Who knows, 12 months later, in 2011 went up record sales of industrial lasers as a perfect ending? This year it happened? Most market analysts fear that the global economy will fall into a second recession. Our life is always filled with all kinds of news media coverage of the economic difficulties, the high United States unemployment rate, the countries of the euro area, the Chinese government has strict regulations for inflation. If that was not enough, we also subjected to cruel consequences of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan friends and colleagues, these natural disasters, resulting in energy supplying countries suffered heavy losses, forced a few months command power. This time facing enough difficulties that some analysts point prestigious global economy may fall into recession in the second conclusion. But what about the results? All that was not the case. Sometimes seems more serious, so that people can not feel at ease to get by, but in the end we arrived efforts. After all this, more and more exciting each quarter from the industrial sector of the new laser. Over time, the situation becomes more exciting at the end of the third quarter, the publication and others are increasingly believe that 2011 promises to be a great success this year. Far ahead of other industries, accounted for the largest share of the market analysts predict the winner broke, many companies are writing their own success story. Although we constantly ask: In a mixed economy, the manufacturing sector continues to grow and gain market share, why this occurs? Then there is around us, and some economists, and in the past by consumer demand for food and household items and spending to stimulate the economy, and now shift their buying habits for non- essential. Seems to be quite the first two years of public restrictions, saying, \\ u0026 ldquo; lifted the threat of a recession, when we buy a new car now. \\ U0026 rdquo; And they did that. 2011 was a record year, similar to the years before the recession, when sales of new cars in North America, primarily because of the small SUV and light truck sales rebound. We obtained excellent results on the laser market last year for the analysis, found in semiconductors and medical devices on the market emerged from the shadow of recession and become stronger and more profitable, is expected to grow in the future. And other industries, such as the energy industry (traditional and alternative energy) is gradually expanding and investing in fixed equipment. Land transport and space also received booming because airlines can not control the plane, the engine speed was quite fast. Who automotive wisely to focus on developing chips for a simpler model, production, sales are also booming. The pillars of the market, such as metal products, aerospace, industry, microelectronics, including many small and medium companies are investing in capital equipment. Summaryshould be celebrated industrial laser sales last year for a record harvest, while the Ministry of selling phone stopped ringing, we did not experience the same 12 months in 2008 disaster. As shown in Table 1, the industrial laser industry has experienced strong double-digit growth for two consecutive years, in 2011 we saw the laser system to break the ceiling $ 7,000,000,000 sales industry, Creating a record of nearly $ 7.1 billion over the station mark. Sales of lasers are also up 12% from 2008 in record numbers, nearly $ 2 billion high. 36 2011 financial reports shows the company that are profitable industry leader, many companies hit the most record sales and profits. In each industry atmosphere filled with optimism Area, the number of visitors to the scene hit a new record, buyers are willing to command the stage, which greatly inspired the trust of many registrar companies. Until the last months of 2011, some orders, a leading full orders received during the first quarter of 2012 supplier is also a constant flow, the production line has begun. \\ U003cP style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e \\ u003cp style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e Table 1 selling industrial laserTable 1 shows a summary # ### the past four years, sales of lasers and laser systems, we can see that after the economic recession (2009), the industry began to recover and grow rapidly, and reached a new high in 2011 2012 should be of moderate expansion. Figure 1 shows the industrial laser Over the past 25 years, the annual growth rate of more classic appearance compound, showing a notorious \\ u0026 ldquo; Hooks and rdquo; curve, which comprises a catastrophic recession is 12.52% of the typical negative growth. \\ U003cP style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e \\ u003cp style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e Figure 1 Growth of industrial lasers incredible yes in 2010 sales of laser systems has exceeded the previous high point in 2008, and the laser turnover is virtually unchanged from the 2008 record, the highest point in 2011 compared to an increase of 12% again . In 2009 felt ldquo \\ u0026; pain of recession and rdquo; gradually disappeared. As shown in Table 2, the total income of all types of lasers in the world, CO2, fiber and other (Diode / excimer) laser