Magnesium Sulphate Market Forecast Revised in a New Future Market Insights Report as COVID-19 Projected to Hold a Massive Impact on Sales in 2021

The magnesium sulphate market is projected to expand robustly, registering a CAGR of 5.3% in volume terms and 5.7% in value terms respectively. Alternatively known as Epsom Salt, magnesium sulphate has registered widespread applications across the pharmaceutical, agricultural and food processing sectors.

As the global population expands, the scope of the food and pharmaceutical industries have significantly widened. Over the years, magnesium sulphate has been widely used to treat and prevent low blood magnesium and seizures in women with eclampsia. It is also used to manufacture nutraceuticals and fertilizers.

Majority of the market demand is likely to be generated from emerging economies such as India, Brazil and China. This is primarily because of the concentration of the world’s maximum population and the subsequent development of the agricultural and healthcare industries. Therefore, the market will enjoy a positive growth curve.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The current pandemic crisis has ushered in a major era of uncertainty. The alarming rate of expansion in the number of infections renders it extremely unlikely for the industrial and service sectors to resume operations on a full-fledged basis. This is expected to generate major downturns in the magnesium sulphate market.

Several end-use industries such as cement, paper & pulp, construction and food processing have taken a severe hit in terms of production and supply. Industrial output has drastically reduced, diminishing demand for magnesium sulphate for several production applications.

Further shortages have occurred due to cessation of magnesium mining operations. This is particularly true for the American and Chinese markets, the latter being the epicenter of the outbreak. A slow recovery path is projected for the market in the long-term.

Competitive Intelligence

Prominent players in the magnesium sulphate market are emphasizing on establishing regional sales offices across emerging countries. This is in addition to their dependence on distributors, as this assists them in promoting and marketing their products more effectively.

Simultaneously, players such as PQ Corporation and K+S Aktiengesellschaft are concentrating on mature markets such as U.S and Europe in order to expand production capacities and compete with emerging markets such as China.

Investments in expanding productive capacity will prove beneficial for expansion of operations. For instance, K+S commissioned a new facility at Werra amounting to € 34 million to increase its magnesium sulphate production capacity twofold.

Other prominent players include Giles Chemical, Rech Chemical Co., Mag Products India Private Limited, Mani Agro Chemical Pvt. Ltd., PERSIA PAYA MADAN, ZIBO JINXING CHEMICAL CO LTD., and Laizhou Guangcheng Chemical Co. among others.
