The global laser diode market reached a value of around US$ 8 Billion in 2020. A laser diode, also known as a diode laser, refers to a semiconductor device which generates coherent radiation in the visible or infrared (IR) spectrum when current passes through it. It is similar to a light-emitting diode, wherein a laser beam is created at the diode's junction. As the light consists of a single frequency, it can be focused on a very small point by using a simple lens system. Laser diodes are small in size, light in weight and have low power requirements which make them highly efficient in nature and ideal for portable electronic equipment. Due to this, they are used in various devices such as barcode readers, autonomous vehicles, laser printers, fiber optic communications and security systems. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global laser diode market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
