The required laser parameters for recently proposed gamma-gamma collider Higgs factories are presented and reviewed in the context of new developments in high average and peak power fibre laser technology. A possible laser architecture based on fibres is proposed and some issues surrounding high average power frequency conversion to the wavelengths required for a gamma collider are discussed.
