The band saw blades market in Middle East & Africa is expected to grow from US$ 104.46 million in 2022 to US$ 114.67 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 1.6% from 2022 to 2028.
Band saw blades find major applications in the woodworking and metalworking industries, owing to the growing demand for coarse tooth blades (2 or 3 TPI) for resawing and cutting thicker materials and diamond blades or ferrous blades for metal-cutting.Important processes in the woodworking industry include harvesting and processing of wood and other forest resources, logging, woodworking, and pulp and paper processing.
Enterprises in the industry produce finished products used by the construction, agriculture, and food industries.Band saw blades are used to carry out primary wood processing.
Advancements in the metal processing techniques have augmented the needs for equipment and tools that dampen vibration and noise.Comfort and ease of handling the equipment are an important consideration in metal processing.
Therefore, there is an increased demand for durable band saw blades with longevity to prevent failure and downtime. Rise in the CNC machine manufacturing process bolsters the growth of the industrial metalworking industry. The advent of CNC technology, technological advancements, and innovative developments of products, and increasing demand for power tools and robotic woodworking machines are among the other factors fueling the growth of the band saw blades market. In addition, rising proliferation of advanced technologies propels the sales of band saw blades in wood and metal work industries. Market players with extensive experience in the woodworking industry are working closely with woodworking companies to develop, modernize, and automate their products and implement systems to check product quality and production diagnostics. The industry for the furniture segment witnesses a significant growth. South Africa is one of the major exporters of forest-related products, including pulp, paper, and solid wood. Presence of several forestry companies, as well as thousands of commercial timber and small-scale farmers, represent over 90% of South Africa’s forestry industry. Thus, the country is witnessing increasing demands for band saw blades to process raw logs into primary, secondary, and tertiary wood products for home consumption and export. As a result, the regional woodworking industry players are upgrading their existing machineries to add value to their wood products. Furthermore, the woodworking & metalworking industry is characterized by the increasing activities of R&D by major players, development of advanced machines, and technological up-gradation of current products, which creates demand for band saw blades. In addition, the growing use of IoT in woodworking machines to enable communication between objects and internet-enabled devices propels the growth of the band saw blades market.
