Welding Equipment & Consumables Market worth over $25bn by 2024

  • Published Date: August 23, 2017

Welding Equipment & Consumables Market size will surpass USD 25 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Rising income levels of the middle-class population in the developing countries like India, China, Mexico, Indonesia, and Brazil is fueling the automobile demand. This has also led to improvements in roads and other transit facilities. The total sales of vehicles in India and China accounted for over 30 billion in 2016, whereas that in Japan was recorded close to 5 billion in the same year. Extensive product use in the automotive industry will propel the welding equipment & consumables market demand in the next seven years.

Growing construction industry in the Asia Pacific region due to rapid growth in the fast-developing economies of China, India, and Japan will further enhance the welding equipment & consumables market. Asia Pacific contributed around 45% of the global construction spending in 2016 and accounted for over USD 4 trillion. Moreover, infrastructural and transportation development shall further fuel the welding equipment & consumables market demand in the forecast span.

Welding process leads to considerable environmental and health hazards due to the release of toxic gases such as nitric oxide, carbon monoxide, ozone and nitrogen dioxide. These gases when released in the air cause contamination and may also result in pulmonary infection or respiratory illness to workers dealing with such welding activities. Poor working conditions in small and medium enterprises may lead to severe health hazards among workers. These factors might hinder the welding equipment & consumables market in coming years.
