Paper Abstract

In order to better understand where holography has been and how it might develop commercially, the Holotron Corporation surveyed a number of organizations and individuals currently, or formerly, active in the field. 1975 sales are estimated to be in the $2-$4 Million/year range; including HNDT, computer memories and display applications. Holography may be emerging from a "search for applications" phase and by 1980, sales could be in the $27-$38 Million/year range. This growth would require an improved economic climate for new technology, a more optimistic attitude among management personnel regarding holography and the involvement of substantial companies.
