This paper investigates the main actors, emerging markets and applications of visible light communication (VLC). VLC is a relatively new optical wireless communication technology where light emitting diodes (LEDs) are used to transmit data. Investigating the emerging trends such as technical, political, social, economic, environmental, and regulatory, scenario planning tool is used to develop multiple plausible scenarios using the key identified uncertainties. Scenario planning tool is used for long range business planning and decision making under conditions of substantial uncertainty. In this paper, we apply Schoemaker's scenario planning method to identify and analyze the key uncertainties and to construct four different and plausible future scenarios for VLC. From the value point of view, the developed four scenarios have shown different implications to the actors (operator, device manufacturer, content provider ) of VLC technology and their business models.
