Market Overview:

The global welding gas mixture market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for welding gases from various end-use industries, such as aluminum and alloys, ferrous metals, copper and alloys, and others. In terms of type, the argon-carbon dioxide mixtures segment is expected to lead the global welding gas mixture market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its properties such as low spatter formation and high deposition efficiency that make it suitable for use in various applications across different industries.

Global Welding Gas Mixtures (Welding Shielding Gases) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Welding gas mixtures (welding shielding gases) are used to provide a shield for the weld pool from the atmosphere. This helps to produce a quality weld. The most common welding gas mixture is 75% argon and 25% carbon dioxide.

Argon-Carbon Dioxide Mixtures:

Argon-Carbon dioxide mixtures are used in welding processes for the production of arc-resistant weld pool and high heat steel. The mixture consists of argon gas and carbon dioxide. It is used to prevent the formation of oxides (oxidized metal) during welding operations, which would result in an undesirable color change in the finished product.

Argon-Oxygen Mixtures:

Argon-oxygen mixtures are used as welding gas mixtures in the welding industry. The mixture of Argon and Oxygen provides a smooth flow, high purity, constant pressure along with it's cleanest combustion mode. It is also known to be one of the most versatile shielding gases that can be used for all types of metal weldments including thin plate work at high temperatures or large structure work at low temperatures.

Application Insights:

Aluminum and alloys led the global welding shielding gases market in 2017, attributed to increasing demand for aluminum in construction, transportation and electrical applications. The segment is projected to expand at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period owing to rising demand from various industries including automotive, building & construction and energy.

Ferrous metals are welded using an electric arc or flame with high heat input followed by quenching in water or oil depending upon type of metal being joined. The process not only melts but also vaporizes parts of the base metal which makes it possible for subsequent processes like rolling or further machining operations where ferrous metals are used as components in machines & tools etc., without additional machining operations such as drilling out shavings etc., which reduces overall cost saving resulting in higher profit margin on each unit produced thus driving growth further.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of over 40% in 2016. The region is expected to witness significant growth owing to rising demand from various application industries, such as construction, automotive and manufacturing. China is projected to be one of the major countries contributing towards regional growth on account of increasing industrial activities coupled with government support for infrastructure development.

The growing population in Asia Pacific has led to an increase in consumer goods production which has triggered the need for large-scale production facilities that consume huge amounts of energy and raw materials. This scenario is anticipated to drive industry expansion across several Asian countries, thereby driving consumption levels over the forecast period.

Europe was estimated as a second-largest region after Asia Pacific by Welding Focus magazine in 2017 due its high penetration rate coupled with developed economies such as Germany and France; however it declined by nearly 6% compared with 2015 rankings since welding technology has been replaced by robots thus reducing employment opportunities resulting into lower consumption rates since 2016 (Robots count rule).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for welding gas mixture in automotive and aerospace industry
  • Growing popularity of arc welding processes over traditional welding methods
  • Rising investments in infrastructure development projects worldwide
  • Proliferation of automated welding systems across various industries
  • Technological advancements in welding gas mixture production
