The global mill liners market size was valued at USD 1.92 Billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 2 Billion in 2024 to USD 3.02 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period.

Mill Liners are crucial components applicable in grinding machines to shield them from wear and tear and make grinding machines more durable for end-users. These liners aid in protecting the grinding mills and enhance the process by boosting the machine's efficiency.

Grinding machines find extensive application across diverse sectors, including mining, metal, cement, power, and oil and gas industries, considerably spurring the market growth. Furthermore, rapid urbanization and infrastructure development across developing nations and growing populations are further surging the growth of the cement and oil and gas industries, boosting the installation of grinding machines and ultimately creating a huge positive impact on the market share. 

Strong demand for minerals across process and manufacturing industries are all spurring the mining activities in different geographical regions. According to World Mining Data 2022, China solely contributed to the production of 31 different commodities, including ferrous metals and industrial minerals, catering to one-fourth of the total mining production in 2020. Supportive government policies, increasing capital expenditure, and efficient and durable product launches by key players in the market are a few of the prominent factors propelling market growth across industries.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic negatively hindered the market. It halted production activities across manufacturing facilities except for sectors such as power and oil and gas, creating a lenient effect on the market in 2020. Post-pandemic, as the temporary lockdowns and restrictions were released, the market gained its position and is anticipated to show steady market growth over the forecast period.

End-users are consistently demanding high-performing and energy-efficient liners in order to reduce operating costs, directing significant investment in research and development activities. For instance, Metso expanded its mill lining portfolio by introducing Skega Life, which is sustainable and high-performance with up to 25% longer wear life.
