Since its advent in 1957, the early adopters of laser (light amplification by simulated emission of radiation) technology were applications such as; ranging, targeting, spectroscopy, and microscopy. The purpose of these applications was either the exploration/measurement of distances or the scientific/laboratory experiments. None of the above mentioned application promoted laser technology on the commercial front such as laser processing. However, with the technological developments, lasers became compact, robust, and versatile. Such developments triggered the industrial and commercial applications such as; micro-machining, modeling, precise sculpting, shaping & sizing objects and materials, and contactless imprinting which now are collectively referred to as laser processing applications.

The revenue generated from laser processing applications is supported by five critical pillars - laboratory equipments, defense & military, compact disc read/write heads, communications, and material processing. The research study, Laser Processing Market (2013 - 2018) analyses the vital material processing segment. The analysis is complemented by qualitative as well as quantitative data; latter being further divided into sales value, sale volume, and average selling price (ASP) data sets. Each of the data set contains historical, estimated, and forecasted values. The total market is segmented according to the technology, techniques, machine configuration, vertical, and geography.

Segmentation is done considering the supply side as well as the demand side market parameters. Segments such as technology, techniques, and machine configuration define the supply side market, whereas, vertical, application, and geography segments define the demand side market. The technology segmentation divides the market according to the various laser technologies such as CO2 laser, solid state lasers, fiber lasers, and excimer lasers. On the other hand, the machine configuration segment describes how the above mentioned lasers are used. Three types of configurations; moving material, flying optics, and hybrid, along with the mode of operation are covered in the report. Depending on the material type, lasers can be used in continuous mode or in a pulsed mode. The laser market data covered for various technology segments is mutually exclusive.

The major supply side segment is the technique which includes laser cutting, laser drilling, laser engraving, and laser marking. These four types of techniques have replaced the tradition mechanical processing techniques on a large scale. Depending on the application, base material type, and laser type, one can select a suitable laser processing technique. Though, techniques are different, the application market for each type wont be mutually exclusive since multiple techniques may be applied to same the product/application. The chapter also includes the level-2 segmentation of the techniques, giving descriptive data sets for various types of drilling (single pulse, percussion, trepanning, helical), cutting (fusion, flame, sublimation), and marking (masking, carbon migration, bonding).

Amongst the demand side segments, application segment is of the prime importance. The report discusses various applications with their respective impacts on the total market, cannibalization factor, year-on-year growth trend, and TAM/SAM data. Laser processing applications are also divided according to the processing techniques employed, allowing the reader to analyze each of the micro-markets individually. For example, the report differentiates between the automotive application market for laser drilling and automotive application market for laser cutting. Apart from the automotive segments, other major verticals considered for the analysis are aerospace, architecture, commercial, consumer electronics, and semiconductor & electronics.

The report also segments the market by various economic pockets such as; North America, Europe, APAC, and ROW. Further, major countries contributing to the market are analyzed with detailed representation of value and volume data. Apart from the quantitative data, the report also includes qualitative data analysis by the use of various tools and models. Porters five force analysis, value chain analysis, price trend analysis, market dynamics, burning issues, and winning imperatives are few of the analysis models used.

The material processing history dates back to the primates. Since then, various methods of processing are used to manufacture devices, equipments, and tools. Currently, the mechanical processing techniques such as cutting, drilling using bits, engraving using physical force are being extensively used. However, these techniques are now facing a huge competition from the laser material processing techniques. Lasers are used instead of mechanical tool to carry out the processes. Due their advantages such as; speed, accuracy, precision, and low cost of ownership, laser are experiencing heavy adoption in industrial applications.

Lasers have been around since 1957, but no application promoted laser technology on the commercial front. However, with the technological developments, lasers became compact, robust, and versatile. Such developments triggered the industrial and commercial applications such as; micro-machining, modeling, precise sculpting, shaping & sizing objects and materials, and contactless imprinting.

The laser processing market segmentation revolves around five major verticals; technology, process, machine configuration, industry vertical, and geography. Each of the verticals is further segmented into individual sub-segments. The industry vertical segment covers major applications such as aerospace, architecture, automobile, commercial, consumer electronics, general machine tooling, and semiconductor & electronics. Revenue grossed from all the applications mentioned above totaled to approximately $2 billion. Apart from the demand side market drivers, the report also analyzes the supply side drivers. One of the major supply side market drivers is the emergence of BSI technology.

The laser processing market analyses and includes the datasets for lasers, which is not to be confused with the laser systems. The report includes only the laser source market and not the entire laser system or laser machine market. Nevertheless, the report gives a technology-wise comparison of laser sources and laser systems. In 2012, the total laser source revenue for processing market was approximately 29% of the total laser system revenue for the same application.

The technology segmentation includes various laser types such as CO2 lasers, excimer lasers, solid state lasers, fiber lasers, and semiconductor lasers. The technology market is also divided according to the gain medium used in the laser. Three types, gas, solid, and semiconductor gain mediums are considered for the analysis. Total market is fragmented into four regions; North America, Europe, APAC, and ROW. APAC region is further broken in China, Japan, South Korea, and Rest of the APAC.

The following table gives an overview of total laser processing market. The data analysis is done from 2012 to 2018.
