Refractories Market Opportunities & Forecasts, 2017–2022

Market Scenario

Globally, the market for Refractories is growing at a CAGR of 4.02% during forecasted period (2016-2022). Refectories is a material that is heat resistant, it provides linings for the heat temperature furnace, reactors and other processing units. Refractories are made of natural and manmade materials, usually nonmetallic or combinations of other compound and minerals.

Refractories material which can resist high temperature without undergoing physical and chemical changes while remaining in contact with molten slag, metal and gases. It is necessary to produce range of refractory materials with different properties to meet range of processing conditions. The refractory range incorporates fired, chemically and carbon bonded materials that are made in different combinations and shapes for diversified applications

Application sector is segmented into steel, cement, glass, non-ferrous and others. The steel industry is the largest application of refractories globally. Refractories has the characteristics   which are lightweight, high temperature sustainability, and robustness, therefore they are ideal for linings and insulation of the high temperature furnaces used in steel industry. In-addition, the increasing infrastructure and construction activities in the developing economies such as India, Brazil, Mexico, Russia, and other economies worldwide are contributing abundantly to the steel consumption and henceforth increasing refractories usage.
