In recent two years, fiber laser technology has gradually replaced more traditional laser processing methods in the market application. Its performance in the industrial laser application field is particularly strong, and it is expected to reach a market scale of 1.9 billion US dollars in 2020. What is the development status and future trend of domestic fiber laser industry?
The overall industrial layout of fiber laser in China has made great progress. Especially in the aspect of materials and components, many manufacturers gradually become mature and begin to have core technology. I believe that in the next 2-3 years, it is expected to achieve the goal of localization. Fiber laser has many technical and performance advantages, such as excellent electro-optic conversion efficiency, beam quality, integration, low maintenance requirements, its future application will be more and more extensive.
At present, the CAGR of the whole laser market is 7% per year, while the CAGR of fiber laser is more than 25%. It can be predicted that this type of laser will represent the development direction and trend of global laser technology. In addition, in terms of price, more than a decade ago, the price of a fiber laser reached 1 million yuan, but now it has dropped to yuan. However, it must be pointed out that the reduction of cost does not mean a price war, let alone a decline in the quality of products. In fact, this is also a very important part of industrialization and scale. In the future, China's low, medium and high-yield laser enterprises will have good development space.
In the future, the key development direction of advanced laser manufacturing technology is high power, high beam quality and high intelligence, and the market share of fiber laser will be mainly from the high power material processing field.
