Market Synopsis:

As per the Market Research Future (MRFR) report analysis, the Global Magnesium Oxide Market is set to reach the value of USD 5,376.5 million by 2023. The global market is estimated to expand at CAGR 5.34% in terms of value and 5.07% in terms of volume during the forecast period (2017-2023). The automotive industry has been the key driver behind the Magnesium Oxide market growth in the past few years. However, the global market has been gaining traction in other industries as well, such as iron & steel industry and agriculture. Moreover, dead-burned magnesia and fused magnesia produced are used in refractory application. Besides refractories, it is also used in animal feed, fertilizers and pulp bleaching, and others. Thus, the versatile Magnesium Oxide finds a variety of applications across a diverse set of industries, which fuels the global market growth. Furthermore, rise in global industrialization and the focus on cleaner and sustainable industry practices have led to immense growth in the market. Also worth noting is that one of the biggest users of Magnesium Oxide is the wastewater treatment industry, due to its efficiency and cost-effectiveness compared to other chemicals.

While the future prospects for the global market seem bright, few restraints may hinder the growth in the future. These include use of magnesia substitutes that can undermine the demand for magnesium oxide in some ways. However, the demand for Magnesium Oxide will not dwindle in any way as the metal oxide is prized as a refractory material. It is ideal for various applications as it is physically and chemically stable at high temperatures along with two useful attributes which are high thermal conductivity and low electrical conductivity.

A prominent trend steadily gaining momentum globally is backward integration by refractory companies to ensure there is a consistent supply of raw materials. This results in improved efficiency and cost savings for the company and proves to be an ideal strategic move for the global magnesium oxide market.
