The global abrasives market was valued at USD 40.20 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 56.59 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.97%. The base year considered for the study is 2017, with the CAGR projected from 2018 to 2023. The primary objective of the study is to define, segment, and project the abrasives market size on the basis of type, material, product type, end-use industry, and region. The study also aims at strategically analyzing micromarkets with respect to individual growth trends, future prospects, and their contribution to the total market. It also provides detailed information about the main factors influencing the growth of the market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and industry-specific challenges). In addition to this, the study analyzes competitive developments such as acquisitions, new product launches, expansions & investments, and R&D activities in the abrasives market.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the market size included the top-down approach. The total market size for the abrasives market was calculated, and accordingly, the percentage was allotted to different sectors in each of the segments, which were done on the basis of extensive primary interviews & secondary research, and reputed associations such as German Abrasive Associations, European Abrasive Body, Unified Abrasives Manufacturing Associations (UAMA), and Coated Abrasives Fabricator Associations (CAFA). Primary research involved in this report includes extensive interviews with key people such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments. The data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of profiles of primary respondents is depicted in the figure below.

MarketsandMarkets projects that the abrasives market size will grow from USD 42.34 billion in 2018 to reach USD 56.59 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.97%.

The abrasives market has been growing in accordance with the global automotive, metal fabrication, and machinery industries. With rapid 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 witnessed between 2007 and 2009. The recovery of the global economy would also boost the demand in this market.

This report has been segmented on the basis of material, type, product type, end-use industry, and region. The aerospace sector is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the abrasives market during the forecast period. The automotive segment accounted for the largest share in 2017, in terms of both value and volume. Rapid urbanization and increased spending power in emerging economies propel the growth of the automotive industry.

The segmentation based on type consists of coated, bonded, and super abrasive. The coated abrasives segment is projected to grow at a high growth rate between 2018 and 2023. Based on material, the natural segment was the largest in 2017 as it provides benefits such as cost effectiveness, non-toxicity, low material consumption rate, purity, and high productivity rates. These benefits help to manufacture automotive, machinery, electrical, and electronics components with less maintenance, with ease, and of better quality.

Abrasives Market

Asia Pacific 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. A 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 electronics industry during the forecast period, especially in the consumer goods sector.

The stringent regulations and fluctuating prices of raw material are the major restraints for the abrasives market. Acquisitions and new product developments are important strategies adopted by many automotive companies in recent years. In February 2016, Saint-Gobain Abrasives entered into a new partnership with Detroit Speed (US), a manufacturer of high-quality automotive components systems and a builder of vintage custom cars. Through the partnership, Saint-Gobain Abrasives aims to supply Norton brand abrasives to Detroit Speed for its refinishing applications. The company will also display, promote, and sell the Norton brand of products in Detroit Speed booths at all shows and events.
