LANDON, GREATER LANDON, UK, November 9, 2023 / — The global refractories market has experienced a modest yet consistent growth trajectory, expanding from $26.55 billion in 2022 to $27.91 billion in 2023, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1%. Despite the challenges posed by the Russia-Ukraine conflict and the persistent impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the market is anticipated to continue its upward momentum, reaching $31.25 billion by 2027, with a CAGR of 2.9%.

Driving Force: Growing Demand for Iron and Steel

The significant growth in the refractories market can be attributed to the surging demand for iron and steel, primarily driven by the expansion of infrastructure development and the thriving automobile and railway industries. The increasing need for energy-efficient steel-making techniques has further propelled the demand for refractories. These vital lining materials play a crucial role in the furnace working interfaces and backup zones during the manufacturing of iron and steel. According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), steel consumption is anticipated to surge by 17% to 110 million tonnes in FY22, owing to the intensified construction activities. Hence, the mounting demand for steel and iron has become a pivotal factor driving the refractories market.

Notable Trend: Technological Advancement

In the refractory market, technological advancement has emerged as a notable trend. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques have been integrated into the production of refractories to enhance efficiency. Data gathered from in-situ analysis, including images and other relevant information, are fed into ML models. These models offer valuable insights that enable companies to make precise predictions regarding the optimal operational conditions for achieving the desired product, be it steel, glass, or cement. Notably, RHI Magnesita, an Austria-based supplier of refractory products, systems, and services, has leveraged AI to assimilate insights from production data. Its Automated Process Optimization (APO) system collects comprehensive data on specific manufacturing processes, facilitating accurate predictions regarding the maintenance and replacement of refractory materials.
