The advantages provided by cubic boron nitrates abrasive tools over the tools made of diamond have surfaced as the key factor behind the substantial growth of the Although diamond is the hardest material used for industrial operations, such as turning, cutting, drilling, boring, and grinding, it has several technological limitations. Cubic boron nitrates, on the other hand, can overcome the issues faced by diamond and maintain its hardness at room temperature as well as over a wide range of temperatures, making them sturdy and more dependable.
With the increasing demand for cubic boron nitrates across the world, the opportunity in this market is estimated to rise at a CAGR of 7.10% from 2016 and 2024, increasing from US$531.3 mn in 2015 to US$978.9 mn by the end 2024. Although the market looks promising at present, the expensive production process may create obstacles in the growth trajectory of this market in the years to come.
Demand for Inserts to Remain Strong
Inserts, wheels, mesh, and powder are the main products available in the global market for cubic boron nitrates. Among these, the demand for inserts is higher than others and is anticipated to remain so over the next few years. The increasing application of inserts in the metal processing industry, owing to the rising requirement of processes, such as cutting, grinding, and finishing for products in the automotive, medical, and the aerospace sectors is expected to boost the demand for inserts across the world in the near future.
As a result of the increasing utilization of inserts in cutting and grinding applications, the demand for wheels is likely to decline noticeably over the next few years. Among applications, the demand for cubic boron nitrates products is significantly high in the cutting and grinding segment.
Asia Pacific to Remain on Top
Latin America, North America, the Middle East and Africa, Europe, and Asia Pacific are the key geographical segments of the global market for cubic boron nitrates. Asia Pacific led this market in 2015 with a share of 35%. Analysts expect this regional market to remain leading over the next few years, thanks to the presence of a large number of market players and the extensive demand for cubic boron nitrates in various Asian economies, China, India, and Japan. The significant growth in the automotive, medical, and the aerospace industries observed in developing countries will also support the Asia Pacific market for cubic boron nitrates in the years to come.
Among other regional markets, Europe is likely to remain witnessing a steady rise, whereas, Latin America and the Middle East and Africa are expected to experience moderate growth due to the dearth of manufacturing facilities and their export-oriented economies over the forthcoming years.
