Coated abrasives refer to abrasive grains bonded to a flexible substrate using adhesives. Commonly available in the form of sheets, belts, discs, and rolls, coated abrasives play an integral role in several applications, including grinding, sanding, polishing, and finishing. With their ability to deliver uniform and consistent results, they are a preferred choice across a range of industries, such as automotive, metalworking, woodworking, electronics, and construction.
The growing preference for high-efficiency abrasion materials is propelling the global coated abrasives market growth. With industries striving to improve operational efficiency and product quality, the demand for advanced abrasives that can deliver superior performance is on the rise. This trend, combined with the advantages of coated abrasives – such as enhanced durability, flexibility, and wide range of grit sizes – is fuelling the market growth.
The widening applications of coated abrasives in various industries are also contributing significantly to the coated abrasives market expansion. In the automotive industry, coated abrasives are indispensable in several processes, including deburring, paint removal, surface preparation, and finishing. They are used extensively in the metalworking industry for applications such as cutting, grinding, and polishing metals. Meanwhile, the woodworking industry utilises coated abrasives for sanding and finishing wooden surfaces. These diverse applications underscore the vital role of coated abrasives in industrial processes.
Further, technological advancements and innovation in abrasive materials are bolstering the coated abrasives market growth. The development of new manufacturing techniques and materials that improve the performance and longevity of coated abrasives is driving their adoption across industries. For instance, the incorporation of superabrasive grains, such as diamond and cubic boron nitride, into coated abrasives enhances their cutting efficiency and lifespan, making them more cost-effective and desirable for industrial use, accelerating the coated abrasives market development.
