LASER Light Cables Market Overview
As per latest research estimates, the LASER light cables market is expected to witness a high growth in the forecast period 2021-2031 with a CAGR of 14 to 15%. Increasing electrification in transportation is understood to drive the demand for LASER processing and in turn the demand for these cables
What is Driving the Demand for LASER Light Cables
The usage of LASERs in broad field of applications like engraving, metal cutting, texturing, engraving, drilling, welding, etc. in metalworking process which in turn caters to plethora of industries such as automotive, heavy engineering, general manufacturing.
Also wiring requirements in electronics telecommunications and medical equipment has necessitated the use of Laser light cables. As per opinions by LASER light cable manufacturers, the Electric vehicle sales rose record high to 3 million in 2020, which was responsible for highest sales for these cables in year 2020.
When compared to larger standard wiring, the cable can save space. This property has made it popular for a variety of vehicle safety and lighting features. Another factor which is driving the sales of these cables is that Fiber LASERs provide precise, fine welding and fast cutting, but disk LASERs with their ease of power scalability can offer manufacturers flexibility.
The flexibility of with which LASER can now be integrated into the system with the help of connectors while complying with LASER safety regulations draws the demand from the end users. Moreover, for industrial LASER applications such as vehicle manufacturing, 24/7 uptime is even more critical.
Automation to Boost LASER Light Cables Sales
With the advent of automation in accordance with Industry 4.0 norms, the sales for these cables rose in the historical period 2016-2020
A technique wherein, operation time on any numerous job is maximized. Operators also increase capacity while reducing the hourly cost of LASER processing
When the fixed costs (such as the machine investment, reflected in depreciation) can be distributed across a larger number of hours or parts, manufacturers gain the freedom to be more competitive in pricing or to increase their margin.
During the Covid-19 pandemic the demand saw an obvious drop due to the stoppage of manufacturing industry. The ongoing crisis caused by the COVID – 19 pandemic, brought the global automotive industry to an abrupt halt, with sales plummeting in most markets. The pandemic, although gave automobile industry players an opportunity to relocate themselves by focusing on connectivity and electrification.
With stringent carbon dioxide emissions goals in play by various countries, the electric vehicle market is expected to tremendously grow.
China LASER Light Cables Market Overview
According to the United Nations Statistics Division, China makes and sells more manufacturing goods than any other country on the planet and accounted for 28.7% of global manufacturing in 2019
Due to advanced infrastructure, abundance of resources and readily available labor makes China earn this title. The iron and steel production dominating, in turn the vehicle production, the LASER light cable market value in China, is amongst the highest in the global market.
Germany Demand Outlook for LASER light cables
Germany, the manufacturing capital of Europe, and specializes in medium-range technology products, demonstrating that quality is the primary driver of German international success, that price and cost advantage determine competitiveness in some product groups, and that R&D efforts have contributed to the development and maintenance of German manufacturing competitiveness, leading to the highest consumer of industrial automation tools, signifying the largest demand creator of LASER light cables in Europe.
The electric vehicle sales in Germany was highest amongst Europe Union in 2020, accounting for such huge sales from the country. The electrification of the entire transportation sector wherein, light cables are used for laser processing of copper, a metal of choice in electric vehicles due to its high conductivity, is driving the demand in Germany.
