Dielectric Laser Accelerators (DLAs) have promised GV/m gradients in chip-scale structures with scalable manufacturing. A review of the progress in this field will be presented in an attempt to answer what can be expected from these devices. A summary of critical hurdles overcome and those remaining will also be discussed. DLAs come in several variants, with exemplars discussed here. The capabilities of DLAs already seem to be rather distinct from conventional accelerators both in the time structure of the beams produced as well as the physical scale of the devices. The implications of this new operating regime for accelerators will be considered for light sources, colliders, and non-research applications.
