Since its advent in 1957, the early adopters of laser (light amplification by simulated emission of radiation) technology were applications such as: ranging, targeting, spectroscopy, and microscopy. The purpose of these applications was either the exploration/measurement of distances or the scientific/laboratory experiments. None of the above mentioned application promoted laser technology on the commercial front such as laser processing. However, with the technological developments, lasers became compact, robust, and versatile. Such developments triggered the industrial and commercial applications such as: micro-machining, modeling, precise sculpting, shaping & sizing objects and materials, and contactless imprinting which now are collectively referred to as laser processing applications.

The revenue generated from laser processing applications is supported by five critical pillars - laboratory equipments, defense & military, compact disc read/write heads, communications, and material processing. The research study, Laser Processing Market (2013 - 2018) analyses the vital material processing segment. The analysis is complemented by qualitative as well as quantitative data, latter being further divided into sales value, sale volume, and average selling price (ASP) data sets. Each of the data set contains historical, estimated, and forecasted values. The total laser processing market is segmented according to the technology, laser processing techniques, machine configuration, vertical, and geography.

The report segments the laser processing market by various economic pockets such as: North America, Europe, APAC, and ROW. Further major countries contributing to the market are analyzed with detailed representation of value and volume data. Apart from the quantitative data, the report also includes qualitative data analysis by the use of various tools and models. Porters five force analysis, value chain analysis, price trend analysis, market dynamics, burning issues, and winning imperatives are few of the analysis models used.
