Report Overview

The global welding products market size was estimated at USD 13.49 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4% from 2022 to 2030. Factors such as design flexibility, reduction in the overall weight of the buildings and structures, and the ease in modification are projected to promote the use of welding products in construction and industrial application segments. The global construction sector is undergoing limited growth as a consequence of the economic recession caused by the Covid-19 crisis, which has resulted in low investor confidence and a decline in construction activities, as a result, the market has also experienced a catastrophic setback.

China welding products market size, by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The spread of the COVID-19 in China affected the growth of the engineering and construction industries. The increasing costs of construction materials and equipment, along with supply chain disruptions, are the major factors limiting the growth of this industry. However, the use of aerial measurement and 3D modeling technologies increased during the pandemic, which supported the market growth. The construction sector in China is expected to witness high growth over the forecast period, which, in turn, is predicted to drive the market in the economy. With a wide range of welding applications in construction coupled with technological advancements, the development of innovative manufacturing methods is likely to benefit the market growth.

According to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM), in 2020, the automotive sector contributed 9.6% of the total retail sales of consumer goods. The government and several major automobile companies are increasingly investing in the country owing to the growing demand for vehicles.

Technology Insights

The resistance welding technology segment led the market and accounted for more than 27.4% share of the global revenue in 2021. The growing use of resistance welding technology in the automotive industry for various processes such as spot welding, projection welding, and seam welding is likely to promote segmental growth over the forecast period.

Continuous innovations in arc welding technology, such as robotic arc welding, by the key market players, are one of the key factors driving the arc welding market across the globe. The technology is used to weld metals in a wide range of thicknesses with good flexibility. The growing use of the technology across various applications is projected to drive market growth.

Oxy-fuel welding technology is gaining significant growth on account of its growing use in industrial manufacturing applications. The welding equipment and products used in this technology are highly cost-efficient which promotes its implementation in welding fillet, butt, and lap joints with the object thickness up to 5mm.

Other welding technologies include electron beam welding, induction welding, flow welding, electro-slag welding, and laser hybrid welding. These technologies are employed in various applications such as heavy plate fabrication, shipbuilding, switchgear devices, railway tracks, and storage tanks among others.

Product Insights

The stick electrodes product segment led the market and accounted for more than 37.0% share of the global revenue in 2021. The demand for stick electrodes for the welding of a wide range of components is witnessing growth in various application areas on account of their ability to increase the welding strength as well as their high corrosion resistance & tensile strength. The solid wire product segment is projected to register a CAGR of 4.0% in terms of revenue over the forecast period. The flexibility and ruggedness of solid wires are properties that increase their utility in application areas such as house electrical wiring and breadboards that require flexible wires.

Global welding products market share, by product, 2021 (%)

Saw wired fluxes react with the weld pool to provide high-quality metals with desired properties. This promotes its utilization in applications such as exploration platforms, pressure vessels, fabrication of offshore drilling platforms, and post-weld heat treatment. The growing use of saw wire fluxes in the construction of the aforementioned applications is likely to fuel the segment growth. Other welding products such as stainless-steel alloys, MIG wires, metal-cored wires, aluminum MIG, TIG, and thermal spray wires are contributing significantly to the growth of the market. These products are extensively utilized on account of their unique mechanical properties and cost-efficiency.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific region led the market and accounted for over 42.49% share of global revenue in 2021. The expansion of residential, commercial, and industrial sectors due to the sustainable economic growth of countries in the region is expected to fuel construction activities, thereby driving the demand for welding products. The market in the Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit the highest growth for the welding products market on account of the rapid expansion of the automotive industry on account of the highest automobile production. The region is expected to benefit from the presence of rapidly growing economies such as China, India, Indonesia, and Japan.

European countries are initiating efforts to balance their economic trade, which is expected to boost the maritime activities in the region. In addition, the rising tourism sector is also expected to drive demand for recreational marine products, thereby driving the growth of shipbuilding activities in the region. This in turn is likely to augment the growth of welding operations.

The increasing demand for electric cars and hybrid cars on account of shifting consumer preferences towards affordable energy-efficient plug-in cars such as Nissan-leaf, Toyota Prius PHV, and others is expected to drive the automotive industry, which in turn is expected to benefit the market for welding products over the forecast period.
