Refractories

The US refractories market is expected to record yearly gains of 3.3 percent per year through 2019 when it will total $3.1 billion. Growth through 2019 will slow from advances achieved between 2009 and 2014 as iron and steel production slows. However, opportunities for demand through 2019 will arise in the nonmetallic minerals industry.

This report segments the refractories industry by from, material, and market. Data is provided in million US dollars and tons.

Refractory forms include:

Refractory Bricks & Shapes

Monolithic Refractories

Other Refractory Forms

Refractory materials include:

Non-clay

Magnesite & Chrome

Zircon & Zirconia

Extra-High Alumina

Ceramic Fibers

Silicon Carbide

Graphite & Carbon

Mullite

Silica

Dolomite & Other Non-clay Refractories

Clay

High-Alumina

Fireclay

Insulating

Non-clay will remain the largest refractory material through 2019, accounting for 61 percent of value demand, while clay will remain the largest refractory material in terms of volume through 2019, when the material will comprise 54 percent of demand.

Refractory markets include:

Metals Industries

Nonmetallic Mineral Processing Industries

Engineering Contractors

Nonmanufacturing Industries

Petroleum & Chemicals

Other Manufacturing Industries

Metals industries will continue to be the leading market for refractories in 2019, with 54 percent of all value sales and 52 percent of volume demand. The nonmetallic minerals market will register the fastest increases in demand in volume terms, with growth bolstered primarily by rising use in cement, lime, and mineral product applications.

A large portion of total refractory sales is concentrated in a small number of companies. Leader suppliers include Almatis, HarbisonWalker-International, Imerys, Magnesita, Minerals Technologies, Morgan Advanced Materials, Resco, RHI, Saint-Gobain, TYK, Unifrax, and Vesuvius.
