Laser Technology Market to be Worth $32.8 Billion by 2031

Laser Technology Market by Type (Solid-state Laser, Gas Laser, Liquid Laser), Application (Laser Processing, Optical Communications), End User (Industrial, Healthcare, Commercial, Telecommunications), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2031


Meticulous Research®—a leading global market research company, published a research report titled, Laser Technology Market by Type (Solid-state Laser, Gas Laser, Liquid Laser), Application (Laser Processing, Optical Communications), End User (Industrial, Healthcare, Commercial, Telecommunications), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2031.

According to this latest publication from Meticulous Research®, the laser technology market is projected to reach $32.8 billion by 2031, at a CAGR of 10.6% from 2024–2031. The growth of the laser technology market is driven by the increasing adoption of laser technology in the electronics sector, the transition towards micro and nanodevices, and the preference for laser-based material processing over traditional material processing methods. However, the high cost of laser technology may restrain market growth.

Furthermore, the utilization of laser technology in robotics and its applications in optical communication are expected to create market growth opportunities. However, the technical complexity involved in high-power lasers is a significant challenge impeding the market’s growth. Additionally, the rising demand for laser technology in 3D printing is a prominent trend in this market.

The laser technology market is segmented by type (solid-state laser [fiber laser, yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) laser, Thin-disk laser, and ruby laser], gas laser [Co2 laser, excimer laser, He-Ne laser, argon laser, and chemical laser], semiconductor laser, and liquid laser), application (laser processing [macroprocessing {cutting, welding, and drilling}, microprocessing, and marking and engraving], optical communications, and other applications), end user (industrial, semiconductor & electronics, automotive, telecommunications, aerospace & defense, healthcare, commercial, and other end users), and geography. The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyses the market at the country and regional levels.

Based on type, the laser technology market is segmented into solid-state laser, gas laser, semiconductor laser, and liquid laser. In 2024, the solid-state laser segment is expected to account for the largest share of over 45.1% of the laser technology market. This segment's large market share can be attributed to the increasing number of surgeries performed using solid-state laser technology, the rising utilization of solid-state lasers for micromaterial processing, and the growing adoption of YAG lasers for high-power applications.

However, the semiconductor laser segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This segment’s growth is driven by factors such as the increasing utilization of semiconductor lasers due to their higher reliability, compact size, low power consumption, and high efficiency, the rising adoption of semiconductor lasers in the healthcare sector for a wide range of applications, including cosmetic procedures, medical diagnosis, and therapies, and the rising demand for semiconductor lasers, particularly laser diodes such as Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers (VCSELs), in smartphones for sensing applications.

Based on application, the laser technology market is segmented into laser processing, optical communications, and other applications. In 2024, the laser processing segment is expected to account for the largest share of over 58.5% of the laser technology market. This segment’s large market share can be attributed to the advantages offered by laser processing over conventional processing technologies, the rising number of laser-based surgeries, and the growing demand for high-precision, flexibility, and quality during material processing.

However, the optical communications segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This segment’s growth is driven by factors such as the increasing demand for VCSELs for data transmission, driven by the proliferation of digital solutions requiring high-speed and efficient data transmission and the growing utilization of laser technology in hyperscale data centers to reduce power consumption and enable low-latency, high-performance computing capabilities.

Based on end user, the laser technology market is segmented into industrial, semiconductor & electronics, automotive, telecommunications, aerospace & defense, healthcare, commercial, and other end users. In 2024, the industrial segment is expected to account for the largest share of over 21.1% of the laser technology market. This segment’s large market share can be attributed to the increasing adoption of laser technology in industrial settings for achieving high accuracy in cutting, welding, and marking tasks. Additionally, laser technology enables non-contact processing, which reduces wear and tear on machinery and eliminates the need for physical tooling. Moreover, laser technology ensures consistent quality across production batches, thereby reducing defects and enhancing overall product quality.

However, the healthcare segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This segment’s growth is driven by factors such as the increasing adoption of lasers for a wide range of applications, including cosmetic procedures, medical diagnosis, and therapies, the rising utilization of laser technology for treating cutaneous malignancies and primary skin diseases, and the growing availability of cost-effective laser treatments.

Based on geography, the laser technology market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. In 2024, Asia-Pacific is expected to account for the largest share of over 46.5% of the laser technology market. Asia-Pacific’s significant market share can be attributed to the rising manufacturing activities in countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, and India, the large consumer electronics and automobile markets in China, and the proliferation of data centers, resulting in the substantial demand for fiber lasers.

However, the market in North America is projected to register the highest CAGR of over 10.0% during the forecast period. The growth of this regional market is driven by factors such as the increasing utilization of laser technology in healthcare for procedures such as cosmetic surgeries, dermatology treatments, and ophthalmology; the rising integration of laser technology across manufacturing, automotive, and aerospace sectors to enhance processing capabilities and precision; and the increasing adoption of laser technology within the defense sector, particularly in applications like laser weaponry, energy systems, and defense equipment.
