Market D ynamics


Growing demand for products for grinding and polishing operation in end-use industries, such as automotive, electronics, electrical equipment and machinery, and metal fabrication, is expected to augment the market. In the production of automotive components, products are essential to alter operating field such as noise reduction and carbon dioxide emissions from high-performance engines and component processing.


Lack of raw materials and strict regulations impeding the market growth of the abrasives market. The most common corrosive raw materials are synthetic diamond, silicon carbide, cubic nitride, aluminum oxide, and ceramic. These raw materials are acquired from sustainable resources such as petroleum. The depletion of these resources leads to the depletion of raw materials, thereby limiting the growth of the market.


Growing application of abrasives in construction business to create growth opportunities Construction is expected to be the main application of the product over the forecast period. The increase in construction exercise is due to rapid urbanization and improved lifestyles. Economic growth in developing countries coupled with high innovation activities further support the development of the market. These products are accustomed in the construction industry in a number of applications such as woodworking and fabrication, metal fabrication and metal components. Developing countries, such as India, China, Japan and other Asian countries, are the main countries that are experiencing upsurge in the construction industry. The population growth in these countries has had a positive impact on product utilization due to the increment of residential construction. In addition, the large shift of industrialization from the Western region to smaller countries directly supports the growth rate of the construction industry, which in turn promotes the development of the abrasive industry.


The growing concern for protecting the environment and forestalling the spread of pollution has prompted governments to take action and impose strict rule on the utilization of this product, thereby hindering market growth.

Report H ighlights

By material analysis , the synthetic segment to hold large market share due to superior properties On the basis of materials, the market is bifurcated into natural and synthetic. They have a wide variety of applications because the shape of the abrasive can be altered as needed, the purity can be changed, and the crystal structure inside the grain can be controlled. These customizable properties provide a positive outlook for segment growth. The coated section consists of the granules, the base material, and the bonding binder. Each of these elements gives the product a unique quality that makes it suitable for different applications. The use of pile abrasives in consumer goods, manufacturing, power and hand tools, general engineering, furniture and surgical products will drive industry growth. Bonded abrasives are made up of a material held in a matrix called a bond. The growing applications for bonded abrasives in the automotive, electrical and electronic industries are supporting the growth of the market.

The growing applications for bonded abrasives in the automotive, electrical and electronic industries are supporting the growth of the market. There is a growing demand for super-abrasives in applications such as construction, precision edging in automotive, and woodworking tools. These products in are used to shape materials that are too fragile or too hard, such as glass, in the construction and automotive industries, ceramic compounds and other types.

In automotive applications, the product is primarily used as abrasives and segments to smooth or roughen surfaces for polishing, mounting or painting. Growing applications for cleaning, washing and repairing automotive parts will drive segment growth. In addition, rubber bonded grades are used for semiconductor manufacturing and electronic usage such as CMP tapes, re-grinding, wafer slicing, chip die cutting and other manufacturing operations. They have applications such as wide belts, flexible belts, beaded gels and nonwovens for advanced ceramics.
