Abrasives are materials that grind away elements like concrete, wood, ceramic, stone, & mineral, among others, and offer an elegant, sleek, & finished look to the finished product. Abrasion is majorly in polishing for a smooth & reflective surface & also finds application in roughening materials to matte, satin, or beaded finishes.
The Global Abrasives Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period, i.e., 2022-27. The market is driven by the swift rise in the number of construction projects across different corners of the world, augmenting the demand for these materials & hinting toward an opportunistic industry future for the prominent players to expand their operational capacities.
