Global Refractories
Published: March 4, 2020 Content info: 261 Pages
Description

Global demand for refractories is forecast to rise 2.2% per year through 2023 to 51.6 million metric tons valued at $53.0 billion. Refractory demand is closely tied to global patterns of heavy industry, particularly production of steel, nonferrous metals, cement, glass, and petrochemicals. Going forward, market increases will be fueled by:

  • an acceleration of iron and steel production in developing economies
  • strong industrial expansion and construction activity in economically developing areas
  • improved prospects for heavy industry in developed economies
  • increasing use of monolithics and specialty precast shapes in developing markets to improve performance and reduce long-term costs

More trends and forecasts are included in the new study ‘Global Refractories’.
