For the first time in history, the market for industrial laser systems crossed the $10 billion line in 2011. Within this market, the machines for cutting and for welding comprise the biggest market share. Besides, the systems for laser marking and 'micro' applications substantially contribute to the market. All these markets have not only recovered from the downturn in 2009 but saw an all-time high in 2011. There are a number of remarkable trends in these markets. One is the ongoing adoption of high-power solid state lasers, which replace CO2 lasers. Still, the market for CO2 laser sources grew in 2011. Another trend is the increasing maturity of the laser systems market. Copyright © 2012 THOSS Media & DE GRUYTER. Source
