Magnesium Sulfate Price Trend

Raw material prices, as well as energy costs, have risen dramatically in recent years, influencing the overall cost of magnesium sulphate compounds. China is the world's largest producer of magnesium compounds, and changes in Chinese policy have influenced worldwide magnesium sulphate prices and availability. Because of environmental concerns, a magnesium facility in China was shut down, affecting the price and supply of magnesia. Furthermore, the use of explosives and other machinery in magnesite mines has been restricted by the governments of many nations, resulting in a shortage of raw materials. Prices for high-grade dead-burned magnesia were also rising, owing to strong demand and limited availability. Environmental issues in many places have a continuing impact on high-quality production and costs. As a result of market volatility and availability, the global supply of magnesium sulphate has tightened.
