Typically, laser interferometers are employed in non-contact optical sensing techniques, ultra-precision positioning control, and ultra-precision machining and manufacturing. Machine tables, slides, & axis motions of coordinate measurement devices are calibrated using laser interferometers. The apparatus is portable and offers a very high level of precision and accuracy. Interferometry is the accurate measurement of extremely, small lengths using an optic disturbance.

The laser interferometer is one of the interferometers that uses lasers and electronic controllers to check the rigidity, alignment, and uniformity of machine components as well as to detect incredibly small dimensions and modify slip gauges, among other things. Laser-based interferometers have proliferated in recent years and are widely used in metrology. Due to the unstable harmonics of lasers, physicists have traditionally used them instead than engineers.

The market for laser interferometers is expanding primarily as a result of rising demand for automobiles and rising expenditure in the aerospace and defence sectors. Rapid industrial development also has a significant impact on this market since it makes it easier to evaluate things like machine calibration, monochromaticity, surface topology, and others. In addition, the market is being driven by the growing use of electronics. Therefore, the aforementioned factors are expected to boost the expansion of the laser interferometer sector.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The advent of COVID-19 has had a significant impact on various industries across the globe. The Covid 19 containment measures had a considerable influence on the businesses that manufacture laser interferometers. Many international businesses that sell industrial products are struggling while the COVID-19 issue drags on, including revenue losses and production halts as a result of supply chain disruptions, rising material and production costs, and employee instability. Additionally, because of travel restrictions brought on by lockdown regulations, businesses were unable to find the manpower they needed for their operations. In the near future, the impact of this pandemic on industrial processes will have a negative impact on the market growth for laser interferometers.

Market Growth Factors

Excellent surface measurement precision is provided by laser interferometry, as well as precise measurements for applications in geological topography. It is anticipated that the use of laser interferometers in the field of metrology will lead to specific market developments. The range of interferometers' use in metrology operations is further expanded by their capacity to record nanometer-scale measurements as well as readings over distances of several metres. The use of laser interferometers is crucial in 3D metrology. Thus, it is anticipated that the market for laser interferometers will expand due to the rising demand for 3D metrology across numerous industries.

Robotics Applications Are Expanding in The World

Numerous experts in the field of robotic manufacturing are currently looking into a number of solutions that enable precise robot movement while lowering positioning & alignment errors. The Integrating metrology systems, like joint encoders, force sensors, laser sensors, and laser trackers to continuously measure the robot's current poses, stiffness parameters, and mechanical flaws, is one of the key solutions that has been suggested. The robot's position and consequently its movements are then corrected using a set of compensation parameters.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Laser Interferometer Solutions Are Price Sensitive

It is challenging to achieve the targeted ROI that fits within a business plan because of the setup costs for measurement and calibration tools. Different measurements call for different, pricey measuring equipment. Customers in the measurement ecosystem typically choose affordable, cutting-edge measurement hardware. Engineers as well as manufacturers have been forced to upgrade existing technologies widely as a result of the demand for more advanced specifications and features as well as the growth in the number of applications.

Laser Interferometer Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2021

End User Outlook

On the basis of end-user industry, the laser interferometer market is classified into automotive, aerospace & defense, industrial, life sciences, and electronics manufacturing & telecommunication. The aerospace & defense segment covered a significant revenue share in the laser interferometer market in 2021. The aerospace & defense industry is growing continuously across the globe. The demand for laser interferometer would increase because of the increasing manufacturing of the aircrafts.

Application Outlook

By application, the laser interferometer market is divided into surface topology, engineering, applied science, biomedical and semiconductor detection. In 2021, the semiconductor detection segment generated a promising revenue share in the laser interferometer market. This is because of the fact that metrology as well as inspection of semiconductor wafers during the manufacturing process, a variety of techniques are used in semiconductor inspection, some of which make use of lasers. The interferograms need excellent wavelength and pointing stability, a long coherence length, and good beam quality.

Type Outlook

Based on type, the laser interferometer market is fragmented into homodyne, and heterodyne. The homodyne covered a substantial revenue share in the laser interferometer market in 2021. In homodyne systems, a single frequency laser source is used, producing a single frequency outbound beam. When the optics are stationary, these beams interfere with one another in the detector to produce a beat frequency of zero; however, as the optics move in either direction, the beat frequency increases.

Interferometer Type Outlook

On the basis of interferometer type, the laser interferometer market is segmented into Michelson interferometer, fabry-perot interferometer, fizeau interferometer, mach-zehnder interferometer, sagnac interferometer and Others. In 2021, fabry perot segment procured a promising revenue share in laser interferometer market. Fabry Perot interferometers are used in spectroscopy in a wide variety of ways. To generate very small, very well-defined displacements, either as an external cavity or as a component of a laser, they are used in engineering nanometrology as the cavity in lasers. This is resulting in the market growth in this segment.
