The automotive segment is the largest revenue generator in the arc welding equipment market, projected to be worth over USD 1.3 billion by 2021. This industry incorporates robotics and automation technologies in their welding practices to provide extremely precise and efficient welds,” says Gaurav Mohindru, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for engineering tools research.

The automotive sales in APAC have spiked in recent years, due to increasing sales of passenger cars in the region. There is a very healthy growth in the overall automotive industry, leading to high demand for all related industries, thereby positively impacting the arc welding equipment market as well.


Welding equipment has become a comprehensive equipment in the construction sector. It is required in the construction of buildings, bridges, pipelines, and massive offshore oil and gas rigs. Additionally, governments in developing and developed countries are creating a high demand for arc welding equipment for the completion of national infrastructure expansion projects such as roads, bridges, and dams. APAC, the US, and Eastern Europe are witnessing quickly growing construction industries, thereby driving the arc welding equipment market.

Aerospace and defense

The aerospace and defense sector is a crucial end-user segment of the arc welding equipment market, where the structural integrity of the components is paramount. The industry demands high strength-to-weight ratio materials and consequently uses welding to assemble components such as bulkheads, wing roots, hinges, spars, and engine mounts,” says Gaurav.

The commercial aviation sector is experiencing strong growth owing to increase in production levels, driven mainly by the demand for next-generation aircraft and growing passenger traffic. Similarly, commercial passenger aircraft numbers are expected to rise significantly owing to increase in the number of air travel passengers. Thus, the steady increase in commercial aircraft fleets will have a positive influence on the global arc welding equipment market.
