Increasing demand from machinery industry coupled with growing automotive industry is expected to drive the abrasives market”

The global abrasives market size is projected to grow from USD 41.21 billion in 2015 to reach USD 58.43 billion by 2021, at a projected CAGR of 6.10%. The growth of this market is driven by the increased demand from the automotive and machinery industries globally, especially in Asia-Pacific due to urbanization and industrialization. Also, the accurate manufacturing features involving various applications (grinding, cutting, polishing, sanding, and others) of abrasives are attracting the end-use sectors significantly. With the emergence of new technologies, contractors and consumers are looking for advanced and accurate manufacturing, which are driving market for abrasives globally.

“Coated sector projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period”

The coated sector is projected to be the fastest-growing segment on the basis of type, in the next five years. Due to the focus on rapid industrialization in emerging economies and development of the metal fabrication industry, a shift is expected towards the inclination of both, suppliers and consumers, towards abrasives. Increasing demand in welding, automotive, foundry, and jewelry industries is also expected to drive the coated abrasives market in next five years. Market participants are focusing on novel products such as wide belts, flexible belts, nonwoven fabric abrasives, seeded gel abrasives, and polyester backed abrasives. This factor is also expected to boost demand over the forecast period.

“Asia-Pacific is projected to dominate the abrasives market in 2021”
Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest share in the abrasives market in 2015, and is projected to dominate the market in 2021. The market in Asia-Pacific is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. The rise in disposable income, exceptional demand for passenger and commercial vehicles, and rise in the sales of electronic devices are driving the abrasives market. Due to the increasing consumption and production of industrial products in developing economies such as India and China, the abrasives market in these countries is projected to grow at a higher rate than the rest of the Asian-Pacific countries.

The abrasives market size is forecast to grow from USD 41.21 Billion in 2015 to reach USD 58.43 Billion by 2021, at an estimated CAGR of 6.10%.

Acquisitions and new product developments are important strategies taken up by many automotive companies in recent years. The abrasives market has been growing in accordance with the global automotive, metal fabrication, and machinery industry. With increasing urbanization and industrialization the need for new machinery has increased significantly throughout the world which has played a huge part in providing the necessary momentum to the global abrasives market after the economic slowdown between 2007 and 2009. The recovery of global economy would also boost the demand for this market.

The segments considered for this report are based on raw material, products, type, end-use industry, and region. The segmentation based on type consists of coated, bonded, and super abrasive. The coated segment is projected to grow at a high growth rate between 2016 and 2021. Based on raw material, the natural segment was the largest in 2015 as it provides benefits such as cost-effective, non-toxic, offers low material consumption rate, purity, and high productivity rates. These benefits help to manufacture automotive, machinery, electrical, and electronics components with less maintenance, ease, and of better quality.

The Asia-Pacific region is the most attractive market for abrasives, owing to the rapid growth in industries such as automotive, machinery, and metal fabrication in the region. The growth of this region is supplemented by the increase in consumption and production of industrial products in developing economies such as India and China.

Rise in disposable income, especially in developing countries, has led to an exceptional demand for passenger and commercial vehicles. Thus, this augmented demand for automobiles is expected to indirectly drive the growth prospects of the abrasives market in the coming years. Rise in the sales of electronic devices is likely to boost the demand for coated abrasives in the electronic industry during the forecast period, especially in the consumer goods sector.

The stringent regulations regarding raw materials and manufacturing process along with fluctuating prices of raw materials are the major restraints to the abrasives market. In 2013, Asahi Diamond Industrial acquired Koremura Co., Ltd (Taiwan) which helped the company to expand its product portfolio related to abrasive range for metal fabrication and machinery industries. In 2011, Saint-Gobain acquired two companies Abrasivos Argentinos S.A. (Argentina) and Dancan S.A. (Argentina). Through this, company has strengthened its manufacturing base in Argentina.

Exteneded Description

"Abrasives Market by Material (Natural, Synthetic), Product (Grinding Wheel, Sandpaper, Others), Type (Bonded, Coated, Super), End-Use Industry (Automotive, Machinery, Metal Fabrication, Others) - Global Forecast to 2021"

The abrasives market size is estimated to grow from USD 41.21 Billion in 2015 to USD 58.43 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 6.10%. With the rise in industrialization, the machinery and metal fabrication sector is expected to play a key role in fueling the growth of the abrasives market in the next five years. The base year considered for the study is 2015 and the market size is forecasted from 2016 to 2021.

Objectives of the Study:

- To define, segment, and project the global abrasives market on the basis of raw material, product, type, end-use industry, and region
