Refractories Market Latest Study On Segmentation Analysis, Leading Players & Industry Trends Forecast To 2027

The Global Refractories Market is estimated to reach USD 37.3 Billion by 2024 at a CAGR of 4.3 %.

Refractories are the material that possess ability to withstand extremely high temperature i.e. around 3000°C without degrading. The refractory materials encompass of ceramics, minerals, and some super alloys which are used in modern manufacturing. These materials have higher capacity to resist heat than that of metals and thus can be used in various industrial application. Apart from high resistance to thermal stress, these materials have high capability to withstand the physical wear and corrosion caused by chemical agents. Owing to high ability to withstand high temperature condition, it is widely used in furnaces, ovens, kilns, and jet and rocket engines.
