Magnesium Hydroxide Market 2021 | Scope of Current and Future Industry 2030

Consistently increasing demand for magnesium hydroxide for wastewater treatment is expected to shape the growth of the global magnesium hydroxide market during the forecast period (2020-2030). Although the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to hinder market growth during the first half of the forecast period, the global magnesium hydroxide market is projected to attain a market value of US$ 850 Mn by the end of 2030. As per the latest study published by Future Market Insights (FMI), the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to have a short-term impact on the growth prospects of the global magnesium hydroxide market.

At present, applications of magnesium hydroxide extend beyond wastewater treatment, as it is being increasingly being used for an array of applications including gold mining, warehouses, antacid, thermal conduction, and the wet pallet collodion process among others.

High Demand for Wastewater Treatment Projected to Augment Market Growth

Over the past couple of decades, magnesium hydroxide is increasingly being used for wastewater treatment applications across the developed as well as the developing regions. As governments across the world continue to emphasize on improving wastewater treatment techniques, magnesium hydroxide has emerged as an ideal candidate. At present, due to the advantages presented by magnesium hydroxide slurry, its adoption is projected to outpace that of lime and caustic soda.

In addition, apart from being an ideal alternative for wastewater treatment, magnesium hydroxide is extensively being used for acid neutralization of industrial wastewater. As the industrial applications of magnesium hydroxide expand, the industrial-grade magnesium hydroxide will gain stronger traction to capture a higher revenue share in the global market.

Short-term Ramifications of COVID-19 Pandemic

FMI study states that the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a short-term impact on the overall growth prospects of the global magnesium hydroxide market. The market study predicts that the demand will remain sluggish during the coronavirus outbreak as the governments across the world continue to enforce trade restrictions due to which, market players are expected to address the supply chain challenges put forward by the crisis.
