Market outlook of the visible light communication market

Technavio expects the global visible light communication (VLC) market to grow at a very optimistic rate, posting a CAGR of almost 64% during the forecast period. Visible light communication is a wireless technology that uses light emanated by LED bulbs to provide a network for high-speed communication parallel to Wi-Fi. This technology is a faster and cheaper optical version of Wi-Fi. The market growth was predominantly driven by the increasing adoption of visible light communications for indoor networking.

One major factor contributing enormously to the growth of the market is the availability of high bandwidth. The bandwidth frequency spectrum offered by visible light is larger than that of radio frequency bandwidth, which ensures the accommodation of more users and thereby, achieving higher transfer rates. Thus, the high bandwidth availability is expected to be the biggest attraction of this technology fuelling growth of the visible light communication market.
