Ultrafast laser refers to a pulse-controlled laser whose output pulse signal width is in the picosecond (10-12 seconds) level, or less than picosecond level. Divided into picosecond lasers, femtosecond lasers, attosecond lasers, etc. Ultrafast laser is one of the important technical directions in the field of energy laser. As a new material processing technology, it has significant advantages in processing accuracy. With the gradual development and maturity of information technology and the continuous reduction of costs, the ultrafast laser market economy is expected to usher in an explosion in the next few years. The application scenarios continue to develop and land, and the market economy grows rapidly: Ultrafast laser is one of the fastest-growing subdivision research issues in the laser technology industry. It is expected to be widely used in social medical biology, aerospace, consumer electronics, lighting and display in the future. , energy resources and environment, precision machinery and other industries. In 2017, the economic scale of the global ultrafast laser market has exceeded 900 million US dollars, and it is expected to exceed 2.5 billion US dollars by 2020.
In 2017, China's ultrafast laser market will reach about 1.35 billion yuan, and it is expected to exceed 5 billion yuan in 2020. The competition pattern is initially clear, and there is a broad space for the development of imported products. From the perspective of domestic enterprise users, the supplier management of ultrafast lasers can be divided into the following two categories: - One is based on Trumpf, Coherent, NKT, Spectrum Overseas laser manufacturers represented by information physics, etc., and the other domestic manufacturers that have been rapidly catching up with the economy in recent years, such as Huari, Inno, Anyang, Beilin, etc. At present, foreign laser manufacturers have first-mover advantages in the market and technology, occupying more than 80% of the domestic market share, but domestic suppliers are developing rapidly, and import substitution is emerging. This is very similar to the characteristics of domestic alternative high-power fiber lasers.
