Increasing population is ramping up the demand for living spaces, thereby driving the bonded abrasive materials use in the construction sector including residential, commercial, and infrastructural activities.

- According to a study by Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the global construction industry is expected to value USD 8 trillion by 2030, primarily driven by China, India, and the United States region.
- Globally, Asia-Pacific has the largest construction market, followed by India, China, and various Southeast Asian countries. In India, the government has initiated projects, such as 100 smart cities and ‘Housing for All by 2022 which are expected to immensely drive the residential construction market in India through the forecast period.
