Super Abrasives Market is estimated to be US$ 10.9 Billion by 2034 with a CAGR of 6.4% over the forecast period.

Published Date: July 2024

The term super abrasive is used for abrasive grit type, cubic boron nitride or diamond, abrasive tools, sometimes the term is also used to describe tools made from these abrasives. Diamond is the hardest material in nature and is highly resistant to compaction (knoop hardness of 7,000-8,000), based on the opposite structure of carbon atoms, their regular, symmetrical arrangement and energy-rich covalent atomic bonds. Grinding wheels are made from different types of abrasives, the type of abrasive helps determine the best use of the tool, classifications of abrasives include bonded, coated and non-woven grit, bonded abrasives use a binder to bond the material to the shape of the wheel. Super abrasive products, either in the form of correction tools or grinding wheels, are used to shape materials that are too hard or too fragile for conventional abrasives: glass beveling in the automotive and building sectors as well as for high-precision grinding. Crystal and ceramic components, cutting silicon wafers, sharpening circular saws and woodworking tools. Super abrasives are used in precision grinding, with applications including automotive, architectural or crystal glass and ceramic components; shaping engine and transmission components, such as cams and crankshafts, Slicing silicon wafers or sharpening circular saws and woodworking tools.

Aluminum oxide is the best abrasive that comes in many forms, and its versatility makes it the most commonly used abrasive, white fused aluminum oxide is softer or more delicate than other abrasives. There are two types of abrasives, natural and manufactured, the important natural abrasives, such as emery, corundum and diamond, are used only in special types of grinding wheels and honing stones. Manufactured or synthetic abrasives are now preferred by women as effective as natural abrasives. Abrasive industry is mainly based on five abrasive materials, three traditional abrasive women, namely silicon carbide, aluminum oxide and garnet, others are diamond and cubic boron nitride, and they are called superabrasives. Minerals with a hardness of about 6 or higher on the Mohs scale can be considered naturally occurring abrasives, naturally occurring abrasives include sand, garnet, emery, corundum, and diamond, manufactured abrasives include alumina, silicon carbide, boron carbide, cubic boron nitride  and Hira.

Super Abrasives was established in 1982 to manufacture super finishing and honing stones for the then Indian bearing industry. Super abrasives come in the form of grinding wheels and are used when the material being processed is too hard or too fragile for regular abrasives, industrial diamond is one of the most common materials used to make grinding materials. Grinding wheels with diamond and CBN are called super abrasive wheels to distinguish them from conventional wheels like aluminum oxide and silicon carbide. The major factors fueling the market growth are the increase in replacement of conventional abrasives by super abrasives, increase in demand for machinery and tools, increase in government initiatives to promote construction activities, increase in implementation of these manufacturing technologies, and growth. The manufacturing sector is the major factor driving the growth of the super abrasives market. Super Abrasives Market was valued at US$ 6.2 Billion in 2024 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.4% to reach US$ 10.9 Billion by 2034.
