Refractories are materials prepared from thermally stable mineral aggregates, additives, and a binder phase and they are having properties that make them appropriate for structures or as parts of systems that are exposed to environments. Refractories are resistant to high temperatures which are utilized in preparing molds or crucibles.

Driver: Rise in infrastructural development in emerging countries.

Increasing urbanization and industrialization, particularly in emerging economies has led to significant investment in the construction of residential and commercial buildings. China is fastest-developing country; increasing travel demand requires constant advancement of railways and roadways in the region. The expanded pace of infrastructure development in these developing countries has prompted to an expansion in the construction of residential and commercial buildings which is supporting the refractories market in the iron & steel and cement vertical end users.

Opportunity: Recycling of refractory materials.

In past, the refractory industries experienced a very unstable period, during which, certain raw materials turned out to be practically difficult to obtain because of high demand combined with low supply. Pressure has been mounting on organizations to turn out to be environmentally responsible by diminishing their particular carbon footprints. Increased taxes on landfill sites and emissions are being implemented, and tax incentives are also proposed to motivate organizations to build their waste recycling efforts. The manufacturers are striving to decrease costs to hold their market share. So, recycling of refractories helps to reduce the production cost for the manufacturers, thus providing opportunities for the growth of this market.
