First Portrait of the Quebec Photonics Industry

Optonique is proud to present the first economic overview of the Quebec Photonics Industry.  In partnership with EB Data, LJD Conseils and TECHNOCompétences,  this industry study highlights the economic strength of photonics in Quebec:

  • Photonics contributes $3 billions to Quebec economy, which is equivalent to the pharmaceutical industry.
  • The 220+ companies generate 22,000 high paying jobs which have been growing at a 6% rate since 2016 – generating over 1300 new jobs per year in Quebec

The study also shows that an important majority of companies in the field are exporting internationally, even the smallest ones (under 10 employees). Photonics are especially used in health sciences, aeronautics and advanced manufacturing industries.
