    The welding materials market is projected to reach USD 15.80 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2016 to 2021. The key factor propelling the growth of the welding materials market is the increasing demand for welding materials from the transportation and building & construction industries.

    Major end-use industries in the welding materials market include transportation, building & construction, heavy industries, and others. In the transportation industry, welding materials are used in the welding of vehicle body parts, and at various others stages of automobile manufacturing. Therefore, increase in automobile production, along with repair & maintenance activities, is likely to propel the demand for welding materials in the transportation industry.

    Based on type, the welding materials market has been segmented into electrodes & fillers, fluxes & wires, and gases (that include oxy-fuel gases and shielding gases). The electrode & filler materials segment accounted for the largest share of the welding materials market in 2015. Electrodes & fluxes are widely used materials in arc welding and resistance welding. Increase in automobile production, development of shipbuilding and marine transportation facilities, and rise in government expenditure towards energy, power, and infrastructure projects are likely to boost the demand for electrode & filler materials.

    Based on technology, the welding materials market has been segmented into arc welding, resistance welding, oxy-fuel welding, and others. Arc welding offers several advantages such as high heat concentration, uniformity in metal deposition, good corrosion resistance, and high impact resistance. Owing to these advantages, arc welding is considered as the most prominent welding process among other welding technologies. This process is mainly utilized in varied end-use industries, such as automotive, heavy industries, and building & construction.

    The welding materials market in the Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021. China and India have witnessed economic growth, owing to increased construction activities and investments made in the expansion or upgrade of manufacturing facilities. Moreover, initiatives undertaken by various governments worldwide to support growth in the manufacturing sector will propel the demand for welding materials in the Asia-Pacific region.

    Welding Materials Market

    Estimating the future demand for welding materials is a prime challenge due to economic slowdown in varied regions worldwide. North America and Europe have still not recovered completely from the economic crisis, which, in turn, has affected the demand for welding materials in major end-use industries in these regions.

    Key companies operating in the welding materials market include Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. (U.S.), The Linde Group (Germany), Praxair Incorporated (U.S.), Colfax Corporation (U.S.), Air Liquide S.A. (France), Ador Welding Limited (India), Illinois Tool Works Inc. (U.S.), Lincoln Electric Holdings, Inc. (U.S.), and Tianjin Bridge Welding Materials Group Co., Ltd. (China). These players have a wide market reach with established distribution network, and are investing more on research & development activities. They also have strong technical and market development capabilities, which enable them to upgrade their existing products for new applications.
