A few key industry leaders such as ABB and ESAB have been constantly innovating and coming up with novel robotics solutions for welding applications. For example, ABB has been researching and developing a next-gen welding solution called “flying start”, which will save precious milliseconds per weld. Robotic welds will be embedded with a flying-start mode that will enable turning on the power source for the weld before it arrives on location. KUKA AG, a leader in industrial robotics, released its ready 2_grind robotic solution in 2017 that can be utilized for blending and grinding applications across multiple industries, where welding is a core activity. These innovations are expected to fuel the welding consumables market growth in the forthcoming years.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has crippled the global economy. Businesses are experiencing unprecedented stress as economies continue to report dismal numbers. We, at Fortune Business Insights™, aim to equip businesses with a comprehensive impact analysis of the current pandemic on different markets, based on our expertise and experience in market intelligence.

Market Restraint

Massive Shortage of Skilled Welders to Inhibit Market Growth

One of the major roadblocks impeding the welding consumables market growth is the severe shortfall of skilled welding professionals across different industries. In India, for instance, the Indian Institute of Welding estimates that the country currently faces a shortage of 1.2 million welding professionals, which is likely to swell to 1.35 million over the next three years. Similarly, the American Welding Society predicts that the deficit of welding workers will reach 400,000 by 2024. Moreover, the lack of skilled welding professionals is hampering the quality of products. For example, in June 2018, Ford had to recall 12,000 of its models owing to defects in the pump welds. In another instance, the UK was forced to delay the launch of its nuclear missiles in August 2018 after it was discovered that the missile tubes had cracks. Thus, deficiency in skilled welders is likely to stymie the demand for welding consumables in the coming years.

Industry Developments:

  • July 2020: Lincoln Electric expanded its flagship line of Ranger welders/generators by adding the new Ranger®260MPX™. The novel welding machine features a compact design and a digital interface, with a 20% lower carbon footprint than other comparable products.
  • March 2020: voestalpine Böhler Welding purchased a majority stake in Selco s.r.l., the leading welding machine manufacturer in Italy. Böhler is aiming to strengthen its position in Europe as the acquisition allows the company to add welding machines to its portfolio.

There is increasing research to study the behavior of materials at the atomic level to join two different metals without losing their metal strength, corrosion resistance, and other performance factors. In such a scenario, energy-efficient and environmentally benign “smart” materials are gaining impetus in the market. Smart materials are embedded with computer chips to monitor the weldment’s lifecycle performance and serve multi-functional design. For instance, welding and joining of NiTi shape memory increases flexibility in terms of smart design for multi-functional systems. Moreover, integration of such materials requires less energy and reduces the pre-heating and post-heating processes. Incorporation of such technologies would be beneficial for product designers for simulations, manufacturers, and welders to improve the entire manufacturing cycle.
