New Development Scope of Fiber laser Technology Machine in Future
From the market growth, according to the type of laser, the next five years, the market is the fastest growing direct semiconductor laser is mainly of high power semiconductor laser kilowatt level; the second fastest growing is the quantum cascade lasers, the lasers have obvious advantages, is widely used, especially play an important role in counter-terrorism, security and other applications in the future, the world of quantum cascade lasers will have a huge demand. Fiber lasers will maintain a steady growth rate.
From the application of laser market, occupy about half of the country to remove the optical communication market, the macro material processing is the largest market, followed by the micro processing, with the future of manufacturing industry continued to develop high-end, micro processing market will have great development space.
In the laser micro processing market, the global laser micro processing market in 2016 is about 1 billion 100 million US dollars, and it is expected to grow to 1 billion 300 million US dollars in 2017. At present, the biggest application market is the semiconductor /PC board / display processing market, and the main service companies in this field are related companies. The following are the precision metal processing market, the nonmetal processing market and the additive manufacturing market.
The lasers used in laser micromachining are mainly excimer lasers, fiber lasers, CO2 lasers and solid-state lasers, among which fiber lasers and excimer lasers are the most widely used. It is worth mentioning that, CO2 laser did not die out from the market, in fact, recently in non-metallic processing also ushered in many new opportunities.
Another is the market of laser processing kilowatt high power laser processing market in 2016, the market size of about US $1 billion 500 million, the next five years will be relatively stable growth.
In the kilowatt class applications, the current metal cutting applications are still large head, accounting for about 70% of the share, and the other two types of applications are metal welding and additive manufacturing.
Although insiders predict metal welding Market in the future is expected to exceed the cutting market, but in the next five years, from the sales point of view, the fastest growing or metal cutting applications, is expected to 2022, in the metal cutting applications will reap $700 million KW fiber laser. At present, with the development of fiber laser, laser cutting machine has made a standard product.
Take a look at the global laser marking market. This is a relatively mature and stable market, the total income is about 600 million U.S. dollars, the future market growth is also relatively slow. At present, the laser used for marking is mainly fiber lasers (about half of the market) and CO2 lasers (about 1/3 market), and the application of semiconductor lasers is also increasing.
