Automatic Shot Blasting Market Research, 2031
The global automatic shot blasting market size was valued at $753.3 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $1.2 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2022 to 2031.
Automatic shot blasting is a process of bombarding abrasive material made of steel, silicon carbide, and other abrasive materials on the product surface. This technique is used to clean the surface by removing mill scale, corrosion, and other impurities that would reduce the product life. In addition, with the help of PLC and software installation in a shot blasting machine the process is fully automized.
High-quality finishing supplies are needed by various sectors. As the world's population has expanded, so has the demand for various construction materials. Several governments are focusing on building the infrastructure needed for affordable housing. The residential market was expected to be a major contributor to the construction industry's forecast 4.5% value growth in 2022, according to the Association of Equipment Manufacturers. Heavy construction equipment will be more necessary as both developed and developing countries' construction activity are growing. In addition, automatic shot blasting machines are used by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and aftermarket sales organizations in the automotive industry to strengthen, polish, and clean various metal surfaces. A significant issue in the automotive industry is corrosion. It adversely affects several parts' physical attributes, including strength. Shot blasting may smooth surfaces up to 75% more quickly than conventional techniques. Thus, increase in concerns regarding corrosion is, anticipated to augment the automatic shot blasting market growth in the near future.
Due to its great strength, steel and silicon are frequently used in the construction of automatic shot blasting equipment. Because of this, market participants find it challenging to maintain profitability and set budgets when steel and silicon costs fluctuate. For instance, since March 2020, the cost of steel in the U.S. has climbed by more than 215%, to $1,825. Prior to that, starting in at least 2017, cost of steel was in the $500–$800 range. In addition, silicon metal costs have doubled since COVID-19. These alterations are significantly limiting the market expansion for automatic shot blasting industry.
The demand for automatic shot blasting machines has decreased in the year 2020, owing to low demand from different regions due to lockdown imposed by the government of many countries. The COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down production of automotive production, building construction and other sectors for the end-user, mainly owing to prolonged lockdowns in major global countries. This has hampered the growth of the automatic shot blasting machines market significantly during the pandemic. The major demand for automatic shot blasting machines was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including China, U.S., Germany, Spain, and the UK which was badly affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting demand for automatic shot blasting machines. This is expected to lead to re-initiation of the manufacturing industry at its full-scale capacities, which is likely to help the automatic shot blasting market to recover by end of 2022.
Each industrial machine is being produced with the expansion and advancement of industrial technology. For instance, Wheelabrator introduced a new digital tool in March 2022 that monitors and shows the total performance of a shot-blast machine. It helps operators to spot problems and obstructions that prevent their blast machines from operating at their peak performance. Moreover, Wheelabrator, a producer of automatic shot blasting machines, offers contemporary shot blasting machines with features like exhaust ducting, quick turnaround, self-contained, fully equipped shot blast machines, tested and proven disc blast wheels, automatic PLC control, and other features. This enables fabricators to complete numerous operations with a single equipment. It is projected that these technical developments would create lucrative chances for the expansion of automatic shot blasting equipment.
