Demand Shortage and Difficulty in Staff Maintenance Inhibit Market Growth

The welding torch and wear parts market is estimated to surge at a sluggish CAGR of ~3% during the assessment period, as fragmented nature of the market has intensified the competition. The increased supply of welding torch and wear parts has led to a demand shortage. Challenges such as lack of skilled workers and difficulties in staff maintenance are also important factors for low demand. Thus, OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) are offsetting these disadvantages by diversifying their supply for atomic hydrogen welding, TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding, and other applications.

OEMs in the welding torch and wear parts market are increasing their production capabilities of accelerator pedals and introducing fingertip control on the torch to simplify TIG welding.

They are introducing lightweight torches that are balanced and reduce wrist loading. Innovative materials such as silicon rubber are being used to adhere to welding safety standards.

Growing Availability of Purpose-built Plasma Equipment Drives Global Market

Apart from MIG and TIG equipment, OEMs in the welding torch and wear parts market are tapping into incremental opportunities with plasma welding torches. For instance, EWM AG— a specialist in welding technology, is increasing its product portfolio in plasma torch series to meet requirements of its end users. These torches are being preferred for delicate welding tasks on thin metal sheets. Plasma torches are even used for thick metal sheets to enable safe and stable welding.

Microplasma, medium current plasma, and keyhole plasma are different operating modes that are gaining importance in the welding torch and wear parts market. The increasing availability of purpose-built plasma equipment is acting as a key driver for the market.

Robust MAG Torches Deploy Premium Performance and Quality Welds in Automotive Industry

Unmatched ergonomics and lightweight attributes are being preferred in MAG (Metal Active Gas) welding torches. Durable and high quality MIG/MAG and TIG torches are the latest addition to voestalpine AG’s product portfolio that are easy to handle and deploy precision welding. In order to gain a competitive edge over other OEMs, manufacturers in the welding torch and wear parts market should increase their research expenditure and collaborate with think tanks and engineers to innovate in robust and durable welding torches.

Premium performance and high quality welds with the help of improved MAG welding torches are being made commonplace for use in demanding applications in ever-growing industries such as automotive, construction, and heavy equipment manufacturing.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Relaxations in plant closures are anticipated to draw an influx of new work, as OEMs in the welding torch and wear parts market scramble to maintain productivity at manufacturing facilities. Clean processes and flexibility in TIG welding are acting as a key driver for market expansion. However, disadvantages such as expensive processing and poor gas coverage are causing an impediment to the growth of the welding torch and wear parts market. Hence, manufacturers should increase their research spending and collaborate with engineers to introduce improved ergonomics in TIG welding torches. They should offset the disadvantages of TIG welding with the flexibility to choose precise amperage for welding tasks and increased control over the heat produced. This will help companies to gain a competitive edge in the welding torch and wear parts market.

Welding Torch and Wear Parts Market: Overview

  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest research report on the global welding torch and wear parts market for the historical period 2018–2019 and the forecast period 2020–2030, rising demand from the automotive industry is expected to boost the global welding torch and wear parts market during the forecast period
  • In terms of revenue, the global welding torch and wear parts market is projected to exceed value of US$ 7.4 Bn by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of ~4% during the forecast period

Growth in Number of Vehicles: A Key Driver of Welding Torch and Wear Parts Market

  • The welding torch and wear parts market is experiencing exponential growth in the last couple of years, owing to rise in demand for passenger and commercial vehicles. Increase in disposable income and growing road connectivity are prime factors responsible for the rising demand for four-wheeler and two-wheeler vehicles. In the international automotive industry, in 2019, passenger car production experienced growth of 2.4% from the previous year. This is anticipated to boost the welding torch and wear parts market to a significant extent.
  • Additionally, as per the data published by International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, total commercial vehicle production worldwide stood at 25 million units, of which, the U.S. accounted for a highest share of ~33% followed by China with 17% in 2019. Thus, the demand for welding torches and wear parts is anticipated to grow with the rising number of passenger and commercial vehicles worldwide, thereby leading to the expansion of the welding torch and wear parts market during the forecast period.         

Expansion of Construction and Manufacturing Industries to Drive Welding Torch and Wear Parts Market

  • Construction and manufacturing industries are experiencing unprecedented growth. Rapid urbanization and industrialization in developing countries are factors leading to the growth of construction projects, which, in turn, is expected to fuel the expansion of the welding torch and wear parts market.
  • Welding torches used by skilled operators are usually designed according to pre-defined mandates and a set of compliance rules to ensure that the joints are strong and immune to jostling and rust. Ranging from metal active gas to submerged arc to manual metal arc, various welding processes are used at construction sites around the world to serve unique needs. All these factors are anticipated to boost the demand for welding torch and wear parts.

Unskilled Labor: A Restraining Factor of Market

  • One of the major issues hindering growth of the welding torch and wear parts market is the abundant unskilled labor. Problems can occur in the event of lack of proper welding training. Welders should have proper knowledge of reducing the welding current and arc length to avoid spatter, along with increasing the torch-to-plate angle. Welders should also ensure that welding torches have no leaks and make sure the torch to plate angle is the correct size to avoid porosity. Thus, lack of skills is anticipated to hamper the growth of the welding torch and wear parts market.
