Global Industrial Garnet Market: Overview
The global industrial garnet market is growing at a stellar pace, majorly due to advancements in sandblasting procedures across the manufacturing sector. The widescale application of industrial garnet has played an integral role in creating a boatload of possibilities within the global market. Moreover, increased demand for gemstones has also paved way for increase use of garnet. The industrial sector is characterised by rapid demand for several important materials and chemicals. Garnet is one such material type that needs to be used across a variety of industrial processes. Furthermore, the use of garnet corresponds to a particular stage within the process of manufacturing, majorly in industries such as automotive, aerospace, and electronics.
Transparency Market Research (TMR) added to its repository a syndicate report on the global industrial garnet market. The global industrial garnet market can be segmented on the basis of product type, application, and geography. Based on application, the use of industrial garnet in water jet cutting and filtration has garnered momentum in recent times. Besides, abrasive blasting is another key end-use of industrial garnet.
The presence of a seamless industry for finetuning the surface of industrially-manufactured goods has paved way for key market developments.
A recent research conducted by scholars from Boston College finds key evidence related to the historic presence of garnet in rock samples found on a Greek Island. The researchers studied large garnet crystals to understand the development of garnet over millions of years. The new research is expected to generate interest amongst industrial users of garnet. Furthermore, discovery of a new site for procuring garnet shall aid the growth of the global market.
Beach Minerals Company, Opta Minerals Inc., and Zircon Mineral Co. are amongst the leading suppliers of industrial garnet. The companies have made sound contributions to the growth of the global industrial garnet market. These vendors are projected to engage in core research to find new and more productive areas with garnet deposits.
Advancements in Automobile Manufacturing
Finishing of automotive parts can be initiated with the help of industrial garnet. Furthermore, the surface of ships and vessels is also smoothened using garnet. Therefore, the total demand for industrial garnet is slated to increase as the aforementioned sectors attract key investments from multiple entities. Use of industrial garnet in water-filtration is also a key standpoint from the perspective of quantifying market growth. The abrasive properties of industrial garnet have been the most distinct driver of demand across the market. Finishing of bare wood to make furniture is also associated with the use of industrial garnet.
Australia and India Emerge as Key Suppliers
The abundant availability of garnet across the coasts of Australia and India has generated humongous demand within the global industrial garnet market. India is characterised by the presence of a large industrial sector, spanning into multiple areas of specialization. Ready availability of industrial garnet in the region has fortified the existing industries in India. Besides, Australia and India possess robust export capabilities that help these regions in supplying garnet to other industrially significant regions. Owing to the factors stated above, the global industrial garnet market is set to attract voluminous revenues in the following years.
