Automotive segment held the largest market share of the Abrasives Market 

The automotive segment accounted for the largest share in 2017 due to the rise in disposable income, especially in developing countries, which has led to an unprecedented demand for passenger and commercial vehicles. Efficient finishing of automobiles requires abrasives for sizing engine parts, deburring, cleaning, repairing and maintaining the body, interiors, and accessories of the automobile. They are primarily used to smooth out welds, clean the interior of pipes, and to smoothen out uneven and rough surfaces and edges. Furthermore, coated abrasives are used in the transportation sector for finishing and grinding applications. Thus, this augmented demand for automobiles is expected to indirectly drive the growth prospects of the Abrasives Market in the coming years.
