Revolution in the automation industry is said to drive the sandblasting machines market demand largely. Growing demand for robotic blasting procedure in marine, automotive building & construction industries, where complex process requirements, precision and accuracy are most critical factors, is steadily surpassing traditional blasting solution due to increasing applications including surface preparation, coating removal of historic monuments, boat hulls, tanks, truss towers, bridges etc. With a robotic blast system, the need for extra manpower to operate the machine is reduced that eventually reduces the operational costs and waste generation. These factors will boost the global sandblasting machines market demand in coming years.

Increasing popularity of sandblasting machines in construction and restoration activities to roughen, smooth, or clean surfaces to improve the shelf life of architectural monuments and surface texturing of aesthetic concrete to enhance its durability is primarily driving the industry demand. In addition to this, the flourishing residential construction sector will likely accelerate demand for sandblasting machine equipment. Robust growth of construction industry owing to rapid industrialization in developing countries such as China, India Japan will spur the demand for sandblasting machines during the forecast spell.

The industry can elicit potential environmental concerns due to factors such as noise pollution and process wastewater discharges from dust control sprays. Inhalation of dust from silica sand and other abrasive materials might pose potential health hazards as it increases the risk of contraction of several lungs diseases like silicosis. Governments of many countries had prohibited the use of cleaning abrasives that contains more than 0.1% silica, and several counterparts approved by government bodies like EPA, USDA, and FDA are also being adopted by manufacturers such as eco-friendly dry ice blasting to avoid environmental effect. Abrasive blasting is also used to eliminate the composites of lead paint on the steel structure of bridges, that might pose a risk to the nervous system of the operator.

Sandblasting Machines Market, By Blasting Type

Based on blasting type, the global sandblasting machines market has been segmented into two major categories, namely, dry blasting, and wet blasting. The global wet sandblasting machines segment is said to witness growth at a moderate pace and accounted for over two third of the overall industry.

In wet sandblasting, an abrasive material is mixed with the water jet to create an abrasive spray Wet sandblasting is considered as an alternative to dry blasting that includes blast cabinets, blasting booths, production machinery and portable blasting units. Its advantages include reduced dust and the elimination of static cling will form a clean surface. It has wide acceptance in the field of paint removal and widely used in heavy engineering, fabrication, and construction.

Sandblasting Machines Market, By Control System

Based on control system, the global sandblasting machines market has been segmented into three major categories, namely, automatic, semi-automatic, and manual. The U.S. automatic blasting segment is said to witness growth at a moderate pace and accounted for around 45 % share in the in the overall industry.

The APAC manual blasting segment held a maximum industry share of close to 40% in 2017 and will grow at the highest CAGR over the coming 7 years, due to availability of inexpensive labor and absence of regulatory norms. The semi-automatic blasting segment accounted for over USD 50 million in 2017 and will grow with a CAGR of over 5% in the forecast spell.

Sandblasting Machines Market, By Tank Capacity

The global sandblasting machines market has been segmented on the basis of tank capacity available in less than 1,000 Liters (L), 1,000 L to 2,000 L, 2,000 L to 3,000 L and above 3,000 L. The less than 1,000 L segment will capture the highest market share of around 70% by the end of 2017.

In 2017, 1,000 L to 2,000 L segment held an industry share of close to 20% in the global sand blasting machines market. The usage of stationary sandblasting machines in robotic blasting procedures will augment the stationary sandblasting machine market demand, thereby boosting the overall industry.

Sandblasting Machines Industry, By Application

The application areas of the product include mini and industrial. Industrial sand blasting machines market size was estimated to be the leading product segment on the basis of volume, and accounted for close to 75% of the total industry share in 2017 with a CAGR of over 5% in the coming few years

Mini sand blasting machines are inherently portable and can be deployed for household tasks such as rust removal, cleaning mill scale, repairing and paint removal. Increasing substitution of manual labor for performing domestic tasks is expected to boost the growth from 2018 to 2025.

Sandblasting Machines Market, By Product

The sandblasting machines market is segmented on the basis of blasting type as portable and stationary. Based on revenue, stationary segment held approximately USD 220 million of the of the overall sandblasting machine market share.
