Super Abrasives Market Trends

ID: MRFR//4502-CR | 100 Pages | Author: Priya Nagrale| May 2018

Super Abrasives Market Overview 

The super abrasives market is estimated to have grown at a CAGR of 6.78 percent to USD 14.45 billion during the forecast 2024-2032. 

Super abrasives have various applications in the electronics industry. This is because of the type of materials that the super abrasive tools can process. The devices are used to process ceramics, copper and copper alloys, aluminum, resin, semiconductor materials, carbide alloys, and rubber, usually used in electronic component manufacturing. Super abrasive grinding tools are largely used to create PCBs in the electronics industry. Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) are the critical elements for many electronic devices, like desktop computers and home theater systems, and various others. The demand for precision and machining tools helps in the increasing demand for the production of motor vehicles and construction activities. The product is used to manufacture drilling, sawing, and cutting tools to machine concrete, bricks, and stones in the construction industry.  The product is used as a grinding tool in the manufacturing of automotive components. Like steering mechanism, injection systems, gear shaft, and cam/crankshaft to provide smooth parts finishing. Increasing production of motor and electric vehicles is expected to boost the demand for the product in the market over the coming years. Due to this disparity, small and medium-sized businesses have been challenged to compete in the market. Especially for developing items which require new technologies. They also have a longer product life and less machine downtime, which results in the high initial cost and cheap machining expenses,
