Sandblasting media market applications include the use of abrasives to cut, roughen, smooth, clean or polish surfaces, or to remove material to modify surface dimensions or shapes. In addition, these abrasive particles are also used in coated and bonded forms for several applications including polishing, cutting, surface finishing, and grinding. Industries such as construction, automotive, aerospace and industrial are the major end-use areas. 

In the automotive industry, this technique is majorly used in coating and paint spraying for surface cleaning and improving anti-corrosion ability and adhesion. Growing emphasis on improved manufacturing processes will prove beneficial to sandblasting media market revenue, since it not only requires higher usage per unit, but also correspondingly impacts demand for value-added higher priced products. 

China abrasive blasting media market is among the largest regional segments due to considerable demand across application areas. Health hazards associated with silica as an abrasive material is expected to hamper industry demand. Regulatory bodies such as National Institute of Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have formed guidelines addressing many aspects of abrasive blasting including parameters such as proper airline length, and quality of breathing air provided to the abrasive blasting respirator.
