Magnesium Compounds and Chemicals: Global Industry Markets & Outlook, 12th edition 2013

Roskill's 12th report on Magnesium Compounds and Chemicals has been published.

A potential sea-change in magnesia supply is on the horizon. China, the world’s largest producer, is undergoing a modernisation plan that will eliminate much of its older technology and excess capacity. Simultaneously, the international market is reducing its dependence on Chinese exports. New projects in the rest of the world could add up to 1.8Mtpy of all types of magnesia capacity between 2011 and 2015 – up to 500,000tpy of which has already come online.

This latest report from Roskill covers the whole magnesia industry – speciality/industrial grades, caustic calcined magnesia (CCM), dead burned magnesia (DBM) and fused magnesia (FM).
