At The Freedonia Group, we are actively monitoring company and industry reports on how the COVID-19 outbreak is impacting demand, investment, and industry consolidation.
We published our most recent Global Refractories industry study in March 2020. Since then, the unfolding scope of the global COVID-19 pandemic has required a reassessment of the marketplace.
This slide deck presents new insights on the global refractory market and macroeconomic environment as of April 27, 2020. It also looks at the historical perspective of how recent recessions and virus outbreaks impacted the industry.
