Fri, 27 November 2020 3:23

Abrasive is any material that is used for precision grinding, rubbing, and shaping, among others. It is also used for polishing the materials. Abrasives are of different hardness. The hardest natural abrasive material available on the earth is diamond, which is also known as the super abrasive material and is used mainly for precision grinding and cutting.

Along with the construction industry, the demand for furniture and interior design increases at a fast pace in hotels, residential buildings, corporate and government offices, comfortability, and aesthetics. Therefore, the increasing demand for furniture and interior designing is anticipated to propel the global abrasives market as abrasives are extensively used in the furniture and interior designing sectors to polish, rub, and cut different materials.

According to Statista, in 2018, furniture and home furnishings stores' sales were around USD 117 billion in the U.S. The increasing furniture and interior designing demand require more abrasives for different operations, including precision, polishing, cutting, shaping, and rubbing.
