Future Market Insights (FMI), a multinational market intelligence firm, in its recently released report on the global fiber lasers market gives a comprehensive analysis of the future demand scenario of fiber lasers along with insights into the key dynamics shaping the growth trajectory, overcast period of 2019-2028.
Given the progressive developments made by fiber lasers, in terms of spectral coverage, output power, and ultrashort pulse width, the application of fiber lasers has extended in a host of high-power and low-power end-use markets including healthcare, defense and security, and research and development. In addition, with new advancements in fiber lasers such as the quasi continuous wave (QCW) fiber lasers, the demand fiber laser is projected to grow at a promising rate of 8.8 percent, annually through 2019. Nearly 68,400 sq. meters of fiber lasers are expected to be sold in 2019, equaling a market value of approximately US$ 2.4 Billion, as per the market analysis.
According to a senior analyst at FMI, “Superior advantages of fiber lasers over conventional lasers including higher performance, low cost, ease of use, compact size, and choice of wavelengths and precise control of beam will further push the sales of fiber lasers in the coming years. In addition, the on-going demand for fiber laser is also driven by high process speeds, when working with thicker sheets of certain materials.”
Over the last decade, the overall fiber laser landscape had witnessed a range of new devices, with exception beam quality, output power, and overall efficiency and flexibility in terms of radiation arrangements and operating wavelength. Such developments can largely be attributed to fiber laser’s geometry which offers notable flexibility to the effects of heat generation in the core, thereby translating into high-brightness laser output”, the analyst explains further.
Swelling demand in the aerospace and automotive industries to address manufacturing challenges, considering the product’s superior beam quality for various material processing applications, will drive up the sales of fiber lasers. Moreover, energy efficient processes with minimized material and operational costs remains a key advantage of fiber lasers over conventional laser welding. For the aerospace industry, technical advancements in fiber lasers has opened doors for application in 3D printers for material deposition.
Fiber laser welding technology is likely to foster an environment for lower cost and higher reliability batteries—used in the new-age electric vehicles. While automotive and aerospace industries will remain the two prominent large-scale end-users of fiber laser, FMI foresees substantial demand in medical applications, including urology.
