Optoelectronics Industry Overview

The optoelectronics market is semi-consolidated and is expected to remain innovation-led, with strategic alliances and frequent acquisitions adopted as the key strategies by the players to establish their presence. Meanwhile, companies SK Hynix Inc., Panasonic Corporation, Samsung Electronics, Omnivision Technologies Inc., and Sony Corporation are focusing on further developing value-added capabilities and optimizing product mix to maximize margins.

  • January 2024 - Osram Licht AG introduced the ALIYOS technology, which pushes the boundaries of multi-segmented area lighting and allows individualization of light emission patterns. Characteristics like transparency, thinness, and a high freedom of design differentiate customer’s lighting solutions. An ALIYOS-based lighting unit can configure the segmented mini-LEDs to display symbols, words, images, or abstract patterns for the purposes of decoration, information, or warning. Due to the special feature of transparency, several LED foils can be placed behind each other. A three-dimensional arrangement and the full brightness control of each segment, in combination with the transparency of the modules, enable completely new lighting and animation effects.
  • December 2023 - Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix joined to commercialize “On-sensor AI” technology for image sensors. They aim to elevate their image sensor technologies centered around AI and challenge the market leader, Japan’s Sony, to dominate the next-generation market. The company is currently conducting proof-of-concept research focused on facial and object recognition features, using a Computing In Memory (CIM) accelerator, a next-generation technology capable of performing multiplication and addition operations required for AI model computations.

  • February 2024 - TSMC, Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation, DENSO Corporation, and Toyota Motor Corporation announced further investment into Japan Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing, Inc. ("JASM"), TSMC's majority-owned manufacturing subsidiary in Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan, to build a second fab, which is scheduled to begin operation by the end of the 2027 calendar year. Together with JASM's first fab, which is scheduled to begin operation in 2024, the overall investment in JASM will exceed US$20 billion with strong support from the Japanese government.
  • January 2024 - Osram Licht AG launched a series of sidelooker, low-power LEDs that simplify design, are easier to implement and enables the creation of a homogeneous appearance in extended light bars and other automotive rear lighting applications. By replacing toplooker LEDs with the SYNIOS P1515 sidelookers, automotive manufacturers can achieve a smooth, homogeneous appearance across the vehicle's width. With the same number of LEDs as in a top-looker-based arrangement, an RCL or turn indicator can be produced with a far thinner and simpler optical assembly.
