic and bio photonics. Only when they differ from one another do these technologies work together. Market expansion could be further hampered by the low image quality provided by the sensors and the lack of awareness.

  • Technical difficulties in installing and maintaining equipment


  • Growing demand for photonic transducers

  • Increasing the use of photonic sensors in consumer electronics,

  • The use of photonic sensors in industrial processes for temperature sensing and control

  • Industry 4.0


  • Security and safety Concerns

Increased security and safety solution needs to be developed Increased safety and security measures are offered by photonic sensors, which are of major concern to end users. In the past, manual security and safety systems required continuous physical monitoring; however, these sensors allow the system to operate autonomously and provide the end user with a sense of security. By collecting and keeping data on a centralised server, the automatic system works very effectively.

  • The cost of photonic sensors and detectors is high


Russia and Ukraine accounted for about 30 % of global neon supply, on a regular basis. Other projections based on values from market research firm TECHCET place this figure between 40% and 50%. According to Trend Force, Ukraine supplied almost 70% of the world's neon gas capacity before the war broke out. However, the estimated that 90% of the global supply of high purity neonates is consumed by the production of semiconductors. And it as much as possible The US semiconductor industry imports 90% of its high purity neon’s from Ukraine. 'The impact of this conflict on China's photonic and laser industries is limited in terms of scope,' 'The reason's simple.' With Ukraine, China does not do a great deal to import or export. In addition, China's rise as a domestic producer of photonics has allowed the country to support its own development. reliance insofar as it relates to its photonics ecosystem. China's rapid growth in domestic production of lasers and particularly fibre lasers has been a contributory factor.

Impact of Economic Downturn:

The vast diversity of applications allowed by photonics is a double eco, The promise of nomics and the policy challenges. Technical progress, on the one hand, In the basic principles of photonics, it may have a broad impact in many ways Application and economic sectors. This diversity, on the other hand, means that monitoring of public and private investment, employment, output, and it is difficult to deal with other economic aspects of photonics. Photonics is a wide area of technology Rather than an industry. 'The economic impact of photonics'. There's not a single North American in there, of course. Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes that enable the tracking of Revenue, employment and industry R&D Spending on photonics related fields, and we do not have enough data about government research and development spending in photonics. The lack of this information reduces the chances’ ability of photonics in the industrial community and hinder its use, opment of more coherent.

14. Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
