What opportunities for lasers are still expanding?

Despite the economic uncertainty, the opportunities for lasers are still expanding, from kilowatt fiber lasers and 100 Gbps transmitters to laser headlights. Strategies Unlimited has broadened its laser market report to include the entire laser market, spanning all applications and laser types. The report also continues to track fiber lasers closely, and is the 6th in the series to cover that growing technology. The report continues to be the only comprehensive report on the laser industry, tracking units, prices, and revenues for the array of applications and laser types, including fiber lasers, DPSSLs, LPSSLs, CO2 lasers, excimer lasers, and diode lasers.

The laser market saw a steep decline in 2009, particularly for products used in heavy capital equipment, such as the excimer lasers used in microlithography, which dropped over 50% in revenues. The military, instrumentation, and R&D segments fared better. The market overall turned around in mid 2009, and saw better than expected growth through 2011. 2012 saw modest growth with some segments having strong recovery. More importantly, there will be turmoil in many segments as technology and market share is readjusted all along the supply chain, from the end-user and system integrator, to the laser and component suppliers.

This market report will analyze each application and provide forecasts for units, ASP, and, revenues by laser type through the forecast period. Also included are estimates of market share for the major players. Forecast information includes detailed quantitative and qualitative analysis of the following laser applications and markets: High-power materials processing; Micro materials processing; Optical storage; Communication; Displays; Marking and engraving; Medical applications; Printing applications; Military applications; Sensors, instruments, inspection, and R&D; Market shares by region of customer & end user; Market shares by supplier.

The Worldwide Market for Lasers: Market Review and Forecast 2013report will be available by January 18, 2013.
