Dry Sandpaper Market Trends

  • Increasing demand for sustainable products is driving the market growth

An increasing dedication to sustainable practices and heightened awareness of environmental issues have prompted industry and customers to look for eco-friendly substitutes in various products, including abrasives like dry sandpaper. Energy efficiency and sustainability are prioritized in green building approaches, which are becoming increasingly prevalent in the construction sector. Due to its frequent use in finishing and construction, this trend will likely impact dry sandpaper. Sustainability goals are becoming a common feature of CSR campaigns for numerous companies. This can positively influence the choice of abrasives like dry sandpaper by using sustainable resources, reducing carbon footprints, and minimizing the environmental impact of their products.

Japan has made great progress in recent years in becoming a leader in green building and is still adding to its excellent Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) portfolio. Over 268 projects in Japan totaling over 29.5 million square feet are taking part in the LEED program.

Approximately 6,548 green construction projects have been registered in India. An agreement to promote green building techniques in architectural design and planning was reached in June 2021 by the IIA and the CII-IGBC.

Materials with improved abrasive characteristics are developed due to continuous improvements in abrasive technologies. Consequently, dry sandpaper goods that are more durable, effective, and perform better than conventional ones are produced. The development of novel and inventive abrasive materials, such as ceramic and designed abrasives, aids in the manufacture of dry sandpaper of superior grade. These materials frequently have greater durability, cutting effectiveness, and hardness. With the development of abrasive technologies, specialized abrasives can be made for various uses. Manufacturers can create specialized dry sandpaper solutions for various industries that offer optimal performance for metallurgy, woodworking, and automobile restoration.

Smooth and polished surfaces on 3D-printed objects are frequently achieved by post-processing. Dry sandpaper is a popular tool for surface polishing that helps producers and enthusiasts enhance the look and feel of 3D-printed goods. Various materials frequently used in 3D printing, such as composites, metals, and plastics, can be successfully sanded using dry sandpaper. Dry sandpaper can be used to post-process various 3D-printed things because of its adaptability. Because additive manufacturing is done layer by layer, 3D-printed objects frequently have layer lines or other flaws. Use dry sandpaper to make these lines smoother and get a more polished, polished finish. Thus driving the dry sandpaper market revenue.

Dry Sandpaper Market Segment Insights

Dry Sandpaper Type Insights

Based on type, the Dry Sandpaper Market segmentation includes <500 grit, 500-1000 grit, and >1000 grit. The 500-1000 grit segment dominated the market. This is because sandpaper with a grit of 500–1000 is frequently used in woodworking, particularly in the finishing steps, to provide a smooth and even surface between finish applications. Automotive surfaces can be painted with dry sandpaper with this grit range. It evens out blemishes and prepares the surface for painting and priming.

The <500 grit segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the dry sandpaper market during the forecast period. Sandpaper with coarse grit removes old paint, varnish, or coatings from surfaces, especially when ready to restore. In construction, coarse grits are used to level surfaces, particularly on rough plasterboard surfaces, joint compounds, and spackling.

Dry Sandpaper Application Insights

Based on application, the Dry Sandpaper Market segmentation includes wood, metal, varnishing, and others. The wood category has the largest market share. Coarse grits shape minute details and round edges and produce curves in wooden products. Before refinishing, wood surfaces can be effectively cleaned of previous paint or coatings using coarse grits. Medium to fine grits are utilized during refinishing to smooth the wood and prepare it for fresh finishes.

Throughout the forecast period, the dry sandpaper market’s metal segment is anticipated to grow quickly. This is to ensure a smooth and even surface for the coating to adhere to. Metal surfaces are prepared for coating applications using medium to fine grits. When sharpening metal tools, coarse grits are first utilized because they remove material effectively.
