Browse 100 market data tables and 40 figures spread through 154 pages and in-depth TOC on "Refractories Market" http://www.marketsandmarkets.com/Market-Reports/refractories-market-222632393.html Early buyers will receive 10% customization on this report. This growth is attributed to the increase in infrastructural developments in developing countries such as China, India, and Brazil and high growth rate witnessed by the non-metallic minerals industry. The growing demand for high-grade refractories from iron & steel industries is also an important factor driving the refractories market. Unshaped refractories: The largest segment of refractories market by form Unshaped refractories was the largest segment of the global refractories market, by form in 2016, followed by shaped refractories. The demand for unshaped refractories is driven due to its effective and substantial usage in cement, glass, and ceramic industries. Its availability in various compositions and morphologies is expected to drive its demand globally. Acidic & Neutral refractories: The largest segment of refractories market, by alkalinity Acidic & neutral refractories was the largest segment, of the global refractories market, by alkalinity in 2016. Acidic refractories are rich in silica and alumina content and are mainly used in the glass and ceramics industry, which is expected to drive the market of acidic & neutral refractories. Acidic & neutral refractories are inexpensive, which further fuels their demands globally. The usage of acidic & neutral and basic refractories majorly depends on the kind of end-use industry it is required in. Iron & steel industry: The largest segment of the refractories market, by end-use industry Iron & steel industry was the largest segment of the global refractories market, by end-use industry in 2016. This large share is attributed to the increasing technological advancements and the need for specialized refractory materials and products. Additionally, increasing infrastructure and construction activities in developing economies, such as India, Brazil, Mexico, Russia, and others are contributing significantly to steel consumption, and consequently leading to an increase in the usage of refractories. The Asia-Pacific region was the largest region for Refractories Market, in terms of value and volume, in 2016. The large market size of Asia-Pacific is due to the shifting of manufacturing facilities by large market players from mature markets such as Europe and North America to Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa. The large players prefer investing in these regions because they offer a wide range of market penetration opportunities due to the presence of mineral deposits such as magnesite, silica, and alumina, which are the key raw materials used to manufacture refractories, and the abundant availability of workforce and consumers.
