High-power fiber lasers have become a critical tool for industrial machining and welding, which has helped to drive market value of industrial fiber lasers to well over ~$2B in 2018. Pulsed lasers have also made significant inroad in semiconductor wafer cutting and trimming. There is currently a significant drive to increase the average power of pulsed lasers for higher throughput, typically in the range few hundreds of watts, an area where fiber lasers excel.
