Rising Usage of Smart Materials Embedded with Computer Chips will Boost Growth

Welding electrodes are gaining more popularity nowadays because of the increasing operations that consist of joining two different metals. Hence, to join those dissimilar metals that would otherwise require high precision welding, such electrodes are vital. Apart from this, smart materials equipped with computer chips are being extensively used in the manufacturing facilities to keep a check on the welder’s performance. This factor would also propel the welding electrodes market growth in the near future. But, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the global supply chain processes and international trade. This may hamper the market growth.

Key Players Aim to Gain Competitive Edge through Acquisition Strategy

The renowned companies present in the market are mainly striving to gain a competitive edge by participating in the strategy of mergers and acquisitions. Some of the others are also investing hefty amounts of money to develop novel welding electrodes for attracting more consumers.
