Refractory Bricks Market Surpassed USD 20,570 Million in 2020 | CAGR 5%

Date : Mar 15, 2023

Ameco Research Analysis suggests that the worldwide market for Refractory Bricks will increase at a CAGR of more than 5% throughout the forecast period, with market size of USD 20,570 Million in 2020.

Refractory bricks, also known as fire bricks, are construction materials that can withstand high temperatures. Refractory bricks are usually white or yellowish-white in color and weigh about 3 kilograms each. They'll need a high fusion point to survive. This sort of brick is made from fire clay. This clay can withstand high temperatures without undergoing significant structural changes such as melting or softening. In Asian countries such as China, Japan, India, and ASEAN, refractory applications have been in high demand. Rising capital investments in large-scale projects in the infrastructure, mining (impacting the metallurgy sector), steel, and cement industries, as well as the following development of a refractory distribution and sales network in the region, are driving demand. Moreover, over the projected period 2021-2028, large-scale investments in other industries such as glass are expected to fuel demand for refractories.

Because the raw materials required for manufacturing are readily available, the refractory blocks are relatively inexpensive. The refractory bricks building materials have a high resistance to high temperatures and fire. They make the structure flame resistant and reduce the possibility of structural damage from heat. Furthermore, the manufacturing process for fire bricks is simple and similar to that of traditional bricklaying. As a result, it does not necessitate the use of trained laborers for laying procedures. Furthermore, the bricks can absorb water, making them a water-resistant building material.

The rising infrastructure development across the globe propels the Refractory Bricks market

Rising demand, particularly for new building construction, is expected to boost demand for refractory bricks in the coming years. Because refractory production is heavily reliant on high-quality raw materials, many of these are becoming hotspots for new building construction. Furthermore, the tremendous growth in construction activity fuels global demand for iron and steel production, particularly in developing economies. As a result of COVID-19, a number of countries were placed on lockdown, which had a tremendous impact on the world economy. The refractories market felt the effects in terms of both production and demand from end-user sectors like iron and steel, energy and chemicals, ceramics, cement, and so on.

Global Refractory Bricks Market Classification

The global refractory bricks segmentation includes the material, type, application, and geography. The material type segment includes alumino-silicates, silicon carbides, and ceramic bricks. Silica bricks are refractory bricks with SiO2 content greater than 29 percent. It is the most common kind of acid refractory brick. It is primarily used in the construction of coke ovens, but it is also used in the construction of various calcining furnaces for glass, ceramic, and carbon. In addition, it is used in refractory brick vaults and other load-bearing parts of furnaces. It can also be used in high temp load bearing parts of hot blast stoves. However, this type of alumina silicates refractory brick cannot be used in heat equipment with a wide temperature range.

Based on type, the segmentation comprises shaped and unshaped. The floor tiles, arches, and walls of severe temperature process equipment are made of shaped refractories, also known as performed refractories. The size and structure of furnaces or other services that use refractory materials determine the shape and production of refractories. On the other hand, unshaped refractory can be used to build or repair linings in industrial furnaces and kilns directly. Unshaped refractory, nothing like shaped refractory, may form a seamless integral inner lining, and is thus referred to in the America and Europe as monolithic refractory or seamless refractory material. Unshaped refractory is sometimes known as refractory concrete in East Europe and Russia since the preparation craft and application method are identical to regular construction concrete. By application, the market is categorized into furnaces, metallurgy, kilns, incinerators, and others. The blast furnace is the primary ironmaking equipment, and clay brick was the first furnace lining material used in blast furnaces. Other ironmaking methods cannot compete with the benefits of blast furnaces, which have a high output, high productivity, and low cost. The refractory materials and refractory bricks were used in various parts of the blast furnace, including the furnace hearth, tuyere zone, and bosh, the furnace bosh and lower furnace stack, the middle and upper parts of the furnace stack, and blast furnace taphole clay.

Regional Stance

North America, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East & Africa are the regional categorization of the global Refractory Bricks market. In 2020, Europe subjugated the major section of the market with Germany being the dominating country. The growing trend of recycling that reduces the raw material cost has been the major driver for the European region. Moreover, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to attain the fastest growth rate throughout the forecast period due to the rise in construction activities, the presence of raw materials, and raising awareness about refractory bricks.

Major Players

The prominent players offered in the report include ArcelorMittal Refractories, Blue Refractories Liaoning Co., Ltd., Dalmia OCL, Darley Firebrick, Industrial Minerals and Refractories, J. R. Refractory, Melbourne Fire Brick Company, TRL Krosaki, Rath Group, and Vitcas.
