Key Market Trends

Demand from Refractories Segment to Boost the Andalusite Market

  • Andalusite is an alumino-silicate raw material utilized widely in the production of refractory linings. Refractory material ought to be truly and synthetically stable at high temperatures, impervious to thermal shocks. Andalusite has low porosity, stable volume, high virtue, and high thermal shock resistance, mking it suitable for refractory application.
  • Thus, refractories made with andalusite can be utilized viably under rough conditions. For the most part, andalusite shapes under low tension and high temperature and changes over to sillimanite or kyanite at the diverse temperature-pressure system.
  • The increasing utilization of andalusite in refractories inferable from end-use industries like metallurgy is driving the market growth. Developing application of steel in automotive industry is also relied upon refractories. Andalusite-based products are very popular in Europe and Asia-Pcific region for the production of fired and unfired refractories.
  • All the aforementioned factors are expected to drive the andalusite market during the forecast period.
