1. 사업의 개요가. 업계의 현황 당사는 내화물제조, 노재정비, 내화물축조공사, 생석회제조, 제철소 화성공장 위탁운영 및이차전지 음,양극재 사업을 주요 사업으로 영위하고 있으며, 철강산업 및 전기차 시장 성장과밀접한 연관성을가지고 있습니다 철강산업은 자동차, 조선, 가전, 건설 등 철강 수요산업에 기초 원자재를 공급하는 산업으로서, 70년대 이후 경제발전에 중추적인 역할을 수행해 온 국가 기간산업입니다 내화물은 각종 기간산업의 공업용로에 사용하는 재료로써 고온에서도 용융되지 않는비금속재료의 총칭이며 특히 철강산업과 시멘트 및 요업 등의 산업에 있어서 중요한 공업용 소재입니다. 국내 내화물 산업은 90년대 중반까지 중화학 공업의 발전과 함께 지속적 성장을 이루어 설비투자 등을 통한 생산성 향상을 이루었으며 양적, 질적인 성장이 가능하였습니다. 그러나,최근에는 전 세계 내화물업체의 과잉 설비로 인한 가동율 감소 및 저가의 중국산 제품의 유입 등 무한경쟁의 체제에 놓여있는 실정입니다. 따라서 극한의 원가 경쟁력 확보와 고부가가치품의 개발을 통해 글로벌 시장에서의 경쟁력을 확보하여야 할 것입니다. 노재정비, 내화물축조공사, 생석회 제조사업은 조강생산량 증감과 손익이 밀접한 관계가 있습니다 이차전지의 4대 핵심요소는 양극활물질(양극재), 음극활물질(음극재), 분리막 및 전해액으로 구성되어 있습니다. 삼성SDI, LG에너지솔루션, SK이노베이션 등 배터리 제조업체는 핵심 소재들을 매입 또는 자체생산하여 이차전지를 생산하고, 최종적으로 IT, 자동차, 에너지업체들에 공급합니다. 주요 최종 적용 제품으로는 소형분야인 모바일기기와 중대형분야인전동공구, E-bike, 전기차, 전력저장시스템(ESS) 등이 있습니다. SNE리서치에 따르면 글로벌 이차전지 시장(리튬이온 이차전지 시장)은 2018년 179GWh에서 2030년 3,392GWh까지약 17배 성장할 것으로 예상하고 있습니다. 특히 중대형분야인 전기차 시장은 전세계적 전기차 보급 확대 정책에 힘입어 2030년 3,06...
