XT Laser – Plate and Tube Integrated Laser Cutting Machine
Laser equipment can be divided into three categories: laser marking machines, laser welding machines, and laser cutting machines. Laser cutting machines include YAG laser cutting machines and fiber laser cutting machines. According to data, in China’s laser industry, laser processing equipment accounts for the majority of the market, with 63.5% of laser processing equipment referring to the field of re industry. Therefore, it can be known that the main market for laser equipment in China is still the most widely used in industry.
Analysis of the development status and market prospects of the laser equipment industry in 2020.
With the in-depth implementation of the “Made in China 2025” action plan and the “the Belt and Road” strategy, the manufacturing industry has an increasing demand for automated and intelligent production models. Laser technology is a cutting-edge technology in modern high-end manufacturing industry, which will play an important role in the process of industrial transformation and upgrading. The application fields of laser processing have also expanded from light industries such as food, textiles, and electronics to heavy industries such as automobiles, ships, aerospace, aviation, and high-speed rail. In addition, the Chinese laser market has also extended to emerging fields such as communication, display, medical treatment, orthopedics, additive manufacturing, and data sensors. Thanks to the strong support of national policies, the scale of China’s laser market has steadily increased.
The laser equipment industry has a large scale and extensive application, and has formed a complete and mature industrial chain distribution. From the distribution of the laser industry chain, it can be seen that the laser industry chain mainly includes the upstream material and component industries, mainly including the manufacturing of optical, mechanical, electrical control, and pneumatic components of laser processing equipment, as well as the development of related control platforms and software systems. Midstream laser processing equipment manufacturing industry. Downstream application industries mainly include laser processing applications in industries such as automotive, steel, shipbuilding, aerospace, consumer electronics, high-end materials, semiconductor processing, mechanical manufacturing, medical beauty, and electronic industry.
The laser market in China is mainly divided into laser processing equipment, optical communication devices and equipment, laser measurement equipment, lasers, laser medical equipment, laser components, etc., of which laser processing equipment accounts for the majority of the market. Laser processing applications have also expanded from light industries such as food, textiles, and electronics to heavy industries such as automobiles, ships, aerospace, aviation, and high-speed rail. In addition, the Chinese laser market has also extended to emerging fields such as communication, display, medical treatment, orthopedics, additive manufacturing, and data sensors. Benefiting from the strong support of national policies, a number of outstanding national enterprises have emerged, including Xintian Laser, Huagong Technology, Fujin Technology, Ruike Laser, and Meisi Laser, helping the steady growth of China’s laser market.
Currently, China has initially formed four major laser industry clusters in the Pearl River Delta, Yangtze River Delta, Bohai Rim, and Central China. The focus of each industrial cluster is different: the Pearl River Delta region focuses on the production of small and medium-sized lasers; The Yangtze River Delta region focuses on the assembly of high-power laser welding and cutting equipment; The Bohai Rim region focuses on high-power laser cladding and all solid-state lasers; This area can cover the production of most domestic lasers and laser equipment. The domestic laser industry has basically formed an industrial chain of laser crystals, key components, accessories, lasers, laser systems, application development, and public service platforms. Since 2010, thanks to the continuous expansion of the application market, China’s laser industry has gradually entered a period of rapid development. After the slowdown in growth in 2015, the entire market lagged behind and entered the fast lane again. According to data, in 2018, China’s laser equipment sales revenue reached 60.5 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase. From 2011 to 2018, the compound annual growth rate of laser equipment market sales reached. According to the statistics of the Laser Processing Committee, in 2018, the output value of China’s domestic laser processing industry exceeded 50 billion yuan (the previous year’s data was 43 billion yuan, excluding import data), with a year-on-year growth of about 16%.
In the future, comprehensive process and technological innovation is the way out for high-power cutting and welding. Leading new applications with new light sources, promoting the laser application market with intelligent manufacturing, and forming a large-scale application market through mass production of laser intelligent high-end equipment remain the core goals of China’s laser industry.
Analyze the market structure of laser equipment in China.
The laser equipment industry has a large scale and extensive application, and has formed a complete and mature industrial chain distribution. According to relevant data, lasers used in the industrial and information fields account for up to 95% of the Chinese laser equipment market, which is consistent with the structure of the global laser market. With the continuous development of industry and information technology in China, there is still considerable room for growth in the application of laser equipment in the future.
