Welding is a forming process that joins materials, most commonly metals or thermoplastics, by melting the parts together and then allowing them to cool, resulting in fusion. In addition to melting the base metal, a filler material is typically added to the joint to form a pool of molten material that cools for the formation of a joint based on weld configuration. The first arc welding machine was invented in Japan by Yoshio Nishikawa in 1921. Nishikawa's invention was a significant breakthrough in welding technology and helped to establish Japan as a leader in the welding industry. Furthermore, Japanese manufacturers continued to innovate and develop new welding technologies throughout the twentieth century. Japanese companies began producing welding machines and consumables for the expanding domestic and international markets in the decades that followed. Furthermore, in Japan during the seventies and eighties, the use of robots for welding applications became more common. Japanese manufacturers pioneered the development of welding robots, which aided in the improvement of welding efficiency and precision. Furthermore, Japanese manufacturers continued to innovate and develop new welding technologies, such as laser welding and friction stir welding, in the 1990s and 2000s. According to the research report "Japan Welding Equipment and Consumable Market Overview, 2028," published by Bonafide Research, the Japan Welding Equipment and Consumable market is expected to add USD 500.50 Million by 2028. Japan has a large and growing automotive industry, which is a major consumer of welding equipment and consumables. The demand for these products is driven by the need for high-quality and precise welding in the production of automobiles. Furthermore, Japan has several large infrastructure development projects underway, including the construction of high-speed railways and other transportation systems. Welding equipment and consumables are required for the construction of these projects, which is driving demand for these products. Furthermore, Japan is known for its advanced robotics and automation technologies, and this extends to the welding industry. Welding robots and other automated welding technologies are becoming increasingly important in Japan, as manufacturers seek to improve productivity, efficiency, and quality in their welding processes. Furthermore, Japan has a strong energy and power generation sector, which requires welding equipment and consumables for the production of power plants and other energy infrastructure. The demand for these products is driven by the need for high-quality and reliable welding in these critical applications. In addition, Japan has a growing defence industry, which requires welding equipment and consumables for the production of military vehicles, weapons, and other equipment. The demand for these products is driven by the need for high-quality and reliable welding in the production of defence equipment. The main organisations in the welding industry in Japan are the Japan Welding Engineering Society (JWES). The JWES is a non-profit organization that promotes research and development in the field of welding engineering and provides technical support and training for welding professionals in Japan. Some other organisations are Japan Welding Society (JWS), Welding Technology Institute of Japan (WTIJ), Japanese Industrial Standards Committee (JISC), Japan Society for Technology of Plasticity (JSTP), Japan Institute of Welding Technology (JIWT), and Japan Welding Association (JWA), Japan Welding Automation Society (JWAS), Society of Materials Science, Japan (SMSJ), National Welding Research Centre (NWRC) and many more. Based on product type, the market is divided into two sections: welding equipment and welding consumables. The welding equipment segment will hold a dominant position in this market in terms of market share during the forecast period, owing to the rising trend of automated machines used in various industries such as automotive and construction to join thermoplastics, metals, and others. The welding consumables segment has the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The high demands for customised solutions for joining dissimilar and non-metallic materials, as well as the rise in steel consumption, are all factors. Furthermore, this industry is now emphasising the use of simple and cost-effective solutions to protect the work piece from the outside environment. Consumables are gaining traction in this scenario because the raw materials used to manufacture them include copper, rutile, and aluminium, all of which have high tensile strength and antioxidant properties. According to consumable, the market is divided into Stick electrodes, Solid Wires, Flux-cored wires, SAW wires and Fluxes, and Others (gases, rods, etc.). Among them, In 2022, the stick electrodes product segment held the most market share. Stick electrodes are becoming increasingly popular for welding a diverse range of components due to their ability to increase welding strength as well as their high corrosion resistance and tensile strength. During the forecast period, flux-cored wires have the highest CAGR. Flux-cored wires have greater deposition rates than other welding consumables, making them ideal for high-speed welding applications. This makes them popular in industries where productivity and efficiency are critical, such as automotive, construction, and shipbuilding. Based on by Technology, the market is divided into Arc weldings and oxy-fuel welding . Arc welding is expected to gain prominence in the coming years due to the increasing adoption of fusion processes and the use of high-strength low-alloy (HSLA) across various industries because it is a flexible and cost-effective process. Oxy-fuel welding technology has the highest CAGR from 2023 to 2028. Its growing use in industrial manufacturing applications The welding equipment and products used in this technology are highly cost-efficient, which promotes their implementation in welding fillet, butt, and lap joints with object thicknesses up to 5mm. Based on end users, the automotive segment will hold a dominant position in this market in terms of market share during the forecast period as the automotive industry is focusing on reducing the weight of vehicles by replacing metal parts with plastic, which requires high precision. Based on equipment, electrodes and filler metal equipment have the largest market share. Electrodes and filler metal equipment are widely used in various industries, including automotive, construction, shipbuilding, and aerospace. They are essential for welding and joining different materials such as steel, aluminium, and stainless steel. The oxy-fuel welding industry has the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Oxy-fuel welding equipment is lightweight and portable, which makes it ideal for use in remote locations where electricity is not available. However, oxy-fuel welding produces a high heat input, which allows for quick welding and efficient fusion of the workpieces. This makes it suitable for welding thicker materials.
