Low-Cost Chinese Manufacturers Have Intensified Competition in Laser Engraving Machine Market

SkyQuest’s analysis shows that the laser engraving machine industry is highly fragmented, with more than 1,000 manufacturers. The top 10 manufacturers account for only 20% of industry sales. SkyQuest believes that consolidation is likely to occur in the laser engraving machine market in the coming years, as companies look to gain scale and improve profitability. The fragmentation has allowed laser engraving machine manufacturers to compete on price, which has driven down prices and made the machines more affordable for consumers. The industry is also highly competitive, with new companies constantly entering the market. This competition has led to innovation and new features being added to laser engraving machines, making them better and more user-friendly.

The laser engraving machine market is characterized by low barriers to entry and exit. There are a large number of manufacturers, and many of them are small companies. The industry is also quite fragmented geographically. The main drivers of demand for laser engraving machines are the semiconductor and electronics industries, which use them for etching and marking purposes. Other important end markets include the medical device industry, the automotive industry and the jewelry industry.

SkyQuest attributes the high degree of fragmentation in the market to the presence of many low-cost Chinese manufacturers. These manufacturers have been able to undercut their Western counterparts on price, making it difficult for them to compete. The report also found that there is a wide range in profitability among companies in the industry. The most profitable companies are those that have been able to differentiate themselves through innovation and branding.

India is the Second Largest Exporter in Laser Engraving Machine Market

As per a recent analysis by SkyQuest, India is the second largest exporter of laser engraving machines in the world. The report states that the country exported USD 130 million worth of laser engraving machines in 2021, a growth of 15% over the previous year. The analysis attributes this growth to the booming e-commerce industry in India, which has led to an increased demand for personalized and customized products. It also cites the growing popularity of laser engraving among small and medium enterprises (SMEs) as a key factor driving exports.

According to the report, Chinese manufacturers continue to dominate the global laser engraving machine market, with a share of nearly 60%. However, Indian manufacturers are steadily gaining ground, with a number of companies such as Trotec and Epilog establishing a strong presence in the country. Looking ahead, the analyst expects India to maintain its position as a leading exporter of laser engraving machines in the coming years.

The main reasons for this growth are due to the low cost of production in India and the growing demand for these machines in developed markets such as the United States and Europe. Indian manufacturers in the global laser engraving machine market are able to produce high-quality laser engraving machines at a fraction of the cost of their Western counterparts. However, India export most of its product to United Arab Emirates, Bangladesh and Austria. This enables them to sell their products at a competitive price, which is driving growth in exports.
