The global laser cutting machines market size is expected to reach USD 10,351.0 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period, according to a study conducted by Grand View Research, Inc. Over the forecast period, it is anticipated that the growing trend of automation in the manufacturing sector and the rising demand for the end-use industry will increase demand for these machines.
The growing application of CO2, fiber, and Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (YAG) lasers in various applications, such as industrial sectors and consumer electronics, is predicted to boost the demand for laser cutting machines. Industries such as consumer electronics are contributing to the market growth owing to the increasing use of lasers in material processing operations such as pruning, welding, and engraving. Furthermore, the requirement for high-power input and performance-based cutting tools drives demand and market growth for laser cutting machines over the forecast period.
The development of innovative process lasers to maximize the manufacture of tailored three-dimensional glass elements, as well as a shift out of traditional semiconductor lasers and towards quantum cascade lasers, will likely drive up the demand for laser cutting machines. Continuous developments in laser technology enable manufacturers to engage in R&D to obtain a competitive advantage. Furthermore, due to the demand for high-speed and precision cutting and drilling the integration of the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, and automation software with drilling machines is also supporting the laser cutting machine industry’s growth.
Major players are resorting to strategies such as product launches, mergers & acquisitions, and expansions to gain greater market shares. For instance, in May 2022, Yamazaki Mazak Pvt. Ltd. announced the launch of 3D based fiber laser cutting machine for cutting steel products- FG -400 NEO. The 3D laser is equipped with an efficient laser fiber oscillator which offers efficient energy conversion and enhanced productivity.
The laser is also compatible with cutting copper, brass, and aluminum. The laser is outfitted with a feature that enables users to easily modify the laser beam's diameter and form, enabling the cutting of sheets of different thicknesses. The oscillator's maximum output is limited to 4 kW, along with a rapid input rate on the X, Y, and Z axes is 60, 36, and 30 m/min, respectively. The continuous launch of advanced products is contributing to the laser cutting machine industry’s growth.
