Gas, solid-state, and fiber lasers are the products in the laser processing market. Gas lasers comprise carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, copper, argon-ion, nitrogen, and helium-neon lasers. Solid-state lasers are further segmented into small diode-pumped Nd (non-diode), Q-switched Nd, large lasers in side-pumped & end-pumped systems, and single-frequency operations. Solid-state had 20% share in 2014. Rofin-Sinar, a firm, offers lasers in the range of 3 – 1, 000 watts for scribing, welding, drilling, & cutting.
Laser processing is employed for material processing, micro processing, and marking & engraving. Material processing occupied over 70% of the market in 2014. Ultra-short lasers are utilized for marking & engraving, welding, cutting, and drilling. Water jet cutting uses smooth surface and narrow cuts to improve process efficiency.
Applications of the laser processing market comprise automotives, electronics & microelectronics, aerospace, medical treatment devices, packaging, and OEMs (original equipment manufacturers). Automotives commanded 15% demand in 2014. Lasers are employed in this sector to cut lightweight and ultra-high-strength steel (UHSS) to make automobiles more secure.
Medical treatment devices will be a lucrative application, growing at 9% CAGR from 2014 to 2020. Lasers are employed in this sector to cut miniaturized parts like pacemakers & other implantable devices. Demand from oil & gas and electronics industries is also anticipated to drive the laser processing market.
Asia Pacific dominated the market in 2014 and accounted for 40% of the overall revenues. This could be attributed to electronics and automotive companies in the region. It was followed by North America. North America commanded 20% share in 2014. Prominent companies of the worldwide laser processing market include LaserStar Technologies Corporation, Newport Corporation, Rofin-Sinar Technologies, Coherent Inc., and IPG Photonics Corporation.
