Magnesia Chrome Brick Market Insights
The global magnesia chrome brick market is estimated to show a peak market growth of CGAR 3.2% in the conjecture time frame (2020-2026). Silicate bonded magnesia chrome brick is the other name of magnesia chrome brick, which is constructed using sintered magnesia clinker and refractory chrome brick. Magnesium oxide (MgO) and chromium oxide (Cr2O3) being the major ingredients for manufacturing have shown significant applications in electric furnace roof, metallurgy, building open-hearth furnace, refining furnace, and various non-ferrous metal smelting furnace. Magnesia chrome brick has eye-catching properties like good resistance to extreme cold and hot temperature, excellent thermal stability, refractoriness of above 2000 ?, strong resistance from alkaline slag, long service life, and easy operation with low thermal conductivity.
The high demand for magnesia chrome brick from the iron & steel industry remains the primary market booster for the growth. Growing urbanization and industrialization with emerging economies created lucrative opportunities for the magnesia chrome brick. Consistent demand from countries like China and India for the development of railways, roadways, and construction of resident & commercial buildings has increased the growth pace of the magnesia chrome brick market in the last few years. However, the recycling of refractory brick to a secondary material, refractory grogs requires the low quality of magnesia chrome brick. The demand for recycled products has been increasing as a matter of reduction in cost for the production for manufacturers and lucrative opportunities for the key market players.
Global pandemic results in suspension of on-going production of magnesia chrome brick around the globe owing to low demand from the customers, supply chain cutback, and short employees attendance. However high production cost and growing environmental concerns due to the emission of harmful gasses during production have restricted the use of magnesia chrome in many regions of the globe thus act as a big hurdle for product growth.
Magnesia Chrome Brick Market: By Type
Given by the type magnesia chrome brick, the market is bifurcated into fused/re-bonded, direct bonded, fused cast, and chemically bonded. The directly bonded segment of magnesia chrome brick is expected to build a huge market in the coming years as the demand of the segment is high in the production of cement for construction based projects. However high temperature and pressure resistance are the key properties of the segment but due to the high requirement of pure magnesite ore and chromite as raw material, the directly bonded segment ends up raising the overall cost of production.
Magnesia Chrome Brick Market: By End-User Industry
The end-user industry of magnesia chrome brick can be explained based on 7 segments namely, power generation, iron & steel, non-ferrous metals, glass, cement, and other end-users. The iron & steel industry dominated the magnesia chrome brick market by sharing more than 60% of the total market in the last year. The reason behind the insignificant growth of the segment is an increase in infrastructural development and high demand for consumer goods such as automobiles.
Despite the high cost, the high performance is the key driver of the magnesia chrome brick market which creates a wide application range starting from the various lining of furnaces to ladles and vessels that are governed under operating conditions of steel manufacturing.
Magnesia Chrome Brick Market: By Region
Expeditious consumption of magnesia chrome brick from industries like iron & steel, glass, and power generation cement in countries like India, China, South Korea has led the overall Asia-pacific market and made it to be the highest revenue builder of 2019.
Similar market growth is expected in the coming years owing to an increase in industry set-up and high development of railways, roadways, and construction of resident & commercial buildings in the APAC region.