in 2011 has kept growing at double figures, the fiber laser is achieved 48% growth, mainly due to the sale of the aspects of cutting sheet metal equipment high power laser which is currently a relatively new market. The mode of slow growth before selling semiconductor lasers to keep the recession has weakened the fiber lasers and lamp-pumped solid state lasers pumped by diode marking and micromachining selling equipment. It now appears that the marking system fiber laser is essentially based on the price to boost sales-oriented consumer market, if sellers turn their attention to the computer market \\ u0026 mdash; \\ U0026 mdash; This has long been a leading provider of market solid state laser. TRUMPF (SPI), a company Rofin (Nufern / Lasag), Coherent Inc. and American Corporation Newport / Spectra-Physics (High Q) are the main suppliers of this market, only the last two can meet sales changes to write this article because they do not provide the fiber lasers. \\ U003cP style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e \\ u003cp style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e Table 2 lasers sales worldwide; Table 3 global sales of laser systemsSales of low power lasers CO2 in Asia (China) as the center continues to grow, but the competition and end users of the price pressure, prompting the sales profit in sales volume to maintain. Although shipments of thousands of units, the result is quite thin. Sales of CO2 high power lasers harvested surprising 14% of the increase, the main buyers of systems cutting sheet metal or the treatment plant, they try to finance environmental credit crunch. Even cutting market sheet was increased sales of high-power fiber lasers erosion, long rooted in this sector CO2 market system is an increase of 13%. In metalworking Annual Exhibition of the American (Fabtech), the question before us is fiber lasers in the future be able to capture much of the market share. Because in the current exhibition of twelve CO2 laser system vendors, only one did not provide fiber lasers, to be able to get much talk about market share, it is difficult to give a simple answer. Expected penetration of the laser fiber Currently about 15% -17% in the next year to increase to 25%, traditional buyers will increase significantly. Therefore, the total market growth will not be greatly affected, until the fiber laser system can be found in a new, untapped markets, as in the market of high-density plasma. Fiber laser and industry leaders of the market success of IPG Photonics Corporation has attracted interest income and mdash the investment community; \\ U0026 mdash; select investors are correct. As shown in Table 2, in 2011 the growth of sales in the global fiber lasers up to 48%. In many exhibitions and conferences at the International Conference (ICALEO) electro-optical applications such as organized by the Laser Institute of America industry laser and a hot topic is the treatment of fiber laser, in particular deals with the application of high-power fiber lasers. Recent exhibitions in Europe and North America machining organized, all eyes are on fiber laser cutting machine exhibits, many enthusiastic potential buyers to exhibitors exceeded. We are talking about the success of fiber lasers in cutting market metal reached, but there are a few observers were surprised to find in a product demonstration site, potential buyers to visit , said \\ u0026 ldquo; I do not know what that fiber laser CO2 laser performance has not, but we are more opsmall mining shaker screentimistic about it. \\ U0026 rdquo; Even tea standing rest areas, fiber lasers often hear about it. This animated conversation everywhere, providers who take advantage of this wave of momentum to attract more potential buyers to focus on their products. Meanwhile, marking and micromachining applications, low power fiber lasers continue to seize the share of low-power lasers to semiconductor lasers and CO2 market. The annual sales of these two techniques can be seen superimposed together, compared to growth in recent years. We came to the conclusion that fiber lasers have not yet found a new large-scale applications, for which the market will be a higher rate. Suppliers and research labs work is expected to open new markets for the laser industry. In industry after the acceptance of high-power semiconductor lasers across the industry, the company has earned a strong growth to the successful conversion of the application of technology from the laboratory to industry. The laser used in the model automotive semiconductor sales finally improved laser brazing. Fortunately, such a system integrators LASERLINE company, part of the installed hardware key after laser technology underutilized for more business benefits. Coupled with the progressive work to improve the beam quality according to the demands of focused beam, suppliers of semiconductor lasers these lasers strong growth in the future with confidence. Turnover laser system as shown in Table 3, and a laser of class digit growth in 2011, corresponding to once more by the fiber laser sales growth cutting machine high power (38%) of lead. However, because the CO2 laser (mainly high wattage appliance) sales increased by nearly $ 500 million to boost sales of fiber lasers