About Refractories Market

Refractories are inorganic, non-metallic materials that retain their strength at high temperatures. They are porous and heterogeneous and are composed of thermally stable mineral aggregates. Refractories are resistant to varying degrees of mechanical stress, thermal stress, strain, and corrosion. Refractories find application in furnaces, kilns, incinerators, and reactors.

One of the emerging market trends is the reshoring initiatives of automobile manufacturers. Reshoring refers to the act of reintroducing business operations that were outsourced overseas back to the country of origin. Reshoring activities are witnessing an uptrend in the US. The substantial rise in labor cost in countries such as China is driving the need to relocate manufacturing facilities, despite long lead times and risks involved. This is expected to fuel regional demand for refractories, as iron and steel production would rise to support restoring of businesses.
