World Refractories

As Quoted In Ceramic Tech Today

Global demand for refractories is projected to rise 5.3 percent annually through 2014. China will remain the largest national market and continue to comprise the majority of global demand. Above-average growth will also occur in India. Demand gains for bricks and shapes will lag those of monolithics.

This study analyzes the 31.5 million metric ton world refractory industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by market (e.g., iron and steel, other metals, nonmetallic minerals), form, material, world region and for 23 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 47 industry competitors, including RHI, Cookson Group and Magnesita.
