The optoelectronics field consists of wide range of devices such as LEDs and elements, information displays, optical storages, remote sensing systems, and optical communication systems. The optoelectronic devices offer superior performance with high beam quality and low energy consumption, at minimal cost of devices. The sensitive optoelectronic components mainly operate in potentially high temperature environments, active thermoelectric coolers which are used for temperature stabilization to ensure maximum performance and long-life operation. The sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had a strong impact on businesses worldwide. The demand for optoelectronics witnessed impact due to the shutdown of consumer electronics, automobile, industrial, and other manufacturing facilities across the globe. However, the market is expected to gain traction in 2021 with the opening up of manufacturing facilities at their full operating capacity to meet the growing demand for optoelectronic components across various industry verticals.

The Impact of COVID-19 on the Optoelectronics Market

The sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on public health as well as businesses. To stop the spread of the virus, governments worldwide imposed lockdowns, consequently shutting down on-premise business processes and manufacturing operations and disrupting supply chains and production schedules. This scenario led to a demand-supply gap of components required in residential and healthcare applications. The demand for optoelectronics witnessed a dip due to the shutdown of consumer electronics, automobile, industrial, and other manufacturing facilities across the globe. Moreover, Asia-Pacific being the hub of semiconductor manufacturing and China, the epicenter of the virus outbreak, led to huge losses during the first and second quarters of 2020. However, the market is expected to gain traction in 2021, with manufacturing facilities resuming operations at full capacity to meet the growing demand for optoelectronic components across various industry verticals.
