DUBLIN, Jan. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Corundum Market - Segmented by Variety, End-User Industry and Geography - Trends and Forecasts (2015-2020)" report to their offering.

Corundum was the first gem mineral to be synthesized in the lab by a process known today as flame fusion. A rather difficult process, flux growth, was used to synthesize gem corundum. Synthetic rubies and sapphires are presently manufactured in enormous quantities for both industrial and gem application.

Although great advancement has been made in some countries in the production of synthetic or manufactured abrasives, natural abrasives have retained their eminent place and are used extensively; this can be credited to corundum's characteristics and ease in availability. The reason for natural corundum being particularly suitable for grinding is its prominent basal cleavage that causes the crystal to break readily with a smooth flat surface at right angles to the axis of elongation through successive reductions in size unlike synthetic corundum (alumina), which has a conchoidal fracture.

The report elucidates Corundum around the world and studies its markets by variety, which includes emery, ruby, sapphire and padparadscha; and by end-user industry, jewellery, abrasive, refractory, electrical and others.
