The global super abrasive market size is anticipated to reach USD 10.4 billion by 2025, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.3% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market growth is majorly driven by the increasing use of diamond in grinding wheels for precision and machining tools.
The demand for precision and machining tools is driven by increasing production of motor vehicles and construction activities. In the construction industry, the product is used to manufacture drilling, sawing, and cutting tools to machine concrete, bricks, and stones. As per the Institution of Civil Engineers, the global volume of construction output is expected to grow by 85% by 2030 with the U.S., China, and India being the major contributors. This is likely to boost the utilization of super abrasives over the coming years.
The product is used as a grinding tool in the manufacturing of automotive components such as steering mechanism, injection systems, gear shaft, and cam/crankshaft to provide smooth finishing of components. Increasing production of motor and electric vehicles is anticipated to boost the demand for the product in the market over the coming years. The diamond segment is anticipated to register a CAGR of 5.7% over the forecast period owing to the growing demand for precision tooling from automotive and aerospace industries.
The market is characterized by a large number of local and global players. Major companies are acquiring local dealers/manufacturers and are entering into partnerships with major end users to continuously supply products. For instance, in February 2016, Saint-Gobain Abrasives entered into a partnership with Detroit Speed, an automotive component manufacturer, to promote its Norton brand. The move is projected to aid the former increase its consumer base. Asahi and Tyrolit, in November 2018, formed a business alliance in Europe and Asia to expand their product portfolio for electronics, bearings, and gearing industries. This move has allowed Asahi Diamond Group to enhance its portfolio in bearing & gearing industry.
