Grader Blades Market Analysis

Global Grader Blades Market Revenue Share, By Material, (2022)

Based on material, the industry is segmented into steel, heat-treated, carbide, and others. Steel grader blades market size was more than USD 1.6 billion in 2022. A wide variety of steel is the reason for it being a commonly used material in grader blades. For instance, high-carbon steel is preferred in the production of grader blades due to benefits such as enhanced safety, durability, and cost-effectiveness. High-carbon grader blades are relatively more durable than those made from other types of steel and last longer. They also have a more effective cutting edge as compared to other materials enabling more consistent, smoother, and sharper grading.

Based on blades, grader blades market is segmented into flat edges, scarifier edges, curved edges, serrated edges, and corrugated edges. The flat edge segment will expand at a 5% CAGR between 2023 and 2032. Grader blades with flat edges are suitable for applications such as heavy road maintenance. They offer exceptional strength with wear material that can withstand exposure to impact and abrasion. The adoption of flat-edge grader blades will increase over the forthcoming years due to the growing number of construction activities and transportation infrastructure development projects.

North America Grader Blades Market Size, 2022 & 2032 (USD Billion)

North America grader blades market was worth USD 1 Billion in 2022. The U.S. and Canada will foster significant demand for grader blades, due to extensive use in snow removal applications.
