Ruling the EMEA welding consumables market, Europe led the pack, accounting for over 70% of the total volume of welding consumables in 2013. While market analysis indicates that this regional market is most likely to reach a state of saturation in the near future, the growing use of welding consumables especially in the automobile industry is expected to allow a moderate growth in the continent.
Ranking second in terms of volume, the Middle Eastern welding consumables market accounted for a significant portion of the EMEA market share. The year 2013 was particularly favorable for the regional market thanks to the surge of investments in the oil and gas industry. The rate of infrastructure expansion and economic growth in Saudi Arabia and other states within the Gulf Cooperation Council have resulted in escalating construction projects, consequently increasing the demand for welding consumables, services, and equipment.
The demand for welding consumables has also increased in Africa in recent years owing to growing repair and maintenance activities and the building of new power plants. Pipeline projects in the field of oil and gas as well as mining and metals is another key area that holds immense potential for the African and EMEA welding consumables market.
The preference of welding consumables depends on a number of factors such as productivity, suitability for automatic welding systems, lesser wastage, and the ability to be used by different welding technologies. While the demand for stick electrodes is high in the Middle East and Africa, developed nations such as Spain, Germany, Italy, the U.K., and Portland have switched from electrodes to wires and fluxes. Electrodes offer the advantage of low cost and high frequency of manual welding in Africa and the Middle East, and stick electrodes accounted for over 40% of the overall consumption of welding consumables in EMEA in 2013. This segment is also projected to be the most-rapidly expanding product segment over the forecast period of 2014 to 2020.
