Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 3.87 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 17.60% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use sectors. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

A vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) is a semiconductor-based laser diode that emits highly efficient optical beams perpendicular to the surface of the substrate. It is used as a transmitter in optical fiber communications as it can be modulated with high frequencies. As a VCSEL with a laser mouse has high tracking precision and low electricity consumption, it is finding applications in battery-powered devices across the globe. Besides this, due to its high output power, it is gaining traction in miniature optical clocks and compact global positioning system (GPS) devices.

VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser) Market Trends:
VCSELs provide a compact and cost-efficient optical source for a wide range of applications as compared to edge-emitting lasers (EELs) and light-emitting diodes (LEDs). This, in confluence with the escalating demand for miniature electronic devices, represents one of the key factors driving the market growth. Moreover, the increasing utilization of biometric systems in various organizations due to the growing instances of security breaches is catalyzing the adoption of VCSELs for mapping the facial features of an individual and storing the data as a faceprint. This can also be accredited to the integration of high-quality cameras in mobile devices that make facial recognition a viable option for authentication and identification. Apart from this, VCSELs can be incorporated in light detection and ranging (LIDAR) technology, which is a crucial component in the advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Furthermore, the growing trend of self-driving cars is contributing to the use of VCSELs to provide data for fully autonomous vehicles without compromising their safety. Additionally, innovations in VCSEL technology are augmenting the overall product sales for sensing, imaging, and scanning applications in multiple fields, including machine vision, scientific and medical.
