The global welding consumables market has been segmented by end-use and type. The welding consumables market end-use segments mainly include construction, automotive, aerospace & defense, and marine sectors. Construction and marine applications are likely to retain a significant market share in the global welding consumables market. Particularly due to the growing demand from the other end-use segments, such as the oil and gas industries, manufacturing, and automotive applications, the market is projected to expand over the coming years.
Welding methods have many advantages over traditional technologies such as riveting, which is expected to create a positive image for the demand for welding consumables. Welding is favored because of its durable and relatively pliant joints, low labor costs, and ease of welded part manufacturing. Both of these advantages contribute to increased momentum in welding in industries with different end uses. Subsequently, the tendency towards welding adoption elevated sales of welding consumables worldwide.
Asia-Pacific is expected to show the highest growth rate over the projected period, by virtue of rapid urbanization & industrialization, especially in the emerging economies such as China, India, South Korea, and Southeast Asia. Additionally, government investment and promotion towards renewable energy and increasing foreign direct investments (FDI) in solar, thermal, and wind energy sectors is expected to increase welding consumables market growth over the coming years. However, the environmental impact of welding consumables, customer price sensitivity, sluggish adoption of advanced welding technologies in developing countries, and slow growth of aerospace & defense are expected to be the key market challenges.
The global welding consumables market is competitive in nature. A large number of domestic and international manufacturers are operating in this industry. Some prominent players are Bohler Welding, Hyundai, Lincoln Electric, Air Liquide, ARCON Welding, Denyo, Fronius International, Illinois Tool Work, Kemppi, Kobelco, Panasonic, and Tianjin Bridge Welding Materials Group.
