VCSELs are a type of lasers in which infrared energy is emitted from the surface cavity of semiconductor layers. Multiple devices can be packaged together to form an array and used for high-speed optical data communication over short distances. Their high reliability and low cost of fabrication have also encouraged manufacturers to develop these devices for sensing applications. In the last few years, researchers have also managed to successfully develop high-powered VCSELs for infrared illumination, pumping of lasers, and industrial heating applications. 

This research report categorizes the VCSEL market on the basis of application, end user, and geography. The market has been segmented based on application into data communication, sensing, infrared illumination, pumping, and industrial heating. The market based on end users has been segmented into data center, consumer electronics, automotive, industrial, healthcare, and other sectors. It has been segmented based on geography into North America, Europe, APAC, and RoW. 

The VCSEL market is expected to reach USD 2,105.3 Million by 2020. Data communication and sensing are the major applications, whereas infrared illumination, pumping, and industrial heating applications are expected to exhibit high growth. In 2014, the data communication application accounted for the largest share of nearly 60% of the overall VCSEL market. 

The report also details key high-growth markets, thereby underlining the growth trend in the VCSEL market. Furthermore, the report analyzes the competitive scenario, geographic trends, and opportunities in the macro- and micro-markets with respect to North America, Europe, APAC, and RoW.
