As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Laser Diode Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025,” the global laser diode market size reached US$ 8.20 Billion in 2019. Laser diodes (LD), also known as injection lasers, are semiconductor devices that generate coherent radiation of high intensity in the visible or infrared (IR) spectrum when a current passes through. They can be focused on a very small point with the help of a simple lens system. As compared to conventional lasers, laser diodes are compact, lightweight, and require low current and voltage. Consequently, they are gaining immense traction across the globe and finding vast applications in laser printers, communications, optical fiber systems, compact disc (CD) players, remote-control devices, intrusion detection systems and industrial processing machinery.
Global Laser Diode Market Trends:
Laser diodes are utilized in a variety of procedures in the healthcare sector, which include LASIK surgery, skin resurfacing, body contouring, reducing wrinkles, and hair and tattoo removal. In line with this, the rising trend and acceptance of these medical procedures are escalating the demand for laser diodes across the globe. Apart from this, laser diodes are replacing conventional headlamp technologies as they have a longer range. Therefore, they are being used with LED lights as headlamps in luxury cars, which in turn is contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, some of the prominent players in the industry are investing in research and development (R&D) activities to create an array of technologies and introduce higher accuracy diodes at an affordable price point. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 12.75 Billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period (2020-2025).
