Flux and filler metals broadly constitute what are known as welding consumables. Welding consumables melt while joining two metals to help form a strong joint and protect molten weld from atmospheric containments. Welding consumables are mainly used in arc welding and oxy-fuel welding process. In arc welding technology, consumables are widely used in shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), gas metal arc welding (GMAW), flux-cored arc welding (FCAW), and submerged arc welding (SAW). Moreover, shielded gases are primarily used in oxy-fuel welding, gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), and gas metal arc welding (GMAW). The global welding consumables market is estimated to be valued at US$ 11,835.8 Mn by 2016 end and expand at a CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period.
Drivers and Trends
Growth in the construction industry, especially in emerging economies such as China and India, is expected to be the key factor driving demand for welding consumables. Industrialisation and rapid urbanisation in developing countries are factors leading to the rise in construction projects, which in turn is expected to result in high demand for welding consumables. Rapid growth in the automobile and construction industry is the primary factor driving growth of the global welding consumables market. Growth of the global welding products and consumables market is expected to be fuelled by increasing number of end-use applications, in which different types of welding techniques can be used. Slow adoption of advanced welding technologies in developing countries such as China and India are the major restraints for growth of the welding consumables and techniques market in APEJ.
Increasing need for welding automation technology in fabrication is expected to be one of the major trends fuelling growth of the global welding consumable and technique market in the coming years. In developed countries, demand for welding automation technology for fabrication and manufacturing purposes is increasing owing to increasing shortage of skilled labour.
