Magnesium Hydroxide Market Research, 2031

The global magnesium hydroxide market was valued at $0.6 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $1.1 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2022 to 2031.

Magnesium hydroxide is widely used in aerobic and anaerobic biological treatment systems in meat processing plants, bakeries, and chemical processing plants. It is used to treat industrial metal-laden acidic wastewater, producing less sludge volume, and a filter cake that de-waters faster than caustic soda or lime.

The increasing demand for magnesium hydroxide for various applications, such as environmental protection, flame retardance, and pharmaceutical is expected to serve as a crucial growth factor for the global magnesium hydroxide market. Also, rise in use of magnesium hydroxide in the pharmaceutical industry is another key factor that can stimulate the magnesium hydroxide market growth during the forecast period. However, availability of substitutes is anticipated to hamper the growth of the global magnesium hydroxide market. On the contrary, increase in demand for magnesium hydroxide in the steel industry is expected to generate lucrative opportunities for the global magnesium hydroxide industry.

Slurry segment dominated the global magnesium hydroxide market in 2021

Slurry segment dominated the global magnesium hydroxide market in terms of revenue, in 2021. Magnesium hydroxide slurry is a safe and cost-effective treatment option to neutralize industrial and municipal wastewater streams. Besides, it can be effectively used in aerobic processes where sufficient agitation and retention time are provided. It maintains a pH between 6.0 and 9.0, and is a superior source of alkalinity, which is optimal for application in aerobic and anaerobic biological treatment systems. It offers nutrients essential to growth and results in more rapid aerobic digestion, primarily in denitrification systems.

Wastewater Treatment segment dominated the global magnesium hydroxide market in 2021

Wastewater treatment segment dominated the global magnesium hydroxide market. Magnesium hydroxide has found widespread application in the treatment of industrial metal-laden acidic effluent. Magnesium hydroxide has good removal effects on many contaminants in water, including inorganic pollutants and organic pollutants.

COVID-19 Analysis:

The COVID-19 pandemic had a major impact on the global magnesium hydroxide market. It negatively impacted the supply as well as the import and export of chemicals. The COVID-19 pandemic adversely hit the electronic industry globally with tremendous loss to businesses, which cannot be quantified. Electronics and electrical gadgets, such as computers, laptops, phones, televisions, and home appliances, as well as wires and cables are frequently treated with flame retardants.

However, magnesium hydroxide are highly demanded in the pharmaceutical industry for short-term treatment for occasional constipation in children and adults, as well as an antacid with a gradual neutralizing activity and a modest laxative action. Further, increasing levels of magnesium may help COVID-19 patients successfully combat the virus. Due to the COVID 19 outbreak, the health awareness among the populace has grown and the pharmaceutical sector has grown during the pandemic. The pharmaceutical manufacturing industry was worth $405.52 billion in 2020 and is predicted to increase at an 11.34% compound annual growth rate from 2021 to 2028. Thus, the growing demand from pharmaceutical sector is predicted to drive the global magnesium hydroxide market during the pandemic.
