Summary Methodology

Portable Abrasive Blasters Market size is anticipated to witness healthy growth during 2021 to 2027. The rising demand from construction and automotive sectors is likely to primarily drive the sales of portable abrasive blasters. Portable abrasive blasters are widely used for smoothening a rough surface, shaping a surface, cleaning & finishing of surface, and removal of contaminants, such as paint, residue, rust, etc., from a surface.

Favorable growth trends associated with the construction industry will propel the industry growth in the near future. Different kinds of metals are used for various architectural components including beams, design pieces, columns, etc., within the construction industry, which require protection from corrosion in order to sustain structural integrity and improve life span.

Abrasive blasting plays key role in surface cleaning of these metals and preparation for further applications. Moreover, it aids in restoration of wood, concrete, and brick surfaces and preparing them for painting, staining, and finishing processes. The construction sector is expected to remain a solid performer in upcoming years due to growth in construction spending and rising commercial & infrastructural construction activities across the globe. This, in turn, will spur the portable abrasive blasters market by 2027.

Portable abrasive blaster is used in surface preparation of aerospace parts for various processes, cleaning, stripping, painting, and finishing. It helps in deburring of surfaces and bonding materials to component surfaces. As aerospace components need high quality and precision to ensure reliability and excellent performance, the application of portable abrasive blasters for refining intricate geometries, small precision parts, and delicate compositions is paramount in accomplishing excellent surface finishes.

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the number of air travelers was around 3.8 billion in 2016 and is predicted to increase up to 7.2 billion by 2035. Rising air travel will generate the need for aerospace manufacturing, thereby supporting market expansion.

The industry growth may be affected by potential health hazards associated with the blasting process. Abrasive blasting generates a large amount of dust, heat, and noise. As the process uses different kinds of media containing toxic elements, it presents significant threat to the workers during application. The use of silica can cause breathing problems, silicosis, and lung cancer. Copper slag, glass, and nickel slag may induce lung damage. Proper precautionary measures must be implemented with the usage of personal protective equipment during abrasive blasting processes.

The portable abrasive blasters market is segmented on the basis of feed, media, operation, and application. Pressure fed portable abrasive blasters are used for larger production runs and provide quicker blasting than siphon fed portable abrasive blasters. These blasters use a pressure pot for pressurizing the abrasive media, mixing it with air in a mixing chamber. These blasters offer excellent control for blasting operations and are available in different sizes & styles. Pressure fed portable abrasive blasters are expensive than siphon fed blasters.

Based on media, the market is classified into dry and wet. The product can be used for all types of dry blast media. Crushed glass grit and aluminum oxide grit are used for aggressive applications, heavy rust, and paint stripping. Corn cob grot is used for softer wooden surfaces. Plastic abrasive grit, glass beads, and walnut shell grit are used for mold removal and auto restoration applications. The portable abrasive blasters market is divided into manual and automatic on the basis of operation. Automatic portable abrasive blasters are poised to grow at a rapid pace owing to improved operational characteristics, fast operation, and enhanced efficiency.

In the marine industry, abrasive blasting is used to clean rust and algae build up from boat hulls and marine components. It aids in effective cleaning & maintenance of ships and marine-based equipment while offering protection from moisture and submersion. Increasing seaborne trade activities in conjunction with positive outlook of the maritime tourism sector will positively influence the marine sector’s growth over the next few years. Such trends will bolster the product sales, thereby supporting industry expansion within the marine industry in future.

Asia Pacific is set to capture a significant market share by 2027. Rising population, increasing disposable income, and technological progressions will drive the growth of the regional automotive manufacturing sector in future. In addition, huge investments and government initiatives will further accelerate the growth of the regional automotive sector. Favorable trends associated with the automotive sector along with rising output of manufacturing activities will augment the portable abrasive blasters market by 2027.
