North Korea tipped to be a significant future player in Magnesia industry

Alison Saxby, director at Roskill, spoke to Proactive’s Andrew Scott following the release of Roskill’s new 2018 report for magnesium compounds.

Saxby says China has dominated world magnesia supply for decades, accounting for 70% of world production capacity and 60% of world production.

She adds supply tightness affecting certain magnesia markets is expected to persist for the foreseeable future.
