Welding consumables are materials such as metals, alloys, and minerals that are used for amalgamation of metal and thermoplastic components. Commonly used welding consumables for different welding processes in the U.S. include stick electrodes, flux-cored wires, solid wires, SAW wires and fluxes, and various shielding gases and rods. Flux-cored wires are used for shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) and flux-cored arc welding (FCAW) applications in various end-user industries. Welding consumables are primarily employed in building & construction, automobile & transportation, power, oil & gas, and marine industries. The bargaining power of buyers of welding consumables is estimated to be hampered, due to high degree of forward integration of manufacturers in the value chain.
