Laser Processing Market Report Scope & Overview:

Laser Processing Market Size was valued at USD 19.05 billion in 2022, and expected to reach USD 37.69 billion by 2030, and grow at a CAGR of 8.9% over the forecast period 2023-2030.

Laser processing is a technique that uses lasers in a variety of industrial and commercial applications. It is used in operations such as cutting, welding, and drilling. Engraving, material processing, marking, and other micro-processing are examples of industrial processes that use laser processing. Laser technology has several advantages over traditional techniques such as plasma, flame, and water jet. Waterjet is used for structuring and ablation, whereas plasma and flame technologies are used for cutting rather than engraving, marking, or drilling. Waterjet, on the other hand, produces a lot of noise while operating, which makes it inconvenient for material processing. Laser technology, on the other hand, can perform all of the aforementioned tasks with minimal noise pollution. Lasers are also used to engrave and mark consumer goods, electronic components, and industrial machinery. This technology is widely used in the automotive, aerospace, original equipment manufacturers (OEM), electronics, medical, packaging, and other end-use industries. All of these factors are contributing to the global expansion of the laser processing market share.

The COVID-19 pandemic has slowed growth in a number of industries, including automobiles, oil and gas, and others. It has three major effects on the global economy: it has a direct impact on production and demand, it disrupts supply chains and markets, and it has a financial impact on businesses and financial markets. The COVID-19 outbreak has posed a significant strategic threat to electronics and manufacturing companies in recent months. Raw material supply disruptions, temporary manufacturing unit shutdowns, insufficient finance, and weak consumer demand have all harmed the electronics and semiconductor manufacturing industries. All of these factors are impeding the global growth of the laser processing market.

Based on product, the laser processing market is segmented into Gas Lasers, Liquid Lasers, Solid Lasers and Others. The segment of solid lasers is expected to grow at the fastest rate. Solid lasers use less active medium material and produce both continuous and pulsed output with high efficiency. These lasers have numerous applications, including metal drilling, endoscopy in medicine, and military targeting.

Based on configuration, the laser processing market is segmented into Laser Cutting and Engraving Configuration and Laser Processing Configuration. During the forecast period, the hybrid configuration segment is expected to hold the largest share of the laser processing market. Because it provides a constant beam delivery path length and allows for a comparatively simpler beam delivery system, a hybrid system is more efficient than a moving beam system. This is because the hybrid system includes a movable table and a movable head.

Based on end user industry, the laser processing market is segmented into Microelectronics, Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Machine Tools, Micromachining, Medical & Life Sciences, Architecture and Others. The architecture end-user industry is expected to grow the fastest. Lasers aid architects in creating precise building models. These models can accurately represent the design prior to construction, allowing changes to be made to eliminate flaws or avoid the effects of climatic conditions such as rain, heavy storms, and other unavoidable natural circumstances.

Based on application, the laser processing market is segmented into Cutting, Welding, Microprocessing, Drilling, Marking & Engraving, Additive manufacturing and Others. Based on type, the laser processing market is segmented into Moving beam, Fixed beam and Hybrid beam.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
