The Super Abrasive Market Size is Anticipated to Exceed USD 86.54 Billion by 2033, Growing at a CAGR of 5.88% from 2023 to 2033.


Market Overview

Super abrasive are tools used for polishing, grinding, or dressing that are made with diamond or CBN (Cubic Boron Nitride) as the abrasive material. The range of abrasive tools that can cover practically all processed materials, including high hardness, high brittleness, and high toughness materials, is substantially expanded by diamond and CBN (Cubic Boron Nitride) abrasives because of their complementarity in the processing materials. The two primary types of abrasives are natural and synthetic. In the different applications, both types of abrasive materials are used. The most common forms of abrasive supplies are pastes, powders, gains, and slurries. Grain size is the determining factor in the classification of abrasives. Over the last few years, natural materials have replaced synthetic ones in the creation of abrasives. Opportunities for market expansion are presented by the growing use of abrasives for a range of end use applications. Rising demand from the automotive sector will propel growth in the market in the forecast period. In addition to cleaning within pipes, these chemicals are also used to smooth edges, welding, and surfaces that need to be polished, oiled, or painted. While grinding wheels are customized for automobiles, coated and nonwoven products are utilized to complete the bodywork of automobiles.

Driving Factors

The abrasives are used in a variety of tasks, such as coating, core sanding, polishing, and repair sanding. Also, the abrasives find applications in the automobile industry for dusting, polishing, and cleaning. As a result, the market is expanding due to the growing need for abrasives in the automotive industry for a variety of applications. Brakes, steering wheels, wheels, and axles are examples of non-engine equipment and accessories that use a variety of abrasive materials. To gather tools, brakes include a unique abrasive with a non-directional scratch design. It is intended to reduce discoloration on heat-sensitive metals to get rid of brake squeals.


Restraining Factors

Aluminum oxide, silicon carbide, cubic boron nitride, synthetic diamond, and ceramics are the most commonly utilized abrasive essential components. Petroleum and other renewable resources are the source of these basic materials. The raw materials needed to make abrasives are imported from various countries the operational costs of abrasives are extremely high. The reduction in raw material availability attributed to the depletion of these resources limits the growth of the market.


Market Segmentation

The super abrasive market share is classified into raw material, product type, and end use industry.


  • The synthetic segment holds the largest significant market share through the forecast period.

Based on the raw material, the super abrasive market is categorized into natural & synthetic. Among these, the synthetic segment holds the largest significant market share through the forecast period. A product that processes chemicals or raw materials is known as a synthetic abrasive. Alumina, silicon carbide, and synthetic diamond are some of these materials. They are useful for a variety of tasks because they facilitate the modification of abrasive grain form, purity, and internal crystal structure.


  • The coated abrasives segment dominates the market with the highest market share through the forecast period.

Based on the product type, the super abrasive market is categorized into coated abrasives, bonded abrasives, and super abrasives, and others. Among these, the coated abrasives segment dominates the market with the highest market share through the forecast period. The coated portion is made up of bonding adhesive, a backing substance, and grains. These elements all contribute to the product's distinct qualities, which enable it to be used in a variety of contexts. Segmented growth will be fueled by the use of coated abrasives in furniture, surgical products, general engineering, consumer product fabrication, and hand and power tools.


  • The metal fabrication segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Based on the end-use industry, the super abrasive market is categorized into automotive, machinery, aerospace, metal fabrication, electrical & electronics equipment, and others. Among these, the metal fabrication segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Metal structures are made with this form of fabrication by bending, cutting, and assembly procedures. Using their steel-cutting abrasive disks, this product is used as cut-off saws, also known as chop saws, to form metal into the required shape. Fiber discs and flap discs are further products made from metal fabrication that are mostly used for smoothing and grinding down metal surfaces.
