As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Sakshi Bhoyar and Vineet Pandey “Global Abrasive Blasting Equipment Market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period 2022-2030. Rising adoption of abrasive blasting equipment in numerous residential applications including cleaning driveways, paths, sidewalks, patios, pools, and woodworks is driving the market.

Abrasive blasting refers to the procedure of forcibly forcing a high-pressure stream of abrasive material against a surface for removing surface contaminants and shaping a surface (roughening a smooth surface or smoothening a rough surface). Several variations of the process such as sand blasting, shot blasting, bead blasting, and soda blasting are available. PPE is essential for all abrasive blasting processes to protect and control the working environment. Growing adoption of abrasive blasting equipment in residential and industrial applications is fueling the market.

Key factors that are anticipated to fuel the demand for the global abrasive blasting equipment market during the forecast period, due to growing demand for abrasive blasting equipment in the automobile sector and other industries and emergence of robotic abrasive blasting machines. Conversely, the heath-related risk is hampering the growth of the market. Technological advancement in the existing technologies is creating lucrative opportunities for market players.
