Solid-State, Fiber, Gas and Dye Lasers: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 14, 2009
Laser technologies are increasingly providing solutions that replace as well as complement traditional production technologies. Increasing competitiveness of laser technology provides benefits such as enhanced automation of work processes, increased product quality and flexibility, as well as progressive miniaturization. Laser technology has revolutionized the way products are manufactured today by increasing production standards and efficiency. Lasers with superior beam quality play a dominant role in end-use markets such as material processing, imaging, defense, biotechnology, and aerospace. Broader and broader applications of lasers encourage producers of laser devices and systems to support ongoing research on new laser geometrics, laser materials and stimulation methods.
Global sales of solid-state, fiber, gas and dye lasers are projected to reach $3.3 Billion by 2015. Gas lasers (Carbon-di-oxide, excimer, and other) represent the largest market segment, followed by solid-state lasers (diode-pumped, laser-pumped and lamp-pumped). Evolving laser technologies such as fiber lasers, disk lasers, and ultrafast lasers are emerging as a strong contender to traditional laser technologies. Characterized by unique features such as superior beam quality, high power efficiency, broad wavelength tunability, and high average output power, fiber lasers are set to replace other conventional lasers in several applications. Fiber lasers are expected to witness the fastest growth during the period 2006-2015.
Region-wise, Europe is the largest market for solid-state, fiber, gas and dye lasers, while Asia-pacific exhibits the fastest growth. Europe is expected to continue its dominance by 2015. Industrial material processing sector is the largest end-use market for solid-state, fiber, gas and dye lasers.
