Quantum Cascade Lasers Market by Packaging Type (C-Mount, HHL & VHL Package, TO3 Package), Operation Mode (Continuous Wave, Pulsed), Fabrication Technology (Fabry–Perot, Distributed Feedback, Tunable External Cavities), End-User - Global forecast to 2022

“Quantum cascade lasers market to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% during the forecast period”
According to the new market research report on quantum cascade lasers (QCL), this market is expected to be worth USD 374.8 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 3.9% between 2017 and 2022. The growth of the QCL market can be attributed to the growing application of QCL in gas sensing and chemical detection in industries and the increasing adoption of non-invasive diagnostic tools in the medical industry. The high cost of QCLs is the main restraining factor for the QCL market.

The market for HHL & VHL packaged QCL is expected to grow rapidly
The market for HHL & VHL packaged QCLs is expected witness the highest growth during the forecast period because of the high-power applications in the military and defense sector. HHL & VHL packaged QCLs are used in high-power applications in the military and defense sector for infrared countermeasures (IRCM).

Industrial sector held the largest market share in 2016
The industrial sector held the largest share of the QCL market among industries such as medical, telecommunication, and military and defense. Gas sensing and chemical detection is the main application of QCLs. These techniques are adopted in various industries to detect hazardous gases such as CO, CO2, and NH3.

RoW and Asia Pacific to be the fastest-growing markets
North America held the largest share of the global QCL market in 2016 due to the early adoption and high demand for QCLs in the industrial sector. APAC and RoW are the fastest-growing QCL markets because of the presence of emerging economies, such as China and India, where industrial development is taking place at a very high rate. India’s industrial production rose to 5.7% in the third quarter of 2016. Therefore, this region is also expected to continue its growth at the highest rate between 2017 and 2022.
