Wind and Solar Energy Industries – The next Leg of Market Growth

According to Global Wind Energy Council, adoption of wind power increased significantly in the past couple of years. The wind energy industry represents potential growth opportunities for welding equipment manufacturers. Due to environmental concerns, strict regulations are mandated by various governments around the globe on emissions of toxic gases such as carbon. This, in turn, bolsters the demand for wind power around the globe.

Increasing demand for clean energy is expected to drive the arc welding equipment market growth in various countries, particularly in Europe and North America. This is attributed to the expected need for power grid infrastructure and the manufacture of relevant components to ensure electricity transmission from wind energy fields to end-user industries in addition to residential and commercial sectors across different countries.

As a result of the installation of solar and hybrid power stations and wind turbines, emerging economies are also expected to experience a gradual increase in the need for arc welding equipment activities. This is expected to significantly increase the demand for arc welding equipment worldwide over the forecast period.

Opportunities from Ongoing Repair and Maintenance Work in Various End-use Applications

For repair and maintenance-related work, demand for arc welding equipment is expected to increase over the next few years. Industries such as energy, automotive and transportation, construction, shipbuilding, metal manufacturing, and processing are the ones, which require constant need for repair and maintenance, resulting in demand for arc welding equipment.

The overall market for arc welding equipment is driven by increased demand for automation or robotic arc welding. Manufacturing and processing industries witnessing a major shortage of skilled labor are being affected by the saturated labor markets.

Majority of the manufacturers are therefore shifting to robotic or automatic arc welding to increase their profit margins and decrease labor force dependence. In addition, automatic arc welding is widely used in the automotive industry and in the manufacture of steel structures.