have increased by nearly $ 400 million. Both add a total of nearly $ 1 billion increase in revenue is business laser systems to achieve a 16% growth of the main factors. Analysts difficulty 2011 full-year wonder how in the industrial laser market is also more bad news than good news to external circumstances in the international manufacturing market has a good performance. Confident articles on three continents have six fairly large market areas defying the economic malaise, have one world, they are: aerospace, energy (energy that is both traditional and alternative), the electronics, metal products and transportation. Companies in these sectors are experiencing strong demand for the product beyond the number of poor prospects for demand in other markets, such as appliance industry, which is affected by the fallout from the housing crisis. Banking on China to take swift action to control inflation (which caused a sharp drop in investment in equipment), which saved the jobs of many European companies, the main customers of its products from China. Last year, in such a sad, it's easy to find more than 20 types of laser applications demonstrated by the strength of the market. These applications include the assembly drilling turbines, battery welding, production of solar cells, cutting the screen of the smartphone and brazing car roof. Finally, commonly used to describe the industrial laser derogatory \\ u0026 mdash market; \\ U0026 mdash; \\ U0026 ldquo; subdivision \\ u0026 rdquo; or \\ u0026 quot; \\ U0026 rdquo ;, become a diversified industrial laser industry survive the possible emergence of a global economic environment on the market double dip praise. All the industrial laser market performed well in 2011, and many of the largest companies in the full purpose, will bring a strong first quarter 2012 shipments. \\ U003cP style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e \\ u003cp style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e Figure 2 lasers by applyingThe turnover Figure 2 shows a high power laser used in metallurgy have a dominant position in the sales of laser, more than double all other categories of sales applications. Half of the total turnover of sales of laser CO2 laser, laser equipment contributed 42% of shipments, sales through low power devices more than 20,000 units. The average selling price rises sheet cutting machine, because the process used in the production of a high-power laser, such as CO2 or fiber laser. Items do not have an automated system will be equipped with these devices, including computers, they are typically sold at handling hardware accessories. An estimated 25 percent of the system includes the sale of these items, the average selling price increased to $ 155,000 at least, bringing turnover metal cutting a total of over $ 3.2 billion. Table 4 and Figure 3 shows the laser category for the metalworking market. For CO2 laser market dominance in this application, we are not surprised, but it should be noted that high-power fiber lasers have increased by almost 70%. 2011, sales of the estimated kilowatt fiber lasers at around 700, most commonly used in systems for metal cutting range. CO2 lasers in sales in 2011 showed strong growth, as this market is mainly an OEM supplier, they integrate these lasers, CO2 lasers, as mentioned earlier is \\ u0026 quot; recession-proof \\ u0026 rdquo; product. American suppliers when customers buy encountered financing difficulties of the situation systems. Many people think that this is a dynamic market established a roadblock. \\ U003cP style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e : Laser proportion \\ u003cp style = 'text-align center \\ u003e Figure 3 for the metalworking \\ u003cp style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e \\ u003cp style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e Table 4 Sales of laser Table 5 and Figure 4 for the metalworking semiconductor laser show and scope of market segments microfabrication. The market grew 23% in 2011, mainly due to the micro-processing of these applications, including drilling printed circuit board, solar etching, welding process and communication elements screen smartphone. This is a diverse market, most of the equipment installed in the home of the Asian market, as the market for drilling PCB active Taiwan. \\ U003cP style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e \\ u003cp style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e Figure 4 proportion of turnover in the field of semiconductors and laser micromachining \\ u003cp style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e \\ u003cp style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e Table 5 lasers used in semiconductor and micro -Computers sales in 2000 At the process of bauxite mining in jamaicafirst this issue once applications micromachining as a market with good growth prospects. Although the forecast becomes a reality, but the industry has been hit hard recession. On the other hand, the semiconductor industry is mainly concentrated in the Southeast, the producers of the success of the region of the shadow of the recession, which also gave some suppliers and equipment options, even against the success. Sales ultrafast pulse (UFP) Lasers