Analyst Review

The global VCSEL market is expected to witness high growth owing to surge in demand of VCSEL in data communication, and rise in usage of VCSELs in infrared illumination owing to technological advancements. However, high cost and limitations in data range of VCSELs which impedes the market growth.

A vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) is a specialized laser diode that emits a high-power optical beam vertically from its top surface. VCSEL is constructed in a way that emits energy at 850 nm to 1300 nm with transmission rate of 2.2 Gbps to 150 Gbps. At present, VSCEL are available in 2 types-single mode and multimode VSCELs. A single-mode VCSEL produces a light beam of high spectral purity, lower divergence, and high power of coherence than a multimode VCSEL.

Multimode VCSEL in the VCSEL market has higher potential for growth in the global market due to increased applications in comparison to single mode VCSEL. Key market players have adopted efficient techniques to develop innovative offerings.

Finisar Corporation, Avago Technologies, JDS Uniphase Corporation, Royal Philips Electronics N.V., II-VI Incorporated, IQE PLC, Vertilas GmbH, Princeton Optronics, Vixar Inc., and Ultra Communications Inc. are key market players that occupy a significant revenue share in the VCSEL market.
