Welding equipment and consumables are essential tools and materials for joining two or more pieces of metal or thermoplastic together. The global welding equipment and consumables market has been growing steadily over the years, driven by the increasing demand for welding applications in several industries such as automotive, construction, and manufacturing. The market is driven by the growing demand for welding automation technology, the rise in construction and infrastructure development activities, and the increasing use of welding in the automotive and transportation industries. Also, increasing demand for welding consumables in the construction, automotive, and shipbuilding industries, as well as a trend towards using advanced welding consumables that offer higher efficiency and lower emissions, are growing. The global welding equipment and consumables market is expected to continue growing in the coming years, driven by the increasing demand for welding automation technology, infrastructure development, and the use of advanced welding consumables. Global weld consumables demand has risen dramatically in the last year as a result of technological advancements and the need for low-cost, long-lasting materials for a wide range of industrial applications, with the automobile and transportation sectors accounting for the lion's share. The market for global welding consumables is expanding at a steady rate, driven along by the widespread adoption of marine/shipbuilding and general fabrication across industries to improve the manufacturing process. According to the research report, "Global Welding Equipment & Consumables Market Research Report, 2023–28,", published by Actual Market Research, the market is anticipated to reach USD 36.15 billion by 2028, with a significant CAGR of 4.85% from USD 27.36 billion in 2022. The welding equipment and consumables market is expected to experience steady growth in the coming years due to the increasing demand for welding in various industries such as construction, automotive, and aerospace. The market is also being driven by the rise in infrastructure development and government initiatives aimed at boosting the manufacturing sector. In addition, the growing demand for advanced welding technologies such as laser and ultrasonic welding is expected to boost the market further. Furthermore, the adoption of automation and robotics in welding processes is expected to increase, leading to higher efficiency, productivity, and quality. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to be the fastest-growing market for welding equipment and consumables due to the increasing demand from emerging economies such as India and China. The growth of the automotive and construction industries in this region is also expected to contribute to the market's growth. Based on the report, the market is segmented into equipment and consumables. Among them, the welding consumables segment is leading the market in 2022. Welding consumables refer to the materials that are used to join two metal parts during the welding process. These materials include welding wires, electrodes, fluxes, and shielding gases, among others. Welding consumables are dominating the market because they are an essential component in the welding process. Welding consumables are used in various welding techniques such as MIG, TIG, and stick welding, among others. They play a critical role in the quality of the welding joint and the overall efficiency of the welding process. In addition, the demand for welding consumables is increasing due to the growth of end-use industries such as construction, automotive, and aerospace. As these industries continue to grow, the demand for welding consumables is also expected to increase. Furthermore, technological advancements in welding consumables are driving the growth of the market. For instance, the development of advanced welding consumables with improved properties such as higher strength, improved corrosion resistance, and better weld ability has increased the demand for these materials. Arc welding is one of the leading welding technologies in the global market for welding equipment and consumables. Arc welding is a versatile welding process that can be used for a wide range of applications and materials, making it a popular choice in various industries such as automotive, construction, and aerospace. It is a relatively simple and cost-effective welding process, which makes it accessible to a wide range of users, from small businesses to large corporations. Arc welding equipment and consumables are widely available from a variety of suppliers, which helps to keep costs down and makes it easy for businesses to source the materials they need. Arc welding is a well-established technology with a long history of use, which has helped to build trust and confidence among users. This has contributed to its continued popularity and dominance in the global welding equipment and consumables market. Covid-19 Impacts: The demand for welding equipment, accessories, and consumables also decreased, as a majority of the demand is linked to the end-use industries, which are also facing difficulties operating during the pandemic. Many construction projects and activities, including government infrastructure projects that were initially running, came to a complete halt due to the imposition of lockdowns. The construction industry, like many others, is labour-intensive. The widespread panic caused by mass unemployment in the construction industry drove workers back to their homes. Even after several countries eased restrictions, construction companies are working with reduced finances, labour, and working hours, which will further delay project completion. The impact of the construction industry slowdown was also felt by the welding equipment, accessories, and consumables industries. Aside from plant closures, the cancellation of several projects in the commercial and industrial construction sectors reduced demand for welding equipment, accessories, and consumables in 2020. COVID-19's negative impact on the automotive industry also had an adverse effect on the market for welding equipment, accessories, and consumables. The disruption in Chinese parts exports, the closure of assembly plants in the United States, and large-scale manufacturing interruptions across Europe all had a significant impact on the industry. This put additional strain on an industry that was already dealing with a drop in global demand. Recent Developments: • October 2022: Lincoln Electric Holdings, Inc. disclosed that it had finalized an agreement to purchase Fori Automation, Inc.
