Assessment of COVID-19 Impact: Producers of Magnesium Carbonate Minerals Forced to Temporarily Halt Operations, as Demand Slows Down – Future Market Insights

Key companies in the magnesium carbonate mineral industry are focusing on capturing potential market opportunities in the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors.

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / May 20, 2020 / The magnesium carbonate mineral market is witnessing significant disruptions in supply chains of major regional markets. Uncertainty over capital markets and the impact of the pandemic on global economy is likely to hit the industry for the short term. The magnesium carbonate minerals market is projected to cross a value pool of US$ 208 Mn by the end of 2020. Widespread critical applications of magnesium carbonate minerals in construction, personal care, and medicine will aid in recovery of demand following the end of the pandemic. Demand for magnesium carbonate minerals will expand 1.7X between 2020 and 2030, as projected by a new Future Market Insights (FMI) study.

“Pharmaceutical, medical, and personal care industries are in fact gaining the momentum as a result of COVID-19 pandemic. This would result in multiple changes over the coming years, and the market will witness demand growth,” says the FMI Analyst.
