Magnesium Sulfate Price Trend for the Second Half of 2022

Asia Pacific

An oscillating trend in the prices of Magnesium Sulfate was observed in the third quarter of 2022. The prices suffered majorly due to the fluctuating prices of feedstock material and uncertainties in the demand. The imposition of Covid-19 restrictions aided in these declines and as a result, the downstream market retracted. This also led to a rise in inventories and a strong supply that struggled with the reduced number of offtakes, hence weak economic conditions were prevalent during the concerned period.


The market for Magnesium Sulfate declined initially in the third quarter, but the prices soared significantly towards the end of the quarter. This price trend was majorly attributed to the persistent energy crises due to the Russia-Ukraine war as it also hampered the trade of raw materials in this region. After an incline in the third quarter, the prices stumbled in the fourth quarter. High rates of energy production, a depreciating currency, and rising inflation rates negatively influenced the price trends for Magnesium Sulfate.

North America

A fluctuating trend in the prices of Magnesium Sulfate was seen in North America. The prices oscillated due to the weak demand from the end-user agriculture industry, raising the inventory levels. The demand somehow improved in the middle of the third quarter with a simultaneous positive impact on the inventories. The fourth quarter was favourable in terms of Magnesium Sulfate prices. The availability of high-priced products from the exporting nations amid uncertain feedstock supply caused the prices to incline in the domestic market.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the prices of Magnesium Sulfate are likely to follow an oscillating trend in the upcoming quarter as the demand from the end-user industries and cost of energy production seems to be uncertain in the foreseeable future.
