Shaped refractories: The largest form of refractories

Owing to the ability to withstand high temperatures, high mechanical strength, high abrasion resistance, and sensible porosity, shaped refractories are used in various industries, majorly in glass, iron & steel, and cement industries. The major applications of these refractories are, as linings in high temperature furnaces, boilers, nuclear reactors, cement kilns, and rotators used in various manufacturing industries such as iron & steel, glass, cement and many more among others, which are expected to drive the market. The growing infrastructural development all across the globe is expected to significantly boost the consumption of shaped refractories in coming future.

Iron & Steel: The largest end-use industry for refractories

The iron & steel industry is the largest end-use industry of refractories globally. As refractories are characterized with lightweight, high temperature sustainability, and robustness, therefore they are ideal for linings and insulation of the high temperature furnaces used in iron & steel industry. Additionally, 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.

Asia-Pacific: The largest market for refractories

Asia-Pacific is the global forerunner in refractories market, in terms of value and volume, and the trend is expected to continue till 2020. The countries in this region such as China and India are the fastest-growing markets for refractories, due to significantly increasing usage of refractories in iron & steel, cement, glass, non-ferrous metals, and other industries. South East Asia, with countries including Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, is also a rapidly growing market for refractories. This growth is mainly due to the increasing demand for cement, iron & steel, cement and glass mainly in construction, automotive and other manufacturing sectors in Asia-Pacific.

Major players such as Corning Incorporated (U.S.), CoorsTek Incorporated (U.S.), Magnesita Refratarios S.A (Brazil), Morgan Advanced Materials Plc (U.K.), RHI AG (Austria), Saint-Gobain S.A. (France), Shinagawa Refractories Co. Ltd (Japan), and Vesuvius Plc. (U.K.) have been profiled in the research report.
