Clay Product And Refractory Manufacturing companies carry out activities shaping, molding, glazing, and firing pottery, ceramics, plumbing fixtures, and electrical supplies made entirely or partly of clay or other ceramic materials, refractories, non-clay refractories, ceramic tiles, bricks, and other structural clay building materials. Refractory materials are heated and then formed into bricks or other shapes for use in industrial applications. Clay products find applications in construction, steel making, cosmetics, and food industry.
The global clay product and refractory manufacturing market was valued at $329.6 billion in 2017. Asia Pacific was the largest geographic region accounting for $216.6 billion or 65.7% of the global market. And China was the largest country accounting for $130.4 billion or 39.5% of the global clay product and refractory manufacturing market.
Hollow clay bricks are replacing solid bricks because they are lighter, strong & durable, cost effective and eco-friendly. Hollow brick is manufactured using waste materials or natural substitutes and formed by placing moist clay in a mold. It acts as thermal and sound insulators due to the air present in the hollow area and also makes plumbing and other electrical drilling activities easier resulting in low labor cost. Major companies offering hallow clay bricks include MRF Bricks, Summit Brick Company and Apollo Brick.
