Global Refractory Industry Report and Forecast

CW Research’s Global Refractory Industry Report and Forecast analyzes the use of refractories in the manufacture of steel (BOF and EAF), non-ferrous metals, cement, calcination of lime and a host of other high-temperature applications.

Natural and synthetic shaped (cast and pressed) refractories covered in the report are primarily products used in high-temperature furnaces / kilns, reactors and other industrial processing units typically facing usage temperatures in excess of 1000°F. The report analyzes the segment dynamics, demand by end-user segments, market size in USD, and trends in the industry.

Informed by extensive primary research, the report analyzes the major refractory markets at a country and region level, as well as industrial trends with a focus on globally leading refractory producers.

The report will provide quantitative information on key industry trends, market size (volume and value) and growth of each of the refractory segments, production volumes, end-use by refractory type and by industry, import/export of refractory material by region and major country. The study identifies past and future consumption trends and innovations, as well as challenges faced by refractory manufacturers and end users.
