World Refractories

As Quoted In Metall

Global demand for refractories will rise 3.5 percent annually through 2012. Longer term growth will be supported by the increasing use of better performing, more expensive refractories. Asia will be the fastest growing regional market, due primarily to China, the dominant consumer of refractories.

This study analyzes the 38.1 million metric ton world refractory industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by market (e.g., iron and steel, other metals, nonmetallic minerals), form, material, world region (e.g., Asia/Pacific, North America, Western Europe) and for 23 major national markets.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 47 industry competitors.
