logoMarket Overview

Abrasive papers are coated abrasives consisting of a sheet of cloth, or paper with some abrasive material glues on any one of the two sides of the product. Abrasive in any material, in most cases a mineral, that is used to finish or shape a workpiece through constant rubbing, with the part being worked on being worn away due to the friction between the object and the abrasive material. Abrasive papers come in various sizes and are of different kinds depending on the abrasive material that is adhered to the sheet of paper or cloth. With constant product innovation, sand or glass that was mainly used in abrasive papers is now being replaced by silicon carbide or aluminum oxide. In such cases, the paper is more specifically referred to as silicon carbide paper or aluminum oxide paper respectively. Abrasive papers are created in different grit sizes and have wide applications during the removal of material from a given surface or to smoothen the surface, for instance, wood polishing.

logoCovid-19 Impact

During the pandemic, the global market cap suffered significantly which was a direct consequence of the lockdown impositions resulting in the temporary shutdown of production units. The demand for the product was also relatively low, as major polishing units or other non-essential segments witnessed a lack of new orders. Another major factor contributing to the loss was the unavailability of craftsmen who specialize in using the product as a result of the mass migration of people on domestic and regional levels.

logo Growth Drivers

  • Growing demand for wood-based decorative products to drive market demand

The global abrasive paper market is projected to benefit from the increasing trend of adopting wood-based interior decoration items in the current modern world. There is a huge section of people who prefer only antique or specially designed items to decorate personal or professional living spaces, as opposed to the other segment of people who prefer using mass-produced items. Even in such cases, it has been observed that products that are unique or are specially crafted are preferred more than products that do not exhibit more value. For instance, as per a recent report by Eurostat, European citizens are known to spend more than 5% of their income on furniture. As opposed to contrary beliefs, wooden furniture is more sustainable than other forms since they come from renewable sources, they last longer, show exceptional durability, and are known to have a significant impact on the mental health of the people using such furniture.

logo Restraints

  • Temperature sensitivity to restrict market expansion

Abrasives are known to be extremely sensitive to temperature and the environment. The physical and chemical properties undergo vast changes when the external conditions are changed. Two of the major concerns are heat and humidity. Because of changes in these factors, abrasive papers are known to show curling, edge chipping, clogging, brittleness, and other changes. These factors diminish the quality of the product over time and have to be frequently changed resulting in restrictions for global market cap expansion.

logo Opportunities

  • Increasing new entrants in the wood furniture market to provide growth opportunities

The global abrasive paper market cap may witness more growth opportunities driven by the increasing rate of new extranet admission in the wood-furniture market. With such additions, the number of craftsmen in the market grows resulting in a rise in ideas and craftsmanship, and a subsequent increase in customers. This trend can be observed both at the domestic and international level where furniture giants are partnering with domestic players to reach a larger consumer database

logo Challenges

  • High dependency on human resources a major market challenge

The use of abrasive papers is only as good as the person handling the abrasive. The dependence on human resources to operate and deliver is extremely high which is a major challenge for the global market players as it is important to make sure that the person handling the abrasive is skilled enough and is provided with the necessary safety gear for physical protection as there are associated risks when working with abrasives.

logoSegmentation Analysis
