Global Magnesium Oxide Market to Reach US$ 16 Billion by 2033 with a 10% CAGR

According to industry forecasts, the value of the magnesium oxide market is expected to surge to US$ 6.15 billion by 2023 and is projected to further escalate to US$ 16 billion by 2033, with a robust growth rate of 10% CAGR. This remarkable expansion is primarily driven by the increasing demand for health supplements, as magnesium oxide is highly effective in addressing heartburn and digestive issues. Moreover, a variety of other magnesium compounds, both naturally occurring in foods and as supplements, can also be employed to enhance magnesium levels within the body.

Migraine patients, including those suffering from cluster headaches or menstrual migraines, often have low magnesium levels, and magnesium oxide supplements may provide some relief. A migraine may be caused by the interruption of brain signals that are caused by magnesium ions provided by magnesium oxide. In order to be effective, a daily dose of 400–500 milligrams may be required. Starting with a smaller dose may help control diarrhea, which is also a possible side effect of this dose.

Several over-the-counter supplements have been found to improve symptoms associated with chronic constipation, including magnesium oxide. Research conducted by King’s College London’s Department of Nutritional Sciences examines how food additions, vitamins, and minerals affect stool output, gut transit times, complaints, and quality of life in adults with chronic constipation.

Low blood pressure, irregular heartbeats, slowed breathing and confusion may also be caused by high doses of magnesium oxide. Death or coma is possible in some cases, but only in very serious cases. As a result, other nutrients are imbalanced and toxicity is present. While magnesium supplements have been shown to have a variety of benefits, magnesium oxide’s bioavailability ranges from zero to four percent. Researchers are concerned that using magnesium oxide as a measurement of magnesium effectiveness will harm the reputation of magnesium as a health concern similar to depression.

Competitive Landscape

Magnesium oxide players around the world are facing stiff competition. A cost-effective and broader product line will enable them to maintain their leading position in the highly competitive market.

The key industry players are Martin Marietta Inc., Grecian Magnesite S.A., Premier Magnesia LLC, Ube Industries Ltd., Robert Half International AG, Magnezit Group Europe GmbH, Magnesita Refratarios S.A., Kuma, Manyezit Sanayi A., Xinyang Mineral Group, and Israel Chemical Ltd.

Market Developments Include:

  • In November 2022, West High Yield (W.H.Y.) Resources Ltd. released its PFS for its high-purity MgO industrial production facility, with a cost accuracy of +/- 20% based on National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, located near Rossland, British Columbia, a project that is in an intermediate-advanced exploration stage. Using the Company’s high-purity MgO plant, the Company will provide an alternative to currently dominant Chinese operations that convert carbonate ores into magnesium oxide. In turn, this will provide high purity MgO products from an independent, green, and secure Canadian source to U.S. and European customers.
  • In May 2023, the ACG and AGA released their joint clinical practice guidelines with ten evidence-based recommendations, including magnesium oxide and senna, for treating chronic idiopathic constipation. A conditional recommendation was made for fiber, lactulose, senna, magnesium oxide, sodium picosulfate, lubiprostone, linaclotide, plecanatide and prucalopride, while strong recommendations were made for polyethylene glycol, sodium picosulfate, and linaclotide.
