Analyzing the COVID-19 Effect: Demand for Magnesium Hydroxide to Remain Strong, Driven by Food and Medical Applications during the Outbreak – Future Market Insights – Press Release

Magnesium hydroxide manufacturers are investing in expanding their production capacities and collaborations with regional players to circumvent tariffs and trade restrictions during the pandemic.

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSSWIRE / June 9, 2020 / Despite the extremely disruptive nature of the pandemic, prospects of the magnesium hydroxide market look positive, primarily driven by pharmaceutical, industrial and water treatment applications. The pandemic is likely to cause disruptions in supply chains in the short term. However, applications as a food additive or medical and personal care product ingredient aids in the development of the industry. The worldwide magnesium hydroxide market is expected to reach US$ 1.5 Bn valuation during the projection period 2020 – 2030.

Also, niche applications as a fire retardant or waste water purification applications will help in creating profitable opportunities according to estimates from a FMI study. These trends will enable manufacturers to sustain operations and growth during the outbreak. Easy access to raw materials from brine or seawater will aid growth in the foreseeable future.

“The magnesium hydroxide industry was impacted by the effects of the tariff war between China and the United States. Now, with China being a major magnesium hydroxide producer, the high impact of the pandemic on the country, will substantially affect supply chains. On the other hand, the wide-ranging applications of magnesium hydroxide will result in the development of alternative sources in the coming years,” says the FMI analyst.

  • The incorporation of magnesium hydroxide as a building material is gaining ground at a fast rate.
  • In terms of revenue, North America is a prominent market, closely followed by Europe. Building and construction applications will provide major impetus in Asia Pacific.

Magnesium Hydroxide Market- Drivers

  • Extensive application of magnesium hydroxide in healthcare and pharmaceutical products is a primary growth factor.
  • Novel applications of magnesium hydroxide for desulfurization in fossil-fuel based power plants are generating lucrative opportunities.
  • Rising use of magnesium hydroxide by municipal bodies and industrial facilities in water treatment plants is also bolstering market performance.
  • Low, corrosiveness and toxicity, along with superior flame-retardant properties are supporting adoption.

Magnesium Hydroxide Market- Restraints

  • Strict government regulations on the use of magnesium hydroxide in the food and beverage industry is hampering growth.
  • Potential side effects such as loss of appetite, itching, and skin rashes, are also hindering the magnesium hydroxide market.

COVID-19 Impact on Magnesium Hydroxide Market

As most magnesium hydroxide stocks are used in healthcare and food applications, the demand for the material is likely to remain strong through the pandemic. However, the gap between demand and supply is likely to go up owing to supply chain disruptions and the overdependence of consumers on Chinese manufacturers.

However, the designation of medical and food production operations as essential by government bodies will help to mitigate losses during the crisis period, through optimization of supply chains. Also, magnesium hydroxide manufacturers seek to diversify their sources out of China, which will help in safeguarding operations in the long term.
