The global glass abrasives market size is projected to undergo dynamic expansion in the near future owing to the prolific growth of the construction industry, shares Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Glass Abrasives Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Product (Extra Coarse Size, Medium Size, Fine size), By Application (Steel, Construction, Automobiles, Others) and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027”. Recent data analysis released by Oxford Economics and Global Construction Perspectives showed that the volume of construction output will grow by 85%, hitting a value of USD 15.5 trillion by 2030. Leading these trends and accounting for 57% of the total increase in construction activities will be China, India, and the US. Furthermore, even amid the current coronavirus pandemic, with a large chunk of construction projects stalled worldwide, Oxford Economics predicts that the construction industry will still register a growth rate of 35% till 2030 and reach USD 5.8 trillion. This relatively unvarying growth trajectory of the construction sector will ensure a steady demand for glass abrasives as these materials are extensively utilized to clean, polish, and create smooth surfaces.

Health Hazards Associated with Abrasives May Deflate Market Growth
The glass abrasives market growth may get stalled owing to the potential risks to workers’ health posed by abrasive blasting. For example, common abrasives used in various industries include crushed glass, crystalline silica sand, glass beads, coal slag, and iron ore. Most of these materials contain toxic substances such as lead, cadmium, and beryllium. When these materials are propelled at high velocities solid surfaces such as steel, they get broken down into particulates sized 5 microns or less. At such small sizes, these harmful materials can easily penetrate and travel throughout the human body, damaging organs and causing all sorts of other problems. Crystalline silica, for instance, can cause chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), lung cancer, silicosis, and kidney disease. Similarly, lead can trigger complicated conditions such as peripheral neuropathy, anemia, interstitial kidney fibrosis, and poor semen quality. Industrial workers that are exposed to these materials for prolonged time periods are at high risk of developing the aforementioned health problems, which can create hurdles for this market.
Asia Pacific to Lead the Way; Europe to Present Vast Growth Opportunities
Among regions, Asia Pacific is slated to lead the glass abrasives market share in the forthcoming years on account of the exponential growth of the region’s construction industry, especially in India and China. Construction companies are rapidly adopting novel materials and technologies to deliver high-quality and long-lasting surfaces to owners and buyers of commercial and residential spaces, which are feeding the regional market growth. Europe is expected to generate attractive opportunities for market players owing to the robust automotive industry in the region, particularly in Germany, France, the UK, and Italy. The market in North America, on the other hand, is set to gain prominence as a result of the strong presence of well-established abrasives industry.
