Published on

The welding equipment segment is dominated by arc and resistance welding systems, which accounted for a combined 42 percent of equipment demand in 2010. These will remain the dominant weldingtechniques through the forecast period, in part due to their successful integration with modern automation techniques that improve weld deposit rates and alleviate the shortage of skilled welders.

Welding equipment & consumables to 2015

  1. 1. Welding Equipment & Consumables to 2015Published:October 2011No.Of Pages:129Price:US $ 3900Report SummaryUS demand to rise 6.4%annually through 2015 Total demand for US welding equipment and consumables market isforecast to increase 6.4 percent annually to $7.1 billion in 2015.Gains in this market will bedriven by continued recovery from economic recession experienced between late 2007 and2009 in major manufacturing and construction markets. Growth will also be fueled by theincreasing applications to which various types of welding can be applied. Although arc,resistance and oxyfuel welding dominate the market,emergent welding technologies such aselectron beam, friction-stir, laser,ultrasonic and other welding methods have opened newmarkets and applications in industries such as aerospace,electronics, packaging andothers.Although the most popular welding methods are used in mature market segments,and their demand is subject to the cyclical (and seasonal, in the case of construction) natureof individual markets, the diversity of welding applications mitigates the effects of cyclicalityin any single consuming sector.Arc, resistance weding systems to remain dominantThe welding equipment segment is dominated by arc and resistance welding systems, whichaccounted for a combined 42 percent of equipment demand in 2010. These will remain thedominant weldingtechniques through the forecast period, in part due to their successfulintegration with modern automation techniques that improve weld deposit rates andalleviate the shortage of skilled welders.Browse All Automotive Market Research ReportsConsumables to trackindustry average in growth Welding consumables include electrodes,filler metal andindustrial welding gases used in oxyfuel welding applications and shielding gases usedprimarily in arc welding applications. Consumption of these products is dependent on theamount of oxyfuel and arc welding activity, although arc welding is the dominant marketdriver. Demand for consumables, which will benefit from the economic recovery and theubiquity of arc welding processes, will increase 6.3 percent annually and approach $2.2billion in 2015.Welding electrodes and filler metal dominate the consumablescategory,typically accounting for 69 percent of the total; oxyfuel and shielding gasesaccount for the rest. Solid wire electrodes are the largest product category for electrodesand filler metal, although flux- and metalcored electrodes are the most rapidly growingproducts. Among the gases,oxygen and acetylene are dominant in metal joining and cuttingapplications.Argon is by far the dominant shielding gas, followed by carbon dioxide.Construction to be fastest growing marketThe manufacturing sector comprises the largest

The consumption of welding products by the construction industry will growthe fastest of any enduse industry. Based on recovery from a severe slowdown in 2008 and2009 revitalized construction of structures,pipelines and civic projects will drive demand to$750 million in 2015, or nearly 11 percent of the marke.Study coverageThis new Freedonia industry study,Welding Equipment & Consumables , is priced at $4900.It presents historical demand data (2000, 2005 and 2010) plus forecasts for 2015 and 2020by product and market.
