The scope of this report covers the laser technology market on the basis of laser type, application, vertical, and geography. Solid lasers are leading in the market. The growth of the market is attributed to the ability of solid lasers to prevent material wastage when in the active medium and produce both continuous and pulsed output with greater efficiency. The major solid lasers include YAG lasers, fiber lasers, thin disk lasers, semiconductor lasers, and ruby lasers. Out of these lasers, fiber lasers and semiconductor lasers are major drivers for the growth of the solid lasers market. The market for semiconductor lasers is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the small size and appearance of semiconductor lasers, which make them applicable in various areas such as communication wherein they are used as an interface in fiber optic cables.

The market for the laser processing application is expected to lead the laser technology market during the forecast period because of the high demand for this technology, especially for material processing and marking & engraving applications. The lasers that are used in these applications include solid, gas, and liquid lasers. The market for these lasers has gained momentum over the past few years due to their ability to provide higher quality, more reliable, and more precise output compared to the conventional mechanical methods. Laser technology is widely used in the semiconductor & electronics sector, especially for cutting and marking & engraving applications. In addition, this technology is used in manufacturing miniaturized semiconductor components. These factors fuel the growth of the global market for laser processing for the semiconductor & electronics sector.

Laser Technology Market

The APAC region is expected to play a key role in the laser technology market and grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. This growth can be credited to the high adoption of this technology in this region, especially in China and Japan. China and Japan have a wide scope for automotive, commercial, and medical industries. Laser technology, being widely used in equipment and systems under these industries, the overall adoption rate of laser technology in China and Japan is projected to be high. Besides this, rapid modernization in this region has accelerated the growth, especially of the semiconductor & electronics vertical which has ultimately led to the growth of the market in this region.

One of the key restraining factors in the laser technology market is high cost of laser technology-based equipment. However, it is expected that companies would achieve economy of scale during the forecast period to lower the prices. The major players in the market include Coherent, Inc. (U.S.), Trumpf Group (Germany), IPG Photonics Corp. (U.S.), ROFIN-SINAR Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), Newport Corp. (U.S.), Jenoptik AG (Germany), Lumentum Holdings, Inc. (U.S.), GSI Group, Inc. (U.S.), Han's Laser Technology Industry Group Co., Ltd. (China), and Epilog Laser (U.S.) among others. These players adopted various strategies such as new product developments, acquisitions, agreements, collaborations, and business expansion to cater to the needs of the market.
