 Grinding Wheel Market Size to grow by USD 5017.1 million between 2024-2028

According to a research report “ Grinding Wheel Market” by Type (Straight wheels, Cylindrical wheels, Diamond wheels, Others) Material (Artificial abrasives, Natural abrasives) Geography (APAC, Europe, North America, Middle East and Africa, South America)- Global Forecast to 2028 published by Technavio, the market size is estimated to grow by USD 5017.1 million, at a CAGR of almost 4.36% during the forecast period. Grinding wheels play a crucial role in the oil and gas industry, particularly in upstream operations, where they are utilized for manufacturing, maintaining, and repairing components in the production process. The upstream sector's health is heavily influenced by global crude oil prices. A downturn in oil prices can significantly impact this sector, leading to a decrease in active rig counts and reduced operations worldwide. This, in turn, affects major exploration and service provider companies. However, with the recent recovery in crude oil prices, upstream operations are experiencing a resurgence, boding well for the future of the grinding wheel market within the oil and gas industry.

By Type, the Straight wheels segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

In the grinding wheel market, artificial or synthetic abrasives, which are predominantly composed of materials such as silicon carbide, aluminum oxide, boron carbide, and boron nitride, hold the largest market share. These abrasives, including carborundum, aluminum oxide, and glass, offer superior consistency compared to natural abrasives. Their uniformity makes them the preferred choice for industrial grinding applications. Artificial abrasives can be utilized in both block and powdered forms to manufacture various grinding tools or as coating materials during the production process of industrial equipment.

By Material, Artificial abrasives  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

In the realm of grinding wheels, straight wheels hold significant importance due to their extensive application in cylindrical, centerless, and surface grinding processes. These wheels come in various sizes, diameters, and widths, making them a versatile choice for bench or pedestal grinders. Primarily used to generate a slightly concave surface on the product, straight wheels are indispensable in industries such as automotive, aerospace, and shipbuilding. The burgeoning growth of these sectors during the forecast period is anticipated to fuel the demand for straight wheels on a global scale. These industries rely on straight wheels to manufacture intricate components that undergo the grinding process, thereby driving market expansion.

APAC is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024
