Market Analysis and Insights: North America Refractories Market
North America refractories market is expected to gain market growth in the forecast period of 2021 to 2028. Data Bridge Market Research analyses that the market is growing with a CAGR of 4.7% in the forecast period of 2021 to 2028 and expected to reach USD 10,497,185.48 thousand by 2028.
Refractories are made of ceramic, alumina, silica, magnesia and other materials designed aiming to resist the very high temperatures faced in modern manufacturing. More heat-resistant than metals, they are used to line the hot surfaces inside many industrial processes. The refractory products generally fall under preformed shapes or unformed compositions. Refractories are used to contain heat and protect processing equipment from intense temperatures.
Refractories are available in all shapes and size. Bricks are one of the traditional forms of refractories and have accounted for the majority of refractory production earlier but now monolithic refractories are being widely used due to low cost, durability and easy installation procedure. Refractories market has its wide applicability in industries such as iron and steel, cement & ceramics, non-ferrous metals and others. Increasing prevalence for non-metallic minerals industry, growing infrastructure in emerging countries and demand of refractories from iron & steel industry are the factors which will boost the refractories market. Some companies are expanding their production capacities in different regions to grow their market for these products.
