Investment summary

BluGlass has pivoted its innovative compound semiconductor manufacturing technology onto the development of high performance laser diodes which it intends to start shipping at scale over the coming year. Entering the laser diode market represents a route for BluGlass to grow revenues much more rapidly. Based on industry sources, management estimates that the global laser diode market will grow from A$369m in CY21 to A$849m in CY26, driven by demand for lasers in industrial, display, biotech, scientific and lighting markets. Management’s goal is to capture 8% of the laser diode market by calendar year 2026, potentially generating almost A$75m revenues annually.

Industry outlook

In August BluGlass successfully demonstrated the world’s first working tunnel junction laser diodes manufactured using its proprietary RPCVD technology. The uncoated, unpackaged prototype devices have demonstrated good lasing behaviour. This milestone helps confirm the potential of the RPCVD laser diode designs for higher power, more efficient, high value, gallium nitride laser diodes for use in commercial applications such as 3D printing and industrial welding.
