Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/20/2012 -- Rough and tough: Recovery in construction and manufacturing markets will smooth industry growth
Abrasive & Sandpaper Manufacturing in the US
Rough around the edges
Over the past five years, the industry experienced significant declines in demand as a result of the heavy blow the recession dealt to downstream markets. An unprecedented slump in the manufacturing, construction and mining sectors caused industry revenue to contract; however, recovery in these industries is anticipated to revive demand for abrasives manufacturers. Despite this positive upswing, industry growth will be limited by increasing penetration from low-cost imports.
Industry firms manufacture natural or synthetic abrasive products such as: grinding wheels; coated or bonded materials; sandpaper; and other abrasives. Abrasive products are made from a variety of raw materials (e.g. diamonds, garnet, and silica sand); manufactured minerals (e.g. fused alumina and silicon carbide); super abrasives (e.g. synthetic diamond); and metal abrasives (e.g. steel shot, grit and sand).
