Market outlook of the global refractory products market
Refractories are construction materials that act as heat-resistant walls, coatings, or linings to protect units from oxidation, corrosion, erosion, and heat damage. These materials are widely used in the steel, non-ferrous metals, glass, power, cement, petrochemicals, and waste incineration industries. As a result, the refractory products market is expected to multiply and post a CAGR of close to 4% during the forecast period.
As of 2014, APAC, Europe, and the Americas lead the global refractory materials market, with APAC contributing the largest market share of over 70%. This growth in the APAC region is due to high growth in the construction, mining, and manufacturing industries in developing countries, namely, China, India, and Indonesia. The growth in the manufacturing and infrastructure industries have increased the need for iron, steel, and cement production, thus boosting the demand for heat-resistant refractory materials for their construction purposes. In 2014, China accounted for almost 60% of the total cement production, followed by India.
Segmentation of the refractory products market by form type
- Bricks and others
- Monolithic
Bricks and other refractory materials dominate the market by form type, accounting for a market share of close to 59% in 2014. The increasing demand for refractory materials in downstream manufacturing, involving processing of materials collected during the upstream stage into a finished product and energy production industries drive the bricks and other refractories market.
Segmentation of the refractory products market by material type
- Clay and others
- Non-clay
Clay and other refractory material varieties account for over 61% of the market share and is expected to retain its leadership throughout the forecast period. The APAC region holds the largest demand for clay refractories, wherein the high growth is supported by rapid infrastructure and industrial development, especially in China and India.
Refractory products market segmentation by end-user
- Iron and steel
- Non-metallic materials
- Other metals
- Others
Iron and steel is the key end-user industry of refractory products. Refractory materials are used in air and process gas heaters, reformers, and shaft furnaces of the iron and steel industry. Also, the steel industry experiences an increasing demand in future, thereby leading to continuous demand for refractory materials used in its production process.
Competitive landscape and key vendors
The global refractory material market is highly competitive with the presence of well-established international as well as local players. The existence of robust competition coupled with high price sensitivity of buyers limits the growth of the market. Thus, the market growth significantly relies on the development of the steel, cement, automotive, and other metal industries.
