"Laser" stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.
Most of the mainstream laser categories were developed 5 decades ago but the
commercialization started with CO2 lasers being used in most of the industrial
applications. The new lasers like femtosecond and disc lasers operate on the
conventional principles, but compete with previous forms of lasers in output
power and efficiency. In spite of being very technical in terms of
installation and usage, lasers continue to be part of cutting edge high end
devices across verticals.
The report provides an exhaustive analysis of the markets for all the types of
lasers, such as fiber lasers, CO2 lasers, solid-state lasers, diode lasers,
dye lasers and excimer lasers. It includes detailed analysis of application
segments and geographical split across the globe. The report's strategic
section sketches the competitive scenario in the laser market. The prominent
players in different segments of the laser technology market were recognized
through secondary research and their market revenue was determined through
primary and secondary research. The size of the overall market was derived by
forecasting techniques based on the top-down and bottom-up approach, the study
of the application areas, and the trend for various geographical regions.
Scope of the report
This research report categorizes the global laser market on the basis of them
being used in different products and exhaustive applications which includes
industrial and consumer applications, and geographical analysis; forecasting
revenue, market modeling and evaluating trends in the market.
On the basis of product type
The laser type market is segmented into five categories namely: CO2 lasers,
fiber lasers, solid-state lasers, diode lasers, dye lasers and excimer lasers.
The disc laser offers some unique properties which are particularly
interesting for certain c-Si (Crime scene investigation) applications. As
compared to a rod, a disc laser offers significantly higher beam quality, i.e.
much higher average power of best beam quality.
Compared to bulk lasers, fiber lasers feature higher wall-plug efficiency,
rugged and compact design and nearly maintenance-free operation. Fiber lasers
are appropriate for generating high average powers with good beam quality. On
the other hand, due to nonlinearities there is a lower potential for high
pulse energies and peak powers.
On the basis of application
The application market is segmented into industrial applications, medical
applications, military and commercial applications. The industrial
applications are further classified into marking & engraving, cutting &
welding, semiconductor & micro processing and automotive industry. The other
applications include instrumentation & sensors, pumps, medical, excimer
lithography, science and defence, communications and consumer electronics.The
market trends and future projections for these applications are discussed
comprehensively. Communication and Industrial applications like material
processing give the maximum contribution to the laser industry. Among these,
cutting & welding form a base for the majority of the laser applications.
On the basis of geography
Key firms like Coherent (U.S.), IPG Photonics (U.S.), Newport (France),
Rofin-Sinar (U.K.), and TRUMPF (U.S.) contribute to the industrial laser
revenues. Each section will provide market data, market drivers, trends and
opportunities, key players, and competitive outlook. It will also provide
market tables for covering the sub-segments and micro-markets. In addition,
the report provides 17 company profiles covering all the sub-segments.
