Montana Optics and Photonics Industry Survey

Beginning in 2014 the Montana Photonics Industry Alliance has compiled annual surveys of the optics and photonics organizations in the state. The objective of the surveys is to better understand the employment and payroll impact of Montana’s optics and photonics industry on the state; and to identify ways in which the Montana Photonics Industry Alliance can help these organizations become world leaders.

Highlights of the 2015 survey included statistics that showed total employment to be 517 and a forecast headcount growth rate of 9% for the year (13% excluding MSU).   The full survey results can be obtained by clicking the links below.
