LASER World of PHOTONICS – Trade Fair for the Photonics Industry

25th world’s leading trade fair for photonics components, systems and applications

This spring, Munich will once again become the center of the international photonics industry for a few days as the world’s leading trade fair LASER World of PHOTONICS 2022 opens its doors at the Munich Exhibition Center. PolyPhotonics Berlin e.V. will also be present at this year’s trade fair.

The German photonics industry is recovering quickly economically after a decline in sales in the pandemic year 2020 and is optimistic about the future. The industry association SPECTARIS forecasts significant growth of up to 14 percent for 2021 and a significant increase in subsequent years. The global market for photonics has also seen strong growth despite the pandemic. “We are pleased to make an important contribution with LASER World of PHOTONICS 2022, timed appropriately in the spring, to continue the positive trend in the photonics industry,” explains Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy CEO of Messe München.

The trade show had to be postponed in 2021 due to the corona pandemic, but the scientific congress could at least be held in digital format. “The upcoming trade show will once again bring the international trade audience together on site for an intensive exchange about innovations and products, to intensify existing business relationships and to establish new ones,” Pfeiffer said. Project manager Anke Odouli adds: “To this end, we are relying on our detailed protection and hygiene concept, which has already proven itself many times over. “

LASER World of PHOTONICS will also have a broad international presence in 2022. Companies from 30 countries had registered by mid-January. The USA and China are particularly well represented, but a company from Australia has also booked a booth at the trade show for the first time. Market leaders from the photonics sector and major industry-related research institutes have also confirmed their participation, including TRUMPF Laser- und Systemtechnik, Coherent Shared Services, IPG Laser, LASER COMPONENTS Germany, Fraunhofer-Society, Laser 2000, Newport Spectra-Physics, Berlin Partner for Business and Technology and JENOPTIK Optical Systems.In large parts of the economy, innovations are now inconceivable without the contribution of photonics. For example, photonics plays a decisive role in future-proofing vehicles, provides physicians with live transmissions from living cells, optimizes quality controls in industry and enables data transmission from space at the speed of light. The trade show will focus on laser systems for industrial manufacturing, lasers and optoelectronics, optics, sensor technology, measurement and testing technology, and manufacturing technologies for optics.

In 2022, the World of QUANTUM will celebrate its premiere with its own hall dedicated to what is currently probably the most exciting future field of photonics: quantum technology and its diverse potential applications. Messe München is thus creating a platform for networking research, industry and users, discussing the appropriate implementation of current research results in systems and presenting the first examples of applications for this future technology in computing and cryptography, sensor technology and imaging, communication and medicine. Dr. Wilhelm Kaenders, Chairman of the LASER World of PHOTONICS Exhibitor Advisory Board and CEO of TOPTICA Photonics AG: “Just as Messe München discovered the then newly emerging laser applications as the central theme of a new global technology trade fair back in 1973, it is once again on a visionary path today with its focus on the topic of quantum. It is to be expected that Munich will become a central marketplace for the technology of the unfolding century in the years to come. “LASER World of PHOTONICS will be held at the Munich Exhibition Center from April 26 to 29, 2022, and the next World of Photonics Congress will be held together with the next trade show in June 2023.
