Dublin, Feb. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global FSO & VLC/Li-Fi Market by FSO Component, FSO Application, FSO Vertical, VLC Component (LED, Photodetector, Microcontroller, Software), Transmission Type, VLC Application, and Region (Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, RoW) - Forecast to 2028" report has been added to's offering.

The global FSO & VLC/Li-Fi market is projected to grow from USD 3.3 billion in 2023 to USD 18.2 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 40.3% during the forecast period.

Market for healthcare and underwater communication applications to grow at higher CAGR during forecast period

The FSO market for healthcare applications and the VLC market for underwater communication applications are expected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period. FSOs are hugely deployed in healthcare applications where wireless communication through radio waves is not allowed due to potential health hazards.

On the other hand, underwater communications rely on acoustic technologies that limit the speeds to a fraction of terrestrial wireless systems. RF does not work underwater, but visible light can support high-speed data transmission over short distances in this environment. VLC can be a safe alternative to RF communication and serve the purpose of this untapped application area.

Asia-Pacific to witness highest growth among other regions during forecast period

Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the FSO & VLC/Li-Fi market during the forecast period. The region is projected to account for the largest share of the FSO and VLC by 2025. The FSO and VLC market here is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Increasing manufacturing facilities, advanced infrastructure, and the growing computer-aided design (CAD) industry are driving the FSO market here.

Also, with the recent developments and increased expenditure on VLC-related R&D activities, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to be the fastest-growing market for VLC during the forecast period. Similarly, end-user industries such as automotive, aerospace & defense, and consumer electronics are expected to create huge opportunities for VLC or Li-Fi solution providers.
