Mid-Infrared Lasers: Technologies, Applications and Global Markets

This report represents an in-depth analysis of the global mid-infrared market by source type, application, end users and region. This report further discusses various stakeholders involved in the distribution channels: manufacturers and suppliers. The report also discusses strategies adopted by major players in the global mid-infrared laser market. A patent analysis provides technological trends in the global market across years as well as geographies, namely, the U.S., Europe and Japan. Based on wavelength, mid-infrared is segmented into fixed, tunable and broadband.
 
The mid-infrared laser market is segmented based on type such as nonlinear sources (parametric amplification subsegment), free electron lasers, solid-state lasers (doped insulator laser subsegment), semiconductor lasers and CO2 lasers. Semiconductor lasers are further sub-segmented as QCLs (Fabry-Perot laser subsegment), interband cascade laser, optically pumped semiconductor lasers, lead salt diode lasers and GaSB-based diode lasers.
 
On the basis of application, the mid-infrared laser market is segmented into noninvasive medical diagnostics, free space communication, laser scalpel, spectroscopy and remote sensing. The market is also segmented by end-user industry in which mid-IR is employed to perform certain tasks, namely, research, defense, chemical, medicine and healthcare. The market is segmented by region into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the rest of the world (ROW).
