Research and Markets: Global Coated Abrasives Market: Study on Volume and Value Analysis 2015-2019

By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Coated Abrasives Market: Study on Volume and Value Analysis 2015-2019” report to their offering.

In 2014, China was the leading producer and consumer of coated abrasives, accounting for more than 35% of worldwide abrasive production and 30% of worldwide consumption. Consumption of coated abrasives has surged in recent times because of the ongoing economic and industrial development in the country. High per capita income and demand for consumer goods have increased the need for coated abrasives in the electronics sector in China. In addition, the rapid growth of the automobile industry in China, resulting from urbanization and the increased influence of the West, will further augment market growth. In 2014, the automobile industry accounted for more than one-third of the volume of coated abrasives produced in China, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.

According to the report, cloth and paper are widely used as backing materials in coated abrasives. However, the demand for products backed with pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) is on the rise. Many vendors, such as Saint-Gobain and CUMI, offer coated abrasives with PSA-backing. Key applications of these products include blending welds and defects in auto body shops, removal of paint and primer in auto refinish shops, and orbital sanding for the finishing of flat stock wood components.

Issues with quality and productivity during manufacturing have led to the growing adoption of synthetic coated abrasives instead.
