Global Refractories by Region, Market, Form and Material, 4th Edition
Published: January 31, 2018 Content info: 292 Pages
Description

Growth in refractory demand is expected to accelerate around the globe due to better performance in key industries where refractories are used. After declining slightly between 2011 and 2016, demand for refractories used in iron and steel production will rebound. The gains in this market will be concentrated in China, where refractory suppliers are fragmented and foreign producers have relatively low penetration. In China and other developing markets, the product mix is evolving to include more technologically advanced products, particularly monolithic refractories. Global refractory demand is forecast to advance 2.4% per year in volume terms through 2021.

Global Refractory Markets answers these questions and more:

  • How will shifting global patterns of heavy industry affect regional refractory demand?
  • Which countries represent the fastest growing market opportunities for high value refractories?
  • How has refractory usage been affected by advances in manufacturing processes?
