Global Market for Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers to Reach Nearly $2.1 Billion by 2018; Optical Communications Market to Dominate In the Coming Years

August 04, 2014

BCC Research ( reveals in its new report, VERTICAL-CAVITY SURFACE-EMITTING LASERS (VCSEL): TECHNOLOGIES AND GLOBAL MARKETS, the global market for vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) is expected to reach to nearly $2.1 billion by 2018, registering a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 33.1%. The optical fiber data transmission segment is expected to record highest growth with $615.1 million by 2018 and a CAGR of 31.2% during the forecast period.

The use of VCSELs has increased in the optical communications industry in the past 15 years. The growing demand in consumer electronics products and other high-end applications such as gesture recognition and 3D imaging have spurred the demand of VCSELs.

The VCSEL market is expected to grow from $361.0 million in 2012 to nearly $2.1 billion in 2018, at an anticipated CAGR of 33.1%. VCSELs dominating the optical communications market are expected to be a prevalent source in coming years. Analog broadband signal transmission and absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) are predicted to record the highest CAGRs of 37.3% and 37.2% respectively.

“While edge emitters can’t be tested until the end of the production process, VCSELs can be tested any time in the production process,” says BCC Research analyst Sinha G. “This saves time for manufacturers and gives the best quality product in the end.”

VERTICAL-CAVITY SURFACE-EMITTING LASERS (VCSEL): TECHNOLOGIES AND GLOBAL MARKETS provides an overview of the current and future of the global VCSEL market. It intends to understand opportunities and innovation-driven VCSEL market highlights, and the major regions and countries involved in such developments over the next five years. Identifying segments with high growth potential along with understanding future applications of given segments is also discussed. In addition, key trends related to the applications, raw materials and colors (wavelength range) that shape and influence the photonic IC market have been covered in this report.
