2023-08-17 15:53:31

With the continuous development and technological innovation in the global industrial field, refractory materials, as an important raw material, have also received extensive attention. Refractory materials play an extremely important role in various industrial fields. Under harsh working environments such as high temperature and chemical corrosion, they can maintain structural stability and have good mechanical strength and heat resistance. In the future, with the increasing demand for refractory materials in industrial production, the development prospects of refractory materials will become more and more broad. This article will analyze and expound the development trend and prospect of refractory materials.

First, the development trend

1. Develop materials with more advanced refractories and higher performance
In various industries, higher requirements are put forward for the performance and service life of refractory materials in extreme environments such as high temperature and chemical corrosion. Therefore, developing more advanced and higher performance refractories has become an important task for refractory manufacturers and researchers. For example, in response to the problem that existing refractory materials are prone to thermal shock brittle failure at high temperatures, new refractory materials have been developed to prevent thermal shock and brittle failure. In addition, scientists are developing new refractory materials to solve these practical problems, in order to solve the problem of high production cost caused by high viscosity in hot molten iron.

2. Improve production efficiency and reduce costs
In the production process of refractory materials, some traditional processes and equipment have problems such as low efficiency and high energy consumption. Therefore, in the future, in order to improve production efficiency, reduce costs, and optimize product performance, more advanced manufacturing technologies and equipment will be required. For example, through digital process control technology, automatic production and rapid response can be realized, thereby improving production efficiency and product quality. In addition, in order to improve the efficiency and accuracy of the product supply chain and reduce logistics costs, it is also necessary to standardize the logistics management in the production process.

3. Promote renewable resources
At present, most refractory raw materials at home and abroad are still non-renewable resources such as oil and natural gas. In the future development of refractory materials, in order to better meet the requirements of environmental protection and sustainable development, the utilization and promotion of renewable resources should be strengthened. For example, using renewable resources such as biomass and waste to manufacture refractory materials can not only reduce dependence on non-renewable resources, but also reduce environmental pollution and energy consumption.

Second, the outlook

1. In the field of equipment manufacturing, the application of refractory materials will continue to increase
With the continuous improvement of national military manufacturing technology and the increasing demand for high-performance refractory materials, the application of refractory materials in the field of equipment manufacturing will continue to increase. For example, in the manufacture of new-generation fighter jets, spacecraft, high-speed trains and other equipment, in order to ensure their efficient operation and long-term stability in complex environments, a large number of advanced refractory materials need to be used.

2. Environmentally friendly and energy-saving refractory materials will become the mainstream of the market
In the future, with the gradual enhancement of environmental awareness and the limitation of energy consumption, environmentally friendly and energy-saving refractory materials will become the mainstream of the market. This type of refractory material is characterized by low energy consumption, low CO2 emissions, and low pollutant emissions. For example, by using new nanotechnology to improve refractory materials, their thermal insulation and corrosion resistance can be improved, thereby achieving energy saving and environmental protection.

3. The Internet + model has changed the business model of the refractory industry
With the popularization and application of the Internet plus model, the business model of the refractory industry will be restructured. The Internet plus model can not only bring more efficient production and supply chain management, but also transform from traditional single product sales to all-round customer service. For example, by establishing an e-commerce platform, customers can customize, inquire and purchase refractory materials of different types, sizes and specifications, thereby improving customer satisfaction and market competitiveness.

4. The application field and market scale of refractory materials will be further expanded
In the future, with the rapid development of the global economy and the increasing demand for high-quality and high-efficiency industrial production, the application fields and market size of refractory materials will further expand. For example, in iron and steel smelting, chemical industry, electric power and other industries, the demand for refractory materials will continue to increase.
