This market research study analyzes the leading vendors in the global welding safety market such as 3M, Honeywell, and Lincoln Electric. A comprehensive analysis of this report is also presented by product (hand, eye, and face protection, hand and body protection, respiratory protection, and protective footwear), end user (manufacturing, construction, shipbuilding, and energy), and geography (APAC, Europe, North America, and ROW).

Global welding safety market forecast

According to the market research analysts at Technavio, the global welding safety market is anticipated to witness steady growth and will post a CAGR of nearly 5% over the forecast period. The majority of welders, solderers, and brazers are exposed to workplace hazards, such as intense visible light, harmful radiation from arc welding, airborne slag chips, flying sparks and spatter, burns on the exposed skin, and grinding debris from cleaning and finishing the welded product. Although welders are provided with safety goggles and helmets, wearer compliance and poor fit pose a serious threat to worker safety. Moreover, workplace accidents incur high expenditure in the form of medical bills, workers’ compensation, and lost productivity. According to experts, most of the workplace injuries can be easily prevented if appropriate eye and face protection are used. This has led authorities like OSHA and ANSI to introduce stringent regulations to eliminate workplace hazards, leading to the increased adoption of welding safety equipment over the next four years.

The emergence of laser welding technology is one of the recent welding safety market trends gaining significant traction in the market. Laser welding is used for a wide range of materials, especially those with higher melting points and heat conduction. Laser welding finds extensive applications where other forms of welding are insufficient as it is used to weld components that require low thermal distortion and high-speed welding. Moreover, laser welding offers high flexibility, precision, and productivity, which in turn aids in mass production. Laser welding poses serious hazards related to radiation, fire, electric shock, eye injury, and skin damage, which, in turn, will impel the growth prospects for the welding safety market during the forecast period.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global welding safety market is partially fragmented due to the presence of several small- and medium-sized players. The increasing focus on R&D activities and investments by market leaders ensure that product innovation is always the top priority. Although the top vendors hold the majority of the market shares, several private labels are launching PPE at a lower price in an attempt to use sales volumes to gain market share.

Key vendors in this market are 

  • 3M
  • Honeywell
  • Lincoln Electric

Other prominent vendors are Bollé, Drägerwerk, Grolls, Infield Safety, Intech Safety, Kimberly-Clark, Miller Electric Company, MSA Safety, RPB Safety, RSG Safety, Scott Safety, and Tusker.

Product segmentation and analysis of the welding safety market

  • Head, eye, and face protection
  • Hand and body protection
  • Respiratory protection
  • Protective footwear

Based on the welding safety market outlook, the head, eye, and face protection segment was the highest revenue contributing sector in the market and is expected to lead in the market over the next four years. Prolonged exposure to IR radiations can cause a type of eye burn known as welder's flash. Although welder’s flash can be temporary, prolonged exposure can cause permanent eye injury to the workers. Moreover, repeated exposure to welding can cause extreme eye discomfort resulting in swelling, fluid excretion, and temporary blindness. Also, prolonged exposure to UV radiation can also burn exposed skin and cause second- and third-degree skin burns or skin cancer. To prevent welding-related fatalities like eye injury and skin burns, it is imperative for the workers to use helmets, face shields, and protective glasses and goggles.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the welding safety market

  • APAC
  • Europe
  • North America
  • ROW

In terms of geography, North America led the global welding safety market and is likely to continue its dominance during the forecast period. The growth of the market in the region is attributed to the increased development in various industries and strict workplace regulations. The US is the highest revenue contributing country in the region as the country is witnessing a significant resurgence in its construction and automotive sectors. Also, an increase in the demand for new automotive in the region will also contribute to the growth of this market in North America over the coming years.
