World Refractories to 2016 - Demand and Sales Forecasts, Market Share, Market Size, Market Leaders

World Refractories to 2016 - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

Global refractory demand will rise 3.4 percent annually through 2016 to 46.3 million metric tons. Sales will grow the fastest in developing areas, reflecting the ongoing shift in heavy industry production to countries with low cost structures. The iron and steel market will remain dominant, based on a pickup in steel output.

This study analyzes the 39.2 million metric ton world refractory industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by market (e.g., iron and steel, nonferrous metals, nonmetallic minerals), form (bricks and shapes, monolithic), material (clay, nonclay), world region and for 23 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 51 industry competitors, including RHI, Vesuvius, and Magnesita Refratários.
