Magnesite Market

Magnesite Market: Global Industry Analysis 2012 – 2016 and Opportunity Assessment; 2017 – 2027

Magnesite chemical nomenclature as MgCO3 is commonly known as a carbonate of magnesium. Magnesite is mostly found as irregular veins as an alternative product of serpentine magnesium rich rock and ultramafic rocks and molded by replacement of dolomitic limestone and dolomite. Magnesite is commercially refered as magnesium products, like magnesium oxide (magnesia, MgO). The primary application of magnesite is the production of magnesium oxide and that consist of two mutual grades such as and fused magnesia (FM) and dead burned magnesia (DBM). Moreover, fused magnesia is mostly applied in electrical insulating and refractory markets. The prime end-use sector for the refractory material is steel and iron industry that register around 70% of magnesite demand in volume terms. Also, applications of magnesium and its compounds such as chemical industry, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, environmental area, construction, and many others.

Magnesite Market: Drivers & Restraints

The major factors boosting the growth of magnesite market are rising demand of magnesite in construction and chemical industry, and increasing production of its product type across the globe. Moreover, the magnesite market is growing due to growing demand from the refractory application, majorly in steel & iron industry. Magnesite is highly required in the refractory industries, and demand for refractories is likely to be boosted by increasing global steel& iron output. In terms of end-user application, around 65% of magnesite is used in refractory industries and thus increasing the growth of overall magnesite market in coming years. As, fused magnesia is expected to contribute high share among all product types of magnesite and thus increase the growth of the market in forecast years. Furthermore, growing cement consumption across the globe, magnesite use as a cement additive in the cement industry is majorly driving the growth of the magnesite market.  Increasing use of magnesium oxide in growing demand for magnesite application in wastewater treatment, magnesia-based wallboards, and animal feed and are the key supporter for the positive impact on the growth of magnesite market over the forecast period. On the other side, environmental and government regulations implemented on reducing environmental pollution emanating from steel production among other industries are major the challenge faced by magnesite manufacturers. Moreover, magnesite substitutes are also hindering the growth of the market in forecast years.
