The current trends in lasers and laser crystals will be addressed. The technological challenges and global market forecast for non-diode laser sales will be presented as well. The present status of lasers, their various applications and the design considerations of a laser system will be discussed, with some future applications which can enjoy the benefit of laser crystals. As an example, we shall present and analyse a special case, where the use of a laser system provides significant advantage over the existing technologies. We shall outline some of the developments in the laser field, required to achieve potential future technological goals.
