Palo Alto, CA, United States, 2006/12/12 - The Automation & Process Control group at Frost & Sullivan will host an analyst briefing teleconference on Tuesday, December 12, 2006 at 11 a.m. EST.
The laser industry is a technology driven space, with cost being an ultimate factor impacting the customer choice. Though the applications associated with laser machine and the quality of output achieved on a laser machine has made significant progress over the recent past, the pricing factor associated with the investment, and also the operational costs have been a challenge to laser manufacturers. The Research & Development (R&D) spending in this industry is phenomenal, with the participants focusing on improving the cost-performance ratio. The cost aspect is closely followed by additional factors such as the efficiency, downtime and footprint associated with the machine. These key factors act as a major source of differentiation in the industry. Intense rivalry has been a marked attribute, owing to which there are low levels of co-operation amongst industry participants to solve the issues associated with the laser industry. This capital intensive market has been facing a long continuing challenge associated with the low levels of awareness associated with the cost versus benefit scenario associated with the laser machine usage.
Highlights of the briefing include: drivers, restraints and challenges for the market, market forecast, trends by geographies and strategies for growth.
