Global Light Fidelity (Li-Fi) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Light Fidelity (Li-Fi) is a technology that uses light to transmit data. It is similar to Wi-Fi, but uses light instead of radio waves. This makes it much faster and more secure.


Photodetectors are detectors for light. They are electronic devices that respond to incident light by generating an electric current. The main application of photodetectors is in detecting and measuring optical properties such as reflectance, transmittance, fluorescence, phosphorescence and luminescence of a substance or material.


LED is a light source used in various applications such as automotive, consumer electronics, and commercial lighting. LED is an advanced form of light bulb which includes many benefits over the traditional bulbs. The major benefit of LED is that it uses less power compared to conventional lights; this makes it more energy-efficient and useful for longer periods with fewer charging cycles. It also has better color rendering capabilities than incandescent lamps making them ideal for use in outdoor applications where appearance plays a key role.

Application Insights:

The consumer electronics segment accounted for the largest market share in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growing adoption of Li-Fi in smartphones, tablets, laptops and smartwatches is anticipated to drive demand from 2018 to 2030. Moreover, increasing penetration of 4G technology across the globe has paved way for new data communication standards including Wi-Fi which also benefits the overall market growth.

Light fidelity emulates a wireless network just like Wi-Fi does but it has an advantage over conventional networks as it uses light instead of radio waves for data transmission hence named as Li-Fi or Light Fidelity. It provides high security as no physical contact is required between devices communicating through light fidelity protocol thus making it ideal choice among consumers looking forward secure wireless connections at home or while on move. Furthermore, many major brands are coming up with their own proprietary products leveraging this technology thereby driving its demand further over the forecast period (see figure below).

Regional Analysis:

Europe was the largest regional market in 2017 and accounted for over 35% of the global revenue share. The European Commission has announced its plan to make all buildings connected by 2025, which will create a huge demand for light-based internet access. Moreover, several initiatives are being taken up to provide free public Wi-Fi in various countries such as Finland and Sweden. Such developments are expected to increase awareness regarding Li-Fi technology and propel growth over the next eight years.

Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest growing region with a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing high adoption rates of emerging technologies coupled with rising disposable income levels among consumers especially in China and Japan resulting from economic growth along with increasing government spending on defense & security applications driving demand across developing countries such as India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for high-speed internet: The need for high-speed internet is increasing day by day, especially in the developed countries. Li-Fi can provide speeds up to 10 Gbps, which is many times faster than the current average speed of Wi-Fi. This will attract more users to Li-Fi and help in its growth.
  • Government initiatives: Governments of various countries are taking initiatives to promote the use of Li-Fi technology. For example, in 2015, Estonian government announced a project called “Estonia 100” which aims to make Estonia one of the first countries in the world with a nationwide infrastructure for optical wireless communication (Li-Fi). Such government initiatives will help in boosting the growth of Li-Fi market worldwide.
  • Growing awareness about benefits of Li-Fi: Awareness about benefits offered by Li-Fi technology is growing rapidly among consumers as well as businesses worldwide. Some key benefits offered by this technology include increased security, higher bandwidth and faster data transmission rates as compared to traditional WiFI technologies etc.). This is helping in driving wider adoption of this technology across different sectors such as education, healthcare etc..
