Laser annealing system is a renovation done over the surfaces of materials or surface heat-temper marking procedure. The heat produced by the temperature of laser beam creates an oxidation method under the surface of the material, initiating a conversion of color on the surface of the metal placed over it. In other terms, laser annealing process is achieved with the help of laser, which heats the surface of the material rapidly and allowing it to cool naturally.

Laser Annealing System Market: Market Dynamics

Initially, laser printing was designed by warming the material in a furnace at very high temperatures for few hours depending upon the materials. However, this had various difficulties such as, hotness hampering the substrate unfavorably and the process consuming a lot of time. Heating the material at lower temperature by laser annealing method heats the outer surface of the material quicker and allows it to cool down naturally. With the help of laser annealing system, the difficulties triggered by heating in a furnace at high temperatures are resolved. This stands to be one of the key driving factor for the growth of global laser annealing systems market.  Laser annealing also finds its usage in the healthcare industry as it is widely being used in tracing different medical devices.

High cost is one of the key restraining factors for laser annealing market. Due to the high cost incurred in laser annealing, small and medium enterprises manufacturers are unable to meet the expenditures of a better quality laser annealing. However there is noticeable modification in the direction of the established or structured organizations working in the semiconductor sector as a considerable portion of the total annealed semiconductors market is supplied by small and medium enterprises.

Laser Annealing System Market: Market Segmentation

The laser annealing system market is categorized on the bases of type of beam, application and geography. Based on type of beam, the market is segmented into multi lens beam and line beam method. Until the recent years Gen8 generation, mainly line beams were been used for the annealing process. These beams uncover the anterior part of a silicon film on a substrate that is made of glass, in order to anneal it. However, due to the development of multi lens lasers, the development of miniscule annealing through multiple lenses is growing. This segment is anticipated to grow substantially in the near future owing to improved process effectiveness as the annealing is completed primarily inside the transistor. Based on industry, the global laser annealing market is divided into automotive, medical, metals and plastics among other industries.
