Global Non-woven Abrasives Market 2015-2019
About non-woven abrasives
Abrasives are used in applications such as grinding, abrading, and cleaning of objects to give them the required shape and finish. They are broadly classified into bonded, coated, loose abrasive grains, superabrasives, non-woven, and others. Non-woven abrasives are manufactured when abrasive grains are fused with nylon fibers and are bonded together with the help of synthetic resins such as phenolic, epoxy, and others. These abrasives are made up of aluminium oxide, carbides, diamonds, and zirconia. Non-woven abrasives are used for commercial purposes, including polishing of surfaces, buffing, honing, and sanding. They are used in the aerospace, automotive, construction, cookware, and medical industries.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global non-woven abrasives market to grow at a CAGR of 3.67% over the period 2014-2019.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Two major challenges faced by the manufacturing industry are achieving energy efficiency and reducing industrial waste without compromising the performance or quality of either operations or products. Abrasives manufacturers, to overcome these challenges, are adopting industrial methods, wherein they are increasingly evaluating low-value feedstock and waste materials for use in production.”
According to the report, most technological advances in the abrasives market are focused on grains, followed by resin and backing material. Most vendors of abrasives differentiate their offerings on the basis of quality, structure, and range of abrasive grains. Lower energy prices and easier access to grain-production technology are resulting in the better availability of a broad range of quality grains.
Further, the report states that stringent regulations and the citation of abrasive materials on the list of hazardous substances will dampen market growth.
