Co-packaged optics component sales to exceed $1.3 billion by 2025: CIR

Aug. 18, 2022
Markets for Co-Packaged Optics 2022-2030 examines the latest developments in connectivity, lasers, and cooling systems for CPO as well as showing how CPO modules will be used in four types of data center.

Communications Industry Researchers (CIR) states in a new report that sales of components for co-packaged optics (CPO) will surpass $1.3 billion in 2025. The market research firm asserts in Markets for Co-Packaged Optics 2022-2030 that sales will more than double from that point to $2.7 billion by 2028 (see graph above).

CIR notes that industry momentum in support of CPO is building, as exemplified by SENKO's recent purchase of Cudoform (see "SENKO buys CudoForm for co-packaged optics play"). Meanwhile, emphasis is being placed on cooling systems and external lasers. CIR analysts also note Intel’s demonstration of an eight-wavelength silicon laser array for integration into a CPO package. While such gathering of resources won’t result in significant CPO deployments until 2027, it’s clear that industry is prepping now for that milestone, according to the market research firm.

Markets for Co-Packaged Optics 2022-2030 examines the latest developments in connectivity, lasers, and cooling systems for CPO as well as showing how CPO modules will be used in four types of data center. The report forecasts CPO from 2022 to 2030 with breakouts by type of data center and location (inter-building/inter-machine or rack/server) in the data center. The report places a strong emphasis on CPO's impact on the optoelectronic supply chain in the wake of both technological change and geopolitical developments. Key companies discussed include AMD, Anritsu, Ayar Labs, Broadcom, Furukawa Electric, GlobalFoundries, IBM, Marvell, Lumentum, Ranovus, SENKO, TE Connectivity, Xilinx, and others.
