Laser Welding Penetration in China to Reach around 21% by 2019, States Chisult Insight Market Research Report Available at

11 Oct 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – In 2015 the welding equipment industry saw an ongoing decrease in the key economic indicators like revenue, export, etc.; however, investments in R&D to create new products increased by 18.8% as against the figure in 2014. Hence, the players are trying to keep their competitive edge in the currently depressed marketplace.

In China the sales and output of welding equipment declined in 2015 by 24% and 22% respectively, and the inventory surged by 33%. The proportion of inverter arc welding machine both in sales and output kept on growing in the same year. Amongst which, the proportion of MIG/MAG arc welder witnessed the biggest increase of around 4.6%.

Laser welding is forecast to keep on growing based on the steady conventional Chinese auto marketplace and the vibrant EV market. Laser applications for cutting and welding enable highly automated and flexible industrial systems. During the period, various laser applications have already taken the place of big sections of classic fabrication methods like resistance spot welding. Conventional applications are the welding of doors, door steps, side walls, floor groups, roof joints, the front of the vehicle, and hood parts. The penetration rate of laser welding is projected to reach 17%-21% by 2019-end, with extra opportunities stemming from the usage of laser welding in certain auto parts.
