Welding is one of basic technologies of industrial economy, used to generate a considerable fraction of GNP in industrialized countries. Such countries are characterized by sustainable development of welding production that is determined by growth in consumption of structural materials and welding equipment, and emergence of new welding materials, technologies and equipment in the market. World market of welding equipment, the main segments of which are welding equipment and materials has a stable growth dynamics with an annual rate of more than 7%, which according to experts, is equal to almost 30 bln. USD. Its main drivers are construction, automotive industry, power engineering, shipbuilding and aerospace industry. Rapid development of industrial technologies of the fourth industrial revolution is aimed at full automation of production, when management of all the processes is carried out in real time, taking into account changes in external conditions and the interaction of people and equipment, and mutual interaction of equipment without human intervention, using technologies such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of things (IoT), 3D-printing, cloud computing, mobile devices, big data processing, etc. 11 Ref., 1 Tabl.
