Global Friction Stir Welding Equipment Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

The Friction Stir Welding Equipment is used to join two pieces of metal together by heating the metal and using a tool to move it around. This process is important because it creates a strong weld without needing any extra filler material.

Desktop Equipment:

Desktop equipment is used in friction stir welding (FSW) process. It is a portable device that helps to control the current and temperature in the chamber during FSW process. The desktop equipment includes power sources, temperature controllers, sensors, liquid level controllers and other accessories which are used for manufacturing processes of automotive industry.

The global desktop equipment market size was valued at USD 1.6 billion in 2016.

Gantry Equipment:

Gantry equipment is used in friction stir welding (FSW) equipment to transfer the workpieces during the process. The gantry consists of a horizontal platform with multiple arms extending from it, which holds different types of tools that are used for welding operations. Gantries can be single or double deckers and they have fixed or sliding platforms depending upon the type of FSW being carried out by manufacturers.

Application Insights:

The application segment is segregated into aerospace, automotive, shipbuilding, railways and others. In 2017, the railway segment held a major share in the market for friction stir welding equipment and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this application can be attributed to increasing demand for high-quality steel in railways applications as compared with other types of steel.

Automotive sector emerged as one of the prominent segments and accounted for more than 20% share in 2017 owing to rising demand from passenger cars and commercial vehicles coupled with growing industrialization across developing countries such as India & China. This trend is expected to continue over next few years due to rapid urbanization along with increasing disposable income among consumers resulting in an increased rate of vehicle production which will further fuel demand over forecast period.

In terms of revenue, automotive sector was followed by shipbuilding where friction stir welding equipment are used on a large scale across various sectors including oil & gas offshore platform construction.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a growth rate of 5.6% over the forecast period, owing to increasing demand for high-quality products and services from major industries including aerospace, automotive, and others. In North America, U.S.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be one of the fastest growing regions during the forecast period owing to rapid industrialization along with developing infrastructure facilities in countries such as China and India which are some of the leading consumers for these equipment globally such as Japan Steel Plate Ltd.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles
  • Growing automotive industry in developing countries
  • Rising demand for advanced welding technologies in aerospace and defense sectors
  • Technological advancements in friction stir welding equipment
  • Growing popularity of friction stir welding among small-scale businesses
