Laser Diode Market Growing At 12.6 Percent CAGR

Global market expected to be worth $10.26 billion by 2020

Transparency Market Research's (TMR) latest findings on the global laser diode market suggest that it will grow at a CAGR of 12.6 percent from 2014 to 2020. The market was valued at $4.6 billion in 2013 and is expected to be worth $10.26 billion by 2020, according to TMR.

The automotive segment accounted for 25.35 percent of the global laser diode market in terms of revenue in 2013. The same year saw market domination by feedback laser diode technology with 23.20 percent of the market share, while infrared laser diode technology held the wavelength segments by 26.20 percent.

AlGaInP based laser diodes led the market in 2013 due to their increasing preference in optical discs, DVD players, laser pointers, and data communication devices. The report expects this segment to keep growing throughout the forecast period.

The report "˜Laser Diode Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 "“ 2020' divides the global laser diode market according to its applications in consumer electronics, industries, automotives, medical, defense, healthcare, and others. Of these, the automotive segment dominated the market in 2013 because of its heavy use in engraving, lighting, molding and marking of automobile plastic in manufacturing plants.

TMR is a US-based market intelligence company.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
