Laser Market Data

Optech Consulting covers the laser market since 1992. The data in our market reports is based on primary market research and especially on numerous and continued discussions with companies in the laser industry, worldwide.

Definitions: A "laser source" is a laser. A "laser system" is a system (machine) including a laser. Exception: for microlithography we count the DUV or EUV light source as the system, i.e. we do not include the full value of the wafer stepper/scanner.
