Use of grinding wheel in automotive is projected to increase during the forecast period

Grinding, the most important abrasive product, is involved in the manufacturing of machinery, electrical, electronic components, and automotive components. It is made of abrasive grain, and is a self-sharpening cutting tool. The majority of grinding wheels made have a vitreous, ceramic bond, made of clays and feldspars.  The grinding wheel segment accounted for the largest market share in 2015 due to higher speed, improved efficiency, and better productivity.

Automotive segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment of the abrasives market during the forecast period

The automotive segment accounted for the largest market share in 2015 due to the rise in disposable income, especially in developing countries, which led to an unprecedented demand for passenger and commercial vehicles coupled with shifts in consumer demand and expanded regulatory requirements. Efficient finishing of automobiles use abrasives for sizing engine parts, deburring, cleaning, to repair and maintain the body, interiors, and accessories of the automobile. They are primarily used to smooth out welds, clean the interior of pipes, and to smoothen out uneven and rough surfaces and edges.

Thus, this augmented demand for automobiles is expected to indirectly drive the growth prospects of the abrasives market in the coming years.
