What are Key Growth Drivers of U.S. Welding Consumables Market?

  • Rapid expansion of end-use industries such as construction, manufacturing, automotive & transportation, oil & gas, and power generation is anticipated to drive the welding consumables market. Increase in construction of buildings with unique designs coupled with new construction techniques is anticipated to boost the welding consumables market.
  • Evolving automobile designs coupled with the addition of new safety features in them is offering great opportunity to new welding techniques, thereby fueling the welding consumables market.
  • Consumption of steel has been the major driving factor of the U.S. economy. After trade restrictions were imposed in the U.S., there was a meaningful decline observed in steel imports to lowest level since 2011, this helped in increasing the domestic production, thereby benefitting to U.S. steel mills. Construction and automotive industries are the top consumers of steel in the U.S.
  • The per capita consumption of steel has increased gradually in the country over the years due to implementation of sustainable green technologies, especially in the key downstream markets of steel. Building & construction, automotive, energy, and equipment & machinery were some of the major downstream markets that were revived owing to the implementation of green technology.
  • Thus, growth in steel consumption is estimated to create a significant demand for welding consumables during the forecast period. Welding consumables such as flux-cored wires, stick electrodes, and SAW flux and wires are key materials required for fabrication of steel components. One ton of steel approximately requires 5 kg of welding materials; hence, rise in steel usage is projected to positively impact the demand for welding consumables.
