In 2016, from the materials processing and lithography market, buy laser pointer revenues to 4.072 billion US dollars once again become the largest market segments. Communications and optical storage laser sales of 37.32 billion US dollars, in second place. Followed by research and military market $ 877 million, medical and beauty market $ 838 million, instrument and sensor market $ 608 million, and entertainment, display and print market $ 268 million.

For the global manufacturing industry, 2016 is the most volatile year. Putting aside the normal cycle of growth recession, worries about Britain's departure from Europe, China's economic problems and the political uncertainties of US political events are worries about the growth prospects of the manufacturing sector. However, industrial lasers enjoyed another year of growth in global manufacturing in 2016, thanks to double-digit sales growth in high-power fiber burning lasers for sale, a surge in excimer laser revenues, and a rise in ultrafast laser applications Significant growth.

Kilowatt-class fiber lasers for metal cutting and welding applications account for 41% of total industrial laser revenue in 2016. Overall, sales of fiber lasers increased by 12 percent in 2016, in part due to a decline in sales of CO2 lasers (-4 percent) and solid-state lasers (-1 percent). High-power direct semiconductor lasers and excimer lasers have earned the fastest annual revenue growth (54 percent) in terms of percentages, and these lasers have been in strong growth as their market base is lower, with excimer lasers Of the annealing application is also a major driving force.

The sales of fiber lasers have contributed significantly to the growth of total green laser pointer revenue. In 2016, IPG's revenue from fiber lasers is expected to be close to $ 1 billion. The company is another $ 1 billion-a-year company with total revenues of more than $ 857 million in 2016 and strong sales of its excimer laser by the end of 2016 and the successful acquisition of Rofin Corporation. The company's revenue for fiscal 2015/2016 is close to $ 2.8 billion, with laser technology alone generating more than $ 1 billion in revenue.

Automotive, aerospace, energy, electronics and communications (smart phones) materials processing applications, continue to drive strong growth in sales of industrial lasers. Micromachining applications, including all applications using power <500W lasers, account for 35% of the total market for industrial strongest laser pointer with a growth rate of 105% in the three major industrial laser application categories (micromachining, macro machining, marking) , Which includes the display applications that require excimer lasers - a coherent representation in its third quarter ending July 2, 2016, "As expected, we have received a large number of lasers from flat panel display annealing applications Orders, including a single order amount of more than 100 million US dollars. "Macro processing applications (including all need> 500W power laser processing) in industrial laser revenue to occupy the largest market share (47%), thanks to fiber lasers, Won the macro application market share of 44%. Finally, marking applications (including engraving) contributed about 18% of industrial laser revenue, maintaining steady growth of 3.9%, which is dominated by fiber lasers, accounting for 49% of total sales in the marking sector. Cutting is the most important application on two levels: one is to generate revenue, and the other is the use of high power fiber lasers. Cutting is critical for both industrialized and emerging economies, and its growth prospects are closely related to the GDP of a country. With the economic downturn in 2016, cutting the market growth rate of only 3.5%. Oddly enough, the demand for laser welding (3.4%), driven by global automotive industry and pipeline and downhole tubing welding, compensates for the slump in the cutting market. Non-metal processing applications in fiber-reinforced polymers combined with fine metal processing contributed 5% to the overall market growth. Increased material manufacturing (more specifically 30mw laser pointer metal deposition) increased strongly by 22.1% in 2016, mainly due to the recognition of the aeroengine industry and the use of medium- and high-power CO2 Lasers and fiber lasers.

The state of manufacturing is expected to be a 2016 replica in 2017 and growth in some markets (East Asia, South America and Eastern Europe) will continue to slow. Industrial laser market is expected to achieve 8.7% of revenue growth. Marking the market, with the unit price continues to decline, marking the laser's revenue will decline; in micro-processing, with the excimer laser shipments continue to increase, and the importance of non-metallic processing continues to increase , Micro-processing laser revenue will grow 38%; in macro-processing, is expected in 2017 macro processing will occupy the industrial red laser pointer market share of 47% of the total revenue, and 2016 flat, including fiber laser market will grow 8%.

Revenue from lithography lasers is also increasing. Dutch company ASML acquired the 24.9% stake ($ 1.1 billion) of Carl Zeiss Semiconductor in Germany by the end of 2016, after acquiring Cymer, the EUV and excimer light source manufacturer in 2012, Own business. "With high-performance optics, Zeiss Semiconductor offers an important subsystem for ASML's semiconductor lithography scanners, which will help companies develop next-generation devices in the early years of the next decade," ASML said. Extreme ultraviolet lithography system.
