Welding Consumables Market to Reach USD 16.7 Billion by 2029; Algeco Reinforces Australian Business with Procurement of Net Modular to Boost Growth

November 09, 2022 | Machinery & Equipment

The global welding consumables market size was valued at USD 12.2 billion in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 12.6 billion in 2022 to USD 16.7 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period “Welding Consumables Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Type (Stick Electrodes, Solid Wires, Flux-cored Wires, SAW Wires & Fluxes), By Welding Technique (Arc Welding, Resistance Welding, Oxy-fuel Welding, Solid State Welding, Others (Electron Beam Welding)), By Application (Automotive, Building & Construction, Heavy Engineering, Railway & Shipbuilding, Oil & Gas, Others (Aerospace)), and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029”

The market is expanding due to an increase in the inclination to combine two distinct metals, the demand for unique and bespoke metal shapes and designs, greater fabrication, and applications in other intensive industries including manufacturing, automotive, and oil & gas.

Low Steel Demand & Disrupted Manufacturing Operations Restricted Market

The dynamics of manufacturing and other industries were drastically changed by the coronavirus pandemic, which also had a substantial effect on the labor market and the global economy. The COVID-19 pandemic had an impact on economies and companies in several countries as a result of lockdowns, travel restrictions, and business closures. The supply chains, technology events, and workplace closures were only a few of the significant upheavals that affected the manufacturing sectors.

Algeco Strengthens Australian Business with Acquisition of Net Modular

NET, a company that specializes in the production and maintenance of high-end modular school buildings, has had over 30 years of contracts with the New South Wales (NSW) Department of Education and Public Works. Algeco's presence in Australia's education market is now even stronger due to this acquisition.

Mike Smith, the Chairman of Algeco, also made a statement saying that the acquisition of NET significantly strengthens the foothold in the Australian Education segment. He also shared how thrilled they are that the NET team will continue to run the company and grow it. Welding technology has several uses, and the need from the automotive industry is driving market expansion.
