EPIC Initiates Technology and Market Study on Photonics Technologies in the Automotive Industry

EPIC has signed a contract with market research and consultancy firm TEMATYS for carrying out an in-depth market and technology report of photonics technologies used in cars and for its manufacturing. Manufacturing includes laser systems used in welding, cutting, marking … as well as for acquiring information such as machine vision, reflectometry, thermography, profilometry, shearography … Photonics technologies are extensively used in the car for sensing and imaging, optical communication (MOST networks, Flexray), delivering information (screens, displays, GPS), lighting, (LED, OLED, laser), and energy such as photovoltaic.

“EPIC very much looks forward to this unique report that will help us in highlighting and promoting the role of photonics towards the automotive industry. The round-tables that will be organized between the members of EPIC and the automotive manufacturers will be a unique opportunity to get first-hand information on customer needs and expectations.” says Carlos Lee, Director General at EPIC, the European Photonics Industry Consortium.

The report will segment the applications, analyse the industrial value chains linked to the applications, and the technology trends and major challenges per application, and analyse market data and trends. The report will be of value to those in charge of sales/marketing and product strategy as well as those developing the technologies.

The report will be released in December in conjunction with CESA, the Congress on Automotive Electronic Systems, the most important automotive electronics conference in France. It will be available free of charge to EPIC members as part of their membership benefits, and available for purchase.

To receive a copy of the executive summary, or to participate in the development of the study, please contact carlos.lee@epic-assoc.com
