Welding Materials Market, By Type (Electrode & Fillers, Fluxes & Wires, Gases), By Technology (Arc W

Published Date: | Report Code : MT1953097


Welding Materials Market is one of the most important fabrication processes in which different parts of metal or thermoplastic are joined together. The welding process causes the high-temperature fusion of metal parts without melting the base metal. Welding in the form of a joint pool or weld pool provides immense strength to the structure. It also protects the filler materials or melted metal parts from oxidation and contamination. These welded parts exhibit excellent strength, high design flexibility, and longevity, which makes welding materials applicable in almost all major industries, including transportation, automotive, building & construction, marine, power, and oil & gas. The demand for high strength, lightweight, and stiff structures in the aerospace, automotive, and marine industries is rapidly increasing with the development of new designs and changing environmental standards regarding emissions.

Segment Analysis :

On the basis of type, it is segmented into electrodes & fillers, fluxes & wires, and gases. The electrode & filler material segment is most widely used in arc welding and resistance welding. The increase in the automobile production, development of shipbuilding and marine transportation facilities, and rise in government expenditure towards energy, power, and infrastructure projects are most likely to boost the demand for electrode & filler materials.

By technology, it is segregated into arc welding, resistance welding, oxy-fuel welding, and others. Arc welding is more widely used and preferred than its counterparts as it offers several advantages such as high heat concentration, uniformity in the metal deposition, good corrosion resistance, and high impact resistance.

On the basis of end-user, it is classified into automotive & transportation, building & construction, marine, and oil & gas. Welding materials are mostly used in the transportation industry for welding of vehicle body parts, as well as at various other stages of automobile manufacturing. Therefore, the increase in automobile production, along with repair & maintenance activities, has, in turn, propelled the demand for welding materials in the transportation industry. 

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • The growing development of new filler metals so as to improve the purity
  • Its factors such as excellent strength, high design flexibility, and longevity
  • Rising demand from rapidly increasing automotive and construction sectors
