Photonics21 WG 5: Security, Metrology and Sensors
 
Swiss Security, Metrology and Sensors Market - SWOT analysis
Photonics Enabled Industries
Strengths Weakness
  • Good research platform on component
    level.
  • Human resources and research
    institutes well setup to support
    this sector.
  • Companies with broad technical
    capabilities to realize and integrate
    products for the defense
    market.
 
  • Lack of government support.
  • Only selective industrial activities.
  • No major programs for joint development
    efforts.
  • Limited production volume.
  • No strong national market leading
    to limited demand.
  • Potential Swiss Supplier (SMEs)
    and major customers not well
    connected.
 
Opportunities Threats
  • Swiss products with high quality
    standards.
  • Highly regarded and reliable in
    this field.
 
  • Strong outside competition on
    component level (low cost).
  • Reduction of public spending for
    defense and security products.
  • Swiss neutrality leads to a general
    reduction in defense activities?
