Analyst Review

The U.S. and Canada abrasives market is witnessing significant growth, owing to numerous factors such as increase in adoption of abrasives from the aerospace sector and rise in demand for abrasives from the de-burring tool market. The U.S. is one of the largest suppliers for de-burring tools. There is a surge in the demand for abrasives from the U.S. aerospace industry, owing to increase in private players in the sector, rise in export of aircraft parts to developing countries such as China, Mexico, and Japan, and others. In addition, there is an increase in the demand for abrasives from the food processing industry due to increase in adoption of food equipment from the food processing industry in the U.S., owing to a rise in focus on production & operational efficiency, processing time, and others. Moreover, some of the automakers in the U.S. are reducing the capacity of manufacturing cars at plants, owing to decreased revenues and profits. This factor has somewhere negatively impacted the demand for abrasives in the automotive industry. Furthermore, the penetration of electric vehicles in the U.S. and Canada has balanced the fallen demand for abrasives in the automobile sector. However, the demand for abrasives has decreased in the automotive aftermarket service, owing to decrease in demand for automobiles in the U.S.
