According to the report, the global welding products market is primarily driven by the booming construction industry. Another end-use industry that has ramped up its demand for welding products is the growing automotive industry. Both construction and automotive industries are rapidly expanding in developing economies, giving rise to a bumper growth rate for the global welding products market in the coming years. Both industries make extensive use of welding products. The global welding products market is also expected to witness growth in demand from the energy sector, specifically from wind energy companies. Wind energy devices require a medium-to-large amount of welding activity.
The report also explains the various restraining factors acting on the global welding products market, including the lack of skilled labor that will be incurred in a rapidly expanding industry. This, according to the report, will hold true especially for developed nations, consequently hampering the global welding products market’s overall growth rate. The global welding products market is also hindered by high labor costs, which have reduced the profit margins in developed nations.
On the basis of welding techniques, the global welding products market was dominated by arc welding, which held a share of almost 40.0% in 2013. This segment was followed by resistance welding and laser beam welding. The largest end user in the global welding products market for 2013 was the building and constructions industry, with a market share of 17.0%.
Asia Pacific is the leading regional segment of the global welding products market. It held 40% of the global welding products market in 2013 and is expected to continue to dominate the market. North America and Rest of the World collectively held 32.0% of the market in 2013. Europe, on the other hand, showed signs of a declining welding products market, owing to instability in the supply-demand chain and a recovering economy.
The most prominent players in the global welding products market are Illinois Tool Works, ESAB, and Lincoln Electric. The three companies dominate the global welding products market in terms of range and sales figures of welding products. All three companies possess widespread global distribution channels.
