Sandblasting Media Market Size, Share and Industry Analysis Report by Product (Aluminum Oxide, Silicon Carbide, Steel Grit, Steel Shot, Glass, Sodium Bicarbonate, Corn Cob, Staurolite, Coal Slag, Copper Slag, Si Sand, Garnet, Dry Ice, Iron Slag, Nut Shells) and End-user (Automotive, Marine, Aerospace, Construction, Metalworking), Regional Outlook, Application Growth Potential, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2021 - 2027
The sandblasting media market is expected to witness exponential growth by 2027 owing to booming metalworking and construction industries across the globe.
Sandblasting is a versatile method that can be used in a variety of applications and industries. The procedure is used when a material needs to be powder-coated, de-rusted, cleaned, and shot-peened, or otherwise have its paint removed. It provides several advantages, including effective prep, rust removal, damage prevention, and effective painting.
Moreover, sandblasting is commonly used in the medical field to increase the surface roughness of bone implants, which has been favorable for industry outlook. According to a 2019 study published in AIP Conference Proceedings, sandblasting is widely used to enhance the surface roughness of Ti-alloy implants, which plays an essential role in the osteointegration of implant material.
Notably, the expanding global automotive industry has augmented product adoption in recent years. In addition, mounting demand for robotic sandblasting technology in key regions has positively influenced market expansion.
The sandblasting media market has been segmented on the basis of end-user, product, and region. In terms of product, the market has further been bifurcated into nut shells, aluminum oxide, iron slag, silicon carbide, dry ice, steel grit, garnet, steel shot, Si sand, glass, copper slag, sodium bicarbonate, coal slag, corn cob, staurolite, and others.
The glass sub-segment is set to exhibit steady growth by 2027, progressing at more than 5.5% CAGR through the analysis timeline. Extensive use of glass in applications that require a softer and brighter finish is likely to be a key factor driving segmental uptake. Glass bead blasting facilitates the removal of a wide range of surface faults, including paint, burrs, scales, rust, and more. It is well suited for stainless steel applications. Various advantages offered by glass bead blasting are likely to drive product demand over 2021-2027.
From the end-user point of view, the sandblasting media market has been divided into metalworking, automotive, construction, marine, aerospace, and others. The aerospace sub-segment is projected to amass significant gains by 2027, progressing at a CAGR of approximately 7% over the study timeframe. Increasing production of aircrafts to accommodate rising number of passengers is estimated to fuel segmental development through the assessment timespan.
On the regional front, the Latin America sandblasting media market is foreseen to witness sturdy growth by 2027, registering a CAGR of above 7% over the forecast period. Prevalent use of sandblasting media across different end-user industries, such as metalworking, construction, and automotive, among others, is anticipated to propel regional market growth in the forthcoming years.
