Industry: Semiconductors & Electronics


The Global Beam Expander Market size was USD 1.29 billion in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 2.17 billion in 2021 to USD 11.36 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.78% during the forecast period in 2021-2028. Beam expanders are optical devices that are widely used to keep the beam collimated or vary the size of the focus point for a specific focusing lens in systems with a long beam path. Collimators or up-collimators are other names for them. These beam expanders are used in a variety of applications, including laser scanning, optics, and remote sensing. The beam expanders increase the beam area quadratically in response to their magnification without affecting the overall energy contained inside the beam.

Design Type Outlook

The Galilean segment accounted for the larger market share for the global beam expander market. Galilean beam expanders are used in a wide range of applications due to their simplicity of design, low cost, and small package size, as well as their ability to generate high intensity laser beams with changeable focal lengths.

The Keplerian is expected to grow at the highest growth rate over the forecast period, owing to the increased applications that require an intermediate focal point with a pinhole for spatial filtering because the intermediate focus creates high-grade reference wave fronts with a homogeneous intensity.

Device Type Outlook

The optical communication segment accounted for the larger share of the global beam expander market owing to wide variety of applications in optical communication equipment including transmitters, switches, modulators, circulators, isolators, attenuators, optical signal processing and others.

Application Outlook

The industrial segment accounted for the larger share of the global beam expander market owing to growing usage fibre beam expander lenses and assistance to the manufacture of beam expanders fiber optic transport and access networks have been rapidly expanded on a huge scale in the telecommunications industry.

Regional Outlook

Asia Pacific accounted for the highest share in the global beam expander market in 2020. The market in this region is being driven by growing telecom operations and penetration in the region in order to serve the region's enormous population. The market is growing due to the growing need for beam expander devices to improve the efficiency of laser processing systems. The use of beam expanders in a variety of devices, such as optical communication devices, laser delivery systems and processing systems, measuring and testing devices, light detection and ranging devices, remote sensing devices, and others, will help the market grow.
