Report Summary

The global welding materials market was valued at USD 13.9 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period. Welding is a process that uses extreme heat, metals and gases to join metals together. The different welding methods include spot welding, gas metal arc welding, arc welding, and gas welding among others. The welding process uses fluxes, electrodes, and shielding gases to obtain welded joints. Welding fluxes are nonmetallic materials used for various purposes such as shielding the arc and weld puddle from the effects of the atmosphere, preventing spatter in arc welding.

In electroslag welding, the flux forms an electrically conductive melt with specific engineering properties, whereas it cleans the surfaces of the base metal in gas welding. Welding electrodes are made of an electrically conductive material and conduct electric current to the weld. Shielding gases are used to protect the weld from the effects of the surrounding atmosphere, and are also capable of altering the chemical composition of the weld.
