Global Welding Equipment Market Dynamics
- Growing demand from the various end user industries
Rising demand for welding equipment from various industries is a major driver of the global welding equipment market. Fabrication operations are required in industries such as construction, shipbuilding, aerospace, and railways, which aids market growth. In addition, rising middle-class income in emerging economies is driving rapid growth in automotive vehicles. They frequently employ welding procedures such as resistance spot and seam welding, rotary friction welding, and others.
- The growing infrastructure developments around the world
A significant increase in infrastructure development projects worldwide, particularly as countries focus on expanding renewable energy capacity, is driving up demand for services such as wind turbine installation. Over the forecast period, this trend is expected to benefit demand for fusing equipment. Furthermore, the increasing use of heavy thickness metal parts and advanced high-strength steels, as well as the increasing scope and scale of projects in the construction and manufacturing sectors, are expected to drive the demand for more advanced equipment. Over the forecast period, this is expected to drive demand for welding equipment.
On the other hand, the expansion of renewable energy capacity, as well as the prevalence of improved infrastructure, will further boost various opportunities, leading to the growth of the welding equipment market during the forecast period.
Due to the complexity of the manufacturing process, the cost of welding equipment, accessories, and consumables is also high. For commercial and residential customers, some welding techniques, such as laser and plasma welding, are prohibitively expensive. Customers consider sensitivity, selectivity, stability, cost, and portability when purchasing this equipment. Welding machines based on laser and plasma technology, for example, are more expensive than arc welding machines but far superior in terms of accuracy and reliability. High-end technologies of this calibre are chosen for high-end applications in the medical, electronics, and aerospace industries. The market is hampered by these high costs.

COVID-19 Impact on Welding Equipment Market
COVID-19 had a significant impact on the welding equipment, accessories, and consumables industry. During the early stages of the pandemic, factories in several countries were forced to close as governments imposed strict lockdowns to prevent the virus from spreading. Welding material manufacturers were allowed to resume factory operations after the lockdown was lifted and restrictions were eased, but only in a limited capacity and under strict rules and regulations. The demand for welding equipment, accessories, and consumables has also decreased because the majority of the demand is tied to end-use industries, which are also struggling to operate during the pandemic. Many ongoing construction projects and activities, including government infrastructure projects, were brought to a halt by the imposition of lockdowns.
- Lincoln Electric introduced the new Vantage 441X, the latest addition to its Vantage line of diesel engine driven welder/generators, in February 2021. This generator includes features that aid in keeping jobsite welding at peak performance.
- In December 2020, Lincoln Electric introduced a VRTEX OxyFuel Cutting feature that combines welding and cutting by allowing users to practise torch cutting safely and virtually in collaboration with The Harris Products Group, a Lincoln Electric company and the cutting leader.
