Executive Summary

The global refractory market is growing steadily, but it holds immense business potential with the rapid pace of innovation and wider acceptance. Refractories, ceramic materials that are capable of withstanding high temperatures are inorganic, nonmetallic, porous and heterogeneous materials composed of thermally stable mineral aggregates, a binder phase and additives. The major consumer markets of refactoring materials are steel, iron, glass and non-ferrous metals.

The growth of the global refracting market is driven by a number of factors that include increase in crude steel production, growth in developing countries and growth in end products market. Acknowledging these factors, it could be said that the refracting business will certainly gain importance in the years to come. While in some countries (China, India, Russia, Brazil and South Africa) demand for refracting material will predominate, the demand for refracting material in developed nations will remain constant.

The increasing raw materials imports in European Union, low demand of refractory materials, technological changes and several other issues pose major challenge to the growth of this business. Major trends prevailing in the refracting market are research and development, China being the largest producer of steel and quality of raw materials.
