Sandblasting Materials Market: Introduction
- Sandblasting, also known as abrasive blasting, is a process in which materials such as glass beads, silica abrasives, and coal sag are shot at a high velocity through an air tool across the surface of a hard material until the surface becomes clear of debris or has a sanded smooth finish
- Various types of sandblasting materials consist of silica/Si sand, aluminum oxide grit, coal slag, corn cob grit, glass beads, acrylic, crushed glass grit, and silicon carbide, among others. Silica sand is expected to hold large share of the sandblasting materials market because of its wide applications.
- The silicon carbide segment is anticipated to expand at a fast pace due to the wide application of silicon carbide in blast cleaning, primarily in the removal of impurities from steel surface
- The automotive segment is expected to lead the global consumption of sandblasting materials market. It is likely to be followed by aviation and building & construction segments.
- Growth in industrialization in developing counties is driving the metalworking application, which is further expected to hold important share of the sandblasting materials market due to its ability to modify metal work piece surface hardness and aid in carving patterns in slip resistance treatment of metal and non-metal item surfaces

Key Drivers and Restraints of Sandblasting Materials Market
- Significant growth in use of sandblasting machines in domestic and industrial applications; and increase in investment in the technological sector by leading players are driving the sandblasting materials market. Rise in usage of sandblasting materials in the automotive sector is expected to influence the dynamics of the market in the near future.
- The construction and metalworking sectors are expanding significantly across the globe, especially in developing regions. Extensive application of sandblasting for surface texturing of concrete and rust removal on metallic and non-metallic surfaces is estimated to boost the demand for sandblasting materials.
- Robotic blasting systems are being increasingly adopted in order to enhance the scope of sandblasting materials in areas where quality control needs are not sufficed by standardized automation solutions. Industries including aerospace, automotive, medical, and consumer electronics make use of these materials in several applications such as material removal, stress relief, mold cleaning, surface preparation, coating removal, and shot peening.
- According to the OICA, the global automotive production stood at more than 97 million units in 2017. The automotive industry requires abrasives at various stages in the production process.
- Implementation of stringent regulations in developed countries to safeguard workers exposed to sandblasting procedure in order to mitigate potential health hazards such as silicosis and nervous breakdown from the dust emission from silica is likely to hamper the global sandblasting materials market. These mandates are provided by legislations such as Clean Air Act Amendments, OSHA, National Ambient Air Quality Standards, and Environmental Protection Agency.
Asia Pacific to be Key Region of Global Sandblasting Materials Market
- In terms of region, the global sandblasting materials market can be segregated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is expected to be a key region of the sandblasting materials market by 2027.
- Asia Pacific is anticipated to be major region of the global sandblasting materials market in 2017. The market in Asia Pacific is projected to expand at a rapid pace in the next few years owing to the rise in infrastructure spending in the region.
