The Refractories Industry Worldwide 2012-2017- A Market / Technology Report is a new in-depth market study of the current situation and future prospects for the refractories industry worldwide, providing comprehensive data on production, consumption, international trade and growth rates for the international refractories industry, its raw materials and its end-user markets worldwide. The report's author is Ted Dickson, one of the world's leading consultants in the industrial minerals sector, with extensive knowledge of the refractories industry and its markets.

Over 400 pages long and featuring 275 tables and figures, the report forecasts market growth to 2017 and in doing so highlights the growing importance of developing economies to the future of the refractories industry, especially China, India and other Asian countries, as well as South America.

The refractories industry largely follows trends set by its main driver, the steel industry. Iron and steel production is responsible for up to 70% of the total demand for refractories: therefore, the profitability of the refractories industry as a whole is strongly influenced by steel production levels and steel plant investments.
