World demand to rise 6.0% annually through 2015

Demand for abrasives worldwide is projected to grow 6.1 percent annually, reaching $44.7 billion in 2015. Product sales will be fueled by increasing consumer demand for goods such as automobiles, appliances and electronics, and supported by an acceleration in fixed investment expenditures. The largest gains will be seen in nations such as China, India and Thailand. China passed the US as the largest market for abrasives during the 2005-2010 period and is expected to account for over one third of total global demand in 2015.

Metallic abrasives, loose grains and powders to be fastest growing segments

Demand for loose grains and powders is forecast to expand the quickest of any nonmetallic abrasive type, prompted by rapidly rising levels of integrated circuit manufacturing, especially photovoltaic cells. Metallic abrasives are used in primary metal production, as well as in several metal fabrication processes, and are expected to register the fastest gains of any product segment going forward as developing nations continue to demand huge volumes of steel. Coated abrasives, which are used in a variety of applications, including automotive, aerospace and machinery manufacturing, will see increases similar to those in the overall manufacturing market. Superabrasives, used most often in a bonded form, are quickly gaining favor with manufacturers because of their long life and high performance.

Transportation equipment market to lead gains

Abrasives consumed in durable goods manufacturing accounted for more than 70 percent of total demand in 2010. The transportation equipment market will post the strongest gains through 2015, due to a pickup in motor vehicle output and strong growth in global aerospace manufacturing. Electrical equipment and electronics manufacturing markets are likewise forecast to rise at an above-average rate. Saint-Gobain (France) and 3M (US) were the two largest producers of abrasive products in 2010. The abrasives market as a whole is highly fragmented, with small and mid-sized producers that focus on specific applications, customers and products, accounting for much of the industry output.

Study coverage

This upcoming industry study, World Abrasives, presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, plus forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by abrasives product, market, raw material, world region and and for 22 countries. The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 industry participants worldwide, such as Cabot Microelectronics, Carborundum Universal, Saint-Gobain and 3M.
