Optical materials are objects which can manipulate the direction in which the light flows by transmission, reflection, absorption, focus or refraction of an optical beam. The efficiency of this manipulation depends on the interaction between light and the matter. Materials which allow complete transmission of light are known as transparent materials, materials which transmit light diffusely are called translucent materials and materials which block the light and do not allow any of its transmission are called opaque materials. Optical materials are widely used in numerous applications across consumer as well as industrial sector. Therefore growing usage of optical materials in various industrial sectors such as construction industry, automotive and aerospace industry drives the global market for optical materials. Utilization of semiconductors for consumer electronics will also boost the demand for optical materials. However, the expenditure incurred to fabricate optical materials is high which can pose as a threat to the market growth.
