Magnesium is a chemical element. Magnetic derivatives such as magnesium oxide, chloride, hydroxide, carbonate, sulfate and many others are widely used in various industrial applications across the globe. Major application of these magnesium derivatives include wastewater treatment, refractories, resin processing, magnesium oxide feedstock, flame retardant, de-icing in road treatment, dust suppression and in manufacturing of pharmaceutical products.
Rapid industrialization and urbanization, increasing consumption of plant-based diet by people across the globe, and a surge in the demand for refractory and furnaces application is anticipated to propel the magnesium derivatives market during the estimated period. Likewise, factors such as growing number of stringent government regulations regarding industrial wastewater treatment, rising significance of magnesium derivatives in the pharmaceutical industry, ongoing research and development in the field of magnesium derivative, rise in demand for food and for sulfur free fertilizers and growing magnesium deficiency in soil are expected to improve growth of the market across the globe. However, possibility of potential health hazard by magnesium derivatives is major restraining factor that could hamper the growth of the market.
The study analyses Global Magnesium Derivatives Market based on type, product & application and geography.
Based on type, the global magnesium derivative market is segmented into hydromagnesite and dypingite. The market for hydromagnesite segment is likely to witness fast growth during the estimated timeframe. Hydromagnesite is a hydrated magnesium carbonate mineral. It is the most widely used magnesium derivative in various industrial applications. In industries it can be used as a mixture with huntite as a fire retardant or flame retardant additive for polymers.
Based on application, magnesium oxide segment is expected to hold largest market share during the projected time. The magnesium oxide segment is further sub-segmented into industrial (furnaces & boilers), water & wastewater treatment, agriculture, building & construction, chemical intermediates and others. A surge in the adoption of magnesium oxides in industrial and wastewater treatment applications is accredited to the market growth. For instance, in water and wastewater treatment industry it is used in two major applications. These applications are defined where magnesium oxide can be used to purify process water in two ways such as to precipitate dissolved heavy metals and to filter out suspended solids.
Geographically, the study is comprised of the key countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. Asia Pacific held the largest market share of global magnesium derivatives market and is likely to dominate the market over the estimated time frame. The countries such as China, India and Japan dominated the market in APAC region. Rapid expansion of infrastructure and manufacturing industry across the region, a surge in the demand for refractory bricks for iron furnaces and lining steel, increasing consumer preference for sustainable and quality products, and growing research & development activities in the field of steel, water treatment, manufacturing and many others are major growth factors that attributed to the growth of the market across the APAC region.
The major key players of market includes Causmag International, Grecian Magnesite, Baymag Inc, Compass Minerals, Gongyi Qianghong Magnesium Technology Co., Ltd, IBAR Nordeste, Intrepid Potash, Inc, K+S Group, Karnalyte Resources Inc, Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties, LLC, NIKOMAG, Oksihim, Ltd, OLE Chemical, RHI Magnesita, Sinwon Chemical Co., Ltd, Tateho Co., Ltd and Yingkou Magnesite Chemical Ind Group Co., Ltd among others.
The study analyses global Magnesium Derivatives market based on type, product & application, and geography. Magnesium Derivatives market by type is segmented into. The polyethylene segment is likely to dominate the market over the forecast period. Increased adoption of polyethylene material in fresh packaging technology owing to its several benefits such as low cost and high resistance property is attributed to the market growth. By product and application, the market is segmented into. The meat product segment is likely to register fastest growth in years to come owing to the growing adoption of meat products by consumers across the globe. Geographically, the study is comprised of the key countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World.
