Market Growth Drivers

  • Increasing demand from nuclear energy industry to drive market growth

The cutting tools industry is likely to grow substantially owing to the increasing demand from the industrial market in the coming years and the rising usage of cutting tools in activities related to manufacturing. The development in the industrial sector is likely to drive the cutting tools industry. The need for cutting tools is expected to rise with the increasing demand from the metal market. The prime factor responsible for driving the market growth is the rising demand for these tools in the construction, aerospace & defense, and automotive industries.

As one of the hardest known materials, boron carbide is likely to be produced by a range of manufacturers refining their processes in order to achieve high boron concentration and purity. Sales are likely to grow in the upcoming years by increasing demand for abrasives for lapping & polishing, water jet cutting, grit blasting, and slurry pumping nozzles.

However, there are some obstacles being witnessed in the industry, such as interference in the supply chain, logistical issues, government obligations & regulations, border problems, export restrictions that have a direct impact on commodity supply and prices, and others.

Boron Carbide Market: Segmentation Analysis

The global boron carbide market is segmented based on type, application, grade, and region.

Based on type, the global market segments are powder, grain, and paste. The powder segment is likely to hold a significant market share, owing to the rising use of boron carbide in wear-resistant and blasting nozzles production. Furthermore, owing to its large neutron-absorbing characteristic, boron carbide is used in both powdered and solid forms as shield & control rods in nuclear reactors. This factor is likely to augment the growth of the boron carbide market in the nuclear segment. Additionally, boron carbide also has high hardness owing to which it is an extensively used material in making sandblasting nozzle systems.

Based on application, the global market segments are abrasive, nozzles, and armor. Abrasive held a significant share of revenue, owing to the rising abrasive-grade boron powder usage in ultrasonic drilling of semi-precious stones, glass, and ceramics plate production. It provides sharp angles at all corners, which offers contour fidelity, with higher dimensional stability. The growth of abrasive grade is also supported by rising use in lapping, polishing, and grinding applications combined with huge demand from the defense, which will drive further the share of the boron carbide market.
