Visible Light Communication (VLC) is one of the advanced optical wireless communication technologies, in which light in the visible region (375nm-780nm) is used as a medium for data transfer. VLC technology uses the existing lighting infrastructure like LEDs as transmitters with a few alternatives. Using LEDs for illumination and transmission will be economical in the long run as they consume less power and are more durable as compared to the other lighting sources such as incandescent and fluorescent lamps.
Early buyers will receive 10% customization on this report.
The European VLC market is emerging mainly because of several activities undertaken by the government, such as ban the high power consuming incandescent bulbs and replace those with LEDs in order to lower green house gas emissions and energy use. This replacement is faster in the European region as compared to other geographical regions. Countries contributing towards the European VLC market are the U.K., Germany, France, and Italy. VLC is cost effective, thus it becomes a promising technology for future, since it is of low cost. Moreover, it is based on LEDs, which are getting cheaper as technology is evolving. It provides both illumination and communication, contributing to money saving. The companies and academic institutes that are active in VLC technology research & development in Europe include PureVLC Ltd (U.K.), Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft (Germany), OLEDcomm - France Li-Fi (France), University of Edinburgh (U.K.), University of Oxford,

North America Visible light communication Market
Visible light communication (VLC) technology, one of the advanced optical wireless communication technologies, in which light in the visible region (375nm-780nm) is used as a medium for data transfer. This transfer of data is secure, and the data transfer rates is high as compared to conventional wireless technologies like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Wimax, which use radio waves for communication. Till late 1990s, infrared spectrum was used for the communication. But in the early 2000s, researchers started using visible light from LEDs as the medium for communication. Initially, they were able to achieve network speed of about 100 Kbps. With continuous developments, VLC systems can now achieve about 800Mbps data rate for short-range communications. Many companies and research institutes are conducting research to develop and commercialize Gigabit networks for long-range communications.
Free space optics (FSO) is based on the same principle as VLC but it uses light in the infrared spectrum for communication. Invention of the RONJA device in 2001, which can achieve 10 Mbps network speed over 0.87 miles, boosted the research activities in the FSO technology. FSO was initially used for outdoor communication applications. But in the recent times, indoor applications like enterprise connectivity and hospitals are emerging. FSO is expected to play a major role in enterprise connectivity especially in emerging nations like India and Brazil, where the reach of ICT and fiber connectivity is still low.

Reliability and network coverage are the major issues to be considered by the companies while providing VLC services. Interferences from external light sources like sun light, normal bulbs, and opaque materials in the path of transmission will cause interruption in the communication. High installation cost of the VLC systems can be complemented by large-scale implementation of VLC. Adopting VLC technology will reduce further operating costs like electricity charges, and maintenance charges.
Asia-Pacific Visible light communication Market
Visible light communication technology is still in the introductory phase. Indoor networking and location-based services are the only applications that have quite penetrated the market. Products for other applications (intelligent traffic management system, in-flight entertainment, and underwater communication) have hit the market by the end of 2013. VLC may be implemented as a complementary technology to the existing wireless networks. It is expected to penetrate M2M communication, smart cities, power over Ethernet (PoE), wireless sensor networks, ubiquitous networks, and augmented reality after five years.
Unlike VLC technology, FSO technology is commercialized in the market for quite some time. FSO technology is majorly used in military and aerospace applications due its secure and high speed data transmission rates. FSO is expected to be deployed in MAN (metropolitan area network), service acceleration, and last mile connectivity applications in the near future.
