The globally growing steel industry is fueling the growth of the global industrial refractory material market during the forecast period

According to the World Steel Association (WSA) forecast, the global steel industry will continue to proliferate with China as the leader followed by India, Japan, and the United States. In 2019, the steel demand in China grew by 7.8% in order to achieve a production of 900.1 Mt (approximately). While, steel demand in the other parts of the world grew by over 2.0%, mainly driven by more than 4.0% growth from the emerging economies of the world excluding China.

Furthermore, as the innovations in steel products continue to proliferate, this is continuing to show favorable growth prospects for refractory materials in the forecast period. As per the WSA stats, in 2017, an investment of 5.9% of the total revenue was made by the steel industry in projects, research, and process improvement. Hence, notable investments in the steel industry are further propagating the market growth in the forecast period. In addition, the innovative breakthrough technologies for the development of steel are helping in curbing carbon emissions, aiming at the lowering of carbon footprint.

By industry, glassmaking is expected to hold a significant market share, propagating the market demand during the forecast period

The global glass industry is expected to grow with a significant growth rate. The growth is mainly attributed to the surging demand for glass in wide applications which include varied residential and commercial infrastructure projects. Also, the soaring demand for glass substrate from the transportation industry, electronics and semiconductor sector, especially from the developing economies of the world are driving the market demand. On the global level, the Asia Pacific region is expected to be the largest market for glass consumption, especially float glass with the increasing urbanization, robust demand for housing, and investments by the glass manufacturers. Other user countries include China, Germany, USA, France, Japan, Spain, Argentina, Australia, Canada, Egypt, India, and Sri Lanka.
