By form, the unshaped refractories segment is expected to be the larger contributor to the market growth during the forecast period.

The growth of the segment is mainly attributed to the demand from the cement, glass, and ceramic industries. Unshaped refractories are mostly preferred by manufacturers than shaped refractories. These are widely used by manufacturers as the unshaped refractories are easy to use and have applications in various end-use industries.

The growing glass and ceramic industries are expected to drive the market for acidic & neutral refractories during the forecast period.

The growth of the segment is mainly attributed to the high usage in cement, glass, and ceramic industry. Both acidic & neutral and basic refractories have their largest market in APAC due to increase in infrastructural developments to keep pace with the mounting industrialization taking place in the region. Basic refractories are more widely used owing to their high resistance to corrosive reactions with chemically basic slags, dust, and fumes at elevated temperatures.
