The global heavy-duty wear protection market is segmented, based on material, into the following categories:

  • Ceramic
  • Rubber
  • Steel
  • Plastic
  • Others (asbestos, polymers, etc.)

As of 2016, the ceramic segment dominated the overall heavy-duty wear protection market worldwide. The ceramic coating offers numerous advantages since ceramics act as good electric and heat insulators. Hence, these are extensively used in industries such as power plants, oil and gas, and metal industries. In addition, ceramic coating aids in preventing abrasion and corrosion. Therefore, owing to the merits offered by ceramic wear protection, demand is expected to dominate the segment throughout the forecast period.

Steel trailed the ceramic segment in terms of revenue in the overall heavy-duty wear protection market by material segment as of 2016. Steel has been used for protective enclosures and frames to protect heavy machines. Steel has the capability to withstand heavy shocks, corrosion, and abrasion and is thus preferred over several other materials for heavy-duty wear protection. Consequently, the demand for steel is expected to grow consistently during the forecast period of 2017 to 2025.

The global heavy-duty wear protection market is segmented, based on end-use industry, into the following categories:

  • Automotive and Transportation
  • Oil and gas
  • Power Plants
  • Metal Industry
  • Construction and Mining
  • Others (Wood, Pulp and Paper, Food and Beverages, Agriculture, etc.)

As of 2016, the oil and gas end-use segment dominated the overall heavy-duty wear protection market worldwide. With a consistent rise in the demand for oil, more oil and gas rigs are being set up across the globe. Heavy-duty wear protection methods are widely used to protect the equipment and machines used on oil and gas rigs from harsh working conditions. The demand for heavy-duty wear protection is expected to grow even further with the growth in the oil and gas sector in the following years.

In terms of revenue, the metal industries end-use segment trailed the oil and gas segment in the overall heavy-duty wear protection market in 2016. The metals industry has witnessed significant growth over the past few decades. The machines involved in these industries are subject to hostile conditions with extreme heat and abrasion, among others. The industry has incorporated different techniques and materials to prevent the premature breakdown or decommissioning of heavy and expensive machines. Consequently, with the consistent rise in the metal industries, the demand for heavy-duty wear protection equipment is also expected to escalate perpetually throughout the forecast period of 2017 to 2025.
