By Product, the Power diodes segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

The global market for discrete diodes, particularly laser diodes, has experienced significant growth due to the increasing demand for advanced power and small signal diodes in the communication industry. This trend is driven by substantial investments made by major players, such as Samsung Electronics, which has announced a USD230 billion investment plan in South Korea's chipmaking base through 2042. Discrete diodes, including laser diodes, are preferred for communication applications due to their ease of modulation, enabling high-speed data transmissions through the modulation of the drive current passing through the laser diodes.

By End-user, Communications  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

In the discrete diode market, power diodes hold a significant market share due to their extensive applications in various industries. These diodes, primarily used for voltage clamping, function as rectifier diodes, voltage multipliers, and freewheeling diodes. Power diodes, known for their ability to handle high power, predominantly operate at lower frequencies. Three types of power diodes exist: Schottky diodes, fast recovery diodes, and general-purpose diodes. General-purpose power diodes cater to low-frequency applications up to 1 kHz and low-speed requirements up to 1 kHz. Fast recovery diodes, on the other hand, excel in high-speed switching applications, offering reverse recovery times as short as less than 5us. The high adoption of power diodes, particularly in power electronics, automotive, and industrial sectors, drives the growth of the power diode segment in the global discrete diode market.
