Abstract
The major market forces which have influenced investment and development in the Optical Thin Film Industry are reviewed. The current state-of-the-art resulting from these forces is examined in some depth with reference to two typical products. Probable directions for future growth are explored with respect to current market forces--particularly energy needs--and historical trends in the industry.
