Increasing Demand from Asia Pacific to Help Drive Growth of Global Magnesium Derivatives Market

Industry Insights

In recent years, there has been a growing demand for magnesium derivatives which has contributed to the overall development of the global market. Different magnesium derivatives such as magnesium chloride, magnesium sulfate, and magnesium hydroxide have flame retardant and smoke suppressant properties. These derivatives are used for reducing flammability in broad range of applications and materials. Growth in the number of fire accidents and issuance of stricter fire safety guidelines and regulations across the globe are also helping to drive the adoption of magnesium derivatives. Several major industries are adopting proactive steps in order to avoid fire outages and accidents. This too is helping the growth of the global market. Some of the other key factors for the development of the global magnesium derivatives market include rise in demand for food, increasing demand for sulfur free fertilizers, growing magnesium deficiency in soil due to excessive usage of ammonia based fertilizers, and dwindling of cultivation area.
