Report Snapshot


The global spatial light modulator market capitalization is projected to exceed USD 616.8 billion by 2023, as per a new report by Market Research Future (MRFR). It is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 13.8% during the assessment period (2018-2023). The growth is supplemented by increasing demand for high bandwidth speeds in the information technology sector and the boom experienced in the construction sector in economies of South America and Asia Pacific.


Spatial light modulator (SLM) is a device capable of modifying an optical wavefront in two dimensions. By modulating factors of a light beam such as phase, amplitude, and intensity, it can provide precise control over light waves. Liquid crystal materials are used in tandem with SLM to create graphic cards for personal computers. Major applications of SLM include holographic data storage, beam shaping, optical correlator, and others.


Rising demand for high-resolution displays in consumer electronics, gaming devices, and advertising is projected to open up new avenues for market growth. But lack of awareness regarding advantages of SLM and high costs of these devices can pose a challenge to manufacturers. Miniaturization of semiconductor chips which can reduce the weight of these devices can turn around the sales of SLM devices.
