Market Overview

The super abrasives market is expected to witness significant growth, at an estimated CAGR of more than 9% over the forecast period (2022-2027). 

The major factors driving the market are CNC machines replacing old technologies and conventional abrasives substituted by super abrasives.

  • The Covid pandemic has largely impacted the abrasives negatively, with the decrease in the demand from end-user industries such as automotive, oil and gas, aerospace and electronics. 2021 has been estimated to have helped in the growth of superabrasives but has not yet reached the pre pandemic levels.
  • Based on the end-user industry, the electronics segment dominated the market, followed by automotive and aerospace.
  • Asia-Pacific dominated the market, holding a share of almost 50%. This is primarily due to the rising demand from the electronics and automotive industries.
  • The diamond segment dominated the market, holding a share of almost 70%.

Key Market Trends

Electronics Industry to Dominate the Market

  • Super abrasives find various applications in the electronics industry. This is because of the type of materials that the super abrasive tools are capable of processing. The tools can be used to process semiconductor materials, ceramics, carbide alloys, copper and copper alloys, aluminum, resin, and rubber, all of which are majorly used in electronic component manufacturing.
  • Super abrasive grinding tools are largely used for the creation of PCBs in the electronics industry. Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) are the key elements for many electronic devices, like desktop computers and home theater systems, among others
  • Super abrasives in the electronics industry provide consistent slicing performance, uniform diamond counts, uniform wire diameter, even diamond distribution, and no diamond clustering.
  • Asia-Pacific and European regions are expected to be the key driving regions for the consumption of super abrasives during the forecast period.
Super Abrasives Market Share

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market

  • The Asia-Pacific region dominated the super abrasives market. Owing to the demand for electronics in countries, such as China, India, and Japan, the demand for super abrasives in the manufacturing processes is also increasing in the region.
  • China has the world’s largest electronics production base. Electronic products, such as smartphones, OLED TVs, tablets, wires, and cables, recorded the highest growth in the electronics segment. The country not only serves the domestic demand for electronics but also exports electronic output to other countries.
  • In India, the consumer durables, like electronics appliances, have witnessed a tremendous increase in production and sales, owing to the growing middle-class income, rapid urbanization, and change in lifestyle of the working class. Government initiatives have supported the expansion of consumer electronics products.
  • Many global manufacturers have expanded their production facilities in the ASEAN region following the supply chain bottle neck during the pandemic in China, and many manufacturing projects are underway in the next 10 years.
  • Such aforementioned factors, in turn, are expected to boost the market studied during the forecast period.
