“The Fluxes & wires segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment throughout the forecast period.”
The Fluxes & wires segment, by Consumables, is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Fluxes remove impurities from the base metal surface and enable good blending between the base metal and the filler material surface. Fluxes are available in three forms: powder, liquid, and paste. Welding wires are generally prepared from mild steel materials and are plated with other materials such as copper to prevent oxidation and enable electrical conductivity. Copper plating also helps enhance the durability of welding contact tips. Solid wires have the advantage of high deposition rate, flexibility in application and can be used in external environments as well.
