Nonmetallic minerals to be fastest growing marketThe fastest gains of any market will be posted in the nonmetallic minerals market through 2016. This market includes glass, ceramics, and cement producers, all of which were hurt by the recent economic downturn. Shipments from these industries will rise quickly as the US economy continues to grow, fueling associated refractory demand. Further gains will come from nonmanufacturing markets for refractories, such as waste-to-energy plants, traditional power plants, and the construction and renovation of restaurants with in-house bakeries and stone ovens. These refractory markets are much smaller than those for metals or nonmetallic minerals processing.
