The welding industry in India comprises various large, medium and small companies that manufacture welding consumables. Large international players such as Lincoln Electric Company Pvt Ltd, ESAB India Limited, and Voestalpine AG (Bohler Welding Group India Pvt. Ltd.) compete with various medium and small companies based in India to provide services to end-user industries. Demand for welding consumables is directly proportional to steel production in the country. End-use industries such as transportation, building & construction, oil & gas, and power are likely to drive the welding consumables market in India in the near future. However, factors such as inconsistent supply of quality raw materials, shortage of skilled labor and competition from international companies may hamper market growth during the forecast period.


Welding stick electrodes dominated the welding consumables market in India with more than 45% share in 2013. Stick electrodes are primarily used in manual welding and are a low cost alternative to other types of welding consumables products. However, demand for wires and fluxes are anticipated to rise significantly during the forecast period due to their efficient performance. Factors such as lower wastage, suitability for automatic welding systems and  outdoor work, higher productivity and wide usage among different welding technologies are likely to lead to increasing preference for solid and flux cored wires. The SAW wires and fluxes segment is projected to witness moderate growth, accounting for more than 7% share of the market in 2020. In terms of revenue, flux cored wires is anticipated to be the fastest growing product segment during the forecast period. 



Growth in end-use industries (including transportation, and building & construction) is estimated to be the key factor driving the welding consumables market in India. Furthermore, increase in investments in energy and oil & gas sectors is anticipated to boost the welding consumables market in India. Automobile and transportation sector witnessed the largest application of welding consumables with more than 25% share in 2013. Power sector is likely to be the fastest growing segment, expanding at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period from 2014 to 2020. Other applications such as wear plates and marine applications are projected to grow moderately in the next few years.


The welding consumables market in India is moderately fragmented, as the top six players accounted for approximately 30% share of the market in 2013. Market leaders such as ESAB, Lincoln Electric, Ador Welding Ltd, and Voestalpine AG have strong presence in the welding consumables market in India. The welding industry in India comprises organized and unorganized companies. ESAB dominated the welding consumables market in the country in 2013. Bohler Welding Group India Pvt. Ltd. and Lincoln Electric followed ESAB in 2013. Additionally, many small players operate in the unorganized sector of the market.
