SteelFab can take credit of being the first event that exclusively catered to the complete wedding and cutting requirements of the steel fabrication industry in the region.

The formidable manufacturing and industrial sectors of the region were the main reason behind the rising demand for welding and cutting equipment in the UAE and the rest of Arabia. Heavy fabrications and focus on renewable energy usage also gave an impetus for growth in the welding markets.

Other sectors contributing to the overall market growth of welding equipment, consumables and services include the energy, construction and ship building industries, besides emerging sectors such as aerospace and defense.

Construction of new power plants and repair and maintenance activities in region are also likely to boost demand for welding consumables. Additionally, returning investments in oil and gas industries would further augment demand for welding consumables.

From the launch edition itself, SteelFab was intended to cater to the complete a-z requirements of the steel fabrication industry where metal forming and welding & cutting where the major elements.

SteelFab has continuously showcased the largest welding & cutting segment to be found anywhere in the middle east and north Africa and has been identified by the regional industry as the sourcing point for all welding requirements as well.

The welding & cutting segment is diverse, complete and offers a substantial variety of brands that it has in fact cut down the travel requirement to international shows, and the regional buyers are quite content to complete all their sourcing at SteelFab.

It is important to note that the regional industry consists of fabrication yards and engineering workshops and not “welding shops” hence a complete show like SteelFab is the concise answer to the complete procurement needs of regional industry.
