Report Scope

The report will include details about various types of abrasives, materials used as abrasives, the abrasive manufacturers’ most commonly used grains, their production with values, the manufacturers of products using abrasive materials primarily for machine tools, users of abrasive tools and other applications, and users of loose abrasives. Estimated values used are based on manufacturers’ total revenues. Projected and forecast revenue values are in constant U.S. dollars, unadjusted for inflation.

The report will contain comprehensive information regarding the abrasive industry and the users thereof.

The initial section covers the technical aspects of the industry and the industry products offered in terms of applications and markets.

In the subsequent section, the abrasive grain market is analyzed on a global scale. This section covers the major abrasive grain types and their market details. Emerging trends are discussed, with detailed analysis of players and production capacities.

The U.S. and Europe are the two largest markets for abrasives and abrasive products. Separate chapters cover each of these regions, as well as the trends for both abrasive grains and abrasive products within these regions. Subcategories within each of these markets are also analyzed based on trade data and statistical data. Analysis will include average employee costs; which readers may find useful. In-depth analysis of the European market for Silicon Carbide is presented, with statistics in exports and imports within the European Union (E.U.) countries, as well as for countries outside Europe.

The industry’s technology aspects are reviewed under the chapter related to Patents and Intellectual property. Chronological review of the issued U.S. patents is analyzed, and companies active in developing intellectual property in the abrasive industry are listed.

The final chapter provides details of the industry players. This chapter is wide in scope, including the products, company history, locations and financials of more than 100 companies. The objective has been to include all companies with more than $100 million in annual revenues that are currently active in the abrasive industry.

Report Highlights

REPORT HIGHLIGHTS

  • The abrasive industry has two defined sectors in the market. These are manufactured abrasive grains, which consist of natural and synthetic grains and highly expensive super-abrasives (also synthetic); and the users of abrasive grains such as in machine tools and as loose powders
  • There are limited numbers of abrasive grain manufacturing companies. But, there are large numbers of machine tool manufacturers. Some of the abrasive manufacturers make the traditional grains, such as fused alumina and silicon carbide; others manufacture super-abrasives such as synthetic diamond, cubic boron nitride (CBN) and boron carbide.
  • The market for abrasive grains has been steady, with declining trends in the U.S. and Canada. The major supplier (particularly of the regular and lower grade grains) has been China.
