“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela
Welding being one of the most crucial and required skills and technology in almost all the industries, there still is a lack of a professionally skilled welding workforce.
Welding now requires more advanced techniques and equipment. Even though there are many opportunities and availability of jobs, there is a significant shortage of skilled welders.
Welders are required in a lot of projects such as automation, construction, etc.
India already imports machinery and metals from developed countries, but now India is also importing welding operators, approximately 10,000 to 20,000 welders are imported till now.
“IIW has petitioned the PMO and Rajiv Pratap Rudy (Union minister for skill development) about the shortfall in the availability of skilled welders and gas cutters across the nation. Growth-led increased job openings and replacing the retiring workforce (over 2015-2022) accounts for a shortage of 1.2 million welding professionals including welders, cutters, fitters, equipment operators, and also engineers and inspectors.” Said Abby Joseph previous chairman of IIW.
Therefore, the welding workforce is important for any industry, especially manufacturing and infrastructure. It is the key player in the growth of our country in the manufacturing sector and our economy.
In fact, in 2018, welding contributed to 8 – 10% growth in our GDP. Skilled welders and their techniques regardless of how basic they are, now play an essential role in the growth of our economic and manufacturing sector, to be direct, our GDP.
There is a great demand for skilled welders due to the growth of steel consumption and production in our industries, despite there being a huge demand for skilled welders, there is also a huge shortage of skilled and professional welders.
This shortage is now causing losses in many aspects such as cost, quality, and time.
It is estimated that by 2030 the steel consumption in India itself may rise to 300 million tons, which will cause a rise in welding activities, the estimated demand for skilled welders is 4 lac which may rise to 5 lacs, 60% of it is in the organized sector where the welders are supposed to be professionally skilled and 40% of it is in the unorganized, rural sector.

India has the world’s youngest population, having half of the population below the age sector of 25, it has been estimated that 30% of India’s population is below 14 years of age. The working group of India which is 15 to 59 is estimated to be 63% of India’s population. there is a demographic dividend in India which is available for 5 decades i.e., There can be a huge economic growth due to the population of above 60% of citizens who are of working age. Although this level of economic growth can only become our reality if proper education and training are being provided to the younger population along with the younger underprivileged and rural population. Not only education but good career opportunities are being provided to them as well.
This is where the main problem is occurring, creating skilled and competent welders or workforce. Even though the working-age population is above 60% but 90% of our youth hasn’t received any vocational training.
FRONIUS INDIA MUSKAAN KAUSHAL YOJANA is an initiative to provide costless training in advanced welding techniques for the youth who are underprivileged at the innovation and skill center in Pune. They provide a lot of programs including incense stick, computer hardware, mehndi design, computer training, sewing training, mobile repairing, etc. These programs are specially built to provide professional training to upskill the underprivileged youth of our country.
Fronius India provides the most preferred welding equipment with more than 25,000 operational machines in the country. They aim to promote SKILL INDIA MISSION initiated by our Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, which focuses on providing training to the Indian youth regarding Industry-relevant skills which will help them acquire a better livelihood.
Programs like this are essential to create opportunities and to meet the increasing demands of growing and changing economies. Fronius India is aiming to promote health and education among underprivileged youth.
As stated above it is clear that our country must provide the necessary training, education, and skill development to our youth in working-age, especially to those in rural areas and underprivileged ones, to live a better life and to grow our economy.
“India’s strength lies in her villages. Our aim is to bridge the differences between rural and urban India. We want our villages to have all the facilities that are there in the cities.” – Shri Narendra Modi.
Contributing to this initiative and sponsoring it would change the lives and careers of many along with our country’s economic state. This will lead to development in our manufacturing sectors and industries.
