The industrial upstream mainly engages laser materials and supporting components
It includes: laser crystal, laser gas, laser lamp, laser power supply, laser processing coating, laser components, laser supporting software and etc.
The industrial midstream mainly engages various laser sources and supporting equipment.
It includes: solid-state lasers, semiconductor lasers, fiber lasers, gas lasers, liquid lasers, other lasers, laser diodes, numerical control equipment, computers, equipment and packaging, electron-mechanical products, instrumentation, laser modules and etc.
Closest to everyday life, the industrial downstream mainly engages laser application products, consumer products, instruments and etc.
It includes: laser processing, optical communication, optical storage, laser medical treatment, laser marking, laser phototypesetting and printing, laser measurement, laser display, laser weapon. Number of enterprises at downstream is the largest.
Laser industry in China is concentrated in four regions. Optical valley at Wuhan is one large-scale center of photo-voltaic industry cluster where over 200 famous domestic laser enterprises are agglomerated. It has a complete industrial chain of lase and attracts many domestic experts and technical personnel in same field. The optical valley at Wuhan has built national specialized and large-scale production and research base, occupying the domestic leading position in the laser technology.
The Pearl River Delta region is another major congregation zone for China's laser industry. The related industries are mainly distributed in Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Dongguan, and Foshan, among which Shenzhen is the center of the Pearl River Delta laser industrial cluster. Shenzhen has many well-known enterprises in the industry, and the laser application fields involved are very extensive. In terms of market operation, Shenzhen has an unmatched advantage than central China. Since 2014, the output value of Shenzhen laser industry has surpassed that of Wuhan, becoming the top place and export of Shenzhen laser industry accounts for more than 30% of overall national export of laser products.
The Yangtze River Delta region is one of the main gathering belts of laser industry in China where laser industry chain is mature already. The Yangtze River Delta laser industry is mainly distributed in Shanghai, Nanjing, Wenzhou, Suzhou, Ningbo and other places. It has many manufacturing workshops for laser components, laser sources and laser application equipment.
Following Central China and the Pearl River Delta, the Bohai rim region is another important place for the laser industry. R & D strength in that region is relatively strong as the market represented by Beijing has gathered a large number of related companies in the IT and communications industries, pumping up the demand for laser products. The vigorous market demand has driven the development of laser industry in this region. Overall, laser companies in the Bohai Rim region are mainly concentrated in Beijing, Tianjin, Shenyang, Dalian and other cities.
