NASHUA, NH - Good news concerning activity in the global industrial laser market comes from financial reports of those pubic companies that are among the leaders in supplying lasers and systems for manufacturing applications, according to David Belforte, publisher and editor-in-chief of Industrial Laser Solutions. Sales activity in all of the major producing and using nations has exceeded 2004 forecasts and expectations are that growth for 2005 could be about 2% higher than anticipated.

Belforte will outline what is driving sales in this global market during his talk at the annual Laser and Photonics Marketplace Seminar, to be held January 23, 2006, at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, CA, in conjunction with Photonics West.

In addition to detailed analyses of sales and technology trends in the semiconductor, industrial, and medical markets and a keynote address on value-added manufacturing in the laser industry by Phillip Meredith of JDS Uniphase, the seminar will also debut the first Fiber Laser Markets Forum. The forum will bring together industry experts to discuss the growing acceptance of high-power fiber lasers for industrial applications and emerging opportunities for lower-power fiber lasers in medicine and the graphic arts.
