Enabling the amazing


"More Light" for a global photonics group

We continue to develop Jenoptik into a truly global photonics company with our motto "More Light" that stands above all our initiatives for a successful, fast growing and profitable Jenoptik. We focus on our core competencies in photonics and optical technologies.

Photonics covers the basics and areas of use of optical methods and technologies that address the generation, transmission, shaping, and measurement of light. Photonics is a key enabling technology which is driven by and is advancing topics such as autonomous driving, digital production, new developments in the medical sector, and initiatives for more sustainability.

According to forecasts by market analysts, the global photonics market is expected to grow to approx. 921.7 billion US dollars in 2028, with an average annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.1 percent. This means that the photonics market is growing faster than the global economy – and thus offers outstanding opportunities for business and society.
