Laser Processing Systems Market - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2015 -2022

Laser technology offers high accuracy and speed for various industrial processes as compared to the conventional processing methods. Additionally, laser processing is a non-contact process, it delivers clean and damage free processes. This is the most prominent factor responsible for increasing penetration of laser technology across different manufacturing processes. Laser processing systems are commonly used across industry verticals such as automotive, electronics & semiconductors, machine tool manufacturing & original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), plastic processing and others. Growing demand for fast and accurate material processing across these industries is another major factor fueling the laser processing systems market growth. Additionally, rising miniaturization trend in the electronics industry is another factor boosting the demand for laser-based micro-processing. Laser technology is increasingly being used in production of integrated circuits (ICs), small size circuit boards and other micro-electronics components.

Laser technology is also useful for marking and engraving in small dimensions. Laser technology is popularly being used for marking food containers, electronic components, jewelry and others. Thus, laser technology is expected to witness strong demand for marking & engraving processes in the coming years. Moreover, many national governments are recommending laser technology for clear and permanent marking on medical and food products mandates. This is anticipated to enhance the adoption of laser technology in marking & engraving during the forecast period. Nevertheless, major restraint for the market is high initial costs of these system.
