Global Refractory Industry Report and Forecast

The “Global Refractory Industry Report and Forecast” provides an assessment of the global refractory market and projection for demand of refractories by quality and product type.

The report covers the demand for refractories in the manufacture of steel (BOF and EAF), non-ferrous metals, cement, calcination of lime and a host of other high-temperature applications.

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.

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 1,000°F. The report analyzes the segment dynamics, demand by end-user segments, market size in USD and trends in the industry.

The study sizes the market size in volume and value of specific sub-types of refractory materials, including acidic refractory (zirconia, high alumina and silicates), neutral refractories (alumina spinel, chromite) and basic refractories (dolomite, chrome-magnesia, magnesite based).

The report provides 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. Past and future consumption trends and innovations are explored, as well as challenges faced by refractory manufacturers and end users.
