The global abrasives market reached a value of US$ 43.5 Billion in 2019. Abrasives refer to mineral-based substances that are used for polishing, grinding and cleaning surfaces. They are utilized in ultrasonic machining, abrasive jet machining and magnetic field-assisted polishing. Besides this, as they help remove excess sizing, slicing and material, they are commonly employed in the manufacturing of intricate components or creating ultra-smooth surfaces for machines and aircraft. They also find extensive application in the automotive sector for lowering noise levels, minimizing carbon emissions and manufacturing automotive parts, such as mirrors, valve springs and fuel and de-aeration tanks.
At present, the market is experiencing growth on account of the burgeoning automotive industry. Moreover, the thriving electronics and manufacturing industries act as another growth-inducing factor. Abrasives are used in these industries to scrape the metal in small amounts for manufacturing semiconductors and other electronic equipment with precision. Apart from this, leading players are focusing on various product innovations, such as the development of polyester- and fabric-based abrasives. They are also introducing advanced coated abrasives for metal fabrication, which is propelling the abrasives market growth. Besides this, the growing adoption of super-abrasives, such as industrial diamonds for precision grinding and cutting of hard metals, is also boosting their sales worldwide. However, due to the sudden outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), governments of numerous countries have imposed complete lockdowns. This, along with disruptions in the supply chain and the unavailability of labor, has halted the operations of various manufacturing units and negatively impacted the growth of the market. The market will experience growth once normalcy is regained. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 59.7 Billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 5.4% during 2020-2025.
