The Global Collimating Lens Market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 5.5% from 2021-2028. The report also forecasts the market size for various segments such as type (glass, plastic), application (automobile, medical, LiDAR light and display measurement), and region (North America, Latin America, Europe Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa).
A collimating lens is a type of converging lens that brings parallel light rays together. Collimated lenses are used in photography, radar systems, and lasers to produce coherent electromagnetic waves over large distances.
On the basis of Types, the market is segmented into glass, plastic, and others.
A glass collimating lens is a type of optical element used to create parallel beams that are highly focused. Collimated light can be created by passing it through an appropriate convex or concave optics, such as the magnifying lenses found in microscopes and telescopes. Glass collimating lenses typically have a symmetrical airy pattern at their center called the center spot.
A glass collimating lens is typically convex and can be found in a variety of shapes, such as spherical or plano-convex lenses. These are often used for laser beams to create parallel beams that have been highly focused through appropriate concave optics. This type of collimated light has many applications like in various types of microscopes and telescopes. Glass collimating lenses typically have a symmetrical airy pattern at their center called the center spot, from which diverging light rays are emitted in all directions. These can be found in many shapes, such as spherical or plano-convex lenses.
A plastic collimating lens is a type of optical element that can be used in many fields such as biological, medical, and also for special applications. These lenses are made by injection molding or extrusion depending on the required shape complexity. They have good light transmission properties at a low cost and they do not require high-tech equipment to produce them.
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into automotive, medical, LiDAR, light and display measurement, spectroscopy, interferometry, and other segments.
The use of a collimating lens in automotive is to provide the required beam pattern for laser or LED optics. The performance parameters like uniformity and divergence are critical when designing optical systems with lasers, LEDs, and other light sources such as filament lamps. Collimating lenses can be used on their own or combined with diffusers or reflectors so that there is little loss of intensity due to incorrect beam shaping. This type of lens also helps reduce speckle which increases the contrast ratio between different colors seen by an observer.
In the medical field, collimating lenses are used as a beam-shaping device in endoscopes for imaging. They are also employed in optical fibers and other devices to provide miniaturized light sources or high-intensity laser beams with better angular distribution across a surface.
The LiDAR sensor is a key component in the autonomous driving system. The collimating lens, which helps focus and align laser beams to capture digital information about objects on the road ahead, has been suggested as an important factor for developing reliable accuracy. However, manufacturers of such devices must meet strict safety standards particularly when it comes to eye hazard risk.
A collimating lens is used in light and display measurement to make the illuminator a parallel beam. In an optical system, it can be difficult for the observer to see sources of light that are too small or diffuse. Applying a collimating lens over some types of lamps will make them appear stronger as well as easier for observers to detect their location, size, orientation, and color. The use of these lenses also provides general illumination without shadows when inspecting objects below normal inspection height such as circuit boards on tables (when using film-type cameras).
Collimating lenses are used in spectroscopy. They focus light onto a slit or grating, which disperses the light into its constituent wavelengths for analysis by the detector. This technique is employed to measure absorption and emission spectra of atoms, molecules, crystals (e.g., semiconductors), and solids such as ice or soil ices at the surface of Mars and Venus' polar regions).
A collimating lens is used in interferometry to combine the light beams from different sources. For instance, a laser beam can be split at a half-silvered mirror into two parallel rays of light. These are then reflected by two mirrors and recombined on another half-silvered mirror giving out one single ray of coherent light. The path lengths traveled by these various beams will be identical because they were all produced with the same source (the laser). However, there is always an optical axis difference between them due to their different paths and so it does not produce an interference pattern as expected if there was no correction done for this effect. One way that has been found effective to correct this misalignment is through the use of a cylindrical lens or a plano-convex cylindrical lens.
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa.
In the 2021-2028 period, North America will remain dominant holding over 58% share owing to its high spending capacity on healthcare equipment coupled with a growing automotive sector.
Asia-Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest-growing region in terms of demand, owing to a large population and increasing healthcare expenditure.
Middle East & Africa is expected to grow due to increased spending on automotive applications such as headlights and rearview mirrors coupled with an expanding military sector that will encourage greater use for laser technology in this area.
The major factors contributing to this growth are high prevalence of ocular disorders such as myopia (short-sightedness), a proliferative form of diabetic retinopathy (PDR), age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), and cataract surgeries among others; growing demand for lasers with low power output due to new regulations introduced by FDA and other regulatory bodies around the world which encourage safer medical treatments using laser beams on patients without harming their eyesight; increasing number of surgical procedures performed annually which require precision cutting tools that use COGs for accurate alignment and control; increased government funding for research, development, deployment of LiDAR technology in military applications among others.
Other growth factors of the collimating lens market are:-
- Rising demand for automotive applications such as headlights and rearview mirrors coupled with an expanding military sector that will encourage greater use for laser technology in this area.
- Increasing spending on healthcare equipment, especially due to growing awareness about health problems.
- The rising trend of using LEDs is likely to provide a boost to the global Collimating Lens Market over the next ten years. This can be attributed to their efficiency and low power consumption which make them attractive sources of lighting in many commercial/residential settings. LED lights' ability to tailor light outputs also makes them well suited for different usages such as video screens or eye protection, etc., thereby driving up their users globally.
