Refractories refer to various inorganic, non-metallic, porous and heterogeneous materials that are designed to withstand high industrial temperatures and pressures. Some of the most common types of refractory materials include fireclay, high alumina minerals, silica, magnesite, chromite, etc. They are manufactured using such materials as these are resistant to mechanical and thermal stress, corrosion from solids, liquids and gases, mechanical abrasion and gas diffusion. They are used in boilers and furnaces to contain heat and protect the processing equipment from intense temperatures. They are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes that can be pressed or molded as per the required dimensions. Owing to this, they find extensive applications across various sectors, including iron and steel manufacturing, energy, chemical, non-ferrous metals, glass, cement and ceramics.
Significant growth in the steel industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. The market is further driven by rising infrastructural activities, especially in developing nations. In comparison to the traditionally used tools, refractories have higher-temperature resistance, are more convenient to install and can manufacture bricks in customized shapes. There is also a widespread adoption of unshaped refractories for various construction applications. Additionally, technological advancements and the emerging trend of recycling refractory materials for manufacturing steel are also creating a positive impact on the market. Other factors, including the growing demand for non-ferrous metals, along with the increasing utilization of aerospace, automotive, medical, electrical and construction castings, are projected to drive the market further.
