The global refractories market size was USD 28.72 Billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 36.17 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 3.89% between 2017 and 2022. By volume, its market size is estimated to grow from 46.28 Million tons in 2016 to 56.83 million tons by 2022, at a CAGR of 3.45% between 2017 and 2022. In this study, 2016 has been considered the base year and 2022 as the forecast year to estimate the market sizes of refractories.

The objectives of the study are:

  • To define and segment the global refractories market by form, alkalinity, end-use industry, and region
  • To estimate and forecast the global refractories market by form and end-use industry in terms of value at country-level in different regions, namely, North America, Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Central & Eastern Europe, South America, and Middle East & Africa
  • To estimate and forecast the market size of refractories, in terms of value (USD million), and volume (million tons), at global and regional-levels
  • To identify and analyze the key growth drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges influencing the global refractories market
  • To analyze recent market developments and competitive strategies, such as expansions, product launches/developments, and mergers & acquisitions and to draw a competitive landscape of the global refractories market
  • To strategically identify and profile the key market players and analyze their core competencies in each type and application of the global refractories market

Different secondary sources, such as company websites, encyclopedia, directories, and database such as Hoovers, Bloomberg, Businessweek, Factiva, and OneSource have been used to identify and collect information useful for this extensive, commercial study of the global refractories market. Primary sources, including experts from related industries, have been interviewed to verify and collect critical information and assess prospects of the market.

The global refractories market is projected to reach USD 36.17 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 3.89% between 2017 and 2022. By volume, it is projected to reach 56.83 Million tons by 2022, at a CAGR of 3.5% between 2017 and 2022. Increasing number of infrastructural development projects in emerging economies such as China, India, and Brazil and high growth rate witnessed by the non-metallic minerals industry are the key factors driving the global refractories market.

Unshaped refractories was the largest segment of the global refractories market, by form in 2016. Unshaped refractories are replacing conventional refractories at a much faster rate in many applications that require high-temperature resistance.
