There are a large number of large and small refractory enterprises in China, and more than more than 2000 enterprises whose main income exceeds 20 million yuan. Promoted by the rapid development of new technologies in high temperature industry, the sales profit of products was 47.737 billion yuan in 2017.
Refractories are widely used in basic industries such as iron and steel, nonferrous metals, petrochemical, building materials, machinery, electric power, light industry, aerospace and aviation, warships, missiles and other military fields. The market development prospects of refractory industry are analyzed. The steel industry accounts for 70% of the main application fields of refractories and their respective consumption ratios, followed by cement, ceramics, glass, chemical industry and non-ferrous metals, accounting for 7%, 6%, 4%, 4% and 3% respectively.
Since 2001, driven by the rapid development of high-temperature industries such as steel, non-ferrous metals, petrochemical and building materials, the refractory industry has maintained a good growth trend and has become a major producer and exporter of refractories in the world. Analysis of refractories industry, 2011 China's refractories production accounted for about 65% of global production and sales ranked the world's first refractory material.
The output of refractory materials for 2001-2017 years of steady growth, including "fifteen" at the end of 2001 was about 2 times; in 2017 the national refractories production reached 28 million 80 thousand and 600 tons, about "3 times fifteen" at the end of the. As of 2017, China's refractories industry a total of 1917 above scale enterprises, employing more than about 300000 people, sales revenue of 337 billion 679 million yuan, to achieve product sales profit of 47 billion 737 million yuan.
In the first half of 2018, the output of refractories in China was 32 million 912 thousand and 400 tons, down 8.56% from the same period last year. Among them, dense shaped refractory products 13 million 585 thousand and 200 tons, down 11.08%; thermal insulation refractory products 467 thousand and 200 tons, down 1.32%; unshaped refractory products 9 million 859 thousand and 900 tons, down 5.19%. China's refractories products manufacturing industry sales revenue of about 532 billion 670 million yuan, an increase of 7.9% over the same period. China started refractory products manufacturing industry sales revenue is increasing from 2011, but the growth rate fluctuated considerably, especially in the 2014 and 2015 annual growth rate of only 3.1%.
With the manufacturing level of China's refractory high-end product technology has been improved, so the ordinary refractory material demand will be greatly reduced. The reform of consumption and downstream enterprises energy saving intelligent manufacturing so as to force the enterprises to research and development of high-end products and advanced technology to make the direction constantly, and then make the high quality, energy saving, long life, high efficiency, new functional refractories demand continues to increase, so the refractory materials enterprises need to continuously improve the comprehensive The strength, the more important is to improve the ability of research and innovation, continuous development of low power consumption and high life of new refractory products, to meet the needs of users under the new industrial era. The future of refractory technology to long life, low consumption, energy saving, environmental protection, low-carbon, recycling and function combined with the direction of research and innovation, so as to improve the comprehensive service ability, enhance the overall international competitiveness of China's refractories industry, the development of refractories industry will lead our new resistance The rapid development of science and technology revolution in fire material industry.
In recent years, with the rapid development of China's industrial countries in 13th Five-Year planning for landing, refractories industry must cater to the needs of industrial development and continuous innovation, the country attaches great importance to environmental protection and air pollution, forcing traditional refractory material industry must do a phoenix from the ashes of preparation; resistance Analysis of the development of material industry market, "new refractories industry" will replace the traditional refractory materials in all aspects of relevant national policy support and encouragement is imperative.
The future development of refractories are mainly as follows: the unshaped refractory material is mainly used for blast furnace lining refractory castable (Gunning Technology), blast furnace iron ditch, ladle and ladle lining, secondary refining, processing equipment, dry cement kiln outer loop heat exchanger, and the heat insulation material and repair Supplementary refractories. In refractory materials, a new type of clay brick production technology has high potential and high alumina bricks such as cement kiln parts used for lining materials, brick, refractory brick for blast furnace and blast furnace, blast furnace and furnace with red brick, products for anode baking furnace, clay and high alumina insulating brick etc..
Overall, changes in China's economic development under the new normal provides new space for the development of high temperature industrial and refractory industry, manufacturing technology level of refractory high-end products has been greatly improved, expected in the second half of 2018 the market price of all varieties of refractories are unlikely to change. In the refractory industry to seize the adjustment of the three aspects of product structure, organizational structure, industrial structure. The above is the analysis of the market prospect of refractory industry.
