Rough and tough: Recovery in construction and manufacturing markets will smooth industry growth
Abrasive & Sandpaper Manufacturing in the US
Rough around the edges
Over the past five years, the industry experienced significant declines in demand as a result of the heavy blow the recession dealt to downstream markets. An unprecedented slump in the manufacturing, construction and mining sectors caused industry revenue to contract; however, recovery in these industries is anticipated to revive demand for abrasives manufacturers. Despite this positive upswing, industry growth will be limited by increasing penetration from low-cost imports.
