The market for andalusite around the globe is expected to experience moderate growth of around 5.5% in the next years. Refractories are extensively utilized in blast furnaces during the production of steel because of their distinctive properties, including resistance to high thermal conductivity and temperatures. Additionally, the amazing properties of andalusite like volume stability, low porosity, creep, chemical resistance, high thermal shock and the purity of its high levels allow it to be used for the production of refractories.
The high use of andalusite in refractories, the growth and expansion of the construction industry, and the growing demand for andalusite within the iron and steel industries are just a few of the major elements that will drive demand for andalusite all over the globe. Furthermore, the rising production of automobiles is expected to increase demand for items like glass, steel, aluminum copper, plastics, and other materials which, in turn will increase in the market for refractories, and consequently also the need for andalusite.
Asia Pacific is dominating the global andalusite market in 2021 and is anticipated to continue this trend throughout the 2022-2028 forecast period.
