In this article the author discusses the strength and timing of the recovery in the industrial laser market which was affected by severe recession in 2010. He reveals how the solid-state and fiber laser suppliers increases the growth of the business sector and set records for revenue, bookings and profitability. He is optimistic that the laser industry will experience a good decade of growth as he projects a very active market for carbon dioxide and fiber laser metal products.
