“Laser” stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. In the early technical literature, especially at Bell Telephone Laboratories, the laser was called an optical maser; this term is now obsolete. A laser which produces light by itself is technically an optical oscillator rather than an optical amplifier as suggested by the acronym. It has been humorously noted that the acronym LOSER, for "light oscillation by stimulated emission of radiation", would have been more correct. With the widespread use of the original acronym as a common noun, actual optical amplifiers have come to be referred to as "laser amplifiers", notwithstanding the apparent redundancy in that designation.

In recent technology developments, chipless RFID tags have been developed and offered on the affordability level of customers, which will result in high growth. It is coupled with a simplified manufacturing technology and decrease in the manufacturing time. Moreover chipless RFID tags are compatible with the existing infrastructure, which saves the additional cost of installing new system. Manufacturers have reduced the price of chipless RFID tags. This trend is causing for a high growth of the chipless RFID market.
The principle of BIPV is that the PV panels or modules are incorporated into the envelope of a building/façade/roof and they generate electricity at that specific location. This, in turn, maximizes the energy efficiency by eliminating the transmission losses that generally occur when electricity is supplied through the national grid.
Urbanization, increasing infrastructure, and government initiatives are the factors resulting into increase in modern lighting products. Incandescent lighting turns out to be a very costly and poor medium of lighting source. This stirs the push to LED lighting. COB LED technology has emerged due to its features such as low power consumption, cost effective lighting, and high intensity output. COB LED market contributes around 7 to 8% to the overall market for LED and is expected to reach around 20% in the near future.
