"Growth in infrastructural developments in developing countries including China, India (IN), and Brazil (BR) and high increase rate witnessed by the non-metallic minerals sector is driving the increase of the overall refractories market"

The overall refractories market is estimated to grow ~$36.2B by 2022, at a compound annual growth rate of ~3.9 percent between 2017 and 2022. By quantity, it is projected to extend 56.83 million tons by 2022, at a compound annual growth rate of ~3.5 percent between 2017 and 2022. The sector is attesting increase due to high paced infrastructural developments in emerging economies including China, India (IN), and Brazil (BR) and high rise rate witnessed by the non-metallic minerals market. Increasing demand for high-grade refractories from iron & steel industries is also an important factor driving the refractories market. Restrictions on the use of refractories due to increasing environment concerns, monopoly of China over raw material supply, and fluctuating iron ore prices are the top factors restraining and challenging the rise of the overall refractories market.

"Unshaped refractories: The quickest-rising segment of refractories market, by form"

Unshaped refractories is intended to be the quickest-increasing form segment during the outlook period (2017-2022). The quick increase of unshaped refractories segment is assigned to the continuous R&D activities taking place in this industry segment. Furthermore, availability of unshaped refractories in various compositions according to the requirements of distinct end-use markets makes it the most preferred and quickest increasing form segment of refractories.

"Acidic & Neutral refractories: The quickest-rising segment of refractories market, by alkalinity"

The acidic & neutral refractories segment is forecasted to be the quickest-growing segment, by alkalinity during the estimate period. Their low cost and ability to withstand high temperatures with super quality thermal shock resistance boosts the increase of this segment. Due to the increasing automotive and construction industries, the industry demand for acidic & neutral refractories is also anticipated to escalate during the outlook period.

"Glass: The quickest-rising segment of refractories market, by end-use sector"

Glass is forecasted to be the quickest-increasing application segment of the overall refractories market, by end-user market during the estimate period. Extensive use of refractories including high-purity alumina and zirconia based refractory materials in the glass sector, especially in furnaces, is expected to drive its market.

The growing use of high-quality glass in residential and commercial construction especially in Asia-Pacific area and high increase rate witnessed by automotive sectors in countries including Germany, the U.S.A, Japan (JP), and China (CN) is predicted to push the glass market global.

"Asia-Pac: The quickest increasing market for refractories, by area"

The Asia Pacific (APAC) area is the quickest developing market for refractories, in terms of both value and quantity during the outlook period. Massive economic expansion in some of the Asia-Pacific countries, such as china (CN) and India (IN), rise in infrastructural development due to escalating population, and increasing urbanization and industrialization are boosting refractory consumption across the territory.
