Green Laser Diode Market: Significant Impact Due To The Rising Military Needs

Green laser diode is a semiconductor device which is similarto a light emitting diode where a green light is created at the diode’sjunction. The wavelength range of the green laser diode starts from 490nm andcan go up to 575 nm. Green laser diodes are suitable for positioningapplications; they also have very good beam properties. Additionally they have awide variety of optical features like dot matrix, line matrix, multi line,line, point, and cross. Green laser diodes are also popular for their usein mobile devices, because they can be directly modulated, are smaller, and canbe highly efficient.

On the battlefield and in secure environments, green visiblelasers are used in numerous applications; these applications can includewarning, pointing, undersea communications, and threat detection. Additionally, defence and security applications are shifting from largecentralized formations to decentralized man portable units on the ground,ultracompact marine vehicles, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) where the useof green laser diodes is possible. A broad deployment of non-lethal threatdetection lasers can be done through green laser diode. Hence, the green laserdiode market can have a significant impact due to the rising military needs.Furthermore medical applications that utilize multistage green SHG lasers couldsee a shift to direct diode solutions which can affect the green laser diodemarket. Moreover, increase in the commercial availability of laser baseddisplays because of the high polarized output and single spatial modecompatibility with scanning mirror designs could impact the green laser diodemarket during the forecast period. Green laser requires special diode, a secondinfrared laser crystal, and a frequency-doubling crystal, and for the optimalfunctioning of the laser all of these are to be aligned properly. As it takes alot of work to make a green laser, their cost is significantly high; this isprojected to be one of the restraints which could hinder the growth of thegreen laser diode market during the forecast period.  Direct-emittinggreen laser diodes are expected to be important for next-generationpico-projectors that can produce big-screen images in 3D on any surface from ahandheld device.

The green laser diode market can be segmented based onapplication type and geographical regions. In terms of application type, thegreen laser diode market can be segmented into five sub sections which areheads-up display, head mounted display, pico-projectors, smart phones, andothers. Heads-up display (HUD) is a display that presents data without the needof users to look away from the mean position. A heads-up display can be used incommercial aircrafts, automobiles, and other applications.  A head mounteddisplay (HMD) is a display device which is worn on the head or as a part of ahelmet which has a display optic on each or both eyes. A head mounted displaycan be used in variety of fields like engineering, gaming, aviation, andmedicine. Furthermore, pico-projectors are small hardware devices which aredesigned to project content from smartphones, tablets, cameras, and othermemory devices onto a wall or any other flat surface. Based on geographicalsegments, the green laser diode market can be segmented into North America,South America, Middle East & Africa, Europe, and Asia Pacific.

Some of the key players in the green laser diode market areOSRAM, IPJ Photonics, Coherent, Spectra-Physics, Sharp Corporation, SPI Lasers,Sumitomo, Schneider Electric, Edmund Optics, and Newport Corporation.
