The welding consumables market is a steadily growing one, as consumables are required not only for new equipment but also for existing equipment; this is expected to be the case in the future as well. The report studies this market in detail. Various gases are used for shielding as well as for the actual process of welding (there are many types of welding processes). This market is flooded with new equipment every year. The market for these gases has been discussed in detail in this report.

An increasing number of industries are automating their production to a large extent and robot welding is becoming a standard feature of such automation. The market for welding robots is growing at a higher rate than that of any other type of industrial robot, and a study of the market for industrial welding robots is included in this report. In addition, the market for safety and protective equipment is growing steadily, with safety regulations being enforced more stringently in developing countries. A study of the market for these products has also been covered in this report. Of the many applications for the various types of welding, automotive applications are the fastest-growing segment. A detailed study has been made regarding the various types of welding employed in a variety of assembly and production operations in the automobile industry. In addition to the automotive industry, there are other segments of the industry (e.g., the  aeronautical industry and white goods industry) that are increasing their share of the welding equipment and consumables market. This report examines these industries in detail with respect to the welding processes involved and their share in these industries.

The rising awareness of welding processes, supported by continued advances in research and development (R&D), presents new opportunities for welding equipment manufacturers. The report studies the development of welding technology and the associated equipment, and provides an analysis of the patents issued that are related to welding, welding equipment, and welding consumables technologies. The structure of various companies involved in manufacturing, marketing and servicing of welding equipment and associated consumables is studied, with identification of the top companies in the field and the reasons for their dominant positions. Acquisitions and mergers, which are very common in most fields of business, are also covered in detail.
