Magnesium Oxide Market Share, Industry Growth, Trend, Key Companies by 2027

 The global magnesium oxide market is expected to reach USD 8.43 Billion by 2027, according to a new report by Reports and Data. The growth of the market is attributed to growing applications of magnesium oxide.

Magnesium oxide finds widespread application in the steel industry as a refractory product. It is frequently impregnated with carbon (for instance, pitch, tar, and graphite) to offer the best features for corrosion resistance in atmospheres of basic slags, specifically in slag lines of treatment ladles or BOF (Basic Oxygen Steelmaking) furnaces. Monolithic gunnables, spinel formulations, castables, and magnesia carbon-based refractory bricks, all produced using magnesium oxide, are extensively used for the purpose of basic steel refractory linings.  Moreover, these products find application in ferroalloy, glass, and ceramic kiln applications, among others.

Growing demand for magnesium oxide in the construction industry is expected to grow at the fastest rate in the forecast period. It is utilized as a constituent of cement mixture for use in residential and commercial construction of buildings. Depending on the proportion of magnesium oxide mixed, it can be deployed in an extensive range of general building applications that require mold and mildew control, fire resistance, and sound control, among other benefits. Magnesium oxide, being an environmentally friendly building material, may be drilled, sawed, and fastened to wood or steel framing.
