The road to the rise of domestic fiber laser cutting machine
In recent years, the rapid development of laser processing technology in China has led to innovations in emerging fields and traditional manufacturing processes. Following Europe, America, Japan and South Korea, China is striding into the era of 'light' processing. Among them, fiber laser cutting machines are the most eye-catching.
The laser equipment market has a bright future
According to the China Laser Industry Development Report, thanks to the multi-point blooming of downstream emerging demand and the continuous growth of demand in traditional fields, the size of China's laser equipment market reached 49.5 billion yuan in 2017, a year-on-year increase of 28%. From 2010 to 2017 Compound growth rate of 26%.
According to the 2018 China Laser Industry Development Report, China's laser equipment market is expected to exceed 60 billion yuan in 2018, a year-on-year increase of more than 20%.

Fiber laser becomes mainstream
According to LMR statistics, global laser sales in 2017 increased by 18.2%, of which industrial lasers increased by 26.1%; industrial fiber lasers increased by 33.7% due to their compact structure, stability and reliability, and high photoelectric conversion efficiency. Increase to 47%.
Technavio predicts that the demand for fiber lasers in the Asia-Pacific region will increase to 46% of the world in 2021, mainly due to the strong demand in the automotive, consumer electronics, semiconductor, and machining manufacturing industries in the Asia-Pacific region. Fiber lasers become the mainstream, and the Asia-Pacific region will become the most important market for the global industrial laser industry
The rapid growth of industrial lasers in 2017 was mainly due to the substantial growth of fiber lasers. Fiber laser technology continues to make breakthroughs, the downstream demand of the industry has grown steadily, and the market size of the fiber laser industry has exceeded US$2 billion.
The popularity of fiber lasers is inseparable from the market environment and its own characteristics. Compared with other types of lasers, it has the advantages of low manufacturing cost, high stability, and fast heat dissipation. It is suitable for the large-scale growth of industrial cutting and welding requirements.

Localization promotes a win-win situation
my country's fiber laser industrialization started relatively late. In the early days, almost all domestic fiber lasers were imported from overseas. However, fiber laser technology has developed rapidly in recent years. The annual growth rate of fiber lasers exceeds 35%, which is much higher than the global industrial lasers' growth rate of 7%-9%.
From 2012 to 2016, it is precisely because of the high rate of localization of low-power lasers that domestic manufacturers have entered the market to force overseas fiber laser faucets to reduce prices. During the period of low-power lasers, the price reduction rate was more than 50%. The increase in localization rate promotes the decline of laser prices, end users and laser equipment companies achieve a win-win situation, and accelerate the application of laser equipment.
In 2016, domestically produced medium-power fiber lasers accounted for 58.5% of the market, an increase of more than 40% over 2013, and the sales of medium-power fiber laser cutting equipment increased by 166%.
Medium and high-power lasers have a low market localization rate, and domestic downstream companies have weak bargaining power, and the price drop is smaller than that of low-power lasers. Take a 2000W laser as an example, the average market price in 2012-2016 dropped from 1.3-1.6 million to 1-1.4 million, a drop of only about 20%.
Import is better than domestic production. This concept is a major obstacle to the increase in the localization rate of high-power fiber laser cutting machines. In fact, in the field of fiber laser cutting machines, domestic fiber lasers have already caught up, and a large number of outstanding laser leading companies have emerged in China, including Wuhan, Chuangxin Technology, JPT and so on.
At present, Wuhan has begun to roll out 10,000-watt high-power fiber lasers in batches, breaking the monopoly of overseas high-power fiber lasers. Its high-power fiber lasers have been put into practical use in HGLASER MARVEL series fiber laser cutting machines.
In the future, as the localization of high-power fiber lasers increases, the price of fiber lasers will continue to decline. Domestic companies are expected to expand the domestic market and compete for overseas markets by virtue of their cost-effective advantages.
