Global outlook of the laser cladding equipment market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global laser cladding equipment market to grow steadily during the forecast period and post a CAGR of more than 8% by 2021. This industry research report identifies the need for additional corrective machining to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this laser cladding systems market in the coming years. The traditional method of cladding requires high volume of heat to clad the metals together and also requires additional corrective machining which will increase production time and also operational costs. This increases the need for improving the efficiency, performance, and extended product life, which will demand the need for laser cladding that improves the efficiency and also life of the product. Moreover, laser cladding can also be used to recondition a used tool and achieve improved efficiency at a much lower cost, which will be an additional factor that will increase the demand for laser cladding machines in the coming years.

One of the major factors that will gain traction in the laser cladding systems market in the coming years is the increase adoption of additive manufacturing. Additive manufacturing is the process of manufacturing 3D objects by depositing materials. Due to their efficiency, additive manufacturing is being increasingly used by several industries including aircraft, automotive, and medical implants to fabricate their end-use products. Since additive manufacturing such as selective laser sintering (SLS) and stereolithography (SLA) use laser technologies, their increase adoption will consequently increase the demand for laser cladding.

Overview of the CNG compressor aftermarket

Technavio’s market research analysts have predicted that the global CNG compressor aftermarket will witness slow paced growth at a CAGR of more than 2% during the forecast period. With the growing use of CNG as fuel, the CNG compressor aftermarket is anticipated to have a positive outlook in the coming years. The transportation sector alone contributed about 14% of the total GHG emissions from all sector during 2014. Since GHG emissions have adverse effects on the environments, the governments of most countries are taking initiatives to curb the widespread pollution from vehicles by replacing gasoline and diesel with CNG in the transportation sector. Moreover, CNG has several other advantages over conventional fuels including low cost, reduced the maintenance cost of vehicles, and enhanced performance of vehicles. These factors are expected to propel the demand for CNG vehicles, which will., in turn, drive the CNG compressor aftermarket over the next four years.

One of the recent trends gaining traction in the market is the increasing adoption of natural gas vehicles. Natural gas has the potential to contribute significantly toward natural gas mitigation and increasing natural gas infrastructure developments is expected to propel this market’s growth. Governments in various countries actively support the development of NGV fueling stations. In the US, CNG and LNG are considered as alternate fuels. Moreover, the government provides 30% tax credit for natural gas

Overview of the marine deck machinery market

Technavio’s market research analysts have predicted that the global marine deck machinery market will witness steady growth and will post a moderate CAGR of close to 3% over the forecast period. With the scrapping of older ships, the market for marine deck machinery is anticipated to have a positive outlook over the coming years. During 2015, nearly 950 ships were scrapped and by 2016 end, 800-900 ships that are expected to account for 40 million tons are expected to be scrapped. The scrapping of ships is expected to help the shipbuilding industry overcome the downturn experienced during the 2008 slowdown in the Chinese economy. The scrapping of old ships is expected to increase year-over-year, which not only limits the oversupply of vessels, but also increases the demand for new vessels by 40%-50%, which will, in turn, drive the sales for marine deck machinery during the predicted period.

One of the latest trends gaining traction in the market is the increased provision of end-to-end integrated services. The augmented demand for healthy food around the world is driving the global refrigerated transport market to supply quick and efficient end-to-end services. With the increase in trading activities, especially for perishable goods, the market for refrigerated seaways transportation is expected to have a positive outlook until the end of 2021. The growth in refrigerated seaways transportation market is expected to increase the demand for ships, which directly impact the growth of the marine deck machinery market positively over the next four years.
