Recently, a report concerning the 2013 international flap discs market situation has been made by iAbrasive, a professional online trading platform focusing on the abrasives industry. According to the report (published on http://www.iabrasive.com/articles/International-Flap-Discs-Market-Analysis-in-2013-Given-by-iAbrasive), the market consumption of flap discs in US and Germany totaled 620 million pieces in 2013. It was also pointed out that the products’ sizes of 115mm, 125mm and 180mm sold the best.
Generally, important economy development zones, such as North America, Europe, South America, China, South and Central Asia, consumed the most flap discs. Benefiting from a steady growth of GDP, China’s flap discs have witnessed a rapid increase in the market share.
A flap disc is well-known by its outstanding grinding and polishing performance. In recent years, with the favorable development of coated abrasives, flap discs are endowed with the following advantages:
**higher grinding effects
**low working noises
**less damage to the surface of the workpieces
**reliable guarantee of workmen’s security
As mentioned above, the flap discs industry grows faster in developed countries. The reasons can be explored as following:
**Overseas products are more professional, diversified and serialized. The most competitive producers of flap discs come from countries like Germany, Italy, US and Turkey, not China. During decades of development, they have formed their own brands in the international market competition.
**Continuous innovation. Professional producers in these developed countries will keep studying the application trends and developing new ones to meet various demands, for instance, coarse grinding for stainless steel and fine polishing for electronics.
**Effective overseas market expansion strategy. Report indicates that more than 67% flap discs manufactured in Germany, Italy and Turkey have been exported to the overseas markets.
iAbrasive indicates that flap disc still enjoys a promising prospect. Flap discs manufacturers should keep up with the times and develop more sales channels, such as network marketing. In addition, efforts on brand-building should also be maid.
