Annual Subscription Plan Description

This annual subscription plan is for clients that want all of the ElectroniCast multiple-client reports for 2016. The Lasers Market Forecast Service provides our clients with five reports (sent electronically) over the course of the year. ElectroniCast releases complete and detailed market forecasts and analysis of selected laser products and their applications.

ElectroniCast market forecast reports are used by leading established and start-up manufacturers, R&D institutes and universities, associations, investment banks & venture capital firms, and other concerns worldwide as an important strategic planning tool for future sales, marketing and manufacturing efforts.

Analyst Inquiry Service: Subscribers are invited to discuss the findings of the market forecasts with the principal analyst of the Laser Market Forecast group at ElectroniCast, via telephone, video web or e-mail Q&A throughout the year.

Information Base for the Market Forecasts

Primary Research The market forecasts studies are based on analysis of information obtained directly by ElectroniCast date. Our analysts perform interviews with authoritative and representative individuals in the laser component and system industry sector, from the standpoint of both suppliers and users of lasers. The interviews were conducted principally with:

  • Engineers, marketing personnel and management at manufacturers of laser systems, modules, crystals/rods, optics and numerous other laser component and accessories
  • Engineers, marketing, purchasing personnel and market planners at major users of laser modules and systems, as well as emerging/ advanced laser technologies

The interviews cover issues of technology, R&D support, pricing, contract size, reliability, documentation, installation/maintenance crafts, standards, supplier competition and other topics. Customers and distributors also are interviewed, to obtain their estimates of quantities received and average prices paid. Customer estimates of historical and expected near term future growth of their application are obtained. Their views of use of new technology products are obtained.

Analysis The analyst then considers customer expectations of near term growth in their application, plus forecasted economic payback of investment, technology trends and changes in government regulations, to derive estimated growth rates of quantity and price of each product subset in each application. These forecasted growth rates are combined with the estimated baseline data to obtain the long-range forecasts at the lowest detailed level of each product and application.

Secondary Research A full review of published information is performed to supplement information obtained through interviews. The following sources are reviewed:

  • Professional technical journals and papers
  • Trade press articles; Technical conference proceedings
  • Product literature; Patents, Company profile and financial information
  • Additional information based on previous ElectroniCast studies
  • Personal knowledge of the research team

It is essential that the market research team have a good and a deep understanding of the technology and of the industry. ElectroniCast members who participated in this report are qualified.

Bottom-up Methodology ElectroniCast forecasts are developed initially at the lowest detail level and then summed to successively higher levels. The background market research focuses on the amount of each type of product for the particular studied product and used in each application in the previous calendar year, as well as the prices paid at the first transaction from the manufacturer. This forms the base year data. ElectroniCast analysts then forecast the growth rates in component quantity use in each application, along with price trends, based on competitive, economic and technology forecast trends, and apply these to derive long term forecasts at the lowest application levels. The usage growth rate forecasts depend heavily on analysis of overall end user trends toward equipment usage and economic payback.

The calculation and analysis data spreadsheet technique is based upon input/output analysis, leveraging the quantitative consumption quantity, price and value of each item in each application at all levels to achieve reasonable quantitative conclusions; this interactive analysis concept, first applied on a major scale by Leonteff, of the US Department of Commerce, in the mid 1950s, was then adopted successfully by analyst/forecasting firms Quantum Science, Gnostic Concepts and (in 1981) by ElectroniCast.
