Arc Welding Technology to Lead Welding Products Market
Key technology segments of welding products include arc welding, resistant welding, oxy-fuel welding and laser beam welding. The versatility of arc welding technique plays a key role in its overall appeal to end-users, thereby challenging the market share of other welding technology segments. Arc welding accounted for more than 40% of the global welding products market in 2018.
Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), gas metal arc welding (GMAW) also known as metal inert gas (MIG) or metal active gas (MAG) welding, and gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW welding) are the commonly used arc welding techniques.
Stick Electrodes to Dominate Welding Products Market
Welding consumables account for larger share of the global welding products market. Electrodes and filler metals are the key consumables used in different welding processes. Molten melt tends to spill out during the process of out-of-position welding. Electrode helps avoid the spill through fast freezing deposit. Stick electrodes are commonly used in the shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) process. Solid wires accounted for the second largest market share in the welding consumables market in 2018. The use of solid wires has been growing with increase in the use of high-performance alloys in these wires.
Asia Pacific Dominates Welding Products Market
Growth of the Asia Pacific is attributed to demand for arc welding in the numerous industries including building and construction, automobile, and manufacturing. Presence of numerous manufacturing firms across emerging countries including India and China is expected to fuel demand for welding products market. China, Japan, and India were key contributors to the welding products market in Asia Pacific in 2018. Small welding consumable suppliers are mushrooming in China, due to rise in demand for welding products in building & construction and automobile application segments.
