In the last few years, laser has emerged as one of the most preferred methods for welding plastics. It provides improved welding quality as the flexibility it offers is second to none. Despite these and several other advantages, the penetration of laser plastic welding is slower than expected in the plastic industry. Nonetheless, the Transparency Market Research’s (TMR’s) forecasts about the laser plastic welding market’s robust growth potentials is indicative of mounting competition it may witness in the coming years. Amidst soaring competition companies such as Han's Laser Technology Industry Group Co., TRUMPF GmbH + Co. KG, Ltd, Emerson Electric Co., LPKF Laser & Electronics AG, Rofin Sinar Technologies Inc., Nippon Avionics Co., Ltd., Jenoptik AG, Leister Technologies AG among others are likely to toy with diverse strategies to buoy growth trends. On the back of this, the global laser plastic welding market is foreseeing a promising future.

In a new study, TMR has pegged the global laser plastic welding market’s valuation at US$758.9 mn in 2016. Reporting a positive CAGR of 8.3%, the overall market is likely to reach US$1,543.2 mn by the end of 2025. Holding the dominant 42% of the global laser plastic welding market, Asia Pacific emerged at fore in 2016. Besides this, TMR forecasts sustainable growth for the market in North America. During the course of the forecast period, Europe is likely to offer lucrative prospects for the market’s growth. Among end-use industries, the application of laser plastic welding is expected to remain high in the automotive sector. In addition, the rising demand from the healthcare industry will enable the market gain impetus in the coming years.
