Case Study & Testimonials


A leading global communications company was looking to build ultra-high speed, ultra-high volume photonic networks. The client was interested in discovering the potential for all applications for these laser diodes with a view to possibly expanding into areas that were not traditional for the company. They decided to engage Frost & Sullivan to research and analyze the progress of these networks and provide insightful analysis and recommendations that would guide them in their decision-making.

The Process:

Frost & Sullivan’s team of emerging technology analysts identified and evaluated the potential applications for diode lasers of the required wavelength utilizing our extensive knowledge base in the subject and first-person interviews with technology developers in academic institutions, national labs, and leading companies.

With the views of scientists, engineers, strategic planners, and marketing experts in the marketplace for diode lasers, they identified the leading applications and ranked them based on the likelihood of an industry adoption. Next, analysts with expertise in electronics and laser applications interviewed end-user market participants in different industries globally to identify and evaluate operating technologies in this technical market space to give the client a complete view of the technology and its potential impact on the market.

Research Measurements:

Frost & Sullivan delivered a detailed report that identified different types of laser diode technologies in this market space, and identified the suitable applications for each type. The team projected the level of penetration of laser diodes in various applications. Additionally, major technology developers and end-users were identified and profiled for each industry, and the applications where the greatest growth was likely to occur were identified.


As a result of the efforts of Frost & Sullivan's global analyst team, the client was armed with the information it needed to make informed decisions on where to invest its time and money.
