Industrial Furnaces Market Outlook - 2026

The global industrial furnaces market size was valued at $10,958.5 million in 2018 and is projected to reach $16,996.5 million in 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2019 to 2026. An industrial furnace is a thermal inclusion and is employed to process and treat raw materials at high temperatures in solid as well as liquid state. It is an industrial heat-treating system that heats above 1,000 degree Fahrenheit. Industrial furnaces are employed by a variety of industries such as manufacturing, iron and steel making, glass making, non-ferrous metals production, calcination in cement production, and ceramic processing. The major objectives of using an industrial furnace are to use heat proficiently (so that losses are minimum), and to manage and control the diverse phases (gas, liquid, or solid) moving at various speeds for different temperatures and times such that corrosion and erosion of the refractory are least. 

One of the major factors that drives the growth of the industrial furnaces market include the recurring demand for iron and steel accompanied by other significant materials and metals. In addition, factors such as rise in adoption of electric industrial furnaces and increase in demand for lightweight vehicles, owing to technological advancements, fuel the growth of the global market. Moreover, many automotive component producers utilize industrial furnaces to manufacture and heat treat metallic automotive parts, which are used in automotive assembly. This upward trend of manufacturing lightweight metal components in the automotive industry coupled with the growth in production and sales of automobiles drives the market growth.

Furthermore, rise in adoption of state-of-the-art technologies such as industry 4.0 and the industrial internet of things (IIoT) has transformed the entire scenario of industrial furnaces by offering enhanced efficiencies and automation. Therefore, such technologies thrive an opportunity for manufacturers of industrial furnaces, who adopt advanced technologies at an early stage. 

However, the industrial furnace is a one-time investment for any manufacturing plant as it has a lifespan of approximately 10-15 years, consequently, having a low replacement rate. This factor may restrain the growth of the global market. In addition, many of the advanced countries such as the U.S., Japan, and Germany are well fortified with enough manufacturing units and a smaller number of production facilities have been established in the past few years. Therefore, this is anticipated to negatively influence the development of the industrial furnace market during the forecast period.
