In this report, according to Technavio analysts, one of the key factors contributing to the growth of the global CO2 laser market is the rapid growth of high-precision machining:

Global CO2 laser market: Rapid growth of high-precision machining

The reducing sizes of instruments and devices is increasing their overall complexity, making precision and laser machining essential to design such devices. As a result, device manufacturers focus on maintaining the quality of the final product. The increasing technical and design complexity of medical devices compel medical device manufacturers to deploy CO2 laser systems. CO2 laser systems can be used to cut highly precise features in different substrates.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for semiconductor equipment, “CO2 lasers are often used for welding a variety of dissimilar materials, including exotic-grade metals. These metals are otherwise difficult to weld together. Such laser welding properties find high use in manufacturing thin-walled and tubular medical components. Therefore, the transition towards high-precision machining will create a demand for highly efficient CO2 lasers during the forecast period.”
