The need to automate manufacturing processes is one of the major requirements of the global eelding equipment market.

According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the increased demand from emerging countries. Industrialization, modernization, and urbanization are the three factors that are determining the demand for welding equipment in the emerging countries.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the slow adoption of advanced technologies in the APAC region. The end-users in the APAC region are price conscious and are still reluctant to adopt new technologies because of the price of procurement.
