VCSEL Market Size and Synopsis

Globally, the size of VCSEL Market is set to grow at a CAGR of 17.1% from a value of USD 1.65 Billion in 2018 to hit USD 4.86 Billion by 2027.

Vertical cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) is a type of laser diode that produces a high beam light quality for small mode areas. A VCSEL includes a laser resonator that helps the diode to emit light perpendicular to the chip surface where it is deployed. Although VCSELs can have high beam quality, these generally produce less output power with a large possibility for modulation in high frequencies, making it ideal for use in optical fiber communication. VCSELs are semiconductor devices with an operating wavelength of 750–980 nm when used with gallium arsenide (GaAs) material system. This wavelength is also helpful for applications such as gas sensing and quantum wells using dilute nitrides and indium phosphide material.

The major applications of VCSEL lie in high-speed communications, data centers, precision sensing applications, enterprise networks, touchless sensing, gesture recognition, and chip-to-chip interconnects, among others. The factors responsible for the growth of the VCSEL market include the growing adoption of VCSEL in automotive electronics applications and increasing usage of VCSEL in data communications. The usage of VCSEL market also lies in two-dimensional fabrication array making in an individual die with separate light sources, increasing the power output.
