The global coated abrasives market size reached US$ 13.6 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 17.4 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.12% during 2023-2028. The rising demand from the flourishing automotive, metal fabrication, woodworking, aerospace, and electronics industries, the extensive emphasis on product quality and finish, and emerging trends of DIY home renovation represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Coated abrasives are abrasive materials bonded to a flexible backing material, such as paper, cloth, or film, via adhesives or resins, creating a sandpaper-like product. They are widely used for sanding, deburring, smoothing rough surfaces, removing rust or paint, and achieving a smooth and polished finish. The abrasive grains used in coated abrasives can vary in size, shape, and material composition depending on the desired application. Common abrasive materials include aluminium oxide, silicon carbide, and zirconia alumina. Coated abrasives offer several advantages over other types of abrasives, including consistent cutting action, precise control over the material removal process, and conformability to different shapes and contours. As a result, they are extensively used in metalworking, woodworking, automotive refinishing, paint preparation, and general surface finishing applications.
Coated Abrasives Market Trends:
The widespread product applications across the thriving automotive, metal fabrication, aerospace, and electronics industries for precision grinding, polishing, and surface preparation represent the key factor driving the market growth. Besides this, with the rising emphasis on quality and aesthetics, industries are seeking superior surface finishes for their products, which, in turn, is fueling the market growth. Moreover, the bolstering growth of the construction industry and the expanding infrastructural development, wherein coated abrasives are extensively used for sanding, smoothing, and finishing surfaces, is acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. In line with this, the growing demand for woodwork products and furniture and the rise in trends of DIY (Do-It-Yourself) culture and home renovations are aiding in market expansion. In addition to this, the shifting preference for lightweight materials, such as composites and aluminium, for manufacturing products due to their high strength-to-weight ratio is presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. Concurrent with this, the surging demand for eco-friendly coated abrasives due to the escalating consumer consciousness, the extensive focus on sustainability, and the implementation of numerous stringent environmental regulations are contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, ongoing product innovations and advancements in terms of performance, durability, and efficiency, combined with easy product availability through flourishing e-commerce platforms and online retail channels, are creating a favorable outlook for the market.
