Positive Outlook of the Automotive Industry, strongly backed by the Rise of Electric Vehicles
The rise of electric and hybrid vehicles has substantially increased the utilization of new techniques for welding, cutting, and other material processing applications. Fiber laser, being at the forefront in terms of adoption rate across the automotive industry, is likely to witness substantial growth in the coming years.
Reliability and Improved Productivity of Fiber Lasers enhance Market Size
Aerospace and automotive manufacturers are increasingly shifting to fiber lasers to tackle manufacturing challenges. Given the fact that where precision is important, fiber lasers are stable and reliable equipment as they offer the finest beam quality for material processing applications.
A compared to traditional manufacturing processes such as conventional laser welding (gas and solid-state) or resistance spot welding, fiber lasers offer improved energy efficiency, lower maintenance requirements, smaller machine footprint, faster cycle times for high-volume production and improved machine lifetime. Consequently, in fiber laser processes, speed can be maximized whilst material costs and operation costs are minimized.
High-Power Fiber Lasers to witness Notable Growth and Adoption Rate
Heightened use of sheet metal in various end-use industries such as aerospace and automotive especially in design and manufacturing of lightweight automotive body panels is anticipated to augment the sales of fiber lasers. Fiber lasers are widely used in sheet metal cutting applications as a consequence of their unparalleled combination of precision, productivity and cost-effectiveness. Fiber lasers with a power range of 2kW to 6kW have become mainstays for many fabrication and manufacturing sites, offering precise and faster cutting of thin metal as compared to conventional cutting technologies such as carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers, laser welding equipment and plasma torches.
