DUBLIN, June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Abrasives Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The global abrasives market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 5.59% during the period 2016-2020.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: Garnet is increasingly replacing silica-based abrasives in many industries due to the strict regulations imposed on the use of silica abrasives. The mineral is cheaper than silica, and its round-shaped grains make it a suitable material for use in many industrial applications.
According to the report, the global coated abrasives market is a red ocean market. The competition among the global and regional manufacturers is intense. The manufacturers are focusing on the development of innovative coated abrasive-based products to gain a competitive edge.
Further, the report states that raw materials such as silica, which are used in the production of abrasives are hazardous to human health. Exposure to silica can cause asthma and lung cancers. Such health hazards have compelled the governments of many countries to place restrictions on the use of silica in the production of abrasives.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
