The market for abrasive blasting nozzle is expected to grow at a rapid pace throughout the estimated period from 2020 to 2027.
Abrasive blasting nozzle is a device used in abrasive blasting to accelerate air and an abrasive blasting mixture over a surface that needs repair and subsequent protection from corrosion. The abrasive and air mixture is discharged from the end of the hose through the blast nozzle. Moreover, the length and tapered design of the nozzle determines the pattern and velocity of the mixture exiting the nozzle. These nozzles are made up of materials like tungsten carbide, aluminum, boron carbide, and silicon nitride. These materials are especially used to withstand the force and pressure at the outlet tip's nozzle while spraying pressurized air and abrasive at high velocity and pressure on an area with defects or corrosion.
The rising demand for abrasive blasting machines for performing various tasks including surface preparation, restoration, and graffiti removal are supporting the market growth. These nozzles help in reducing the overall prices and benefit the end-users in terms of optimizing the utilization of abrasives, achieving appropriate blasting patterns, and using the compressed air efficiently. The continued adoption of blasting machines that can be operated using a remote control to comply with the guidelines drafted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is further bolstering the market growth. The demand is expected to increase in near future owing to the increased usage across commercial and defense applications. Furthermore, the untapped market is further projected to create potential opportunities over the forecast period.
The abrasive blasting nozzle market is segmented on the basis of nozzle type, material, end-use, bore size, and geography. Based on nozzle type, the market is segmented across the venturi nozzle, straight bore nozzle, wide throat nozzle, and others. By material, the market is divided into carbide tips, tungsten carbide, boron carbide, silicon carbide, ceramic tips, and steel tips. Additionally, the end-user segment includes automotive, construction, marine (shipyard), and others. On the basis of bore size, the market is divided into 5/16 inch, 3/8 inch, 7/16 inch, and others. By geography, the market is divided across North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. Additionally, the aforementioned regions are further segregated into the major countries of the respective regions.
Asia Pacific region having dominance over the Abrasive Blasting Nozzle Market
Asia Pacific accounted for the maximum share in terms of revenue in 2019. The region is accounted for a significant share owing to its major economies including Japan, China, and India. The rapidly developing automotive and construction sector of the developing economies of the region is supporting the demand for abrasive blasting nozzles in the respective sector.