now to double the annual rate of growth, this trend is expected to continue to grow in the coming years to promote the market. In our market research, sales of laser UFP are included in the category of solid-state lasers. Laser marking / engraving as shown in Table 6 and Figure 5 can be seen in the industrial laser marking and engraving has been and will continue to be an important market. These markets are controlled to some extent by government regulations and industry, their products are safety, insurance and traceability requirements, they are value added. Because of the need to remain constantly in a variety of materials, legible signs, including laser marking identification cards, airplane parts, car VIN labels, is a choice on the market today, and increasingly used. With the passage of time, these applications will only increase. \\ U003cP style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e \\ u003cp style = 'text-align: center \\ u003e Figure 5 lasers for marking and engraving proportion of \\ u003cp style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e \\ u003cp style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e Table 6 Sales of lasers for marking engraving laser marking, 2011 and burning applications CCP installed over 22,000 units of semiconductor lasers and fiber lasers and CO2 lasers of 11,000 units, the main market for these products in Asia. Fiber lasers continue to gain market share of laser diode pumped solid. As shown in Table 6, sales of fiber laser supplier in 2011 increased by 34%, while sales of semiconductor lasers increased by only 4%. Throughout the \\ u0026 ldquo; Other \\ u0026 rdquo; market is growing at sites of direct laser diode and its sales have steadily increased to a level they could in the future become a specialized categories of branches. Sales of semiconductor lasers is about 1300 units, mostly micro-machining and marking industry. Other applications Table 7 and Figure 6 details the laser has not spoken before, and in various other industries use. This group contains an additive manufacturing laser surface treatment, heat treatment and rapid manufacturing applications. 2011 recipes in category 127 million dollars in sales, it's not a big market and its main sales (43%) is dominated by solid-state lasers, it is expected to be replaced by fiber lasers in the years to come. \\ U003cP style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e \\ u003cp style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e Figure 6 laser sales in other applications \\ u003cp style = 'text -align: center \\ u003e \\ u003cp style =' text-align: center '\\ u003e Table 7 applies to other aspects of the sale in this \\ u0026 ldquo; Other \\ u0026 rdquo; category may contain some kind of new application technologies can become the driving force behind the growth of the industry in the coming year. For example, laser additive manufacturing technology (LAM), the laser cladding that its key processes. Our lasers, high power CO2 from start to explore the imprint of LAM in the applications of laser cladding and glazing. Over the years, these applications have received only a handful of success, but in Eastern Europe and China for the development of advanced technology, the high power lasers are used to repair and renovate the old parts metal, technology began to be presented at international conferences. Since the company began to limit the number of countries the most developed manufacturing company and mdash; \\ U0026 mdash; declining demand for certain products. They noted that the ability to be mass-produced by making the laser power by laser. Now, this technology is more widely key industry sectors to assess and begin to identify future growth markets. Given the limited circumstances set up the official inquiry and information, keep track of all laser installed on the world market has been very difficult. For example, in the laser market in China, official data was made public only the introduction of the machine after a few years. Therefore, analysts must rely on reports published by listed companies, such as laser Han, and collect relevant information contact the same industry. As shown in Figure 7, and now the Asian market with a laser facility rate and system of 33% compared to the previous market leader in Europe (32%). China is a major user of industrial laser systems in the region, accounting for all the devices in East Asia can be as high as 85% proportion. \\ U003cP style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e \\ u003cp style = 'text-align: center' \\ u003e Figure 7 regional distribution now laser sales in Japan### # market downturn, but 48% of sales of all laser systems in the Asian market. Looks like China has recently taken action and mdash; \\ U0026 mdash; increase exports to a number of other Asian markets to catch slowdown in the United States and European growth and mdash; \\ U0026 mdash; This will force other markets inspire national industrial equipment to remain competitive, to feed fertile market for industrial laser. Therefore, Asia will continue to be an important market in the coming years, especially in India, manufacturing ready to go, seeks to achieve its objectives, other countries in the region to become the largest exporters raw materials. 