Global Laser Initiators Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A laser initiator is a device used to start an explosive chain reaction in a laser-induced plasma detonator. It is an important part of the technology of lasers for weapons and nuclear weapons.

100 Micron:

100 micron is a small size particle, approximately 0.1 mm in diameter. It is one of the key sizes used in laser printing and scanning technologies owing to its properties such as high optical quality and low spot size on the target material.

200 Micron:

200 Micron is the size of a particle, approximately 0.2 mm in diameter. It is used as an input parameter for laser systems and semiconductor devices that produce light by stimulated emission of electrons from a high-speed electron beam. 200 microns represents the wavelength of red light with maximum optical intensity per unit volume and per unit mass (W/m).

Application Insights:

The space carrier application segment led the market in 2017 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030. The growth can be attributed to increasing demand for launching satellites into space on a commercial basis. Laser-based Initiators are used in satellite launch vehicles (SLVs) for igniting the propellant engine, which propels the vehicle forward during launch.

The satellite launch segment accounted for over 30% of global laser initiator market share in terms of revenue in 2017 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to rising demand from communication companies such as AT&T Inc., Hughes Network Systems, Inc., etc. For instance, Hughes Space & Communications LLC designed and built an orbital laser system that was integrated with a spacecraft bus capable of supporting up 8kg payloads into geosynchronous orbit (GTO).

Regional Analysis:

The Asia Pacific regional market accounted for the largest revenue share in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to increasing space programs, satellite launches, and nuclear power plant projects in countries such as India, China, Japan, South Korea. Laser technology has found applications in mining exploration as well as water desalination plants across this region.

Europe is projected to witness significant growth over the next eight years owing to growing investments from laser industry players along with rising demand for high precision equipment from various end-use industries such as metrology & measurement; science & engineering; industrial; entertainment & media; and others. In addition, technological advancements coupled with stringent government regulations pertaining to radiation emission are anticipated to drive innovation of laser systems across Europe thereby driving regional market growth during the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for laser initiators in the defense sector due to their high precision and accuracy.
  • Growing demand for laser initiators from the medical industry for use in surgeries and other treatments.
  • Rising demand from the automotive industry for use in advanced safety features and emission control systems.
  • Increasing research and development activities by leading players to develop new and innovative products that can cater to various application needs of different industries.
  • Growing popularity of laser-based systems over traditional combustion-based systems owing to their superior performance, efficiency, and environmental friendliness
