Paper Abstract

The total value of all lasers sold during 1986 in the non-Communist world will exceed US $600 million. This paper examines these sales and categorizes them according to application and according to type of laser. The results are presented both in terms of numbers of lasers sold, and in terms of the value of those lasers. The data are based on extensive interviews with laser manufacturers and laser users.
