This is further expected to boost the growth of the welding equipment market over the forecast period. Most types of welding equipment available in the market support a variety of non-metallic and metallic parts in various manufacturing industries, offering an efficient method for fusing materials. Technological advancements and the increased use of advanced equipment in the construction and manufacturing sectors globally is likely to drive the demand for welding equipment. In addition, the constant need for maintenance and repair of existing applications to ensure efficient operations across various end-use industries could further propel the demand for these equipment over the forecast period. A notable rise in infrastructure development projects globally, especially as countries focus on the expansion of renewable energy capacity, is leading to an increased demand for services such as wind turbine installation. This trend is expected to work well for the demand for fusing equipment over the forecast period. Furthermore, growing adoption of heavy thickness metal parts and advanced high-strength steels and the rising scope and scale of projects in the construction and manufacturing sectors are likely to drive the need for more advanced equipment. This is expected to drive the demand for welding equipment over the forecast period. Development of remote control technology, which makes the fusing process safer for operators and also helps meet quality and production demands efficiently is a key emerging trend in the market. Rising shortage of trained labor, particularly in advanced countries, is compelling manufacturers to take up automation as a way of making up for the shortage in their resource pools. This trend is likely to remain strong in the near future as well, with a large number of companies in the market expected to invest more on the development of automatic welding equipment. However, the sluggish growth of the shipbuilding and aerospace industries in several regions in the recent years is also expected to negatively impact the global demand for these equipment in the near future.
Technology Insights of Global Welding Equipment MarketOn the basis of technology, the market has been segmented into arc welding, resistance welding, oxy-fuel welding, laser beam welding, and others. The arc welding segment is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the increasing use of arc welding in offshore infrastructure development activities and the maintenance and repair of pipelines, process equipment, and nuclear facilities. The increasing number of government initiatives to expand manufacturing facilities by encouraging foreign investment in developing countries such as Myanmar, India, and Indonesia is expected to drive the demand for arc welding segment over the forecast period. Other factors expected to positively influence the demand for the arc welding technology are the affordable prices of arc welding equipment and the fact that they are easy to transport. In addition, these devices provide a better welding environment as the emission of welding fumes is less as compared to other technologies.
End-use InsightsOn the basis of end-use, the market is segmented into aerospace, automotive, building & construction, energy, oil & gas, marine, and others. The automotive end-use segment dominated the market in 2018. The steadily rising demand for cars globally is expected to fuel the need for tools and robotics in the automotive industry.
