The global laser welding machine market is expected to post a CAGR of over 5% during the period 2018-2022, according to the latest market research report by Technavio.
A key factor driving the growth of the market is the growing benefits of laser welding over conventional welding. Laser welding offers several technical advantages, such as deep narrow welds, minimal distortion, and ease of automation, over conventional welding procedures. One of the key advantages of laser welding is its ability to automate the welding process, which helps in increasing the overall production rates. At present, laser welding is used in numerous different fields, from highly precise micro-welding of medical devices to small-scale manual welding in the dental and jewelry industries, via manufacture and repair of tools and dies, to fully automated laser welding in the automotive and heavy manufacturing sectors.
This market research report on the global laser welding machine market 2018-2022 also provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook during the forecast period. In this report, Technavio highlights the impact of additive manufacturing as one of the key emerging trends in the global laser welding machine market, mentioning “The use of additive manufacturing eliminates certain manufacturing processes such as cutting, bending, welding, and casting. Instead of investing in different manufacturing processes to manufacture a product in different stages. the manufacturers can produce the entire product using additive manufacturing. This will result in a significant reduction in raw material costs, capital costs, and the costs incurred in reclaiming the scrap material. Also, additive manufacturing can help in achieving fast design iterations. Therefore, further improvements in 3D printing technology and its increased adoption will lead to complete shift in manufacturing processes.”
