As president of IQE, a global supplier of epitaxial wafers and substrates, president
of EPIC, and member of the Photonics21 Board of Stakeholders, Drew Nelson has a
unique perspective on photonics markets, policies for technology development, and strategies for mobilizing government and corporate resources. He will speak about Photonics21 and EPIC, along with the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 funding plans and its Key Enabling Technologies (KETs). Dr. Nelson is a member of a high-level industry group that advises the European Commission on implementing KETs, which are seen as essential for Europe to regain and maintain a global leadership position. The European Commission has identified the KETs as nanotechnology, micro-/nanoelectronics, industrial biotechnology, advanced materials, photonics, and advanced manufacturing technologies. Dr. Nelson will discuss what they mean for policy and investment decisions in Europe—and for everyone interested in technology trends and opportunities in photonics.
The Global Laser Marketplace
Senior Analyst, Lasers & LED Lighting
Strategies Unlimited (Mountain View, CA)
Sales of laser products and systems for materials processing, communications, and research remain strong, with some application sectors and regions of the world growing faster and others feeling the effects of government spending cuts and an economic slowdown. This session will help us understand the macroeconomic forces at work, supplier trends, and technology developments. It will provide a global market review and forecast of laser revenues by product and application, including industrial lasers and applications, communications, lithography, defense and security, and medical, and look ahead with both market insights and sales estimates.
THE LASERS & PHOTONICS MARKETPLACE SEMINAR is the only event anywhere in the world that focuses on the entire laser marketplace. It provides a comprehensive market perspective that is unobtainable elsewhere, with market data segmented by applications and laser technology from three of the photonics industry's leading resources: Laser Focus World, which delivers global coverage of the entire photonics industry;Industrial Laser Solutions, a primary source of information on industrial laser materials processing; and Strategies Unlimited, the world’s foremost photonics market research company.
