Abrasive is a material that is used to mold or provide finishing to a piece of work, through a process that requires buffing, grinding, cutting, and polishing. The difference between the hardness of the material and the abrasive based on this abrasion depends. Abrasives are used in a wide variety of industrial, domestic, and technological applications. The abrasive products are used for various applications such as cutting, grinding, drilling, polishing, lapping, honing, and buffing.
The bonded abrasives market has been seeing tremendous growth from the past few decades. The primary growth factor behind the market growth are rapidly growing construction sector in emerging economies and advancement in technology. Besides this, requirement for bonded abrasives from the upcoming automotive industry has been increased will boosts the market growth. Nevertheless, downfall in the automotive industry and negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic are the major restraining factor that could hamper the growth of the market.
Due to COVID 19 outbreak lead to shut down of many industries. During this COVID 19 pandemic all the construction and manufacturing activities were declined due to supply chain disruptions and labor shortages. This leads to disturbance in the production of abrasives products. Also demand for abrasives products has decreased in marine and automotive industry will affect the growth of the market. Due to this scenario, COVID 19 negatively affect the bonded abrasive market.
The study analyses global Bonded Abrasives Market based on product type, application, end user and geography.
Based on type, the bonded adhesive market has been segmented into depressed center wheels, cup-shaped wheels, recessed or relieved wheels, and tapered body wheel. The depressed center wheels segment dominated the market in 2020 and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period 2021-2027. The factors driving the market growth are this wheels are designed to handle tough right angle grinding applications on metal, masonry and other building materials, hence demand for depressed centerwheels has increased.
The Bonded Abrasives market finds its application in Grinding, Fabrication, Polishing, Cutting and Others (lapping, honing, buffing). The grinding segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market owing to, increasing demand for bonded abrasives products in grinding technique. As the abrasive grains act as grinding tools, removing material from a work piece to shape and refine it.
The various end user included in bonded abrasives market are bifurcated into Automotive, Marine, Aerospace, Construction, Metal Working and Others. The automotive segment held the largest market share of global bonded abrasives market in 2020. As bonded abrasives has widely used in metal finishing or cutting applications. Hence, demand for bonded abrasives in automotive industry has increased.
Geographically, the study is comprised of the key countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle East & Africa and Rest of the World. Asia Pacific held the largest market share of global bonded abrasives market owing to, rapid industrialization and booming automotive and construction. Nevertheless, applications of bonded abrasives in cutting, polishing, fabrication, and others has a significant impact on the automotive and aerospace industry, will fuel the market growth.
The major key players of market includes 3M, Baystate, Tyrolit, Treibacher, Noritake, NIPPON RESIBON CORPORATION , Carborundum Universal Limited, Buffalo Abrasives , Abrasives Manhattan , Marrose Abrasives, Grinding Techniques Ltd , SAK Abrasives Limited , Sia Abrasives Industries AG Flexovit , Saint-Gobain , Robert Bosch GmbH, DRONCO GmbH, KWH Mirka , Fujimi Incorporated, Osborn (DRONCO), Precision Abrasives Pvt. Ltd and Asahi Diamond Industrial Co. Ltd.
The study analyses global bonded abrasives market based on product type, application, end user and geography. Bonded abrasives are those that are made into grinding wheels, cut off wheels, segments, cones, and other such forms. The factors that are responsible for the market growth are rapidly growing construction sector in emerging economies and advancement in technology. Besides this, growing industrialization will further boosts the market growth in upcoming years. The rising technology and increasing growth of automotive industry are the major factors that driving market growth. Nevertheless, rising demand in the different hand-held machines like angle grinders, vertical grinders hence it is expected to impede market growth over the forecast period 2021-2027. Geographically, the study is comprised of the key countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle East & Africa and Rest of the World.
