Sustainability Concerns Drive Sales of 100% Epoxy-based Crusher Backing Materials: Fact.MR

crusher backing materials market

Fact.MR’s extensive study on the crusher backing materials market projects a positive sales outlook for 2021 over 2020, as construction, mining and infrastructure projects rebound in the post pandemic period. While short-term growth appears gradual, long-term forecast points to a steady trajectory for the period 2021-2031. Manufacturers are bound to discover significant expansion opportunities across emerging economies.

As urbanization expands, demand for public and private infrastructure has reached new heights. According to Global Infrastructure Outlook, worldwide infrastructure development is expected to reach US$ 94 trillion until 2040, contributing nearly 3.5% of the global GDP. Hence, crusher backing materials are poised to experience enhanced uptake, with prominent players introducing a slew of innovative and technologically advanced products. In 2019, for instance, Sandvik AB enhanced its 800i cone crusher series by launching the CH830i, CH840i and CS840i high-performing crushers equipped with an Automation and Connectivity Systems (ACS) standard. These systems are connected to an online portal which can be accessed by managers to streamline operations.

Mounting sustainability concerns have prompted construction giants to adopt epoxy-resin based crusher backing compounds. Prominent manufacturer ESCO is an active player, offering the ESCOBAKTM 100% solid epoxy compounds for backing wear liners in cone crushers, helping eliminate gaps which weaken wearpart life. Likewise, FLSmidth’s Linebacker® crusher liner epoxy is suitable for standard, heavy duty and cold weather crushers respectively. In addition, the company also offers the Bushing Lock range. All the aforementioned product lines are OEM recommended.

“Increasing frequency of construction and infrastructure projects in the wake of large-scale urbanization is prompting leading crushing backing materials manufacturers to deepen penetration across the emerging markets in Asia-Pacific. This is anticipated to generate fresh revenue ecosystems in forthcoming years,” concludes the Fact.MR analyst.
