Sandblasting Media Market will surpass USD 12 billion by 2025; according to a new research report.

In an era aspiring to achieve economic growth at all costs, industrial robotics technology has emerged as a productive means to sandblasting media manufacturers. Automated abrasive blasting improves on all those areas where manual sandblasting is a tedious task, by bringing key process parameters under control and providing a high degree of repeatability that cannot be performed on complex contours of the surface through manual operation. The use of robotics to derive standardized automated solution is gaining popularity, mainly due to factors such as improved product quality, increased output and optimum operational cost in both compressed air consumption and media usage. Hence, these factors will contribute towards increased demand for eco-friendly sandblasting media.

Sandblasting abrasives are primarily used in coated and bonded forms for several applications including polishing, texturing, cutting, surface finishing, and grinding. Industries such as construction, metalworking, and automotive are the major sandblast industry clients. Use of agricultural based media such as crushed nut shells or fruit kernels are witnessing growth in developed regions as these soft abrasives are used to avoid damage to the underlying components while cleaning interiors of electronic circuit boards and removing graffiti, etc. Presence of large scale manufacturing industries where surface treatment is an integral part will invariably boost the sandblasting media demand.

Sandblasting operations create high levels of noise, and dust. Some of the materials that are used during this process are silica sand, coal slag, garnet sand, slags of copper and nickel, that releases highly toxic metals such as beryllium, arsenic, and cadmium. These toxic metals, if not treated properly, might lead to fatal effects on both human and aquatic life after disposal in nearby water streams. Therefore, stringent regulations by several legislatives like OSHA, EPA, NIOSH, etc. has limited the use of such abrasive materials to prevent and control the exposures to operators during blasting operations.

Based on revenue, silicon carbide abrasives will hold approximately USD 2.5 billion of the overall sandblasting media market share in 2025 owing to its growing usage in lapping films which are used for polishing the fiber-optic strands before splicing process. These films provide high surface finishing that are required in the functioning of fiber-optics in the most efficient manner. Glass beads segment will hold a market share of close to 6% in 2025 and will grow with a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast spell.

Construction segment will hold over 20% for the global revenue in 2025 and is anticipated to grow due to the exponential demand for hard abrasives in sandblasting concrete, granite, tiles, and bridge & building construction. The degree of blasting may vary from light cleaning to a deep cutting operation. The marine segment will exhibit a growth rate of around 6% due to growing usage of abrasive materials in cleaning rust and removal of barnacles from boat hulls, anchor, ships containers, commercial fleets, as well as supertankers like very large crude carriers (VLCC).

Asia Pacific, led by China, will hold the maximum sandblasting media consumption with a market share of over 50% by the end of forecast period. Ease of manufacturing coupled with large scale metal recycling industry and availability of inexpensive labor will lead to rising construction and automotive demand in the regions. Surge in the provision of refurbishing automotive components is said to drive the regional sandblasting media market during the forecast spell.

Competitive landscape of the global sandblasting media market includes key players such as Saint gobain, Synco Industries, Opta minerals, U.S Minerals, Paul Auer, Abrasives Inc., Barton International, Blastech, Crystal Mark, Ensio Resources Inc, Blastrite, Harsco Metals & Minerals, Prince Minerals, etc.
