The current status and trend analysis of China's laser cutting market in 2020!

Laser cutting is to use the high power density of the laser beam to converge the laser to a small spot, quickly heat the material to vaporize to form a cavity after reaching the boiling point, and then move the laser beam to create a slit on the surface of the material to complete Cutting of processed objects.

1. Laser cutting accounts for 39% of the laser equipment market
Although the laser market has grown in 2019, the growth rate has begun to slow down compared with the previous two years. The sales revenue of laser equipment (including imports) in all fields was 65.8 billion yuan, an increase of 8.8% year-on-year. Under the influence of uncertain global economic trends, the overall sales revenue of China’s laser equipment market is expected to be 64.5 billion yuan in 2020, which is the first negative growth in nearly a decade.

In the industrial laser equipment market, laser cutting is the most widely used, accounting for 39%. Marking and welding rank second and third, accounting for 19% and 12% respectively.

3. Ultrafast laser is expected to become the next growth point of the laser industry

Ultrafast lasers can be used for cutting, marking, perforating and other applications in glass processing. As we enter the 5G era, it combines the development of today's glass technology and glass processing technology, especially from the 5G era for the characteristics and characteristics of glass itself. Starting from the requirements of glass processing technology, ultrafast lasers will have unique application advantages and prospects in glass processing in the 5G era.

According to the "2020 China Laser Industry Development Report" released by the Wuhan Literature Center, my country's ultrafast laser market reached 2.45 billion yuan in 2019, and the 2015-2019 GAGR exceeded 70%, which is much higher than the average growth rate of the laser industry.

4. the technology is advancing in the direction of high power, high precision and large format

In recent years, domestic laser cutting machine technology has made breakthrough developments, and is advancing in the direction of high power, high precision and large format. Under the background of China's intelligent manufacturing, the industrial field is showing a trend of transition from traditional processing to high-end manufacturing. The market scale of China's laser cutting field will always maintain a trend of rapid development.
