The media used in this process are available in different shapes, sizes, hardness, and density owing to their key abrasive properties that find wide application in various end-use industries. Sandblasting media market is rising rapidly in North American region owing to its increasing demand for surface texturing and rust removal on various automotive and marine surfaces during the forecast span.
Moreover, thriving aerospace industry in the region will augment positively to the product market, that not only treats non-metallic and metallic surfaces but also enhances durability and appearances of different parts. Furthermore, its usage in the construction sector to treat steel structures, pipes and tubes for descaling and de-sanding will drive the sandblasting media market in the coming years.
The North American market is been segmented based on product, end-use sector, and region. The various types of products in the market include aluminum oxide, steel grit, silicon carbide, steel shot, sodium bicarbonate, glass, corn cob, coal slag, staurolite, copper slag, garnet, silicon sand, dry ice, nut shells iron slag and others. Here, steel shot media acquired a reasonably higher share in comparison to others and is likely to grow at a significant rate till 2025, driven by its wide usage in the end-use sectors.
Based on end-use sector, the product finds application in automotive, aerospace, marine, metalworking, construction, and others. Metalworking sector generated the highest revenue in the North American market when compared with other end-use sectors owing to wide usage of sandblasting media to remove rust from metal surfaces. This in turn will propel the demand for sandblasting media in the region
Some of the key participants in the North American sandblasting media market are Abrasives Inc., Opta Minerals, Saint Gobain Ceramics Material, Barton International, ABShot Tecnics, Synco Industries, Paul Auer, Blastech, Cym Materials, etc.