2011 market performance flat in European countries, financial reporting and down like a roller coaster, the euro is attacked, one country after another country to the brink of crisis the main threat to the entire euro zone. At the time of this writing, the euro as a common currency may continue the problems are questions, the consequences may affect the economic situation in all Member States. North America (primarily the United States) still hold a market share of 16%, mainly due to high demand in the international market for products manufactured in the United States, bringing strong growth exports, such as agriculture, heavy equipment and aircraft manufacturing. Other areas, user John Deere equipment with ubiquitous green hat appeared on the Web report worldwide, even in Africa and South America can find its trace, which is divided into two markets in Figure 7 \\ ldquo u0026 \\ u0026 rdquo ;. African markets were gradually also take quite a long time, but South America is now a large number of industrial laser systems suppliers target areas and sections discuss ways to address this growing market in future reports ( mainly Brazil). The dynamic growth forecastbecome the reason described above, if some of them promise change, this will result in 2012 industrial laser gently movements of the market. Excerpts from the news later in 2011, are an example: 1 \\ u0026 ldquo; European manufacturers of machine tools have warned growth will slow in the \\ u0026 rdquo; 2 \\ u0026 ldquo; manufacturing in China for the first time after 33 months to get export contracts and rdquo; 3 \\ u0026 ldquo; Economic growth in India to a screeching halt at 6.9% and rdquo; 4 \\ u0026 ldquo; too late, Germany, the United States must learn and rdquo; 5 sobering and ldquo; ten threats to the Chinese economy and rdquo; Then magazines Title: \\ u0026 ldquo; Manufacturing in the United States (high) Cost \\ u0026 rdquo; ('Industry Week (Industry Week)' 2011 November issue); \\ U0026 ldquo; barriers in China: How to avoid a hard landing \\ u0026 and rdquo \\ u0026 ldquo; manufactured outside the United States industry slowed and rdquo; (Both appear in the Wall Street Journal (Wall Street Journal) '2011 年 12 月 2 日) \\ U0026 ldquo; Battery companies must redouble their efforts and rdquo; ('Wall Street Journal' December 5, 2011). However, in November the 'Week of the industry is also good news and mdash; \\ U0026 mdash; \\ U0026 ldquo; Brazil is booming and rdquo ;. Daily News Back to Guru steel in early October 2011 on the expression of the future of the steel market is not optimistic, as I write this article when they have some new messages to show more concern. Weto this forecast to spend a lot of energy, a lot of work to do. On one hand, the poor economic performance of the manufacturing sector in Asia (China), while the other selected sectors of strategic importance in high \\ u0026 mdash; \\ U0026 mdash; are also major users of industrial lasers. In this category is behind the sheet metal products, it is essential for countries on the basis of industrial mdash \\ u0026; \\ U0026 mdash; manufacturing economy. If this happens, for example, the market has slowed in these countries led to sales of laser metal cutting machine drop in sales of high power lasers will be immediately affected, in December 2008 is a good example. Laser cutting machine sales fell only 10% will cause the entire system to reduce the total turnover of $ 300 million clearing the revenue growth of 30 percent in 2011 Thus, you can see the fragility of the international market, people are worried. In the process of preparing this article, from a variety of sources and is the baseline review of the Department, the resulting prediction is 2012 will be a year of low growth slowed. Even the largest provider of Trumpf laser systems (TRUMPF) company admitted, taking into account all possibilities, the company could not get a 51% growth in 2010/2011 as a year, but the company expects a double-digit growth for at least stay. Because of the financial year of the company include the record of the industry in the 2011 six months, this prediction seems to be possible, although in 2012 the market is weak. After careful consideration of the available facts and on the basis of industry suppliers (ie the steel sector) to evaluate, we finally found the sales of laser in 2012 growth of 5%, while sales of laser system will grow by 4%. We believe that, given the current state of the industrial market, these figures can be achieved. We saw a very good first quarter, followed by a slowdown in the second half of 2012, and finally finished with a regular throughout the year growth. We are constantly trying to give us this contact forecasts owner, there is not a major objection. In 2011, after a record growth remains weak, the situation is not so bad. Finally, I wish to state that: When I predicted last year, the Annual Review article economic magazine industry, did not predict 2011 will be a record year. I forecast 2011 revenue increased 16% and revenue laser system increased by 14%. As they say, predicting very close to reality, just a little worse. During the past four years CAGR of 10.83%, with almost 25 years of data in relation to the distance is not too great.
