Refractories Market Analysis, Size, Share, Growth and Trends by Forecast to 2023

Refractories Market Information- by Form (Shaped and Unshaped), by type (Fireclay, Silica Brick, High Alumina, Magnesite, and Others) by Application (Steel, Cement, Glass, Non-Ferrous and others), and by Region - Forecast to 2022

Market Highlights
Commenting on this report, an analyst from Market Research Future (MRFR)’s team said, “Global Refractories Market size is expected to grow at highest rate of approximately of USD 49.05 billion by 2022. Refractories are inorganic nonmetallic material which can withstand high temperature without
Undergoing physico – 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.

The diversification on steel products and their cleanliness requirement in recent years have increased the demand for high quality refractory. Steelmaking requires high temperatures of the order of 1600 degree centigrade. In-addition steelmaking handles high temperature phases like molten steel, slag and hot gases. These phases are chemically reactive; refractory materials are required to produces steels. High quality refractory at a cheaper cost is the main requirement because cost of refractory adds into the cost of product. Refractory materials have a crucial impact on the cost and quality of steel products.

The refractories market can be categorized into application. Based on the application of refractories available, the market can be categorized into steel, cement, glass, non-ferrous and others.. Refractories are utilized in linings of furnaces, incinerators and reactors in many of the industries. Refractories find their applications in lining edifice of shapeless products, mass-produced rudiments and bricks in the industries. Iron and steel was the largest end-user industry for refractories.

The growth of applications industries and the increasing demand for high performance furnaces has been driving the global refractories market. However, due to increasing apparatus competence, the refractory intake from the end-user companies has been seeing a plummeting trend. The expansion of iron and steel companies in terms of acquisition of new raw material sites or increasing the number of processing plants are generating new demands for the refractories market.
