The global cement industry is estimated to grow by +9% by 2020, driven by the increased standard of living and purchasing capacity of people in emerging markets. India and China have been key drivers of growth in this industry over the past ten years. An increase in purchasing power from these emerging markets is also increasing the number of industrial and residential projects worldwide, which in turn raises the global demand for refractories in the cement industry.
Each step of the cement-making process has special requirements regarding the correct choice of refractory supplies and materials. As a refractory supplier, we are always paying close attention to each step, as they all have a major influence on the refractories required.
Fortunately, FibreCast has over twenty years of experience in creating these products, and our commitment to research and development allows us to offer the most innovative and advanced solutions available.
The insulation required in the cement industry can vary with the materials used, processes employed, and type of fuel powering the manufacturing process. Build-ups and abrasions are regular occurrences in this industry, so the refractories installed must stand up to mechanical shock. There is no refractory suitable for all potential operative conditions demanded by cement manufacturing, so we work closely with our customers to create refractory supplies and solutions aligned with their specific technical requirements.
FibreCast understands the unique features and benefits of refractories used in the cement industry. We are proud to be a market leader in developing products and solutions for cement manufacturers, and our expertise has played a pivotal role in our position of reliability with the cement industry.
