Vision Research Reports says, the global laser plastic welding market is expected to grow a CAGR of 8.4% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027 and to reach valuation US$ 1.7 billion by 2027.

The market growth is driven by a host of factors, including soaring demand from end-use industries, progress in laser technology, dwindling prices of laser technology, exceptional versatility, and progress in technology. Companies operating in the current landscape should focus on expanding their product portfolio, integrate new technologies, and enhance the quality of their products. The automotive and healthcare sectors will present players in the laser plastic welding market with plenty of opportunities as the demand for improved joining and assembly technologies is anticipated to move in the upward trajectory, particularly from these two sectors.

Consistent Demand from Automotive Industry to Bolster Market Growth

The amount of plastics used in the automotive industry is consistently rising, as it lowers the manufacturing cost and reduces the weight of vehicles. Manufacturers operating the automotive industry used laser plastic welding frequently to join interior and exterior plastic components, as it provides excellent joint quality and precise welding. Furthermore, strong joints formed with laser plastic welding with high precision and accuracy that do not affect the sensitive components close to the welding area, resulting into a high requirement of the laser plastic welding in the automotive industry. In addition, shifting inclination of consumers towards highly aesthetic automotive vehicles across continents is creating ample amount of opportunities for manufacturers. Besides this, the rising purchasing capability of an average person to buy vehicles is one of the vital factors fueling the expansion of the laser plastic welding market.

Plastic to Metal Joining Welding Gaining Momentum in Global Market

Metallic industrial products are robust and ductile, and plastics are lightweight and easily formable. A variety of plastic and metallic products is used in industries frequently, owing to their significant properties. The importance of joining metal and plastic has witnessed a tremendous rise in recent years. There are various methods such as rivets, adhesives, and others to join these plastics and metals. However, the current trend of laser-assisted metal plastic joining (LAMP) is gaining traction across the globe, owing to its numerous applications such as short time joining, stable joint for a long time, easy automation, and no requirement of adhesives and rivets. Furthermore, the laser-assisted metal plastic joining (LAMP) method is applicable to join two dissimilar metals with a plastic intermediate sheet, to prevent local electric-physical corrosion in metals. The rising adoption of laser-assisted metal plastic joining (LAMP) method over the other conventional method to join metal and plastic product effectively is projected to boost the laser plastics welding market growth during the forecast period.

Lucrative Opportunities in Emerging Countries

Laser plastic welding systems and techniques are predominantly used in various key industries such as electrical & electronics, healthcare, automotive, and others. The demand for advanced laser plastic welding systems in these industries is consistently rising due to its ability to weld 3D and complex shapes. Prominent end-use industries such as healthcare and electrical & electronics have witnessed a healthy growth over the past 10 years, and this is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Moreover, the market growth is not just in mature markets of North America and European countries, but also in fast-growing and developing countries such as China and India. Rapid penetration of healthcare and electronics industries in these countries is likely to create a positive impact on the demand for laser plastic welding machines in the upcoming years.

Rapidly Dropping Prices for Lasers and Laser Systems Accelerates Market Growth

  • Over the past few years, the pricing for diode and Nd:YAG lasers has dropped significantly. Laser sources with the power of around 100W, which used to cost significantly a decade ago are now available in affordable pricing. This has resulted in a decline in the prices of laser systems. The manufacturers of almost all the industries deal with plastic materials due to its various advantages over metals, such as much lower weight and ease in processing. This has encouraged a large number of small manufacturers to emerge in the market and compete in the manufacturing of plastic products. Until the last few years, only some of the large manufacturers with high production output were capable of affording the laser technology for material processing.
  • Drop in prices of laser technology and enhanced availability, along with high applicability has encouraged moderate and small manufacturers to adopt the laser plastic welding technology. The decline in the prices of the laser technology, accompanied by globally increasing manufacturing output, is anticipated to drive the laser plastic welding market during the forecast period.

Requirement of Compatible Combination of Materials Restricts Laser Plastic Welding Market Growth

  • The laser plastic welding creates high precision welds with a high-quality finish and thus, seems to enhance the ease in plastic processing. On the other hand, the application of laser technology is dependent on the condition of materials to be weld. Various factors such as thickness of the upper material through which the laser beam will pass, surface roughness of the surfaces to be weld, color of the two materials, material used, etc.
  • The laser plastic welding is not a big challenge when one of the materials is transparent and the other is black. The difficulty level increases with combinations such as black on black, colored on black, two different colored materials, two transparent materials and most difficult with a pair of two white materials.
  • Moreover, physical properties such as roughness play a crucial role in the quality of weld as with the minute change in the distance of the absorbent surface from the laser source, the diameter of the laser spot changes, resulting in change into energy density and thus non-uniform weld. Thus, the low surface finish of the surface results in highly non-uniform weld. Thus, highly specific requirements of laser plastic welding pose a restraint on the laser plastic welding market.

Healthcare Industry to Offer Gratifying Opportunities to Manufacturers

  • The demand for a variety of plastic medical devices across continents has witnessed a sharp rise in recent years. This significant rise in demand for plastic medical devices is majorly driven by improving healthcare facilities and rapidly rising healthcare expenditure by individuals. Laser plastic welding machines are predominantly used in the healthcare industry, especially medical device industry, as these devices require clean joints. Furthermore, manufacturers of medical devices preferring laser plastic welding over traditional welding techniques as it provides faultless and excellent surface finishing.
  • Moreover, the surgical nature of laser plastic welding makes it well suited to handle the delicate and precision joining. Owing to such factors, the demand for laser plastic welding systems across the globe is projected to increase during the forecast period. In addition to this, striking penetration of healthcare industry in key regions such as North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific regions is providing gratifying opportunities to laser plastic welding machines manufacturers to maximize its financial revenue.
