Metals was the largest product segment of the laser material market and accounted for over 45% of the demand share in 2014. Metal is chiefly consumed in the production of electric components of laser, laser diodes, semiconductor, and casing of laser, accounting for the largest share of the laser material market in 2014. The others segment which includes graphite, alumina, and other advanced materials was the second-largest product segment of the laser material market in 2014. In a laser device, glass is principally consumed in the manufacture of circuit boards as glass fibers enhance its physical properties. Furthermore, glass is largely required in the production of optics and numerous non-semiconductor parts. Plastics are primarily consumed in the production of circuit boards, semiconductor parts, optics of laser, and the case during the manufacture of components or structural parts of a laser. Ceramics are mostly consumed in semiconductor parts, non-semiconductor parts, and in the manufacture of circuit boards.

Communication was the largest application segment of the laser material market and accounted for more than 30% of the global laser material market share in 2014. Laser technology plays a vital role in communication application. Rising demand for Internet services, e-commerce, digitalization of information, and economic cycles are primarily boosting growth of laser devices. This, is turn, is fueling growth of the communication segment of the laser material market. Material processing was the second-largest application segment of the laser material market in 2014. In the material processing application, the laser technology is broadly used in material (metal, graphite, diamond, etc.) cutting, designing of machine parts, and advanced material processing technology.

In terms of demand, Asia Pacific constituted the largest share of the laser material market with more than one-third share in 2014. Presence of major metal mines, ease of availability of mining labors due to large population, growing production capacity of plastics & glass along with strong domestic consumption, and regional growth are few major factors propelling the laser material market in Asia Pacific.
