Competitive Landscape:

Major Market Players Adopt New Strategies to Accelerate Growth & Expansion  

With the presence of major international companies as well as local emerging players, the global refractories market share is fairly fragmented. Several players are adopting new strategies such as collaborations, new product launches, acquisitions, mergers, and R&D investments as part of their growth and expansion goals. Many companies are also expanding their production capacities to meet the global market demand.    

Weakened Demand Across Key End-Use Sectors Affected Market Dynamics     

Despite refractory production being an essential service, supply chain uncertainty and subsequent lack of raw materials such as binders and non-clay sands dented the growth prospects for this market. Slowdown of automotive, construction, and other key sectors impacted the market trends. However, the recovery of these sectors post-pandemic will strengthen the market outlook over the forthcoming years.
