Global Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser (VCSEL) Market Highlights over 2022 – 2031

The global vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of ~18% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. Vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser or VCSEL is a semiconductor-based laser diode, which emits optical beam vertically from its top surface. It is a vital component for 3D sensor systems, including 3D facial identification systems, light detection and ranging (LiDAR), world-facing cameras on mobile handsets, and sensing for autonomous driving vehicles. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing applications of VCSEL. Moreover, the growing adoption of automated vehicles is estimated to primarily boost the market growth.  According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, 97.302 million vehicles were produced in the year 2017, which grew by 2.36 percent from the previous year. Further, the size of the autonomous vehicles industry reached approximately USD 23 billion in 2020, which is estimated to cross USD 35 billion by 2023.  Moreover, VCSEL is also applied in gesture recognition, augmented reality, virtual reality, robotics, metaverse, and proximity sensors, which is projected to further promote the market growth.
