Table of Contents

In 2014, global laser market picked up, with laser system sales hitting USD9.2 billion, a year-on-year growth rate of 6%. Over the next couple years, optical storage, military, and scientific research markets are expected to remain weak, but emerging application markets like 3D printing and sapphire cutting will fuel market growth. It is expected that global laser market will expand at an AAGR of about 8% during 2015-2018.

As a global processing and manufacturing center, China sees continued expansion in laser processing equipment installation. By the end of 2014, China’s laser cutting complete equipment ownership approximated 20,000 units (sets), of which over 3,000 were high-power ones which are used mainly in automobile, shipping, and aerospace fields, and around 10,000 units (sets) were small and medium-power ones, finding applicatio in sectors such as textile & clothing, advertisement, handicraft and electronics.

In terms of market structure, laser marking machine, laser cutting machine, and laser welding machine are major three product categories among all laser processing equipment in China, together accounting for 80% of total market size. With evolution of new technologies and emergence of new applications, new laser processing equipment markets, such as 3D printing, laser scribing machine, laser exposure machine, and sapphire cutting machine, will usher in rapid growth.

By regional pattern, four laser industry bases (Central China, Bohai Rim, Yangtze River Delta, and Pearl River Delta) have basically taken shape in China. In 2014, the four bases generated total output value of RMB31.5 billion, occupying 94% of the entire industry’s output value.
