The rapid growth of electric vehicles in regions such as Europe, Asia Pacific, and the U.S. is further accelerating the adoption of laser cutting machines in the automotive, metal fabrication, and consumer electronics industries.


Economic Burden on the Supply Chain Hampered Market Growth in the Short-term

COVID-19 imperiled production capacities globally, leading to minimized demand for fabrication and manufacturing applications from end-users. Additionally, the decline in laser demand for sheet metal operations across the industry impacted revenues, hampering the market growth in the short term. The pandemic decelerated the economic growth of various regions due to slowed investments in production facilities and decreased capacities. It also caused significant changes in global trade policies, resulting in stringent restrictions on the movement of goods such as lasers, chemicals, and other commodities across geographies. These factors placed economic pressure on the supply chain of goods, impacting the market growth in the short term.

  • For instance, in February 2021, according to Laser Focus World, macro application sales for sheet metal cutting declined by 11% in 2019, which recovered to 3% in 2020, led mainly by fiber lasers.


Integration of IoT and Industry 4.0 in Modern Laser Engineering is Leveraging Trend

Modern engineering has been transforming production styles and capacities globally by integrating industrial IoT and automation. This automation has extended production capacities, offering features such as low labor costs and minimized operational expenses, enhancing the potential of laser-cutting machines. These machines provide operational efficiency with great productivity, thus are expected to bolster the laser cutting machines industry size during the forecast period.

  • For instance, in October 2022, TRUMPF, a global laser-cutting manufacturer, unveiled the upgraded version of the TRULaser 5000 series equipped with a laser providing twice the power. It has an output of 24KW and can boost productivity to 80%.
