VCSELs are basically the latest type of semiconductor that is similar to LED which has gained momentum owing to its excellent properties such as superior efficiency, higher wavelength and high-performance computing which enables their application in sensing, infrared illumination, pumping, and industrial heating. The VCSEL uses the less electrical current to produce a given coherent energy output. Also, VCSELs help in reducing the operating costs as well as power consumption.

According to the Value Market Research, the Global VCSEL Market was valued at USD 1,120.4 MN in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 4,340.3 MN by 2024, with a CAGR of 21.3%. In terms of volume, the market was estimated at XX.X Million Units and is expected to reach XX.X Million Units with a CAGR of X.X%.
Multimode to reach XX.X USD MN by 2024. Multimode VCSEL chips are designed for high-speed data communications. Growing applications of multi-mode VCSEL in a wide range of industries including consumer application and AOC & transceivers is driving the market growth. Robust demand for OEM applications such as sensing, motion control, medical devices, printing, and barcode scanners is also playing as the key factor that accelerating the demand for multi-mode VCSEL.
The utmost demand for VCSELs is from the optical data communication sector on account of its capacity to modulate at high frequencies in a wide range of data communication applications. Owing to its ability to transmit data over a short range with high data transfer rates and reliability, making them ideal for data centers is another major factor that drives the market demand. Also, the rising number of new data centers for data analytics coupled with cloud computing solutions is expected to generate increased demand VCSEL for data communication applications. Therefore, data communication is considered to be the largest application in 2017.
The data center is dominating segment in 2017 owing to rise in high data transfer rates leading to the greater use of VCSELs as most of the VCSELs operate nearly 800 nm. VCSELs have been widely adopted in the data communications industry owing to its better efficiency, longer wavelength emission, and power-saving and low-cost solution for the link. Also, the market of VCSEL is growing on the ground of rising demand for VCSELs with low-energy optical storage and fast switching in servers and high-capacity data centers as it offers high-performance computing.
