Soldering Iron Market: Introduction
- Soldering iron is a hand tool used for soldering. It provides heat to metal solders so that it can flow into the joint between two workpieces. Soldering iron consists of a copper tip and a handle. Heating is often achieved electrically, by passing electric current through a resistive heating element.
- Soldering iron is commonly used for fittings, repairs, and specific production work in electronic assembly. These days, simple soldering iron is not commonly used like earlier.
Growing Manufacturing Sector: A Key Driver
- Key factors driving the growth of the soldering iron market include increase in investment in manufacturing facilities and initiatives taken by governments of emerging economies to attract foreign investments. Moreover, rapid growth in automotive and consumer electronics industries is likely to drive the demand for soldering iron in the near future. The boom in e-commerce has created lucrative opportunities for producers and suppliers of soldering iron. Manufacturers and distributors of soldering iron are focusing on selling their products through various e-commerce portals in order to cater to a wide base of customers across the globe.
Lack of Adoption of Advanced Techniques: A Key Restraint
- Slow adoption of advanced soldering processes in emerging economies and large number of local players offering soldering iron at comparatively low prices are some of the major factors anticipated to hamper the soldering iron market in the next few years. Worldwide lockdowns due to COVID-19 has affected the growth of smaller and medium sized engineereing and commercial service businesses. This also is a restraint to the growth of the soldering iron market.
