Semiconductor Laser Market To Exceed $7.69 Billion By 2020

New report forecasts CAGR of 7.1 percent from 2014 to 2020

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research, the global semiconductor laser market is expected to cross a value of $7.69 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.1 percent from 2014 to 2020. The market was valued at $4.8 billion in 2013.

 'Semiconductor Lasers Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020' categorises  semiconductor lasers into fibre optic laser, VCSELs, compact disc lasers, high power diode lasers, red lasers, violet lasers, green lasers and blue lasers.

Emerging technologies such as green, blue and violet lasers are expected to gain market share steadily with continuous development in output power and brightness, according to the report. 

High power diode lasers are expected to observe the fastest growth in the semiconductor lasers market, growing at a CAGR of 8.6 percent over the forecast period.

Communication is the largest application segment for semiconductor lasers and accounted for 32.2 percent of revenue share in the global market. 

Asia Pacific represents the largest as well as the fastest growing semiconductor lasers markets. In 2013, Asia Pacific accounted for 37.5 percent of revenue share in the global semiconductor laser market. Growing communication industry in major countries such as China, India, South Korea, Japan, and Australia amongst other is the primary growth factor for this market. Europe and North America are expected to observe steady growth throughout the forecast period with improving economic conditions in the major countries of these regions.

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.
