In addition to that, companies operating in the welding and consumables market are investing heavily in research and development to develop new and innovative products. This is expanding the market by creating new opportunities for growth. Based on the report, the market is segmented into two types, including equipment and consumables. Among them, welding equipment is leading the market in 2022 with over 50% market share. Welding equipment, especially larger pieces of equipment like welding machines and robotic systems, typically have a longer lifespan than consumables like welding electrodes and wires. This means that the replacement demand for welding equipment is generally lower than that of welding consumables, which need to be replaced more frequently. They are typically more expensive than welding consumables, which can deter some companies from investing in new equipment. However, once the equipment is purchased, it generally lasts longer and requires less on-going investment than consumables, making it a more attractive long-term investment for some companies. Welding equipment is often customised to suit specific welding applications and industry requirements, which can be more difficult to achieve with welding consumables. This level of customization can result in higher equipment sales as companies seek out specialised welding solutions. There have been significant advancements in welding equipment technology in recent years, such as the development of digital welding systems, automation technology, and improved welding processes. This has led to a greater demand for new and advanced welding equipment among North American industries, resulting in higher sales. According to the report, the market is segmented into three equipment types, including electrodes and filler metal equipment, oxy-fuel gas equipment, and other equipment. Among them, electrodes and filler metal equipment are leading the market with higher revenue generation in 2022. This category includes stick electrodes, flux-cored wires, solid wires, and other filler metals. In North America, this category has a significant market share as it is used across various industries like construction, automotive, and shipbuilding. However, oxy-fuel gas equipment includes gas welding and cutting equipment such as regulators, torches, and tips. Oxy-fuel gas equipment has the second largest market share in North America compared to other welding processes due to its limited application range. Based on the technology, arc welding will emerge as the largest technology segment in 2022. The key reason driving this technology segment is the high penetration of the technology due to its ease of use across the building and construction and automotive industries. However, in addition to welding thin metal sheets, small pipes, and tubes, oxy-fuel technology is widely used for repair work. The main benefit of oxy-fuel welding technology is that the welder can control the heat input and temperature regardless of the amount of filler metal used. This technology is widely used in straightening, bending, surfacing, brazing, braze welding, and other related operations, which will drive the growth of this technology segment. The use of robots and automation in welding is becoming increasingly common in North America, as it can improve efficiency, reduce labour costs, and improve safety. The FABTECH trade show, held annually in North America, is one of the largest welding and metalworking events in the world, attracting thousands of exhibitors and attendees from around the globe. The North American market is anticipated to showcase substantial growth in the forecast period. OEMs are implementing technologies such as resistance, oxy-fuel, ultrasonic, and stir welding techniques, as well as the Internet of Things (IoT) across industries, to supplement the growth of the welding consumables market. Furthermore, governments are enacting new industrial policies and investment plans in response to the opportunities associated with the new industrial revolutions, such as cross-border and foreign direct investment (FDI). As a result, welding consumable manufacturers will have numerous opportunities in the near future. The industry's players are focusing on meeting the needs of their consumers in every way possible, which allows them to offer quality products, which in turn stimulates the growth of this sector. Adoption of innovative technologies and products is expected to support the growing adoption of welding equipment, accessories, and consumables. In terms of welding consumables, the market is typically segmented based on the type of welding process, including stick electrodes, solid wires, flux-cored wires, SAW wires and fluxes, and others. The consumables market share varies by process, with solid wires and stick electrodes being the most widely used in North America. According to the report, the market is categorised into three major countries, including the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Among them, the United States is expected to dominate the market by the next time period.
