Due to the nature of our business, TWI is in a unique position to observe trends occurring in the markets it serves. TWI's report provides supporting and complementary information to trends data that exists through other organisations.
Approximately every two years, TWI gathers information and interprets the data according to the latest market insights and makes the results available to its members as a report. This particular issue has taken longer than we anticipated to complete, mainly as a consequence of the recession, which rendered some market information obsolete and made forecasting trends difficult. It was therefore decided to wait for the economy to stabilise before finalising the report.
TWI is able to assist individual member companies with a bespoke analysis of the trends and forecasts specific to the Member Company's environment. No attempt has been made to cover any area in exhaustive detail in this analysis.
The report consists of three interrelated parts that reflect the matrix structure of TWI's information:
- Part 1: Industry sectors TWI serves and how TWI addressed some of those trends through its knowledge of welding and materials
- Part 2: Advances in welding processes and equipment
- Part 3: Materials relevant across different industry sectors
Our aim is to provide Industrial Members with top level market information combined with more specific, quantitative or semi-quantitative information that is directly related to TWI activities.
All three, or individual parts of the report are available to TWI Industrial Members free of charge.
