Global Friction Stir Welding Equipment Market: Introduction

  • Friction stir welding (FSW) is a solid-state joining procedure. This process is used for joining two confronting work pieces, without melting the work piece material.
  • Friction generates heat between the rotating device and the work piece material and it creates a softened area near the FSW tool. Then, it mechanically intermixes the two metal work pieces.
  • Friction stir welding equipment are primarily used on created or expelled aluminum and especially for structures that need extremely high welding quality

Global Friction Stir Welding Equipment Market: Dynamics

  • Increasing use of friction stir welding equipment in the industrial sector has augmented the friction stir welding equipment market
  • The automotive industry is one of the major end-users of friction stir welding equipment. With the increasing demand for vehicles across the world, the automotive industry is extensively adopting friction stir welding equipment for use in the aluminum welding process. This process imparts improved mechanical features to the end-product such as improved process strength, obstruction to rigidity and weariness. 
  • Friction stir welding equipment offer several other advantages such as low impact on the environment, operating cost advantages, and limited impact on health. This drives the use of friction stir welding equipment in various joining and material-processing applications.
  • However, lack of skilled and qualified workforce and improper training of users are expected to hamper the global friction stir welding equipment market in the next few years
  • Growth of downstream industries and uncertainties in the global economy are expected to limit the consumption of friction stir welding equipment in the near future, thereby hampering the global market in the next few years
