Spot welding refers to a form of resistance welding wherein two or more metal sheets are joined together by applying heat and pressure to the concerned area. This is achieved using copper alloy electrodes that apply pressure and deliver current (for heating) to the workpieces. In this process, welds are typically made at regular intervals on overlapping sheets of metal so as to ensure uniform joining of the workpieces. Spot welding is primarily used for joining parts having a thickness of up to 3 mm. One of the most prominent aspects of spot welding is that the process does not include any filler material for welding the workpieces. This ensures highly precise finished products with minimal contamination.

Spot welding is used across a wide array of applications, including automotive, industrial manufacturing, aerospace, construction, and several others. The most significant factor fueling the market growth is the steadily growing automotive industry worldwide. The automotive industry contributes to nearly 3/4ths of the total spot welding market. Thus, due to the steady anticipated growth across the global automotive sector, the overall spot welding machines market is projected to continue witnessing robust growth throughout the forecast period. Another major factor contributing to the market's growth is the superior advantages of the spot welding technique over other welding and conventional joining methods, such as its cost-effectiveness, clean operation, simple working set-up, and fast operation.

The global spot welding equipment market is segmented, based on its types, into the following categories:

  • Welding on the Spot
  • Spot Welding on the Buttocks
  • spot seam welding
  • Projection Welding
  • laser spot welding

As of 2015, press spot welding was the largest segment, in terms of revenue, of the overall spot welding equipment market worldwide. Press-spot welding is the most commonly used and one of the most cost-effective techniques for welding sheet metal. Press-spot welding machines are extensively used for production and assembly lines. In addition, easy integration with robots also presents an opportunity for automation for manufacturers. With the rise in demand for automotive and industrial manufacturing, the press spot welding equipment market is expected to maintain its dominance in the future.

Global markets are currently experiencing high demand for the projection spot welding segment. The projection spot welder is restricted to very few applications due to its limitations. A projection spot welder faces limitations when welding unparalleled sheets; additionally, a projection spot weld is close to a corner or edge, where the welds can have excess spatter from overheating. However, a projection spot welder has the capability of welding a variety of cross-sections and is used for resistance heating, as well as projection electrodes, which carry more current and weld thicker material than spot welding electrodes. Furthermore, the projection spot welder accepts multiple tooling. Owing to the aforementioned merits, a consistent rise in the requirement for projection welding is expected during the forecast period.

The global spot welding equipment market is segmented, based on its application, into the following categories:

  • Automotive
  • Construction
  • Industrial Manufacturing
  • Aerospace
  • Railway
  • Electronics and Semiconductors
  • Others

Spot welding equipment is used in a wide variety of applications. Manufacturing units involved in sheet metal processing and fabrication extensively use spot welding. On the basis of application, the automotive segment dominated the overall spot welding equipment market in 2015. Spot welding does not require any filler material and has very little thermal distortion compared to other welding methods. As a result, many automotive manufacturers use this type of welding extensively for their frames and chassis.

Spot welding equipment is now integrated with precise positioning robotic arms. The feature of easy automation and the capability of deployment for a wide range of applications has led automotive manufacturers to adopt spot welding machines on their assembly lines for automotive assemblies. With the significant rise in automotive manufacturing, the demand for spot welders has also risen considerably over the course of time.
