Global Diode Laser Market Size (2023 - 2030)

The global diode laser market is expected to reach USD 18.0 billion by 2030 from USD 10.84 billion in 2022 with a CAGR of 13% CAGR from 2023 - 2030. 

A laser diode is also known as a diode laser, is a semiconductor device, when electricity is passed through the device, coherent radiations are generated in the visible and infrared (IR) spectrum. Laser diodes are gaining familiarity and have become an important part of advanced technology. Diode lasers have got many applications across many sectors. 

As per the laser-focus world, laser materials processing systems increased 50% from 2016-2018. VCSELS are different types of laser diodes providing the best beam features, device scalability, thermal stability when compared with products like Fabry Perot Laser diodes. 

Lasers are used for processing plastics particularly in the healthcare sector for medical devices. Laser diodes are widely used over applications like industrial lasers, displays, automotive, industrial, and general lighting, etc. 

COVID-19 Impact on Diode Laser Market

The World Health Organization (WHO) announced world like a pandemic and public emergency issue. With the sudden eruption of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the diode lasers demand has fallen. Lack of raw material supply with a considerable reduction in the demand continued till the end of 2022, due to disturbances in the supply chain globally. Around 69% of the respondents are informed by their suppliers as there will be a lag in shipments due to the pandemic period, as per IPC's survey of electronic businesses. 

In countries like North America and Europe, the majority of the manufacturers have shut down their plants and some industries are working with less manpower. For example, companies like Osram, Coherent, IPG have decided to work with less manpower. Due to the COVID-19 impact, the demand for laser diodes has to curb down across different industrial sectors.
