Methodology

Primary as well as secondary research was used to evaluate the market. Top-down and bottom-up models were developed to determine volume as well as value wise trends and an estimation of the global market for photonic integrated circuits. Key participants in the market for PICs have been identified through a review of secondary sources such as industry white papers, annual reports, financial reports and published interviews of key opinion leaders (KOLs) from leading companies. During the primary interviews, the KOLs suggested other manufacturers of PICs that were not included in the initial scope of the study. We have further refined the company profile chapter by adding those manufacturers, as suggested by the KOLs. Generally, KOLs include chief executive officers (CEOs), general managers, vice presidents, sales directors, market executives, R&D directors, product managers,procurement managers, export managers, etc. During the research process, the major stakeholders across the value chain of the market for PICs were contacted for primary interviews.

In the first phase of the study, market revenues and volumes of PICs were determined by reviewing annual sales reports, analyzing related industry reports, tracking global import and export trends, and monitoring financial parameters related to the market. In the second phase of the study, we conducted primary interviews with KOLs from leading companies in the market to verify our initial estimation gathered through secondary sources. Based on the primary interviews, some of the initial findings were validated and other initial findings were refined. Final values and volume forecasts of the market for PICs were derived through a series of primary interviews with KOLs.

For some segments of the market for PICs, no secondary data was available. In those cases, price trends, inflation rates, industrial production indices, purchasing managers' indices (PMIs), etc. were used to estimate data for those market segments. During the primary interviews, these estimates were verified by KOLs.
