Industrial Laser Shipments Hold Steady in 2003

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Level with the previous year, 2003 shipments of industrial laser equipment and systems within North America together with US exports totaled $422 million, according to a report from the Laser Systems Product Group of the Association for Manufacturing Technology. As revealed by the 43 companies surveyed, shipments within North America totaled $316.1 million, while exports amounted to $105.9 million.
The figures for CO2 laser systems and Nd:YAG lasers remained flat, compared with 2002, and cutting applications accounted for nearly 55 percent of dispatches. Slightly more than half of the lasers sent out were CO2 types, and three-quarters of the total shipments were designated as systems. Statistics are based on data received from companies that participated in both the 2002 and '03 surveys.
