Refractory Market Overview

Refractories are inorganic nonmetallic substances that can withstand high temperatures while maintaining contact with metal, molten slag, and gases without suffering physical or chemical changes. To fulfill a variety of processing conditions, a variety of refractory materials with varied qualities must be manufactured. Refractories are beneficial in building applications with specific high-temperature surfaces, primarily in furnaces or boilers, because their structure decreases heat losses.

Refractory Market Trends

Refractories must be thermal shock resistant, have particular ranges of thermal conductivity, be chemically inert, and also have a coefficient of heat extension dependent on the operating environment. The most essential ingredients utilized in the production of refractories are silica, alumina, and magnesia. Calcium oxide is another common oxide seen in refractories. Fire clays are commonly used in refractories. In emerging countries, the increase in infrastructure development is the primary driver of the refractory market growth. Furthermore, the non-metallic minerals business is expected to grow rapidly due to increased demand for high-grade refractories from the steel and iron industries. Furthermore, rising environmental concerns, as well as China’s monopoly over raw material suppliers, are impeding market expansion. Furthermore, the possibility for market participants resides in the recycling of refractory materials.

Rising Demand for Unshaped Refractory Materials

Unshaped refractory materials are monolithic refractories that have no particular shape. The cost-effective and labor-saving unshaped refractory materials are installed with minimal effort. Furthermore, rapid implementation of these considerably decreases the downtime of a given application, which contributes to the market’s growth. Moreover, increased demand in the cement, glass, and ceramic sectors is boosting demand for unshaped refractories due to their effective and substantial use. However, the existence of a wide range of compositions and morphologies is projected to boost global demand.

Increasing Demand for High-Grade Refractories from the Iron and Steel Industry

The steel industry’s primary material is refractories. It is utilized in the internal linings of steel and iron furnaces, thermal furnaces, as well as vessels for keeping and conveying metal & slag. The iron and steel sector utilizes around 75% of all refractories produced globally and has a very fast consumption rate. Furthermore, the global consumption of refractories is estimated to be 10 kg per tonne of liquid steel created, with this amount fluctuating depending on the country. Furthermore, based on the unit processors they are employed in, the operational life of refractories can be evaluated in both years and days. Since refractory products have varying properties and structures are placed during the steel process of production, it occurs in both integrated and small mill facilities. Furthermore, the materials used in the building of refractories can endure temperatures ranging from 260 to 1850ºC. As a result, refractories are in high demand in the iron and steel sector.

Refractory Applications in Industry

  • Refractories are primarily installed on cracking furnaces, stacks, catalytic cracking units, fired heaters, hydrogen reformers, ammonia primary and secondary reformers, coke calciners, utility boilers, air heaters, sulfur furnaces, and ducting in non-metallurgical industries.
  • The extraordinarily high melting points of common metals such as iron, nickel, & copper require furnace temperatures to be raised above 2800ºF.
  • Refractories are used in the inside linings of furnaces, reactors, kilns, and other vessels to store and transfer metal and slag. Refractory materials are thus required to withstand temperatures above and above these values.
