The tunable laser market size was worth US$ XX billion in 2020 and is estimated to reach US$ XX billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period (2021-2028).
A tunable laser allows altering of wavelength in a controlled manner. It is used for device characterization (photonic integrated circuits), optical fiber communications with wavelength multiplexing and serves as a spare in the case of the fixed-wavelength lasers for the particular channels fails. Their tunable lasers exist in either gas, liquid or solid-state. Tunable lasers find applications in photochemistry, spectroscopy, atomic vapor laser isotope separation and optical communications.
Tunable lasers are produced using various laser structures including distributed feedback, distributed Bragg reflector, sampled-grating DBR, vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser and external-cavity lasers.
The global tunable laser market growth is driven by high demand from the nanotechnology sector, technological advancements in the market, expanding demand from the spectroscopy sector and enlarging optical networks.
High demand from the nanotechnology sector
The tunable laser market is expected to drive with high demand from the nanotechnology sector. Tunable laser is served across various fields to fulfill nanotechnology applications including materials science, life science and electronics. It can be tuned over a few hundred nanometers with a wide range of spectral resolutions depending on the wavelength range. It is also used for basic absorption and photoluminescence study, solar cells characterisation in a light beam induced current, characterisation of gold nanoparticles and single-walled carbon nanotube thermopile. Researchers use the tiny high-power narrow-beam laser to operate in the terahertz frequencies with potential imaging and scanning applications. New products provide a wide spectral range from UV to NIR with a bandwidth down to 0.4nm with a selection of highly precise wavelengths.
Due to the numerous advantages, it is adopted by the leading market players globally. For Instance, In 2020, Metamaterial Inc., a developer of functional materials and nanocomposites, has installed the world's first C-WAVE GTR/NIR (green-to-red/near-infrared) tunable laser. The new system covers a significant gap in the green region, replacing narrow bandwidth lasers. In 2018, Researchers from Finland created a tunable and stable nanoparticle-array laser from a stepping stone to affordable and efficient sensing and switching.
Lack of technological knowledge associated with tunable laser
The tunable laser market is impacted by technical knowledge with ongoing modifications in a tunable laser are therefore acting as a major restraint for the growth of the tunable laser market. Tunable lasers are difficult to control the optical path length between the two reflectors at each end of the cavity, resulting in wavelength instability and broad line width.
Moreover, the tunable laser market may also be impacted by its high costs, reliability issues in some cases and supply guarantees. However with growing market demand, the companies are now working to deliver high-performance tunable lasers at the cost of fixed wavelength lasers.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Due to the pandemic, stakeholders across the tunable laser industry have seen a notable impact as all the production work, factories and other activities were closed. The production was hindered by a shortage of raw materials, halts and supply chain disruption globally. After the pandemic, there are still various restrictions imposed by the governments, such as working with half the workforce and fewer operating hours hindering the production cycle of the market. The losses incorporated with the cancellation of ongoing market-related projects and reduced demand from the end-user industries.
On the other hand, tunable lasers have observed significant opportunities in the healthcare sector due to the recent pandemic, owing to developments in healthcare applications with government investments, resulting in market demand from the healthcare sector in the forecast period.
By type, the tunable laser market is broadly classified into solid-state lasers, dye state lasers, free-electron lasers and others.
The solid-state is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2021-2028)
The solid-state tunable laser is expected to hold the largest market for tunable laser market and is expected to continue its dominance in the forecast period due to its vast application areas. A few solid-state lasers, such as titanium-sapphire lasers, Cr: ZnSe and Cr: ZnS lasers offer tuning over hundreds of nanometers in the near and mid-infrared spectral region. Nonplanar ring oscillators allow continuous tuning within the free spectral range of several gigahertz.
The market has emerged with recent launches and developments incorporated from the solid-state tunable lasers such as In 2020, Researchers have developed a new ultrafast high-power yellow laser. The tunable laser offers excellent beam quality and helps fulfill the need for a useful yellow light source emitting ultrafast pulses of light. The solid-state Cr2+:ZnS laser emits in the mid-infrared range along with a two-stage frequency-doubling process. In 2019, RPMC Lasers formed a Partnership with Sheaumann Laser RPMC Lasers Inc, the leading solid-state lasers distributor in North America, to distribute products.
North America region holds the largest market for the global tunable laser globally
North America region holds the largest market share for the tunable laser market globally and is expected to continue its dominance in the forecast period with expanding applications in numerous industries, new product launches, partnerships and market expansions. For Instance, in 2021, Ekspla and Option Laser International announced a partnership agreement for selling and distributing all Ekspla products.
In 2021, Light Conversion launched an update for its Carbide Series along with 80 W and 40 W versions and tunable parameters including repetition rate (single pulse to 2 MHz), pulse duration (250 fs - 20 ps), pulse energy (up to 0.8 mJ), and average power (up to 80 W).
In 2019, Oxford University installed a tunable laser system by Amplitude Laser Inc. for research in the field of neuroscience. The applications of the tunable laser systems will be used for specific tasks such as deep brain imaging using 3-photon microscopy and massive parallel 2-photon optogenetic photostimulation of neurons.
