Welding Gas/Shielding Gas Market to Exceed 2.66 Billion USD by 2020

Welding Gas/Shielding Gas Market by Type (Argon, Carbon dioxide), by Storage, Distribution & Transportation (Cylinder & Packaged Gas, Merchant Liquid/Bulk), by Application (Gas Metal Arc Welding, Tungsten Gas Arc Welding), by End-Use Industry - Global Forecast to 2020


Northbrook, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/02/2018 -- The welding gas/shielding gas market is growing owing to the increasing applications of welding gas/shielding gas in the construction sector, growth in the aerospace industry, and rising demand for energy. Growing demand from the automotive industry also provides an opportunity to the market to grow further, especially in the emerging Asia-Pacific and Latin American regions.

Metal manufacturing & fabrication to gain maximum traction during the forecast period

The metal manufacturing & fabrication held the majority market share in the global welding gas/shielding gas market. The primary function of welding gas/shielding gas in the metal fabrication industry is to create an inert gas shield during welding, to protect molten and heated metal from the damaging effects of the surrounding air. Welding gas/shielding gas such as argon is frequently blended with carbon dioxide, oxygen, hydrogen, and helium to enhance the arc characteristics or facilitate metal transfer in gas metal arc welding. With growing infrastructural activities, the demand for steel has increased, which in turn, drives the welding gas/shielding gas market.
