Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/19/2017 -- Market Highlights

Coated abrasives are used to grind, scour, clean or remove solid materials by rubbing action or by impact using equipment's. Coated Abrasive market is expected to grow at rapid pace owing to its growing applications such as auto OEMs, fabrication, furniture, flooring etc.

Coated Abrasives are manufactured from synthetic or natural grain minerals such as aluminum oxide, silicon carbide, zirconia alumina and ceramic. These grain minerals are supported by backing materials such as paper, cloth, fiber, polyester film, others. These materials are then transformed into jumbo rolls which are then cut down into shapes such as discs, sheets, belts and rolls for smoothening, polishing and surface treatment application.

Rise in demand for coated abrasives in welding, foundry, automotive industry is anticipated to propel the demand for coated abrasives market in coming years. The use of coated abrasive in order to improve the surface finish along with high productivity is driving the coated abrasive market growth.
