The demand for laser diodes has witnessed significant growth in various industrial sectors across the world. For instance, the demand for laser diodes in the healthcare sector has witnessed growth. A laser diode can assist physicians to focus the beam with better precision on targeted areas, preventing any kind of damage to the surrounding area. As a result, the employment of semiconductor laser diodes is continuously expanding in spine, cardiovascular, and cataract surgeries. Besides this, laser diodes also find vast applications in hair removal, body contouring, LASIK surgery, skin resurfacing, tattoo removal, and wrinkle and pigmentation reduction.

The market has been significantly driven by the exponential rise witnessed in the healthcare sector in recent years. Moreover, the advantage of the laser diode is finding new applications in various other industries as well.

The advent of COVID-19 had an adverse impact on the global laser diode market. The immense downturn in several industries worldwide has been a significant reason for the decline in the demand for laser diodes. Additionally, the shortages in the supply of raw material, along with a significant decrease in the demand are expected to continue until the end of 2020, due to the disruption in the supply chain worldwide. According to IPC's survey of electronics businesses, around 69% of the respondents are informed by their suppliers that there will be delays in shipments due to COVID-19. Moreover, the operational activities across industries came to a standstill owing to the lockdowns in several countries which caused severe disruptions in the supply chains. These disruptions caused the shipments to be delayed and hence postponing and slowing down the overall manufacturing process of the diodes. With the world recovering from the pandemic, several industries have shown recovery signs in recent times. Similarly, the market for the laser diode is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.
