Yole Webcast On The Laser Diode Market
Webcast on the 21st October will cover laser diode market trends, emerging applications, and future developments
Yole Développement, II-VI Incorporated and System Plus Consulting will be doing a webcast on the 21st October about general laser diode market trends, emerging applications, future technological and industrial developments.
Laser diodes (LDs) found their sweet spot in the 1990s as a light source for optical transceivers. VCSELs started to be used in data communications and edge-emitting lasers (EELs) in telecommunications. Further refinements and the Internet drove the LD market, with each technology following its own path.
However, EELs were increasingly used in different industries, finding growth opportunities in areas like material processing and optical storage. Applications like displays, sensing and medical are still emerging. VCSELs took more time to find strong growth drivers, but the smartphone boom created a window of opportunity. VCSELs found their killer application in 3D sensing. Overall, in historical and emerging applications, laser diodes could represent a potential business opportunity of around $9B in 2026, says Yole.
