Laser Cladding Systems Market: Overview and Dynamics
The Laser Cladding System is a welding process that uses laser energy as a heat source to melt and weld material with various beneficial metallurgical properties onto a part with as little chemical dilution as possible. Laser Cladding System is one of the coats effective method to customize the surface properties of the low-cost substrate to increase the resistance to corrosion, oxidation and intense heat fatigue resistance.
Laser cladding system use is increasing from the automotive industry to the petroleum industry. Welding plays a major role in driving the demand of the automotive and mechanical industry. Apart from these, use in repair and revitalization of high-value components such as internal combustion engine and military equipment is also boosting the market growth.
The laser cladding system is preferred over the traditional methods of hard facing such as Flux core arc welding, Oxy/fuel gas welding, Furnace braze etc. because of low dilution rate, low distortion due to least energy and good surface quality with little roughness.
Having multiple-use automotive industry, the laser cladding system market is majorly driven by automotive industry. The decreasing cost of laser cladding system is escalating the market growth. It is used in the automotive industry as high tensile forming material are being used in the industry so the technology used in them should cost an effect for the manufacturer. Despite various market indulging assets, the increasing use laser cladding system possess carcinogenic material causing cancer is a key disadvantage for the market.
Whereas, the restraint for the market is the high integration cost, large size equipment and constant power supply source. However, the laser cladding system provides a time reduction process for the production of smart structures. Further, the development of automatic laser cladding system is a trend for the market.
Albeit, the occurrence of laser cladding system in the automobile and petroleum industry is ample due to its function of infusing different parts and repairing them, there is still a market for laser cladding system market to discover in the field of the food and beverage industry.
With the development of technologies such as SPX FLOW that provide the welding durable metal with stainless steel plates that can be used in the food processing plants in the food industry. This enhancement in the technology is set to elevate the laser cladding system market over the coming years.
Nevertheless, with the shortage of skilled workforce, many manufactures are focusing on the development of automated laser cladding system. One of the crucial factors that will positively impact the growth of the global laser cladding device market is the adoption of new and effective material hard facing and coating.
The use of laser cladding technologies has increased dramatically, especially in the wind power generation sector. Increased dependence on wind power due to low cost per MWh in places like China, the United States, Denmark, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Germany will push adoption of these systems in the market.
Laser Cladding Systems Market: COVID- 19 IMPACT INSIGHTS
