Analysis of global fiber laser development in 2018
Global fiber laser market over 2 billion US dollars
Compared with other lasers, fiber laser has the advantages of simple structure, high conversion efficiency, good beam quality, low maintenance cost and good heat dissipation. Fiber laser has become the main source of traditional industrial manufacturing, such as metal cutting, welding and marking, and is widely used in medical cosmetology, aerospace and military. Application and other fields. Since 2013, the size of the global fiber laser market has increased year by year. From 841 million US dollars in 2013 to $2 billion 39 million in 2017, the annual average growth rate is 24.78%, and the growth rate is rapid.
At the same time, the market share of the global fiber laser in industrial lasers has been rising year by year, from 33.8% in 2013 to 47.3% in 2017, which has become the largest industrial laser in the market.
The Asia Pacific region is the largest market for global fiber lasers.
The Asia Pacific region is the world's most important fiber laser market. Because the Asia Pacific region has gathered the important automotive industry, traditional manufacturing and semiconductor industry in the world, the demand for fiber laser is very strong. In 2017, the Asia Pacific region fiber laser market accounted for 42.9% of the global market share. Europe is the second largest fiber laser market in the world. In 2017, the scale of optical fiber laser market in Europe accounted for 33.2% of the world's market share. In addition, North America accounts for 22.6% of the market share.
In view of the rapid development of industrial sectors in the Asia Pacific region and the advantages of low cost and high output power of fiber lasers, the market space of fiber lasers used in material processing is huge. The Asia Pacific region is expected to become an important driving force for the growth of the global fiber laser market.
Macro material processing is the main application market of fiber lasers.
The applications of fiber lasers can be divided into three categories: marking, micro material processing, and macro material processing. Among them, micro material processing includes all laser applications with output power less than 1000W in addition to marking, and macro material processing includes all laser applications with output power greater than or equal to 1000W, mainly metal cutting and welding. In recent years, the scale of the global fiber laser market has been increasing, and the market size of each subdivision application has also kept increasing. Among them, the market of fiber laser used for macro material processing increased rapidly, from 512 million US dollars in 2013 to US $1 billion 268 million in 2017.
From the perspective of the application structure of global fiber lasers, macro material processing is the main application market of fiber lasers. In 2017, the market share of the global fiber laser for macro material processing reached 62.2%, and the market share of the global fiber laser used for micro material processing was 21.8%, and the global fiber laser used less market share for the marking, which was 16%.
