The global quantum cascade laser market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 3.76% during the period 2017-2021.
The report, Global Quantum Cascade Laser Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is the growth of IRCM devices. An IRCM device is used to confuse an opponent's infrared guidance system so that it misses the intended target. IRCM is increasingly being adopted in military and defense systems by various aerospace and defense companies. For instance, the jet engine of a fighter aircraft (target), which emits large amounts of infrared, can be detected and tracked by a heat-seeking missile being launched to hit a fighter aircraft. An IRCM device fitted on the fighter aircraft can confuse the guidance system of the missile, and the missile moves away from the target. Flares that are automatically released by fighter jets are detected by the missile as the new target.
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is the growing use of gas sensing and chemical detection devices. QCLs are increasingly being used for gas sensing because they can detect even trace amounts of gases. The main reason for the use of QCLs for these applications is that they have a wide tuning range and a fast response time. This allows for the development of faster and more precise compact trace element detectors and gas analyzers. Similarly, in chemical detection, QCLs can easily detect trace amounts of chemicals.
