As a new type of light source, laser has the characteristics of good directionality, high brightness, good monochromaticity and high energy density. The laser-based laser industry has developed rapidly in the world and is now widely used in industrial production, communications, information processing, medical and health, military, cultural education and scientific research. According to statistics, from high-end fiber to common bar code scanners, the market value of laser-related products and services is up to trillions of dollars per year.
In recent years, the laser industry has shown the development trend of ultra-fast laser technology such as fiber laser, picosecond, femtosecond, and ultraviolet laser processing. Laser precision micromachining is gaining more and more applications in new energy, information technology, biomedical, new materials, electronics and aerospace industries, including precision drilling, engraving, grooving, surface texturing, surface modification. , internal modification, finishing, cleaning, additive manufacturing and other processes. In addition, the concepts of intelligent manufacturing and new energy provide a good development environment for lasers.
Since the development of China's first ruby laser by the Changchun Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1961, China's laser technology has also developed rapidly over the past 50 years. At present, laser products have occupied a large market share in China, and initially have the strength to compete with large foreign companies in terms of product quality and performance.
According to data from the Prospective Industry Research Institute, from 2010 to 2016, China's laser industry as a whole maintained a steady growth trend, with a compound compound growth rate of 10.11%. As of 2016, the market size of China's laser industry is about 23.6 billion yuan, an increase of about 8%.
