Magnesium Sulfate Market Size, Share, Trends, Demand, Growth, Analysis, Opportunities and Forecast 2024

Global Magnesium Sulfate Market: Information by Form (Crystal, Powder, Granules), Type (Heptahydrate [Epsom Salt], Anhydrous, Monohydrate), Application (Fertilizer, Medical, Food Additive, Industrial, Chemical), Region - Forecast till 2024

Market Highlights:

The Magnesium Sulfate Market is projected to be valued at USD 1,334.6 Million by the end of 2024 and expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.50% during the forecast period.

The demand for Magnesium Sulfate is increasing as a fertilizer in the agriculture industry as it is an essential nutrient for plant growth; it enhances food quality. It is a major source of magnesium, which in turn influences various metallic processes and reactions such as photophosphorylation (i.e., ATP formation in chloroplasts), photosynthetic carbon dioxide (CO2) fixation, protein synthesis, partitioning and utilization of photo-assimilates, generation of reactive oxygen species, and photooxidation in leaf tissues.

The Medical Application Segment is expected to be the second major consumer of magnesium sulfate, due to the increasing use of Magnesium Sulfate for the treatment of pre-eclampsia and eclampsia. Magnesium Sulfate is an anticonvulsant drug recommended by the WHO as an effective, safe, and low-cost treatment for severe pre-eclampsia and eclampsia. With the increasing number of fatalities, the need for treatment of pre-eclampsia and eclampsia is increasing, which is expected to boost the demand for Magnesium Sulfate in medical applications during the review period.

However, the adverse effects associated with the use of drugs produced by using Magnesium Sulfate is expected to hamper the growth of the global market to an extent during the forecast period. Nevertheless, the healthy growth of the personal care industry is expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for the producers of Magnesium Sulfate during the review period.

Segment Analysis:

The Global Magnesium Sulfate Market has been segmented on the basis of Form, Type, Application, and Region.

Based on Form, the global market has been segmented into crystal, powder, and granules.
