Laser Diode Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023

$ 1499


Laser diodes, also known as diode lasers, are semiconductor devices which produce coherent radiation in the visible or infrared (IR) spectrum when electric current passes through them. They are small in size and weight, and have low power requirements which make them highly efficient in nature and ideal for portable electronic equipment. They are used in devices such as compact disc (CD) players, optical fibre systems, remote-control devices, laser printers and intrusion detection systems which are used in diverse industries like communication and optical storage, image recording, instrumentation and sensor, entertainment and agriculture. The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Laser Diode Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, finds that the global laser diode market reached a value of US$ 7 Billion in 2017.

Various applications of laser diodes in diverse sectors are driving the growth of the market. The light emitted by laser diodes can be adjusted according to the requirement as they have a broad range of wavelengths. Owing to this, laser diode technologies are used for a variety of procedures in the healthcare sector, such as LASIK surgery, hair and tattoo removal, body contouring, reducing wrinkles and skin resurfacing. Additionally, these diodes find several applications in the industrial sector including welding, soldering, cladding, micromachining and surface hardening. Further, laser diodes are used in headlamps for luxury cars where they provide a longer range of light as compared to LED headlamps. The rising demand for these headlamps in the automotive sector is expected to boost the consumption of laser diodes. According to the report, the market is expected to reach a value of US$ 12 Billion by 2023, exhibiting a CAGR of 9.4% during 2018-2023.
