New York, USA, Nov. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Magnesium Oxide Market Overview

According to a Comprehensive Research Report by Market Research Future (MRFR), “Magnesium Oxide Market Information by Type, Purity Application, And Region – Forecast till 2028”, the market is estimated to grow at a 5.34% CAGR to reach USD 5,376.5 Million by 2028.

Market Synopsis

Magnesium oxide, sometimes referred to as magnesia, is a white, alkaline compound with the chemical formula MgO found naturally in the earth’s crust. It is made from the calcination of naturally occurring materials and is extremely pure, tasteless, and colorless. It is strong, temperature resistant, corrosion resistant, and has a high melting point. It can either be extracted from magnesite ore using a pyrolysis method or recovered using an electrolysis method from saltwater. As a mineral supplement, it is also used to ward off hypomagnesemia.

Over the past few years, the need for magnesium oxide has steadily increased. The growing use of dead burned magnesia, or DBM magnesia, has also increased demand. Despite some challenges at the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic, the magnesium oxide market had a promising future. The industrial, refractories, and agricultural sectors are undergoing rapid technological change, presenting new prospects for magnesium oxide suppliers in the coming years. While magnesium oxide suppliers will benefit from the increased emphasis on creating more high-quality products, macroeconomic variables, including increased governmental expenditure in industrial sectors, rising urbanization, and others, will enable them to seize the chance.

Market Drivers:

In the iron and steel industry, magnesium oxide is frequently used. As a result, the industry’s impressive growth over the past several years suggests that the need for magnesium oxide will soar in the coming years. Aside from that, the growth of the nonferrous metal, ceramics, and chemical industries is anticipated to open up attractive new markets for magnesium oxide. Some important factors driving the global magnesium oxide market include rising glass production and demand for magnesium oxide in fertilizers and animal feed. Magnesium oxide wallboards are being used more frequently in the construction sector: In place of gypsum boards, magnesium oxide wallboard is utilized in buildings. Such wallboards are made of fire-resistant materials and are applied to walls, ceilings, and other surfaces. The need for eco-friendly products and aesthetic appeal in the building and construction industry is driving growth in the worldwide wallboard market. According to estimates, the expanding wallboard market will offer magnesium oxide producers a lucrative business opportunity.

Market Restraints:

The market expansion is anticipated to be constrained by the availability of alternatives for magnesium oxide as a refractory use across end-use industries. In the refractory industry, magnesia is being replaced with alumina, chromite, and silica. Therefore, the growing use of magnesium oxide replacements is anticipated to restrain market expansion during the projection period. The market growth of magnesium oxide is anticipated to be hampered by adverse effects, including cramping and diarrhea related to its ingestion. Magnesium oxide exposure can occasionally also result in hives, a rash, weakness, lightheadedness, unusual weariness, nausea, and vomiting. This element is anticipated to limit the expansion of the magnesium oxide market.
