Sandblasting Media Market size is anticipated to grow at 6.5% CAGR from 2017 to 2023. Global sandblasting media market size, in volume terms, is set to grow at just under 6% CAGR. U.S. sandblasting media market size is to exceed USD 96 million by 2023.
Robotic blasting systems are increasingly adopted in order to enhance the scope of sandblasting media market size in areas where quality control needs are not sufficed by standardized automation solutions. Industries including aerospace, automotive, medical and consumer electronics make use of this equipment for several applications including material removal, stress relief, mold cleaning, surface preparation, coating removal and shot peening.
Optional features offered such as servo controlled rotary positioner, automated media flow control, automatic blast pressure control, rotary lance capabilities, custom data collection, report generation, automatic recovery is likely to drive demand. U.S.
Sandblasting media market applications include the use of abrasives to cut, roughen, smooth, clean or polish surfaces, or to remove material to modify surface dimensions or shapes. In addition, these abrasive particles are also used in coated and bonded forms for several applications including polishing, cutting, surface finishing, and grinding. Industries such as construction, automotive, aerospace and industrial are the major end-use areas.
Key insights from the report include:
Aluminum oxide abrasive blasting market accounted for over 10% of the industry share in 2017 and is forecast to grow at 7.2% CAGR from 2017 to 2023. It is preferred for specialized applications in which a particular surface finish is required that justifies the extra cost.
Steel shot and grit are expected to gain significant industry share from 2017 to 2023 owing to extensive usage in the blast cleaning sector for the removal of mill scale, and paint and rust from steel surfaces.
Silica sandblasting media market share dominated global consumption in 2017. This demand primarily originates from Asia Pacific, where the material finds extensive use due to absence of regulations similar to those seen in key European countries, as well as lower price point compared to alternative materials.
Asia Pacific sandblasting media market share was over 45% in 2017. Significant durable goods sector and growing infrastructure spending is favorable for the region.
