Magnesium Carbonate Market Forecasted to Reach US$ 443.5 Million by 2032: A Comprehensive Analysis

The global magnesium carbonate market is anticipated to expand at a steady 4.7% CAGR over the forecast period, finds Future Market Insights (FMI) in a recent market analysis. Magnesium carbonate is largely utilized as a raw material for the manufacturing of magnesium oxide, a refractory material employed in the cement and steel industries.

In recent years, companies are focusing on developing new materials with high purity at competitive prices. Magnesium carbonate, due to its small size, high porosity, and non-toxicity, is adopted in the pharmaceutical industry. Pharmaceutical grade magnesium carbonate is preferred for the treatment of hyperchlorhydria, stomach aches and duodenal ulcers. It is also used in the surging demand from the paint and inks industry as a flattening agent, rheological modifier, and translucent filler, which has increased the consumption.

Ongoing expansion of sectors such as glass and ceramics, steel, cement, paints and inks, pharmaceuticals, and paper in countries such as China and India is predicted to propel growth in Asia Pacific in the global magnesium carbonate market. Due to increasing demand from pharmaceuticals, steel, and cement sectors in nations across North America, the Middle East, and Africa are likely to augment the growth in the market.

As per FMI, geographically, the market is anticipated to be dominated by South Asia Pacific, which is expected to continue in the forthcoming years. Backed by the aforementioned factors, the global magnesium carbonate market is projected to top US$ 443.5Mn by 2032.

“Over the forecast period, sales of magnesium carbonates are expected to be driven by the growing pharmaceutical industry across the globe followed by the production of magnesium oxide and other vital end-use industries.” says an FMI analyst.
