Applying a laser beam to the melted surface of a material to complete the process is called laser processing. It is a technology used for laser irradiation, laser cutting, surface modification, laser engraving, laser drilling and micromachining, so this leads to products such as laser engraving machines
LUTON, BEDFORDshire, United Kingdom, September 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exactitude Consultancy, the market research and consultancy arm of Ameliorate Digital Consultancy Private Limited, has completed and published the final copy of its detailed research report on laser engraving machines market.
The laser engraving machines market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.61% from 2022 to 2029. By 2029, it is expected to exceed $3.6 billion.
Laser engraver are used to engrave or create permanent marks on a variety of surface types. Through research, HTPOW found that many industries are promoting the use of laser marking machines because they are faster and more reliable than other marking technologies such as dot peen marking machines. International demand for laser marking equipment has also been affected by Industry 4.0. The major factors driving the expansion of the laser engraving machine market are the rising demand for automation, high speed, and accuracy in a range of industries including food & beverage, automotive, and packaging industries.
Here are some of the ways that various industries primarily use laser engravers: CO2 lasers are used to engrave alphanumeric codes such as part labels, part numbers, lot numbers, and brands. Barcode labeling and marking is done using Nd:YAG lasers. Micromaterial engraving of semiconductors, electronic chips, motherboards, etc. is done with the help of diode engraving lasers. In addition, laser engravers allow for permanent product customization. One of the product identification and security solutions for industrial sectors such as machine tools and automotive includes its brand name, logo, batch number, etc.
In May 2022, the Class 1 fully safe laser station, Ortur Laser Master 3 from Ortur is launched. Due to its 100% construction and simple, compact design, this laser engraver is the most efficient and safest choice available. Thanks to its touch screen, it couldn't be easier to control marking and use these functions without a computer.
May 2022 Sintech Optronics' 1940nm series of CW and QCW fiber lasers generate up to 100 W of CW power and up to 625 W of QCW pulsed power from a small air-cooled 48 V DC driver module. For the most demanding applications, these very reliable and energy efficient lasers deliver up to 7J of energy at a wavelength of 1940 nm.

The Asia Pacific region holds the largest CAGR during the forecast period.
Asia Pacific accounted for the largest market share of over 40% in 2020 and is expected to continue dominating the market throughout the expected period. China and India contributed the most to the growth of the laser engraving machine market in the region owing to the increasing use of laser marking equipment in the manufacturing industry in the region. The adoption of modern production technologies in China's machine tool industry and the developing aerospace and military industries in the region are driving the expansion of the laser engraving machine market. Other factors contributing to its continued dominance include rising foreign investments and shifting of many companies' production facilities to countries such as China and India. E.g,
Growing demand for unique device identification and deep engraving
Growing need for unique device identification and deep engraving during the manufacturing process for the purposes of traceability, internal control, production process management, and product quality verification is expected to drive the laser engraving machine market demand. These marks, especially those created with fiber laser equipment, finish in less time and will not fade even after repeated exposure to heat and harsh chemicals. Hence, rising demand for these machines in the defense and electronics industries is expected to support market expansion throughout the forecast period.
Increasingly stringent government regulations and guidelines
Increasing stringent government rules and recommendations to mark surgical and medical devices to enhance their traceability are also expected to drive the global laser engraving machine market demand. On the other hand, there has been a significant increase in the demand for leather goods that can be customized with initials or names such as leather jewellery, wallets, and handbags. Hence, the demand from these industries is expected to drive the development of engraving technologies such as laser marking systems throughout the forecast period. However, the high cost of laser engraving equipment hinders their usage in small and medium enterprises, which may hamper the expansion of the market.
Key market insights in the report:
Depending on the product, the fiber laser engraving machine industry is expected to grow at the largest CAGR throughout the forecast period due to its features, including longer lifespan, higher precision, and suitability for engraving on hard surfaces such as metals .
Regionally, Asia Pacific accounted for the majority of the market share and is expected to grow throughout the forecast period. This is thanks to the region's thriving aerospace and defense industry, as well as the advanced production techniques adopted by China's machine tool industry.
