The QCL market for Distributed feedback fabrication technology to hold the largest market size during the forecast period

The market for distributed feedback fabrication technology is expected to hold the largest market size during the forecast period. Distributed feedback (DFB) QCLs are the most widely used QCLs. These are single-mode QCLs and can be operated in both continuous wave mode and pulsed mode. In this type, the single-mode operation can be achieved even at higher operating currents. They are deployed in gas sensing devices in the industrial sector.

The Industrial End Use is expected to hold the largest share of the quantum cascade laser market in 2019

The industrial end-user is expected to hold the largest quantum cascade laser market share in 2019. The most important applications of QCLs are gas sensing and measurement. It is essential to detect various gases and measure their concentration in industrial processes to ensure the safety of the facility, equipment, and personnel. Recent advancements in QCLs make them a preferable non-cryogenic source for real-time spectroscopic monitoring. In addition, ideal optical power and high beam quality make them preferred for long open-path monitoring systems.

North America to dominate the quantum cascade laser market in 2019

North America would dominate the QCL market in 2019. The increasing research and development (R&D) in the field of quantum cascade lasers in terms of new and improved technologies and the growing need for improved lifestyle are the two crucial factors driving the North American market. The growing R&D at both academic and industrial levels is broadening the application areas of quantum cascade lasers in different industries such as healthcare, telecommunication, and military & defense, especially in North America.
