Refractories Market size worth over $41 Bn by 2025

  • Published Date: June 28, 2019

Refractories Market is poised to surpass USD 41 billion by 2025; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Refractories are materials which are composed from thermally stable minerals and a binder phase. They are heterogenous and porous in nature and can withstand extreme temperature in excess of 1,5000C, without undergoing any structural changes while maintaining contact with molten slag and metals. Refractories are extensively used for industrial processes, where they perform various functions such as a barrier for molten slag and the containing medium. They provide physical protection and reduce erosion of surface by keeping the medium circulated. They prevent chemical corrosion and ensure heat retention.

Monolithic refractories market is expected to witness gain of 3.9% by 2025. Monolithic are generally called unformed refractories which includes mortars, gunning mixes, castable (refractory concrete), ramming mixes, and plastics. These products are cured in place to form a monolithic, internal structure after application. They are generally used in cement, glass and ceramic industries.

Based on composition, refractories market is segmented into clay-based and nonclay-based. The market size for nonclay-based refractories was over USD 14 billion in 2018. Nonclay based refractories are starting material which includes carbonates or oxides of metals such as zirconium, aluminum and magnesium. They are mostly produced as brick and pressed shapes, though some magnesite-chrome and alumina materials are fuse-cast into molds.

Based on type, refractories market is segmented into acidic, basic, and neutral. The basic segment for refractories is anticipated to gain more than 3.5% by 2025. Basic refractories are harmed by acidic slags, but are stable to dusts, fumes, and alkaline slags at an elevated temperature. They are stable with alkaline slags and thus are preferred for furnace linings in alkaline environment.

Based on manufacturing process, refractories market is segmented into dry press process, fused cast, hand molded, formed, unformed. The dry press process segment was worth USD 7.5 Billion in 2018. This process is usually suitable for formation of simple solid shapes. They are generally suited for clays with very low plasticity. As dry press process is simple and requires low capital equipment costs, they are widely used for high volume forming process for ceramics.

Based on end-user, refractories market is segmented into iron & steel, non-metallic materials, non-ferrous metals and others. The non-ferrous metals segment was worth USD 2.8 Billion in 2018. Middle East & Africa is estimated to grow at 3.6% by 2025. Growing political stability along with massive infrastructure spending in the Middle East & Africa will play a constructive role for the growth of steel industry. This will have a positive impact on the overall refractories market.

Some of the key players in refractories market are RHI Magnesita, Krosaki Harima Corporation, Vesuvius PLC, Shinagawa refractories Co., Ltd., Saint-Gobain, Morgan Advanced Materials, CoorsTek Inc., HarbisonWalker International, Imerys, etc.
