Global Welding Equipment Market Analysis and Forecast 2015 - 2021

Welding is used in every small and large industry in fabrication process and repairing of metal products. The process can be used in space, air and underwater as well. Welding has wide range of applications including bridge construction, building construction, automotive, aerospace, and manufacturing industry, among others. The major equipment used in welding include welding machines, welding wires, cutting products, electrodes & filler metals, gases, welding automation equipment, angle grinders, and drill grinders, among others. The total impact of welding process on the metal industry can be calculated by the total value of the parts manufactured by this process. Industries prefer welding fabrication process over other fabrication process such as brazing, and soldering among others, as it is more efficient fabrication process, results in higher product strength and results in less cost production.
