Market Research on Cement Castables Market 2018 and Analysis to 2026

Published: Tue Sep 24 2019


Dry mix compositions of refractory aggregates bonded with a suitable bonding material, additive and/or filler are called cement castables. Cement castables are also known as cement castable refractories and are a type of monolithic refractory product.

Being a premix combination of refractory aggregates, bonding agents and additives, varying the proportion of these components results into different desired properties. The performance of cement castables is tested based on its flowability. Superior flowability enables good lining and also makes it possible to employ these castables in intricate equipment shapes. However, better flowing mass can possibly contain particles with higher sphericity causing lower strength. Hence, an optimum mix of components is desired while manufacturing cement castables.

Cement Castables Market: Dynamics

As cement castables are basically monolithic refractories, they take the shape of the equipment and are very cost – effective as compared to shaped refractories. Cement castables are projected to witness fast growth due to their easy availability, affordability and easier installation. Moreover, the iron & steel industry has registered significant growth in recent years. The manufacturing processes have also seen advancements due to the adoption of improved machinery to upgrade the quality and quantity of the steel produced. Growing demand from end-use industries for refractory products with reduced down time are compelling refractory manufacturers, end users and researchers to substitute conventional shaped refractories with unshaped monolithics. This has led to increasing R&D spending on cement castables to investigate their numerous physical, mechanical, thermo-mechanical and chemical properties.

Currently, manufacturers are offering a whole range of low cement Castables, Ultra – Low Cement Castables and No Cement Castables. Furthermore, manufacturers also supply cement castables for custom OEM manufacturers as well as for repair & maintenance purposes. The market is expected to be moderately fragmented with the presence of several large scale producers, such as RHI Magnesita and Vesuvius.
