A key factor driving the growth of the market is the progress in the automotive industry. Magnesium has been extensively used in the automotive industry since the 1920s. Its lightweight features enable its application in the production of cars and other commercial vehicles, offering high fuel efficiency, increased performance, and sustainability. Several automotive companies have replaced the use of steel and aluminum with magnesium. This is because magnesium offers several advantages in automotive applications such as decrease in the overall weight of the vehicle, improvement in handling and turning capabilities as the center of gravity is shifted toward the rear of the car, tuning of magnesium parts that helps in achieving frequencies that reduce vibration and overall noise, higher strength in comparison to steel, and cost-effectiveness.

This market research report on the global magnesite market 2018-2022 also provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook during the forecast period. Technavio classifies an emerging trend as a major factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.

In this report, Technavio highlights the growing demand for refractories from the steel industry as another crucial driver for growth in the global magnesite market:

Global magnesite market: Growing demand for refractories from the steel industry

Magnesite, an effective refractory material, can withstand extreme heat and thus is of major significance in a multitude of industrial processes. The steel industry is the main end-user of refractory magnesia for refractory brick linings. The iron and steel industry accounts for two-thirds of all usage of refractory materials at the global level. From coke ovens to blast furnaces, refractories are important in manufacturing processes.

“The rapid industrialization and urbanization in the developed and developing nations present major growth opportunities for iron and steel manufacturers. Steel has wide applicability across the building and construction, automotive, aviation, and oil and gas industries across the globe. Steel casting is a method where liquified steel is poured into the mold, made of sand or ceramic plater, to create the desired shape. Thus, the rapid increase in steel casting market is expected to increase the demand for refractories during the forecast period, thus driving the growth of the magnesite market,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals.
